I think the most enduring lesson I was taught through my experiences of being a Girl Scout was that I was a member of a larger community. I out-grew my uniforms and badges years ago, but the memories of visiting nursing homes or organizing Earth Day tree plantings or my summers camping with girls from all different backgrounds will stay with me always.
What with all the snow days this week, picking up the Girl Scout cookies proved to be a little more difficult than it should be.
But it's all good, because now I have a whole porch full of them!
For 2012, I am finally doing Project 365, which is something I've wanted to do for a very long time. While I'm not super good at posting the pictures daily, I haven't missed a day yet, and it's now March. I can't wait to have the entire year's worth of daily photos...what a treasure it will be!
I am the mother to three beautiful, brilliant and bossy daughters. I'm married to Joel, Dr. Maestro Orchestra Conductor extraordinaire. When I'm not working on my mother of the year status, you can find me singing professionally, teaching voice lessons at the University or in my home, taking lots and lots of photographs, listening to opera, finding a good deal on groceries, reading a good book, or maybe even scrapbooking (that is, if I'm not blogging). Life is definitely overstuffed, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
