Brett jumped right in to help me. It was such a great evening. It's amazing how much fun you can have by doing something so simple. It wasn't even that it was actually the making of the strawberry jam that was so fun. It was just the fact that we were doing it together. We ended up making quite a bit of jam! After we had finished cleaning up, we starting talking.. it's interesting the things that bring joy to our lives and the things that really don't. Making jam. It's to good to have moments like that to serve as little reminders.
