hello! i did this little taking stock "inventory" last fall and thought it would be fun to fill out again. so much changes in each season and it is fun to pause and reflect on these things before it passes by. certainly i am guilty of wanting to move to the next stage of life while forgetting that i am in midst of a beautiful season. so, taking stock part two. please copy and paste if you would like to play along. i love reading everyones answers!
