The other night my husband asked me why I changed my blog's focus from our daughter and parenting to gardening. It dawned on me that perhaps I have not made my focus clear, and thus there was some confusion about the different things I choose to blog about. My focus has not changed, only my means to reach my focus.
Cultivating the Wonder = parenting in a way that facilitates the growth of my children creatively, intellectually, and spiritually. My posts about gardening are really about family, about the time and effort that needs to be put in to make something grow and be fruitful. They are about my daughter seeing nature as part of our daily lives, as something that provides for us because we provide for them (our plants), as something to respect and care for as we do our own family. When I post about food, it is because I believe that taking the time to cook for family, to select and prepare the ingredients, and to sit down together to eat are all acts of love; they contribute to the cultivation of a family. Please do not be misguided and think that this is a blog about food, or a blog about gardening, or even a blog about my daughter. This is a blog about the choices I make, we make as a family, to grow together, learn together, and keep the wonder of life alive within us.
