But the start of this school year is bringing a little heaviness to my heart as my oldest son starts his senior year in high school. Although this will be a super exciting year, it will also be an emotional one.
Lucky for me, seniors get to leave campus for lunch. And lucky for me, my senior has been coming home for lunch. These off-campus lunches have been a highlight of my day, as he spills out enthusiastic stories of the start of school while inhaling his meal.
This special back to school lunch nourished our bodies, preparing us for the rest of the day ahead, while the one-on-one time with my senior nourished my heart.
