Today I started my garden.
I posted an Instagram photo that read, “The beginnings of love stories are usually the most fun! This instance is no different,” with a photo of my hands as I began planting one of my first plants; a kale plant. And it is true. With every seed I spread and every plant I planted I found myself pouring my love and energy into the ground.
I am now very tired, my body aches. But it is that good kind of ache, when you know you have done something worthy of your energy. My body might be tired, but my soul… My soul is happy.
