Do you believe in symbolism when it comes to every day items and the significance we place on them as we go about life? I do, I guess. I’ve had a lemon tree in a pot on our porch ever since we moved. Technically, it was Jeseca’s lemon tree, but Christian said he wanted to take care of it shortly after she died and we’ve had it in the pot ever since.

Christian got a new bike for Christmas. He desperately needed it. His older bike was fit for a 4-year-old and wreaked of rust as he rode by.
