My son loves all things nature - here's proof! Journaling reads: "No, I did not tell my kid to do this! I admit that I may be a bit of a 'tree hugger' myself, but I, in no way, influenced Troy to hug this tree! I swear it! He just went right up to the tree, wrapped his arms around it, and squeezed. Then, he even tried to kiss it! I guess there's no doubt about it that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree."
Striped strips read: "That is happiness: to be dissolved into something complete and great." "Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard. Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh. Choose with no regret. Continue to learn. Appreciate your friends. Do what you love. Love as if this is all there is." Vellum quote reads: "You're never too big or too old for a hug..." I wrote below: "just ask a TREE!"
