Eva Prince (56 years), Gideon (49 years), Dahlia (11 years)
Most of our days are routine, Gideon is working on a new research grant letter. His previous horticulture project at the university has completed, and he’s ready to tackle his next big questions. He loathes this part of the job the most. I can’t say I’m terribly fond myself, as he stays up late into the night, and I don’t like going to bed alone.
I usually spend my evenings with Dahlia. Even though she’s eleven, she still enjoys cuddling with her Mama, and I’m not complaining.

For years, Dad has been promising Mom an escape to Queen Victoria Isle, and I’m not alone in thinking it’d never happen. And I wish I had been right. Dad surprised Mom with the trip one night at bedtime.
It’s two in the morning when Lauren can’t ignore her contractions any longer. They get checked in quickly enough, then Isaac is holding her and massaging her back as the contractions come.
It’s just past four when Dr. Morgan says it’s time to push. Lauren had second doubts about this whole delivery bit, and Isaac was barely holding himself together.
Hadley Millett (29 years), Rosabella Steinman (28)
narrated by: Hadley
Rosabella and Trey have been dating about two years, and while he may be interested in marriage, she isn’t quite there yet. Which is a relief to me, first because I don’t want to hunt a new roommate, and second, because neither of them can cook; she’d likely die.
Clio and Thea Browning celebrate their fourth birthday. They are both excited to start preschool the next fall and be at school with their sister Mavis. She told them sometimes she might have lunch with them, and they can’t wait!
Clio is outgoing, she is looking forward to building friendships in school. She also isn’t interested in stories like her Mom and brother; she loves science and experiments.
She takes after her Mom the most, but with her Dad’s coloring.
Alice London (28 years), Julia Millett (27 years),
Julia and Elias have only been dating for six months, and Alice feels they’re moving too quickly. Elias stays over regularly now that the harvest is over, and Alice would like some time with her own boyfriend without Elias squeezing in the center.
Alice and Martin will be together for two years come March, and he definitely stays in his own bed more than hers.

Finn McCarthy (57 years), Nicole (57 years), Elias (24 years)
Since Marta quit after her demotion, Zoe-Gen had struggled to find employees. Nicole had interviewed Lulu Grimsley, and then the girl had the audacity to refuse the job offer. Hiring was a weary process, but even more pressing with Lily-Mae starting at EU in a month.
She had called Riley Gray to come in after seeing her application. Failing to get a fashion degree from EU was mildly alarming, but it wasn’t enough to say no. Bethany Louie had zero experience when hired, and she’d just been promoted to assistant.
