November Anticipation

Friends, I am so inspired by all of you. It seems like everyone is upping their blogging game and writing the coziest and most lovely posts - I am loving it! I'm dropping in today to share some pictures of life around here lately. We've been having afternoon teatime everyday and this makes me so... Continue Reading →

Sunday Catch Up

Greetings, fellow bloggers! This morning I've managed to wake up nice and early and sit down with a hot cup of coffee. The wind is blowing and, while it's still pitch black outside, I can hear the leaves falling. This a morning rhythm I've missed over the last few months and am hoping to invite... Continue Reading →

Weekend | Week 34 in 2021

Welp. It sure was another week, wasn't it? I kept things simple: we had the week off from school and I didn't put any pressure on us to do anything other than play, which made all the difference in the world given the state of things in the world. Today's post will also be super... Continue Reading →

Weekend | Week 33 in 2021

I don't think anyone can say this is a particularly joyful weekend given the state of the world. I wanted to write this post yesterday but couldn't quite bring myself to do it. But of course, the point of this practice is to find joy even when it seems like there isn't any, so here... Continue Reading →

Full of Joy Friday | Mushroom Edition

Last week I mentioned that we have a ton of mushrooms this year. I've been taking pictures of them all week and am sharing them here today, plus a few other lovely bits from the yard -- including a freshly hatched monarch butterfly chrysalis. The humidity has finally moved out and the mourning doves sound... Continue Reading →

Gardens | Early March 2021

Hi, friends! This is a weird time for me to publish a blog post, I know. It feels rushed, but I wanted to document where we are right now with our gardens. The week is going to steadily warm up and the snow will start to melt quickly -- and I just love being able... Continue Reading →

Early April Gardens

I've been counting down for spring flowers since the dead of winter. I'm a transplant to New Hampshire and am from warm and sunny Texas - where Spring starts in earnest in late February and life is abundant by March. That's just not the case here - everything is still pretty brown, but we do... Continue Reading →

Random Friday

Happy Friday, kindred spirits. I'm sharing a smattering of pictures from the last month or so. Life has been quiet - just how I like it. My biggest bear was a ghost for Halloween and he loved scaring everyone. I've taken short walks after getting both boys on their respective buses and am taking in... Continue Reading →

Into the Woods

There's a rail trail in the woods behind our house. It's about a half mile down a steep and rocky bluff so there's not really an easy way to get there. We've always loaded everyone into the car and driven to an easier access point, but it's always felt like a shame to do that.... Continue Reading →


Life is slow paced right now and I'm loving it. I've been itching to write because I want to, not because I feel like I should. Figuring out where writing fits in my summer rhythm has been tricky because while I'm enjoying a slow life, I'm also embracing a full life. My early mornings have... Continue Reading →
