Deep Gratitude

Deep Gratitude

We spent some very intentional time with The Boys over the last few days...watching them, playing with them, feeding them grain...thanking them. Thanking them for their lessons... For their beauty... For their grace. Thanking them for stepping into our lives and showing us another piece of ourselves in this grand puzzle that is our journey. : : : : :¬†…

Shown, Unshown – September-into-October

I've been missing this space and, being so full of so many stories to tell, unsure of how to make a re-entry. And so here we are, more than half-way through October and I'm barely editing many of September's captures. I'll chalk it up to the busy-ness of work and Studio Tour prep, farm life and family life.

Late Summer Kitchen & Garden Update – The Season of Abundance

Late Summer Kitchen & Garden Update – The Season of Abundance

Where the heck did summer go? How is it possibly already September?! And why is the season shifting so swiftly?! And yet it is. The shift from summer to fall is upon us... With the first leaves turning, the later sunrises, the stormy afternoons, the fruit in pure abundance, and the necessity for a hoodie during morning chores, the season…
Granny Square Blanket – Complete

Granny Square Blanket – Complete

It's finished! It's finally finished! It took two full months and more brain power than I anticipated to complete (being a new-to-me stitch and all) but it's all done and I'm pretty happy with my first ever Granny Square blanket! A photo posted by Melissa (@evergrowingfarm) on Aug 28, 2016 at 4:16pm PDT I learned a ton along the way...including…
