Oh, what a year it has been!
Our first year on the farm.
Cutting hay, butchering chickens, canning food, and then cooling off with an icy dip in the creek.
A cycle of seasons in a valley that's stolen my heart.
And so, so much more.
And somehow also finding my authentic voice here.
Today is our Solstice celebration. Our biggest and favorite family celebration of the year!
If you dropped by today you'd find us rolling or dipping candles; decorating our gingerbread houses; and eating too many cookies.
We'll be sledding; maybe skiing; and hiking in the woods for a campfire at dusk.
We'll be stoking the wood-fired hot tup for a midnight soak, and staying up way past everyone's bedtime on this longest night of the year.
And we'll be sharing wished and dreams for the coming year with each other in the quiet darkness.
Happy Solstice to each and every one of you.
