This evening we cozied up in our neighbors’ home–delighting in each other’s company and enjoying a big cast iron pot of stew. Feeling quite blessed indeed.

We are currently accepting all good juju when it comes to containers. We have searched high and low and the search continues…not at all the part of this project we thought we’d get hung up on. But for now, there is hard cider on the stove, a little one dreaming, and magic outside our door. P1040184Perhaps we should take a lesson in letting go from the smallest of this tribe. Take a moment to eat a snowflake, play until our noses freeze, and let it all fall into place. Good night everyone.
