Morning light at Grandma June's. Where it all began. 100 acres, an old dilapidated farmhouse, and the promise of hard work and deep peace: $350 (can you imagine? 😳). She went on to buy almost 300 more surrounding acres over time, and that land, divided up, is what other family members (🙋🏻) created their own homesteads on. 🌲 #northeastkingdom #vermont
It's all fun and games until you're left with piecing together white snow and night sky. 😬
Give me all the colored gel pens and blank planners. 😍 #freshstart #virgo
Most of your favorites happened within the last 6 weeks. Mine too! ❤️ I am not succinct enough to process 2018 in the 400 words IG allows (and cannot get to the blog for a proper post while my mom is here), but I will say this: One year ago today I sat with my sister, mother, and a very sensitive funeral director, planning my father's services. Today, I am sitting beside the woodstove in our home in northern Vermont. The greatest heartbreak, the greatest joy. So much has happened in between. It is really something how the pendulum swings. ✨ May 2019 be all that you've ever hoped for. I am grateful for each of you, more than you know. 🙏🏻
Savoring. I hope you are, too. 🎄
There are aspects to our new life that are not ideal (Adam working in CT several days, me in VT full time), but a perk for sure is reuniting weekly. Time together is not taken for granted. 🎁
Making progress on my poncho while Adam does a crossword puzzle. Can't remember the last time I saw him do nothing. The weather is spitting ice and not great for being outside, so he's sitting still for a few minutes. It's really nice. Glad to still be in holiday mode.
