Mine and Everett's annual road trip is supposed to start tomorrow and instead we have wretched colds. 😕 Hopefully we don't have to postpone more than a day or two. . This year we're stopping in central Arkansas for a few days to visit with family before we head on to my parents' farm in South Carolina. My husband is going to meet us out there for a bit and we're going to spend some time in North Carolina. . Last year, an RV-living family joined in with our @freeforestschool group as they passed through. I thought that was a brilliant way to get some kid play time in while also seeing the natural sights. We've joined the Central Arkansas group and the Southern Blue Ridge, so if you're in those maybe we'll see you 😊. . We won't have much exploring time in AR as we're mainly going to spend time with Everett's great-grandmother. I would LOVE some kid-friendly recommendations for Ashville, NC, though! Not the typical zoo/museums list. Anything we MUST see or go do? (IDK if we're going to attempt the Biltmore with a 4 year old...) .

Springtime things 🧚♂️💐🌈🐛❤ . (Wooden eggs from #targetdollarspot $3/half dozen.)
We rehomed our hens about a month ago. Never thought I'd miss a chicken. Such spunky little things! 🐓 . (We never got an HOA letter or anything, but I didn't realize how LOUD they are when they lay an egg. It was giving me massive anxiety. They went to a sweet family with a much bigger yard in a chicken friendly neighborhood.) . #thesugargarden
Wild things, you make my heart sing. ❤
Low key obsessed with the hyperlapse on my new phone. Also this camera!! 🤩 Hungry monarch caterpillars 🐛❤
Her Time She has been feeling it for awhile now--- that sense of awakening. There is a gentle rage simmering inside her, and it is getting stronger by the day. She will hold it close to her--- she will nurture it and let it grow. She won't let anyone take it away from her. It is her rocket fuel and, finally, she is going places. She can feel it down to her very core--- this is her time. She will not only climb mountains--- she will move them too. -Lang Leav I bought this gorgeous deck for a card reading class my lovely friend @jennfezio hosted last night. Just playing with the deck at home, the same card was standing out to me over and over. Last night at the class I was shuffling and the woman next to me said she kept seeing one card over and over. It was the same card I had been seeing! This morning, I was trying to have a quiet moment to myself in the garden and, of course, Everett wanted to participate. I let him pull a card and can you believe that it was that same card again... 🤣🤷♀️ Universe, I hear you. ❤
We believe that each and every person is important. We believe that all people should be treated fairly and kindly. We believe that we should accept one another and keep on learning together. We believe that each person must be free to search for what is true and right in life. We believe that all persons should have a vote about the things that concern them. We believe in working for a peaceful, fair, and free world. We believe in caring for our planet Earth, the home we share with all living things. Photo from July when we were sun kissed and Everett still had his Winnie the Pooh baby belly. 😙😙 Never got around to sharing this one for some reason.*
Playdoh and hot chocolate. It's a good life. He's had a developmental leap recently, and so much learning is happening in our house right now. He's hungry to learn. He also needs a LOT of calm, easy play to balance that. Seems meditative.
