It's been three months since my last blog post. We were in the final days of winter then and now Spring has almost come to an end. Oh how time flies! I'd use the excuse of being busy, but I haven't been busy at all. The past few months have been rather restorative in r...

Spring is in the air and I couldn't be happier for the shift in seasons. Lately I've been spending lots of time outdoors in the garden prepping for the growing season ahead. But since my last post I've also been on a fabulous adventure! I spent the entire month of July...

I have always wanted to sew my own quilt. Ever since I can remember I have dreamed of having the patience to be able to sit and piece together a beautiful homemade blanket that could cloak me through decades of winters. Two days ago I decided that now, at 42, I have th...

This morning, on a whim (because that's how I roll), I decided to detach myself from social media for the rest of May. I can't say exactly why I felt the urge to say goodbye today, suffice to say that when I looked up from my morning phone session 3 hours had passed si...

April, thus far, has been a wholly whimsical month in my neck of the woods. Rainy days have dominated and many mornings I have woken to the hills covered in mist and fog, their bumpy silhouettes rising like lavender-grey monoliths from the wet earth. In weather like th...
