Saturday Morning Hike

:: Saturday Morning Hike ::

The new year has brought new traditions to our family. We are creatures of habit so starting something new can sometimes be hard but James and I have decided to actively take care our family  out into the woods.  We are fortunate enough to live near a state park with some easy level trails to walk and explore nature. The girls love it and we can spend some time outside enjoying the natural world. After our hikes, I feel rejuvenated and refreshed. The natural world and all it has to offer is the purest form of medicine for mind and body. We are looking forward to many more natural Saturdays.

This Moment

:: This Moment :: 

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week*. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.
If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.

Yarn Along

:: Yarn Along ::

Joining Ginny of Small Things

Even though we have been very busy with the holidays I have been able to do a lot of knitting. 14 hour car rides make plenty of time for knitting and finishing all kinds of projects. I finished my seed stitch cowl just in time for cold weather at my parents. I made another dishcloth for the kitchen. And...I finished my first sweater for my oldest gal! I love it and she does too! I added some willow branch buttons for a little flare. I also made a lot of progress on my youngest gal's sweater. With everything finishing up it is time to start some new projects and start knitting hexipuffs for my beekeeper quilt. I started reading Barbara Kingsolver's newest book, Flight Behavior. So far, so good! I started reading her work in high school and love her writings. I hope everyone had wonderful holidays! 

Happy Knitting!
