    i’d love to hear more about your home-making – just simple day to day sweetness with your littles, home, and food.

    I am very interested in how your “spending strike” is going and continues to go throughout the month — my own life dictates much the same frugality, though it expresses itself very differently in the heart of downtown Toronto as opposed to on a homestead.

    I also have enjoyed your very honest voice when mothering and the creative self are concerned — again, issues I find close to my heart!

      I plan on doing a tiny update though can’t share too much in the way of our “elving” so as not to ruin the surprise 😉

    Hi Erin. Would you like to comment on living close by, yet far enough away from The City. This is an arrangement I’m in these days. Loving the small town, loving the proximity to The City, but wondering if it will stay this way for long. Will I have to move again or be stuck feeling like I’m living in “suburbia”?

      Interesting idea…Thank you for this.

    I would love to have post on your journy into homeschooling. It is something I often consider doing with my boys but sometimes feel overwhelmed as to where to start.

    • Posted December 11, 2011 at 9:10 pm by erin | Permalink

      I plan on sharing the good and the challenging parts of it here as we are all just learning…or un-learning 😉

    You really have a beautiful way with words Erin! I would love to know more about your creative endeavors. What you do every day/week to stay creative. Do you journal, art journal, paint, sew, knit, etc. I would love to hear more about simple living as well:)

    hmm…. since I do love all that you post (and I’m not just sucking up)… I guess I’d have to specify that I love just hearing you heart write what it’s feeling – the poetic.beauty-full.thoughts you weave together with your gorgeous photos…
    yah, that’s it.

    I am so enjoying watching you blossom and emerge!
    I love reading about your days of motherhood. It helps remind me that I am not alone.
    I posted you on facebook!

    Your honesty about Motherhood and how hard it can often be have always been some of my favourite posts. I would also love to hear more about your daily rhythm and how you keep the kids entertained and stimulated. Please also share some words on how you balance Self and Motherhood. Congrats on the new site Erin, it truly feels like a warm and special space.

      Glad to hear that…sometimes I wonder if I am being too real or vulnerable, but am always amazed by the response.
      I will try to keep a happy balance.
      Thanks

    I would love to hear more about homesteading and homeschooling. We’re starting our journey on both fronts and love to gather more ideas and experiences.

    Love your blog!

      Great!
      Hopefully we can learn the path together.

    I am excited about your new site! I have enjoyed Apples with Honey. I am really looking forward to reading more about your experiences of living an intentionally simple life. My family and I aspire to do the same, and I find wonderful inspiration – and ideas – in those who are making similar choices. Thanks!

    I love your writing and like your recipes, reading about your creative ideas, living simply, and about your kids.

    I enjoy your posts about your homestead, and how you live in your old house. I have a case of log cabin envy :)

    Loving your blog, especially for Canadian content.

    • Posted December 12, 2011 at 12:07 pm by erin | Permalink

      Thanks so much!
      I agree there is not nearly enough Canadian stuff on the web these days :)

    I love your homemade things. Awhile back, you made beautiful simple bracelets, maybe more on your jewelry making!

    • Posted December 12, 2011 at 1:57 pm by erin | Permalink

      Oh yes, the wish bracelets! Good idea.

    I adore your photography. I also appreciate your honesty about life and being a mother. So many of us can relate. So… a topic. I would like to hear about how you manage to do the things you love while being a mother. Happy Holidays!

    • Posted December 12, 2011 at 3:18 pm by Brianna | Permalink

      also…is that a brown sugar scrub pictured above? I was pondering making this for a holiday gift. Would you be willing to share your recipe if it is? I found some online, but would love to hear yours.

      • Posted December 12, 2011 at 4:39 pm by erin | Permalink

        I will be sharing the recipe and resources this week. It is super easy and feels wonderful!

    Hi Erin
    Just discovered your site from a link that Krystle Pedro posted on FB for your homemade deodorant. I would love to see more homemade natural “beauty” aids such as moisturizer etc. I also love discovering new recipes, especially when they are photographed as beautifully as you do!
    I homeschooled my two girls for 6 of their school years. They are now 25 and 23 and look back very fondly on their homeschooled time…

    • Posted December 12, 2011 at 7:30 pm by erin | Permalink

      Great! Thanks so much for stopping by!
      I plan on sharing good recipes as I find them and will be sharing the sugar body scrub recipe this week.
      Always love to hear great homeschooling thoughts and experiences.
      Thank you

    I only recently came across your lovely site so I’m interested in hearing about anything and everything. Thanks!

      Glad you’re here! Thanks so much

    I’d love to hear more about your adventures in nature with the little ones, both the lovely parts and the challenges… i.e. are they scared of bugs, or get tired easily, or think mud is yucky… and if you’ve found ways around any of it.

  23. Posted December 14, 2011 at 12:25 pm by Heather | Permalink

    I really enjoy reading about your trying to balance and negotiate being creative & tasks of motherhood. Although a struggle, the words are reassuring. One of my favourite posts of yours about motherhood had a picture with your daughter reading in a chair at the top–and acknowledged some days just being done, just tired.
    Have shared your great blog https://www.facebook.com/microInfluential

      Thanks so much. I think I have an idea of the blog post you’re talking about…
      Today is one of those days I think 😉

    Oh and would also love to know more about the nuts and bolts of living in your cabin in the woods as I would love to do that some day but have only ever lived in the city… interested in the practical aspects, like heating, keeping out bugs, etc…

  25. Posted December 16, 2011 at 3:06 pm by Ana | Permalink

    Oh oh and what kinds of birds come to visit you in your little corner of Ontario!
