house of dreams

  I would like to talk about our future plans, though I am not sure I should. I firmly believe that dreaming is just another form of doing; of manifesting. And I have never been one to keep things quiet.   We have no idea when we will be moving to our new home.   […]

a love letter

    A blanket of snow has begun to fall.   A good, sweet snow that comes quietly.   It is on days such as this, that I fall more deeply in love with this cabin. With all her faults and crooked joints, she holds us safely in her embrace. Scented with wood smoke and […]

back at it

I am back. What’s new, you ask? Well, let me see…. Our little cabin is for sale. We’re moving to a run down, but lovable farmhouse just a hop, skip and a jump away from my dad and step mom’s farm. More on that later, I promise. I made the leap and deleted 340+ friends […]

you were wild once

  Within my rib cage, there lives a bear. And a wolf. And a bird beating her wings.   Sometimes I find myself barely breathing; Aching to know what it is to run again; Lithe and wild through the night as the wolves do. Noiseless. through the trees.   To remember again what it felt […]

Poppy You’ve started to take it upon yourself to pick out your clothes for the day and proudly prancing downstairs to show us your choice of attire.  It is often on backwards, but the colours almost always coordinate. You are going through a rather new phase as you become more a girl than a baby. […]
