This door decoration is about so much more to me than some entryway, seasonal flair. This particular decoration came about after a long conversation with Daphne, then a list, then some illustrations of all the things we are thankful for. There is so much to be thankful for! This is something I need to keep… Continue reading Thankful Heart
Favorite graveyards? Yes, I have a couple. I think cemeteries are peaceful, beautiful places. This Halloween time has felt reflective for me.

This morning… Continue reading Summer Mornings with Toads ~a way of being~

While camping this past weekend we were witness to a view- something worth appreciating… savoring. I couldn’t stop myself from documenting this glorious sunset. The Somewhere In-Between I couldn’t believe the colors, the gentleness of the air as it gradually got colder and colder. It did not become windy, allowing our campfire to thrive… Continue reading A Peaceful Sunset And A Morning Meander
