"pick me"

Even as I begin to see the finish line in a long career in Early Care & 
Education, I will always identify first & foremost as a nursery school
teacher.  As a teacher, my year was informed by the celebrations & 
holidays & seasons of the children that I spent my days with.  I still
decorate my house as if it were a giant living bulletin board from my
teaching days.  So this year, with St. Patrick's Day, Spring & Easter all
simultaneously saying, "pick me"...I blended green & bunnies & tucked
in eggs.  I could never pick a favorite.

sweet day

Have I told you just how much I adore ❤️ Day?  Truly. I. Do.

There is just something magical about a day we set aside to
celebrate love, friendship & kindness.  It is the sweetest day!

And at Meadowview Farm, no detail is left undone...enjoy!

I live in this sweet world of kittens & baby goats & vintage charm.
It truly is my beloved haven.  When the world talks back too much,
I know I am blessed to have a safe place to retreat to.  A place where
kittens follow you and goats call to you across the farm yard. A place
where I can try to make sense of things.  A place where kindness
always wins & compassion is the law.  ❤️

xxoo ๐Ÿ’Œ

I really adore everything about Valentine's Day.  As a kid, some
of my fondest school memories centered around giving & getting
little cards (I still even have my childhood Valentines!).  As a
teacher, I loved the focus of this day on kindness.

This past week, I was home on an unexpected snow day...
so spent the morning unpacking my sweet Valentine's Day

In a place of honor, is this bowl of house numbers...from my 
childhood home: 5410 Healy Lane.  When my sisters & I 
closed the door one last time over 20 years ago, I took these 
with me.  I can see my mom's brush strokes.  xxoo๐Ÿ’Œ

sometimes 5:00 a.m. is the best time

It is dark outside at the farm...the kind of night that feels like a blanket.
I am awake early, pretending my instant coffee is the real deal in my 
mug from the first Starbucks in Seattle.  The house is quiet, just the
ticking of the mantle clock.  As usual, my Lucy cat is at my side.  This 
quiet moment calls for reflection.  I will be anxious to say farewell to 
2017 in just a few days, hoping that bringing out a new calendar will truly
turn the page.  But, I suspect that it will not be quite so easy.  There will
be more 5 a.m. mornings, more reflection.  That will be my word & my
work in this new year.

our sweet woods

Today we cut boughs from our sweet woods in Winter, Wisconsin.
We truly must be caretakers of a million trees on our property.
Today they were dressed in snow!  ❄️❄️❄️❄️๐Ÿ ❄️❄️❄️❄️
