Life is Full
Wow! It is not often, my friends, that you will hear me say I am busy, but this past week I was busy. Summer camp started on Tuesday, and runs Tuesday's and Thursday's for the month of July. Each day I have a small group of kiddos here, we walk in the woods, record nature findings in our nature journals, craft, play, read, and play some more. It has been so much fun this week, and I am excited for the weeks left to come.
On Saturday, I hosted my fourth swap party, a small one this time, with a few close friends. Beautiful gifts were made and exchanged, a delicious lunch enjoyed, and wonderful conversations and stories shared. It was a delightful afternoon, one that reminded me of just how blessed I am to have the most incredible tribe of women around me.
Sunday morning found me in the kitchen, with a group of ladies, for my Putting Food By workshop. We made jam, canned dilly beans and dehydrated kale. As we worked we chatted, drank tea, shared stories and laughed. There is something pretty incredible about coming together with other women in the kitchen to put the harvest by. It connects us to each other, but also connects us to the past, to the tribes of women before us, and that feels absolutely amazing.
Life is full right now, and it is busy, but in a good way, a way that makes my heart happy, fills me up, and reminds of just how much I have to be grateful for.
