It's the season of CSAs and farmers markets and fresh everything wonderful. I started a new job with Churchview Farm here in Pittsburgh and I love every minute I spend there. It's not just that the women who own it are awesome and driven and hard-working; it's not just that there are chickens roaming and dust-bathing and crowing and scratching everywhere; it's not just that bees are flying in and out of their hives - it's all of things rolled into perfect hours under the sun. When I'm not there I find myself daydreaming about our own farm sometime in the future. There's something special about having your surroundings sustain you in ways physical and emotional. I'm thankful for the things that are shifting in my life and in my heart. I'm thankful for my family who I share these days with. Grow some vegetables. And eat them. Enjoy your summer.
Just in time for Spring everything is new around here now. The biggest of the big doings is that my wonderful husband took the leap into working and living the way he (WE) wants to. Yesterday was his first official day as the Big Boss Man at Yellow Couch Studio. This means so much to us - more time together and more time as a family, flexibility with our time and our days, space and time to explore new ideas and projects. It's all so wonderful. I am so proud of him and excited to see what our future brings. I'll have a couple of full days a week to work myself which will be the first time since 2006 that I've been able to dedicate big, fat blocks of time to my pursuits. (Watch out, pursuits!) I'm starting my new work life by putting a bunch of new work up in my Etsy Shop. ONWARD.
