The turn toward Autumn has me feeling the inward pull to reflect and give thanks for all that has come to pass this summer and since I began envisioning what we would accomplish this year at Imbolc (Feb. 2), the time to plant seeds of intention.
It has truly been a season of abundance — quite a bit of it unexpected — but we are so thankful for all that we have been able to accomplish.
I haven’t blogged about our life/farm in quite some time, but with all the changes and upcoming projects I think this is a nice time to share what we’re up to and the new dreams we have taking shape.
The Fall Equinox occurred on Monday and we’ve been finding ways to celebrate this change in the season throughout the week.
Although Baby LF isn’t quite old enough to really engage in crafts too deeply, I don’t think it’s ever too early to begin new traditions (plus, I’d do these things even if I were just on my own!). We tried out two new activities that were inspired by a really wonderful book about celebrating the Earth’s seasons: Celebrating the Great Mother.
The first activity was baking a delicious apple spice bread. Mmm…fall in a loaf.

I think we’re finally getting close to having a rhythm again. We are settling in to this as our home.
As everything around us blossoms and comes into fullness, so do we.
