Happy Earth Day!

“If we surrendered to earth's intelligence we could rise up rooted, like trees. ”
--Rainer Maria Rilke

Dear friends,
   It has been a while. We are all alive and well, basking in the glorious spring-time sun, and slowly finding our footing in our new home that is so perfectly wonderful and cozy. I won't lie and say that unpacking has been easy....moving in and organizing is no simple task, but each day we do a little more.

We may not have all of our pictures hung on the walls, but the bird feeder is hung in the back yard and we have been enjoying our afternoons outside, tucked among the tall trees, watching as our feathered friends tweet and squeak and fly about. We're taking things slow. Enjoying our home. Enjoying each other. Enjoying life and this BEAUTIFUL spot of the Earth that we are blessed to live upon. 

Thank you all for the sweet notes and messages you've sent during my little break from blogging. I've missed you all, and I have a wealth of photos that I just can't wait to post. So today, here's to Earth, and a fresh start....in more ways than one.
