Remembering Sundays and remembering you, remembering all the things we use to do. We’re spending the day commemorating you as a day hasn’t past that I have not thought about you. 💛🌾🍂
Put a lion in your heart and don’t be afraid to let it out every once in a while. Be nomadic and have the courage to forever keep moving and exploring every corner of the earth. 🌲🌾
Simpler living is not backward living, but forward living. Less time spent on material goods means more time spent with family, friends, nature and unlocking the real passions and values of your life” -Seeds of Simplicity .
So, there you go...go be simple and enjoy the weekend with the people, places and things that you value most. 🌾🙏🏼
This morning was the first frost of the season, which signals change and transition. I had the honor to harvest these beautiful sweet grapes out at Moonstone Farm a few days back during my first stop on a new journey I’ve ventured on. Nothing’s better than immersing yourself in the sustainable principles and practices of the farm during your stay. I can’t think of a better way to spend time outside of my everyday, which lately has been unpredictable, stressful and unfulfilling. Thank you Audrey and Richard for all that you do and all that you contribute to the land and your community. You give me hope, peace and inspiration. 👩🏻🌾🍇
These American natives are like beaming stars of the prairie in the fall. We’re blessed by the beauty of asters, goldenrod, clovers, milkweed and more that cover the land like a vintage carpet. .
There is an old Cherokee folklore story of an old woman who saw danger around two young girls. The woman took them in, sprinkled them with herbs and covered them with leaves. As the girls awoke in the morning, the two had turned into the first asters of the prairie. In honoring our indigenous people, all religions, all traditions, all origin stories—we continue to provide a large map of where we are. 🌾✌🏽🙏🏼💛
Today is the official start of living out a project I’ve set to carry out in pursuit of honoring those living life S.L.O.W., sustainably, locally, organically and whole. As I leave this space in Montevideo MN, so magical and rich in these values...I stop to take a photo on my phone of the road ahead and think, this is the kind of work that allows for observation, moments of contemplation, deep introspection and most of all a fostered connection with the human heart and it’s shared appreciation for the natural world. It’s an honor to be here, sharing a love for the land and love of the people who make a living on the land as well as a sense that we all have a role in renewing the fringes of the natural world. .
Stay tuned for an official launch date for this project, to include an ongoing online journal and gallery of my rural midwestern journey. 🌾👩🏻🌾🐄🐓🌲
Rain, Wedding for @k8jo88 ! Chris Stapleton with @shortersideoflife with a smooth glass of Tennessee whiskey, sweet strawberry wine and a farm stay in Montevideo with my best @ermlev . 🙌🏽 I’d say my hearts content and full.
A few of my favorite cozy ones. 🐑✨Bringing back warmth and wool for the season.
Life is full of beauty and opportunity if you notice it. If you smell the rain, feel the wind and chase the dream...life will be lived to its fullest potential. Hoping for sunshine, gold and rainbows. 🙏🏼🌾🌈☀️
Took a misty morning trip to the garden store to pick up more of these little white pumpkins to sprinkle extra autumn hygge in our home. The garden store during the fall is magical, whimsical and full of natural cozy comforts. 🍁🍂
It's ok to be different ya'll. We're suppose to be, we're suppose to be our own unique creation. After all, we get to choose. We get to choose and create how we want to exist in the world that is harmonious to what we feel inside. Surrounding myself with elements of the natural world give me love and compassion. Love and compassion that I absorb and look to share with others. .
Sending you all love on this gloomy, yet beautiful Monday. ☕️🍂
Sunday snuggles with my favorite ball of fur. 😽
Despite all the wide and varied differences that human beings around the world embody, we are in truth more alike than dissimilar. In the core of our being, we yearn to be connected to something real, something substantial, something to believe in - something larger than ourselves. We want to belong, to be part of something that will endure beyond our lives. ✌🏽

Work inspiration going into the weekend, a little mix of old and new, something borrowed and blue. 🍂📝
Every day I find myself one step closer to an enriched life that's simple, that's rooted in the natural world, that fosters community and supports local artisans and growers, and all the more so..reaches beyond my physical presence and deep into my spiritual being on this earth. 🌿
Reflections and an official guide generated from this journey will be coming soon. Stay tuned as I further venture into the creative world.
Dessert and coffee after dinner: a tradition with our families that we will embrace for generations on. These moments post a meal cultivate a continual appreciation for taking dinner as a moment of rest, nourishment and slow indulgence of the things that are often consumed without savoring the journey and experience of what that is. Tonight, I'm savoring it all, Creme Brûlée, coffee, and to be included..these leaves I gathered on my walk home this afternoon. ☕️🍁🍂
Sunday afternoon post nap feels. ✨What's lacking is a good breeze and a glass of iced tea.
These kinds of roads are going to lead me to a life of my dreams, I just know it. Each day I'm inspired by those living intentionally in the country, crafting goods with care and capturing inspiration from the rural landscape. 'Tis the season of change and transition. As you walk through this season of change, be here with gratitude in appreciation for the beauty that surrounds you. 🍂🍁
📷@poldersowm of Old World Kitchen does just that. Thanks for sharing your heirloom goods with others along with daily sentiments of the land that inspires the beauty in your work!
