For better or worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health…

These are my lovely parents. They just celebrated thirty five years of togetherness living all of the above. They’ve journeyed through mountains and valleys and still they smile.

I am encouraged by the home they’ve built, both literally and figuratively, and I am deeply blessed to call them family.

And yes, they are wearing the original wedding attire.
With mom in a Jessica Mcclintock gunne sax vintage, and dad in traditional thrift store hippy garb.

Cannot be parted nor swept away
From one another once you are Agreed
That life is only life Forevermore
Together wing to wing and oar to oar.
-Robert Frost

Happy Anniversary!!

This is John and Nikki.
His sister set them up on a blind date five years ago.
Then they fell in love over Mexican food.

Today they share three dogs, two cats and an insatiable love for beards.
Now feel free to oohh and ahhh over their obvious admiration of each other.

Awwww….

We moved to the country and, obviously, started a garden.
Because, you know, when in Rome.
Plus, I’ve always wanted callused hands and dirty fingernails.

But really though, everyone could and should have a garden.
It’s amazing what you can grow in even the smallest of places, like on your front porch or windowsill.
And it’s so incredibly rewarding.

So go get a shovel and seeds and GROW SOMETHING!

Seriously, your unused muscles will thank you.
That is, after they scream at you and refuse to work properly for a few days.

We have descended into the garden and caught three hundred slugs.
How I love the mixture of the beautiful and the squalid in gardening. It makes it so lifelike.

These are my babies, I started them from teeeensie tiiiney seeds by the woodstove this winter. I feel like a mama bear watching these little guys grow up, and I can already taste our future together. The powdery white stuff all over is called diatomaceous earth, it’s a necessity for ninja organic gardening!

The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.
