our little house in the big woods


a dream come true. i am trying to recall how my mom put it in her holiday letter - something to the effect that this will be a place for us to connect with nature, each other, and ourselves. a place where we will {try our best to} live without plastic and television. where we will revel in the beauty of it all and breath deeply.

{more photos here.}

we are back to our little house in the big city. busy with laundry and preparing for a return to school and work tomorrow. grateful our drive home was without incident. (thanks for all your good wishes!)

breath deep!
