Just five beds remain for the Autumn Women's Retreat! I don't know if or when I'll host another, so do jump in this October. I'd love to spend the weekend making remedies with you! Details about the retreat follow. A... Continue reading

This week has been a bit too full for writing, but I thought it would be fun to share this again - quite possibly the most frequently visited post I have ever written. Dig in and make some huge bubbles... Continue reading

Stick with me for a moment while I explain our backwards celebration habits. On account of my spring birthday and Pete's June birthday, we celebrate Father's Day on Mother's Day and Mother's Day on Father's Day to keep from back-to-back... Continue reading

As most of you know, I create a seasonal subscription box packed with organic body care just four times a year. It's one of my favorite projects, as it's a huge creative outlet for me dreaming up a new collection... Continue reading

My ridiculously sweet neighbors jogged past my house this morning with their kids. And as I watched them lope by - a vision of health and togetherness - an uninvited thought popped into my head: "You're doing it wrong." (Said... Continue reading

I'd love to talk to you in person some time, Jody! It's funny that two parts of my story (bees and guineas) were linked to your crew. x

Interesting how such hard times can lead us to a better path. Be well, Rachel!

Thank you, Valerie. Five years unfolded so quickly that it felt a bit soon to make this switch, and yet we knew it was time.

Our lives are built on the premise that our current self knows what our future self most desires. We constantly set a course for tomorrow, based on the assumptions of our current interests, values, and dreams. There's no other way... Continue reading

You've been asking me for years: to create a booklist of my favorite reads on a variety of subjects. Books to inspire the leap into homeschooling or a first foray into herbalism; books to nurture a slow and mindful childhood... Continue reading

When my kids were small I put together a packing list for them so that they could pack without much assistance from me. It turned out to be a great way to build independence at an early age, and encourage... Continue reading

This morning when I woke, instead of having to coerce Charlie off of his bed and outside for a slow and cautious walk up and down the driveway, he stood up and wagged his tail (actual wagging!) when I got... Continue reading

Hello, Bonnie. What a beautiful story. Thank you for sharing! How heartbreaking it must have been to walk away leaving everything behind, and what a delight that you have rebuilt your magical collection. I wrote this post back in 2012, but just this spring I felt something pulling me into the very same second hand store again (it's over 4 hours from my home in an area I don't visit often) and I said out loud to myself as I turned my car off of the highway, "Maybe I'll find more Bucks County dishes!" Amazingly, I did. A stack of bowls, a couple more mugs, and enough plates that we can enjoy them everyday now without worry. Thanks again for sharing. Blessings! ~ Rachel

So hard, Kate. When things happen out of sequence they are that much more difficult.

Last year was the first time I thought to offer up summer camp to Sage. (I know. He was 13.) Parenting fail, perhaps, or maybe just a different path and a different reality. Regardless, I finally jumped on the bandwagon... Continue reading

When my kids were small and we were having a hard day, I remember my mom once telling me to "put them in water". And, of course, like so often when I listen to my mother it worked like a... Continue reading

When I was a child summer meant inner-tubes in the river, camping in the woods, and campfires beneath the stars. It meant chasing fireflies, picking wildflowers, and catching toads. Summer was endless sunny bike rides, tangled tree branch forts, and... Continue reading
