Before dashing out the door for Newport, I stuffed these two skeins of sunshine in my bag, hoping I'd sort out what to do with them on the way down there. I didn't even have time to use my swift... Continue reading

If I had a bucket list, the Newport Folk Festival surely would have been on it. I've long wanted to attend, and for years have been listening to the live NPR broadcasts when the festival happens. That it worked out... Continue reading

This year marks the 56th Newport Folk Festival. Clearly, they've got this thing dialed. Just setting up - before the artists and before the festival attendees - had such a good energy and vibe. And of course, a most gorgeous... Continue reading

So, this is happening. Or rather, has been happening for a few weeks now. When we added a drake last year, Adelaide (and well, maybe all of us) were hoping some ducklings would appear this year. Stellaluna - everyone's favorite... Continue reading

Sadly, no bees this summer. None of them made it through last winter and I decided to take a season off. I'll have them again next year and hopefully they will thrive for many many years! ;) Amanda

I wish I had taken some before shots, but honestly I could hardly bear to look at it! I was using it as a "quick, open the door, shove it in, and close it again!" kind of storage space. Not... Continue reading

You already know I'm a firm believer in the importance of benches - anywhere and everywhere. Our yard and gardens now are practically littered with them (the best kind of littered). Well, I suppose it's no surprise that hammocks and... Continue reading

Hi Chris, Being unfamiliar with what you're referring to, I asked Hunter to respond. Her response is below.... "Dear writer and fellow mama, I'm very sorry to see that my sponsorship of Amanda's wonderful blog has caused you to suffer. I was very surprised about your comment. Can you point out the content of mine that caused you such concern? I understand your distress and unwillingness to support a sponsor that you perceive as against the needs of children. I do not advocate leaving children unattended or without their needs met - that is an awful thought to me! I am a strong advocate for mamas self-care, knowing that when we mamas are peaceful, grounded, and present, we are able to give our best to our children. I know from my own journey, and the paths of women I work with, that the tools of yoga and mindfulness can help mamas release stress and anxiety, so that we can offer our love joyfully. I invite you to talk to me further about your concerns. And I wish you peace and goodwill on your journey."
