I am homeschooling my three children for the first time this fall and Oak Meadow is my ideal curriculum!

I probably should not have read this at work because I am fighting back tears in front of my coworkers. ;) I often struggle to provide my children with every opportunity and was recently feeling guilty for not allowing my son to participate in a travel lacrosse league this summer. (He is only 9 years old!) I loved "...we simply can't be all things..." I know after the initial disappointment my son has enjoyed the opportunity to go on meandering nature walks with me in the evenings. I know I have appreciated spending time in my kitchen making a nourishing family meal instead of grabbing something fast on the way to another practice. Thank you for the reminder that I just didn't say no, I said yes to another summer of being a child.

Thanks Rachel! I'm much better. Happy New Year to you!
Thank you for this timely post! I have been fighting a nasty cold for a week now. (Your essential oil blend from the winter treasure box has been my best friend!) I have the ingredients for a hot toddy and for elderberry syrup so I might make those today. I am so grateful for the bone broth in my freezer as well. :) Cheers to health!
I adore this post! I recently started woking part-time for the first time in the almost nine years since my oldest was born. Although I am lucky that I am able to work from home all but one day a week, I am finding that a new routine is going to be imperative to my success. (I tend to rarely stick to a schedule and then wonder where my day went. Ahem.) I am also an introvert and love homemaking so I found your post so helpful. Thanks for sharing!

I can relate to this, in my own small way. Every June I want to pick strawberries and can jam...but oh, it is a lot of work and it often corresponds with a very busy time with end-of-the-school-year activities. I was bone-tired this year and I was not very happy when I accidentally let the hot jam boil over and make a mess of my stove but seeing all those pretty jars in my pantry afterwards is the such a great feeling. It always ends up being worth the effort.

That poison ivy looks so awful. I am so glad you are starting to heal a bit. Take care of yourself mama!

Yum! I made garlic scape pesto served over pasta for our Father's Day dinner but made it with half basil, half garlic scapes. It was delicious but I can't wait to try your recipe. Do you have a favorite pizza dough recipe? Your pizza looks divine!

I adore your garden! Did you make the wooden gate? We are hoping to buy our own land in the next year or two and I am taking notes. :)

I am so excited to try the new gifts! I bought your holiday collection for my friends, family and teachers last year and they were a huge hit. I want to somehow work out my budget to include some for me this year. ;)
I could smell the wood and leaves when I looked at your last picture. It brought a smile to my face. ~Jennie

I am so glad I took the time to read your blog this morning...what a beautiful way to start the day.

Yes, yes, yes! I definitely agree. My oldest is not quite eight years old so I have many years to go before the teen years but with three children, I cringe every time someone tells me it is the "terrible twos" or something like that. It feels disrespectful to talk like that about another person. Thank you for the reminder to find the joy even if some moments are difficult.
