We’re home. After three weeks of travel via planes, cars, subways, trains, and swan boats. Home after visiting family, old friends, and new friends. Home after swimming in the Atlantic Ocean, watching a thunderstorm roll in, sleeping on the Amtrak, witnessing a marriage ceremony. Home to a garden that is about to burst, piles of “things to do” and the most gorgeous weather imaginable.
No trip to Boston is complete without a ride on the Swan Boats in the Public Garden!
Ev and Ella with Quack, Pack, Ouack, and Mack.
Four generations of women in my family. Grandma Barbara, Ella, my Nonni Antonetta, and me. This photo was taken on Nonni’s 92nd birthday!
Northeast Missouri has the most incredible skies and breezes that dry cloth diapers in mere hours!
Ella and Bella, a 25 year old Percheron, and the work horse of our dear friends in MO.
And this, my friends, is the site of our future shop/temporary home on our very own piece of land in Northeast Missouri. Yes, we will soon be leaving our beloved home here in Oregon for new adventures in the Midwest. I look forward to sharing these adventures with you in the very near future.
Wishing you a beautiful day!
Teri, I loved seeing the pictures of your Mom and Nonni–I remember visiting them almost 20 years ago in MA! Thanks for the photos, it is great to keep up with your adventures, even if it is only virtually these days! xo
Look like a delightful trip! The picture of your four generations is beautiful and very special.
And your land … the pictures of it make me want to travel and go on adventures. lol Best of luck with the move and your new property.
Thank you! It is very special to me that I still have a grandmother alive!! She is a feisty one!
The land is very lovely, and we are very blessed to be able to create a new homestead. Thanks for sharing the journey!
Love the picture of the 4 generations of strong beautiful women!
It is pretty awesome that we can still get together and take this photo!
