We're back from our road trip. Mostly.
We had the pleasure of a visitor at our house late this week so our travels are not quite over. We're exploring nearer our house, but still exploring.
We spent some time in the southern part of MN exploring caves, gathering fossils, and watching a doozy of a thunderstorm.
I spent some time in the prairie breathing it in and soaking up the beautiful marks ma nature has made, and hope to turn that inspiration into stitches. Maybe you can see some when you look through these photos.
The kids did some nature study, and we all learned a lot.
These happy days are salve for my soul and I acknowledge that many among us are not in a place of happiness or peace. Photos of flowers don't solve the world's problems by any stretch of the imagination, but there is something to be said for invoking happiness, even in small amounts, even in one person.
Right now, I am happy.
For those that ordered stones, I will packing them up and sending them early next week. I want to get a photo of them all together before I mail them off. I hope they bring with them a little of that prairie happiness.
