It’s September and it already feels like fall in Vermont. Full on sweater weather and it makes me think the leaves might start to change even earlier than usual up here. We made it through Marin’s first week of daycare. She has been a trooper and I’m so proud of her. No plans for the long weekend, it will probably be crazy busy in town so we’ll stick close to home and go for lots of walks and adventures. I’m taking an hour this morning to check out the Farmhouse Pottery tent sale and I’m so excited. Hoping to snag a few pieces I’ve had my eye on. Wishing all of you a great weekend.
On a separate note, it has been a heavy news week. Rest is a form of self care. Joy is a form of self care. We can simultaneously have empathy for those who are suffering and feel anger for the things that are happening, while also needing to protect our mental health and well being. It’s a difficult balance but one that we must work hard to find. Take care of yourselves.
