A Love our home

Oh these Blue Ridge Mountains...hello old friend. We have missed you so. We have traveled long and far and our weary souls could feel ourselves getting nearer to your beauty and magical embrace.

In all of my life, I don't think that I have ever truly lived in such a place that could just make my heart sing the way these mountains can. We are so blessed to know this land, to smell their mountain breezes, to feel the warmth of the sun through the tree tops.

Your morning mists hold stories from long ago that we cherish and still tell to this day. The perfect place to hold a remembrance of the past while looking to the future, a remarkable balance in the circle of life.

Sometimes in life we have to go away in order to find ourselves, to understand ourselves. And I am thankful that the journey has led us  back to you.
It is so good to be home, and even though we have so much work to do to re-establish,  just stepping outside and being here...right here....I know that everything is as it should be.
We are blessed to know a love like this.

Power Shopping for Art

Our last day at the Artisan Market in Grants Pass was yesterday. The weather was great and attendance even better. Lots of people downtown with the combination of the Artisan Market, the Grower's Market, and Art Along the Rogue's Chalk Art festivities.
So many of our friends came by to see us before we leave and lots of hugging exchanged.Sales were up nicely yesterday.

Our morning started out with a visit from our friends Heidi and Don.
Don adopted my "Stargatherer" painting,

 but when I wrapped it and slid it into the shopping bag, he asked me if I had a bag that was a little more manly.

I reassured him that the bag would in no way take away from his manliness....

We were blessed with the many friendly faces that came to see us... the art card swap with Heidi, a cd from Key of Three,  a touching gift from Kim, seashells and goodies from Darla, and so many hugs and well wishes for us.. too many to list.
Thank you all for seeing us off and many many blessings to you everyone.
