Explore Kentucky: Berea

Many of you may know we moved to Kentucky. It has been a bit of a rough transition. We moved twice last year: two very big moves. Alaska- Georgia, Georgia- Kentucky. I found such deep connection in both of those places, it has been difficult to settle in here. I decided a few weekends back […]

Saffy

Saffy looks up at me, tilts her head, and fluffs her ears forward. She sits and waits for me to pet her head, scratch her belly, speak calmly and lovingly to her. Her tail wiggles her entire backside, wiggle-waggle, back and forth. She finally stands up and licks my hand, or chin, or ear. She […]

Thanksgiving table game! Forehead detective.

This game can be played many ways, but ultimately the goal remains […]

travel diary: Atlanta Braves

September, 2018 Dear diary, Today we went to see the Atlanta Braves play. It’s funny, my strongest and most powerful memory of baseball comes from my Grandmom. She was a huge Phillies fan, in fact I  distinctly remember her sitting in her kitchen acutely listening to the game on the radio. When that game was […]

Dear Fall, I would like to express my powerful desire for your presence in the state of Georgia. We have experienced our share of your friend Summer, but she’s tired and would like to rest. Would it be too much trouble to stop in for a bit? I would like to pull out my box […]

Our Record Collection: Slow down and listen.

I have been collecting records since I was a kid. We had a player in our home and frequently listened to LPs (fairytale read alouds, big-band classics, and symphony performances.) I love going to thrift stores, garage sales, estate sales, and online to find old and new music to spend the evenings absorbing. Music has […]
