Its The Most Wonderful Time of the Year


And by that I mean Autumn, officially, and in feel... plus now, October! 💙

You all know how much I love this time of year, for its food, its weather, its colors, and its reminder to slow down. So much of the beauty in this time of year comes from letting go! And that's been my big challenge. Letting go of control, letting go of expectations, finding that balance between all I'm growing and the needs of my family.

Things are growing! Two new studios, two new doula clients, a handful of one-off classes! I'm keeping plenty busy, but feeling more aligned at home: still meal planning, and chipping away at organizing and cleaning around the house. I taught a class in a park recently, and it was so beautiful!




We ushered in the new season officially on Mabon itself, with our traditional feast, but have been celebrating in little ways ever since.


I made my hair a celebration...


We took part in a Girl Scout day at the local Botanic Garden.




We keep enjoying our weekly dinners with our "pod", and watching Gwen with Penny is just such a joy.

Gwen and I took a drive into the mountains recently, to catch the foliage, and it was an absolutely gorgeous.





We stopped for a picnic, which is one of Gwen's favorite things, and introduced Gwen to the beauty that is hot broth on a cold day.


Excursions like that one make me so grateful for this time of year and this place that we live. We are so damn lucky.



We have more fun planned already: another picnic, with some pumpkin picking, more dinners with our "pod", and fingers crossed, another quick camping trip.

What's your favorite thing to do this time of year?
