{Free Screensaver} On Communities…

September Screensaver

Jessika shared this quote with us during an #OMHG chat a couple weeks ago and I knew it would be perfect for this month’s screensaver:

Snowflakes, leaves, humans, plants, raindrops, stars, molecules, microscopic entities all come in communities. The singular cannot in reality exist. ~Paula Gunn Allen

A Postcard From Dorset, Vermont

Dancing

 

This photo of my parents sums up a wonderful weekend we had recently in Dorset, Vermont.  Tucked into a grove of pine trees, my cousin and his lovely bride were married in an outdoor chapel they built with their friends. The night culminated in hours of dancing under a gorgeous tent covered with sparkling lights. The weekend was filled with bonfires and s’mores, laughter, new babies, old friends, chilly swims, and starry nights. It was the first time in years my immediate family was altogether in one place, and looking over them, I often felt like my heart would burst.

Expecting our first baby in a few months, I’ve been reflecting on “family” this summer.– What does it mean? Who is in our’s? How to create one…

{Free Screensaver} The Magic of Summer

Did you go to summer camp as a kid? I went to sleep-away camp for a few weeks each summer for several years. And while I was there I always felt some sparkle in the air. And now thinking back –the bonfires, s’mores, singing, the big skies, the water, the friends– those were magic times.

This quote from I’m not sure who* seems perfect for our summer Camp OMHG months:

“When we speak of magic, we should speak of those moments that were the purest. When the stars were bright, and when the laughter was loud. Those are the most magical moments of life.” ~Unknown
