I’ve been a little absent from the blog these days because I’ve been hanging out with this guy, Parker Grey, or Park as we call him, who was born January 9th. His name is from my Dad’s side of the family – Park’s Great Grandmother’s maiden name to be exact. I could write for days about his nursery and how we chose to fill it, my journey into motherhood, and now, what it feels like to be this amazing guy’s mom… but alas, the little man is calling for me. So for now, I’ll leave you with these photos from our first few weeks together and hopefully they’ll begin to tell the story for me. We are simply so blessed and proud to be his parents.

 

manyfold farm: lambing & cheesemaking

At the beginning of the year I had the opportunity to spend some time with Ross and Rebecca of ManyFold Farm documenting their cheese-making process — a true combination of pure science and heartfelt craft. Because it was the start of the year it also meant it was lambing season, and I was fortunate enough to witness a day old lamb being expertly guarded by their sheepdog (who absolutely loves his job). There is so much effort that goes into making one small round of cheese — I was amazed by all the calculated steps — but there is also so much art (for example, every single piece is salted by hand). And truly there is nothing more beautiful than knowing where your food comes from, how it is made, and the choices as to why it was made that way.

CAMP Summer Supper

A few images from our incredibly styled CAMP Summer Supper held a few weeks ago at Sun in My Belly.

I am always impressed with how Amy and Ginny can create seemingly effortless vignettes – so thoughtfully and delicately styled. Then to pair it with exquisite lettering, details and branding by Erica, the work is perfectly on brand. If you haven’t heard of CAMP, check it out now – I am thrilled to be part of this creative effort of stylists, artists, photographers, designers, and makers. I actually have developed a Summer Styling Workshop with Ginny that is just three weeks away, held right here at Serenbe; there’s still room to sign up, and I’ll post more on that this week… stay tuned!

My husband and I had the incredible opportunity just a few weeks back to travel to Ireland – and chose to explore the County Kerry Region, including traversing the entire Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula and the Killarnery National Park. I have never witnessed the beauty of such unique landscape, and honestly, am having a hard time describing the intensity of the green color that surrounded us. It was somehow glowing; the hills and mountains were simply effervescent. Most of our days were spent attempting to outrun the rain, its clouds and the significant dropping temperatures… but when the skies behaved, it was pure magic. Our favorite day was spent biking through the National Park, stopping along the way to explore castles and ruins, visit with the lambs and cattle, stand amongst 30 foot rhododendron shrubs and watch boaters slowly come back to shore.
