i have to admit i love it when my birthday lands on a market day. really. this particular september 26th i landed on the first delivery of our fall extension.   i tend to seek out well wishes more than anything on my birthday and i was pleasantly surprised by the hugs, the confections, and the love of my community on the day alone with my man. you see, my farm team tended the children and the homestead in our absence as my birthday gift so we had  a market day and date wrapped up into one.

i was welcomed back onto the farm and celebrated again on sunday with my loved ones and an eclipse themed cake. we stayed up later than usual into the night to watch the skies festivities.


a good year has passed and i am quite sure another lies ahead. thanks for all the birthday love y’all.
