Feed your babies where you are, even if it's on the beach. These seal mamas look just like sow mamas from back home- blissed out with their babies.
I left my favorite frosty isthmus this morning for sunny San Diego and there was not a new dress packed in my bag. Turns out my ragtag slapping together two patterns and then modifying THAT was a bit too experimental for my abbreviated timeline. Dress was a fail. But! I did finish an epic cabled cardigan sweater that the forecast says I'll appreciate as we delve into 5 days of farm conference. More on that later. #nfu2017#nfuwomensconference
The sweater that saved me in San Diego. Knit from the wool of my own flock, I finished knitting it days before leaving for #nfu2017 and #nfuwomen . Thought it was silly, to wear only from WI to airport in San Diego, but boy was I wrong. Have worn it in nicely these chilly days past in San Diego. #knittingispower That dress that I was hoping to eke out would have never made it out of the suitcase. #sweaterweather
The lovely wedding arbor that never was. Persistent storms moved the ceremony under cover so the magnificent flowing arbor was seen only by us Farmer Florists. Created in partnership with Erin at Hilltop Community Farm.
