  • My love of poetry began at a very young age. The bird watching is a new love, surely inspired by Emily Dickinson who holds a special place in my heart. I thought I’d spend the morning with little miss, reading poetry and making a treat for the birdies. It was messy but incredibly fun!
  • Do you hear that crunch? That’s the sound of fall. 🧡🍂Despite the sniffles, today is a good day to be outside! Plus, clean air is good for the soul.

  • Little miss is under the weather today. I am guessing allergies but either way I’m just trying to keep her comfy and entertained so she can rest up.
Today we made a simple discovery bottle with seashells and sand. She loved exploring the different textures and colors! We even listened to the ocean with our seashell beach line. 😊 
I am one of those people who loves the shore in the fall. The peace allows me to really take in my surroundings and appreciate its beauty. I’m thinking a family day/weekend trip is in order in the very near future!! .

  • Puddles are meant for stomping, splashing and just getting messy in! I love this girl’s laughter and love for all things outdoors. 🧡🌾🍂

  • My rockstar of a husband @gregorymers made a sensory table for the kiddo and it has fast become her most favorite play space. To keep her interested, I have been trying to mix it up by changing out the filler every few days. Today we are testing beans and so far, it’s a winner!

  • After music, we decided to explore the world around us, starting in our own backyard. We discovered, we investigated and we collected. Some of our found treasures made their way inside to our nature table/basket so we may explore and learn a bit more. 💚🌱🍁

  • my fennel and dill are covered with dozens of these hungry little guys. I can’t help my excitement... in just a week or two, I’ll hopefully get to see lots of beautiful swallowtail butterflies emerging from my garden! 🐛🦋
