The wreath I made for autumn. I made a traditional wreath for the front door, but had more fun with this one. Nothing says Halloween season like red brocade ribbon and sugar skulls.
Day 9: Best Day of 2016
My best day wasn’t a day of celebration or turning point of any kind. It was random September day, the first day of classes for of my daughter’s sophomore year. She was all moved in to the dorms, supplies secured, and I was tucked away in a Bed and Breakfast 10 miles from her campus. I stay in town for a week after dropping her off to write and go for long drives and walks in the Berkshires, shop for summer produce at the locals farms, and pay visits to friends we made our first summer in New England. Also, I am close enough to help with anything my daughter may need as she adjusts to school for the year. This particular day, I picked her up from campus and we went to our favorite orchard to stock up on apples, pears, cheese, spring and summer wildflower honey. Then we sat in the gazebo drinking cider slush drinks overlooking the pear trees at sunset. It was so peaceful and quite perfect in an accidental kind of way.
