Autumn to winter, winter into spring,
Spring into summer, summer into fall,
So rolls the changing year, and so we change;
Motion so swift, we know not that we move.
~Dinah Maria Mulock
We say it every summer, where did the time go?! The long and lazy days we looked so forward to have been filled and we’re looking to autumn as we prepare to once again pick up with school schedules and routines. This summer has passed faster than most with days filled not only with gardening, harvesting and preserving the garden bounty but also the building of a new business, The Soil Sisters.
Looking back, it’s been a fun whirlwind of fast-paced and creative activity! We have made wonderful new friends as well as sweet memories, but it is time for me to say goodbye. The needs of a young business are exhaustive at times as are the needs of a large family. This sumer made more difficult than others as our family dealt with the unforeseen legalities surrounding the death of my brother. As we now near summer’s end I realize this is where I am needed most as we look ahead to all of the adventures that await our family throughout a new school year and the celebrations we look forward to at the end… three graduations and a wedding!
I am thankful for every minute of the adventure I had with The Soil Sisters and I thank all of you that have embraced it. I’ll be cheering and watching as it grows… and enjoying a lot of family time as I do! As for me… I’ll be here as always (and contributing to Beautiful Wildlife Garden) writing about what I love… the joy of growing! It’s the best of both worlds. Happy gardening!
