on a personal note

I posted some resolutions on jan 2nd of this year... and I got to check one off the list on Friday - I earned the rank of black belt - It's been an amazing transformative process. The funny thing about getting to this place is I feel like now I'm at the beginning again the test for me showed me where my strengths and weaknesses are and gave me a window into what to work on going forward...  I had some amazing friends on the journey with me and - truly tapped into the power and energy that was bigger than just me during the test... I trained and got my body as ready as I could - but what got me through to the end of that day was bigger than any one person - I'm deeply grateful to those people who have been on this journey with me!

I love mondays!

Monday is the day Brian goes to the winery all day - I set that day aside to paint. I also do other little things for me on Mondays - like mowing the grass, checking on the bees doing a little work in the garden.. today the weather was as good as it get's I painted outside and I got to spend some time with the momma cows too which is always so calming.

the baby was moving so much today it was amazing to watch !! 

Miss Josephine is sooo pregnant she looks like she's about to pop... and she's super docile at this point in her pregnancy she just stands there for as long as I will scratch her... 


A swarm of bees moved into my third garden hive this evening it was so exciting to see! It was a really big swarm and they decided to make my last emply hive there new home!! super exciting... and no catching necessary - gotta love that thanks bees!! : )  

 and todays paintings


and levi being cute : )

50 founders so far ! and the first round of plans are in!!

We have 50 founders add there names to the guest list so far! Thank you all so much!!  Brian and I are totally blown away by the support and enthusiasm for the wines and the winery - barn raising! You are all family and we are so excited to share this project with you!

We got the initial plans today from New Energy Works! We are busy looking things over!  As I type we are sharing a bottle of rose and Brian is cutting out little pieces of cardboard and laying them out in the space to see how all his existing bins and barrels and equipment will all fit in the space and how it will all flow...

I'll be adding names over on the right side of the blog as things come in and folks give me the way they like to be listed...  Thank you all again - 150 people is the goal and after just 2 weeks we are at 50!! which is kind of mind blowing in and of it's self - thank you!!!
