Taproot at Squam

Happy Monday, friends! I have SO much to share with you (including photos from two epic hikes we took on the Blue Ridge Parkway on my birthday!), but today I’m catching my breath. Last week was SO very busy, what with turning in one book manuscript, reviewing the page proofs on another, dealing with the last remaining bits of illness in my sweet boy, and traveling to Charlotte, NC over the weekend to spend time with my brother, his new baby, and family visiting from out of town. I’m tired now just reading that recap. Holy cannoli.

In the meantime, before another moment passes, I want to share this video with you. Today, as I’m finalizing some freelance work, doing laundry, nibbling on pickles, smoked turkey slices, and cheddar cheese (my go-to lunch with Glenn and Huxley are away and I’m busy with work), I’ve also been looking into airline tickets to New Hampshire. In just over 5 weeks, my fellas and I will be heading north so that I can join the teaching crew and students at Taproot at Squam. I’m delighted beyond measure to be included in such a stellar teaching lineup. The accommodations and grounds look absolutely stunning, and I can’t wait to gather around that big lake and take in the best of not-quite-but-almost autumn in New England. Perhaps some of you can join us. If not, do please feel free to spread the word. This gathering promises to be a glorious one.  

Here’s hoping you have a week filled with health, happiness, and love!

    Funny, I will be in New Hampshire the weekend before you, touring Dartmouth with my son. I am hoping for slightly cooler weather than we have down here!
