  • Hung out in a favorite tree today with my favorite little guy.
  • I'm sure gonna miss this view when the leaves are all gone! Forecast calls for snow tomorrow evening, on Halloween night. What the what?!
  • For today's #tbt, I'm sharing an image of the altar @shelterprotectsyou and @sheltercollective built on our property for their wedding here last month. Such a beautiful, memorable day that was, filling our little forested cove with happy juju for weeks. Love watching the scene shift as the foliage changes.
  • Felt a shift in the air today, this afternoon in particular. The veil is getting thin. You feeling it, too?
  • SO much love for @forvillagers and her heavenly homesteading/hearth-tending supply store in West Asheville. Stopped in today for a bag of organic chicken feed and to see what's new in the shop. I'll be teaching a

  • My favorite part of all of these photo shoots for my upcoming  picnic book has been eating the props! Enjoyed this pumpkin whoopie pie today on an impromptu picnic with @glennbenglish and Huxley on the #blueridgeparkway.

  • Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina at suuuuunset. ?
  • They won't fess up for certain, but I'm fairly sure the flock finds autumn to be their favorite season, too.
  • To celebrate all the photo shoots that we completed this week (three in 8 days!!!), we took it easy this morning, and whipped up this challah French toast, stacked with my homemade peach lavender butter, Foothills bacon, rosemary candied pecan pieces, and sorghum molasses blended with maple syrup.

    That pizza looks amazing. The tilapia green house is really interesting too. The gal I used to get raw milk from was trying out raising tilapia. Though her tank for them wasn’t nearly as snazzy. What a great weekend.

  • Ha! That is exactly what I thought when I saw the archery pics- “Katniss hair!!!”. I would love to hear more about the tilapia green house. I am very interested in this.

  • Oh goodness! Is that your backyard? If so, it’s gorgeous! I have been contemplating on landscaping and gardening our front and back yard for the longest time but the entire projects feel a little overwhelming. Can you recommend where I should start?

    • kristina-no, it’s not our backyard. the top few images are from the ashevillage institute, which is close to downtown asheville, while the ones following the archery lesson are from our the home of our friends andy and katherine, who live in west asheville. both locations have hand-built outdoor ovens, which was pretty sweet to view. we cooked pizzas in andy and katherine’s oven on saturday, after our archery lesson. SO tasty!

    Was also wondering about those ovens, would you know if there was a workshop in the oven construction?
    Thank you for any info, Chele
