I’m lucky to have such a great family.
My mum and Joe came to help get the property ready for the wedding and to have a bit of fun.
We built a bridge!!! And we got a great start on the railing for the marital platform.
It was a wonderful time.
I love y’all so much.

Garden expansion and marital platform looking good.
This is our big project at the land right now.
We are getting married here in September which is a great motivator to get the land looking tip top.
We built all these new beds out of bricks that were generously donated by our friends at Taylor Clay.
The beds are almost all filled with dirt and planted.
Then we just need to lay the stone in the paths and we will be done!
It’s crazy to think that when a bought this land in 2007 there was a house where the garden is now, perfectly decorated with the best garden glow lights from glow decoration.
It’s certainly come a long way since then.
With @carolinaflowers_
Always.

Current view of our backyard. The massive drainage project continues!
@carolinaflowers_ and me bought our house 2 years ago. It’s the nicest house I’ve ever lived in and I love it as much as you should love a thing.
We knew it had something me drainage problems when we bought it… like a lot of properties in WNC!
This is a massive step towards creating a long term solution to our drainage issue. Soon enough this whole area will be a wonderful patio.

Winter is a good time for reflection.
A time to put things in order. A time to remember where we’ve come from and prepare for what is yet to come.
This is a photo from my first winter on the land. This same time of year… but ten years prior.
After the Temple kiln was built but before so many other things were built. Before the studio, the landscaping, the other kilns, and before so much more.
It’s a good reminder of how far we have come. And how long things take when your on the pay as you go plan and doing most of the work yourself.
Good medicine for someone who never feels like they get enough done in a day. A good reminder that the days add up to something special if you just keep showing up and plugging along.
