You know, it’s funny – sometimes life gets so busy and we just run from one place to another, checking things off our to-do lists and feeling like we are running in place. Do you ever get so wrapped up in accomplishing everything in your day to day life that you forget the little things?
With everything moving and evolving so quickly it is almost impossible to keep up, don’t you think? Ok, so you are probably wondering where I am going with this as I am sure you have a million things to do (sorry, ☺). I guess it just gets you thinking about those little things, which really, truly are big things when you get down to it.
Sometimes it is nice to get swept away and taken to another place. I remember the days when I would spend hours upon hours outside with some of my favorite people creating a world of our own. It was a place of wonder, excitement, and imagination where anything was possible and time and age meant nothing. Here at this place, there were woods to be explored, s’mores to be cooked and memories to be made. Although we might not have had a tree house it sure was a cozy you and me house, cozy as can be house!
This house was my grandparents’ house. It really was a high up in the sky house though, nestled right up on the top of a hill and the name implies that it was no small hill. It was called Watermelon Hill. That is where Pagra and Granny (as we called them) created this special place. We spent time hiking, fishing, tending to the chickens and oh so much more, and although this little Kentucky town was small, we felt like we had the world at our fingertips! I remember spending so much time together and hearing about all the adventures my Pagra and Granny had been on. This only inspired us to create explorations of our own, and they would often get in on the fun. They were never afraid of giving us a run for our money with pranks and more!
Some people just have that impact on you when they’re around, where you have everything you need and anything is possible! Well, this release is about just that – going back to your childhood or seeing your little ones create that special place of their own now. Those kiddos really do teach us so much about appreciating the little things that life brings our way, where there is always time to be silly, adventurous and to create a little magic from time to time. As the nights get cooler and the beauty of the rich tones show up in nature, this release will reflect all these deeper colors and more. So enjoy this second release, as we hope it will bring you back and help you create new memories with those special people in your life!
Oh, and because you know that we love brightening your day just a bit…..why don’t we do a little giveaway?
