a trip!





hello, dear readers!
i feel refreshed & renewed. luke & i just got back from our trip to southern missouri {lebanon if anyone is familiar} to see luke's family & talk about the past year & goals for 2010. it was such a nice trip. we played several board games, constructed origami figures & ate many delicious meals. early one morning, luke & i took our cameras out-and-about to find a breathtaking scene of golden fields, bare branches, & a frozen pond covered in a foggy stillness. on our way back to the cabin, as the sun rose higher in the sky, a warm light diffused into the sky to illuminate the fog & leave a golden embrace around us. it was the perfect ending to our winter break & a great beginning to our new semester with classes. i am really looking forward to my beginning fibers class. our units include dying fabric {which we start tomorrow!}, basket weaving, book binding, & paper making. i have a feeling that i will use this class as my little oasis in the midst of piles of books & papers in my other classes.

well, i hope your weekend was wonderful. it is so good to be back! enjoy your day, friends!

love,
natalie
