Mosquitoes, Storms, Sun, and, Silver
I’ve been living in our cabin by myself for the past month.
While Bryson has been hard at work finishing school in the Okanagan, I’ve been busy on the ranch working on silver, our garden, and doing daily chores to keep myself busy.
My neighbor Marion has been great company. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that we have been on daily adventures together. Canoeing, mushroom picking, strawberry picking, getting eaten alive by mosquitos, taking care of our landlord’s animals while they were away, and sharing stories over cups of tea and homemade brioche. She is a true dream and is also an incredibly talented seamstress. You should definitely go check out her Etsy!
The land is so alive here! Everywhere I look are daisies, Indian paintbrush, wild sweet peas, camomille, tiger lilies, and mushrooms galore! It’s been a rainy summer with types of storms I had never experienced before. I have seen countless bolts of lightning, and Ruby has howled back at all the thunder that roars our way. We also experienced an unbelievable hail storm which I will never forget as it destroyed half of our garden.
I’ve also visited my family in both Kelowna and Vancouver. My mom and sister are both in the process of moving and have given Bryson and me some beautiful things to complete our home. I feel so so lucky driving home from a trip with a car full of vintage goods from my family! I think my favorite additions have been the new seafoam chairs my sister gave us for our dining room. They are just so dreamy!
Today the bedding is drying outside in the first summer-like day we’ve had in a while, I am packing my things, and tomorrow I’m driving back to the Okanagan to see my love.
I’m in desperate need to feel his hugs and breathe in his scent. He is my happy place and always will be.
I’m going to take a bit of time off and enjoy everything coming my way for the next little while. Soon, I will start sharing more of my life, studio, jewelry making process, and inspiration on Instagram, Youtube, and this platform. I absolutely can’t wait!
I hope all is well with you!
Let’s talk soon ok?
