Far away there in the sunshine
are my highest aspirations.
I may not reach them,
but I can look up and see their beauty,
believe in them,
and try to follow where they lead.
-Louisa May Alcott
We are visiting a farm this weekend and I am not sure how internet-friendly it will be.
Jacob and Maverick will post tomorrow evening when we return, and I’m sure I’ll pop in with our local meal update.
Here’s some fun reading, some green, some not so much, until then:
