When Andie (a writer for Seattle’s Child Magazine) mentioned that she was looking for a family in transition to write about, I knew we more than qualified. It’s been almost exactly a year since we sold our home, bought land and started the building process. We’ve never fully unpacked and it’s been quite the roller coaster! I’ve opened up a little on here and shared some our story and our heart’s desire for our family. Pretty soon I’ll need to write another post about the process, because slowly but surely, we’re making progress! Maybe I should record a video and talk about it? What do you guys think? Here is the link to my previous post, in case you’d like to read more about our transition.
For the article, Seattle’s Child sent out a photographer to capture our family. Then the article came out and I thought I’d share it here, in case any of you are curious about what our life looks like in transition. Here’s a link to the article.
Since the magazine was published, our garden has really taken off. Here are a few photos from our tiny, but happy transition “make do” garden.
Peas, corn, onions and kale.Radishes and beets. We have an entire bed dedicated to flowers. Simply because flowers make me happy.
Our first harvest. Pretty sure radishes were created to give us that tiny self esteem boost we all need at the beginning of the growing season.
Cosmos and zinnias.
What’s growing in your garden right now? Have you ever built a home or lived in transition? How did you thrive in the chaos?
