This morning I got things done around the house while Bracken was snug against my belly in the ergo carrier. He loves that thing and so do I (thanks Grandma Jensen/GiGi!) Jeff has been creating in his workshop, preparing for Holiday Market (our big market of the year.) He created some new handcarved Tree pendants and necklaces due to popular demand and I've been spending the afternoon loading them on our online Etsy Store.
As I've been snuggling with Bracken while I load them, I've been feeling so incredibly grateful that we work from home. It makes it so we get to eat all three meals together as a family. And it gives opportunities like taking pictures of Jeff's art with mossy backgrounds in between hauling firewood. We can set our own schedule and our home life can blend beautifully with our "work" life (which doesn't feel like work at all since we love it so much.) I would miss Jeff and Bracken terribly if I didn't spend my days with them.
We give thanks for this gift every day.
Our friend Lindsey bought a pendant and some buttons from our Etsy Store recently and wrote a blog post about how much she likes them. We were happily surprised when we saw it.

You can see her vintage wool coat that she spruced up with some naturally shed deer horn buttons Jeff made. And you'll see lots of other wonderful things on her site while your there (all the delicious food pictures are sure to make you hungry!)
