As I’m sure it’s been apparent for several months now…Fig&Sparrow is on it’s way out.. . I’m tossing around the idea of starting a new blog that better fits our life now. Truth be told the last several months have been hard ones. Every since my little Saige was born I’ve been wading through the heavy muck of “post-postpartum depression” as they call it. It is a difficult thing to digest and conquer and even more difficult to describe so I’ll leave it at that for now. On top of this LQ has had mono. He is much better now but I’ll tell you; there is a reason two year olds are not supposed to get mono…Handing someone who has no coping skills a long drawn out and pretty severe sickness to try and cope with is just cruel. My darling LQ, who has dealt with much in such a short time…Be well my son.
Baby Saige is a blossom. Joyful and full of affection for all. He sleeps through the night and coos and has just started rolling over. He is the light that shines through each of our days.
My life is very full right now. My heart so quickly expanding. Every moment filled with giggling sons and piles of dirty laundry. I’m thoroughly enjoying updating our new little home, and have big plans for the year to come… Our big goal is to supply 90% of our own food without buying any of it. It seemed a lofty one at first but we’ve been reading up on it and preparing for a large garden next year. M. has been hunting and (get ready for this) We’ve even salvaged some fresh venison road-kill! Here’s to radical FREE-dom. IF I do start one; the new blog will be largely focused on our “Homesteading” experience…I also want to share more of my personal thoughts and journal entries with only occasional guest interviews and such when applicable.
I will of course link to the new blog when its up, and I hope you all keep in touch. Just email me as I am deleting the fb site today as well. I’ve so loved every minute of Fig&Sparrow and learned so much…I think for now though, it’s time for a new home.
Here’s to coming days and the holy joy that’s still unfolding in all of us. Here is to exploring new things and allowing ourselves to be fully experienced by those around us. Here’s to all of you…be blessed.
