Different perspectives.

This shot was taken from a helicopter flying over Apricot Lane Farms.  Do you see the psychedelic-looking block towards the bottom of the photo?  That’s what we call Block M, or the “Fruit Basket.”  Seventy-four varieties of fruit call that space home, and the paths that wind throughout it are designed to offer horse drawn carriage-rides through the blooming trees, one day.  I love this photo because it gives me new perspective on this place we call home.

Kinda like this photo…

Same home… different angle.  It makes me happy.

In an effort for me to hit the transitional nail squarely on the head: John named today’s recipe Happy Sticks, not only because eating them made us happy, but nutritional yeast, one of the ingredients in Happy Sticks, is filled with B vitamins that, well, make a person Happy!

Happy Thanksgiving to all, and if you’re in need of a pre-dinner snack, try setting out a bowl of Happy sticks and think about how lucky we each are to be experiencing this crazy ride called Life.

    You all are awesome. My soul smiles, laughs and rejoices that you all are doing such great work in this life. Your parents must be so proud. And I know God is too. You all give me hope and the peace I so need in these times. <3

      Myla – I love that shot, too. It is my husbands, and he isn’t set-up to sell his prints at this point. Maybe one day! I’ll pass along your sweet note.

    I LOVE the airiel view of the homestead and I can’t wait to take that horse drawn carriage ride through the blooming trees. Will you be opening up for tours anytime, soon? :o)

    What a beautiful and peaceful place to be. I’m sure it’s very HARD work, but it’s obvious you love what you are doing. Congratulations on the labor of love you are creating, it’s amazing!
