Nostalgia {Returning Home}...

on friday i shared this photo and my thoughts on nostalgia here...


to me nostalgia is {returning home}...

a little bit of life that makes me more aware and present...

i didn't mean to take a week long vacation from this little place...

we celebrated two birthdays, celebrated the annual spring festival our school kids put on each year, celebrated our life as stewards by plowing, harrowing, and spreading the never ending piles of manure...{that last one was a stretch on the celebrating part...more like i celebrated that the winds weren't tainted anymore} ;0)

i was nostalgic...

i was aware and present for my family...

i think i also hit a wall, complete full throttle, head-long, straight into a meltdown...

with all the inspiration, lists of things to do, dreams i wanted to make happen right now...

i crashed...

i reevaluated where i wanted to be in life...

where i wanted this little space to go and what my main passions are...

i am feeling renewed with creative ideas, feeling more {together}...

i want to give a stronger sense of nostalgia while you visit here...

i want you to feel as if you are {returning home} for just a little bit...

to give a sense of calmness in this crazy thing we call life...

Oh Kristin,
This photo is so exceptionally beautiful!! I don't know what it is about old broken down barns and homes, but they always speak to me. Must be in my southern roots!
So glad to have you back.
Your photos are absolutely stunning!
Have a lovely week.
Sincerely,
Melinda

Oh Kristin, I always enjoy 'coming home' to your blog. It's always lovely, inspiring, encouraging.
I do believe it's 'your fault' I decided to participate in Soul Restoartion.
God bless!

I love this photo. Love it.

You, sweet lady, are such a good mom, and a good wife.

Your blog IS a calming place and certainly does hold a sense of warmth and nostalgia. I love visiting. It's YOU we all love visiting. :)

Hope the weather is turning for you. Are you guys still calving? Do you have commercial cattle at all or just purebred? We are just starting to calve...in FEET of snow, but at least the temps aren't so cold. I know Spring will find us soon.

If a creative rest is what you need then produce this beautiful picture...so be it.
Wonderful images.
Thank you for sharing!

Lovely, lovely photo, Kristin. It certainly does stir up a sense of nostalgia. And your blog always does. It's akin to that worn, nubby afghan we all keep on our couch to snuggle up with while reading a book on a cold, rainy day.
