a new beginning







well here i am, in a new place therefore it must be a beginning. we have moved, left the city and we are in the country on the farm. we live on a farm in the country but wait, we are only twenty five minutes from the city. that might be perfect! so i decided that i would just give a little newness to the blog. i am nervous, the old is so familiar to me and perhaps to you so let try it together, i think we can get used to it.

the farm has a name, cucumber hill farm and i like it very much. i also love saying it, well mostly outloud to the dogs:)we introduced sophie and grace (dogs) to mike the horse and clarabelle the cow( not isabelle as i had thought). grace tried to play with the clarabelle and mike, we kept our eyes closed as we prepared for grace to be kicked by clarabelle, she tried her hardest but it is clear that she was happy to have grace around. sophie is much more calm and her and mike seem to have this quiet understanding and respect.

Oh dear friends, i am nervous, excited for this new beginning. there is so much to learn, like how to get clarabelle back into the pasture when she runs to the corn field for extra treats. or how to clear all the weeds from the pumpkin patch(1/2 acre of pumpkins), where to start the vegetable beds this year for next spring but mostly how to put my camera down, i am so inspired i can barely stand it: do not worry though the city has tall beautiful historical stone buildings, cafes and my studio so i will not just be a farm girl:) i also will be doing a few special photo shoots, working on special projects that i hope to share with you in the months to come, hopefully mixed in with some travel - so i guess what i am trying to say it will not be dull around here!


* i would like to say a special thanks to aran and paul for helping me with my blog redesign!

oh my goodness! what an adventure. after looking over my syllabi for the fall, i think what i'd really rather do is head out to the country and get my hands dirty! but if you ever head back into the city for a cuppa at a cafe, i'd love to join! xo.

Oh Nadia, wishing every happiness in your beautiful new home on cucumber hill farm - years and years of love and laughter! Things like working out how to weed the pumpkin patch will come... I don't blame you for just wanting to soak it all in through your lens right now. Can't wait to share this new adventure with you...

Your life sounds so idyllic! The best of both worlds. To work around people and activity and cafes. Yet to retreat to peacefulness, animals, nature and space.

Enjoy!! And I am glad for us that you can't put your camera down.
