Things I Love: Has it really been that long?! Yipes!

Wow…it has been a while since I’ve last checked in! I’ve been traveling from festival to festival, and any time not taken up by traveling, packing, unpacking, repacking or full on festival-ing has been spent caring for my sweet little home and garden. I hope you all are doing well out there, in your little corners of the world!

Sorting out garb for Festival of Legends – leaving tomorrow to kindle the hearth! #festivaloflegends

In April, Eric and I were part of the Festival of Legends. This lovely event has been dear to us since it began, and we return every year to lend our efforts to the event management as well as run our tarot reading booth. I love this event because I meet and visit with a few friendly Pixie’s Pocket readers every year (Hi, Donna, Robin, Escher!), which is great, because it proves that you are real people out there and not just figments of my imagination! Yay!

The following weekend, we were off to the mountains with a few close friends (wink) for a Beltane festival, welcoming the warmth of the Spring and the return of vitality. We drummed, danced, laughed, celebrated, and most of all, rebuilt and restored old connections with loved ones. A fitting time, indeed, although I found myself pretty exhausted with the two events back to back! Luckily, we had a weekend “off” between that festival and the next one…

We spent a wet, muddy week in the lovely hills of Virginia, helping to prepare the site and working on a lovely event with lots of lights, music, and fire! This video is one of the most peaceful moments that I experienced. In the immediacy of the moment, I debated pulling out my camera to capture it, but I’m glad that I did.

There’s my holiday snaps, my travel photos! 🙂 Thanks for watching, and don’t worry…now that I’m back, safely ensconced in Pixieland, I have some herbal recipes and more familiar material on the way to you, oh patient people.
