Tail end of summer

It is hard to believe that summer is quickly winding down and soon shorts and afternoon barbeques will be replaced with long sleeve shirts and the turning of leaves. But for right now, it is still summer and the warmth of the sun still casts its translucent glow as day fades into dusk and the animals scurry with the buzz of the bees and rolling around in the emerald green grass of their pastures.

Summer, for us, is typically a whirlwind with markets, the animals and a whole host of other responsibilities that accompany the farm life. This summer wasn't any different, but for right now we strive to take in the beauty of our surroundings and never take it for granted. Tristan and Gabe have taught us the lesson of taking life by the moment, not by the year or next event on the calendar.
