I am so very curious …

as to how this is going to play out.

I am not interested in rushing or controlling the process but I am incredibly curious about this entire process. I headed up North last weekend with 5 friends to create a barrier between the snow melt and the actual tent. I now have a 1 foot moat around my tent and a deck free of snow. I also have an outdoor fire pit and a ice block couch.

I love that you can’t see the division between work and play.  My heart expands a little with each visit when I see what we accomplished and how we decided to do it.

The Brilliance of Winter

Last week I went up to my land to clear the snow off the tent and make sure it was still standing.

What did we bring? 4 delicious croissants, 2 specialty coffees, sparkling water, my camera and a bottle of wine.

Just Broken In – Winter

In the right setting winter is a stunning season and my land is the right setting. Winter can also be one of the hardest seasons to make it through. This November, we wrapped the tent up and reinforced it with some 2x4s and said a little prayer.jbi-roof3 jbi-roof13 jbi-roof26 jbi-roof28 jbi-roof29

December was very kind to us and January so far has been good. Yesterday I drove up to make sure everything was ok.

There was about a foot and a half of snow on the roof. I went in the tent, pushed my hand up and hit it once, the entire roof’s snow cover slide off. Another text book moment. jbi-roof25
