Happy new year forest friends! One of my New Years resolutions is to take more photos of my adventures and write more blog posts. So I’m starting off with a chilly winter day out in the snow with my best buddy Fionn. I spent the weekend out at my parent’s place where we had a delicious traditional Ukrainian dinner for Ukrainian New Years. We found out my father is 97% Ukrainian after getting an Ancestry DNA test done. But that’s a story for another time. Anyways dinner was great and I’m excited to keep learning more about my Ukrainian heritage which I barely know anything about except that cabbage rolls…
This past October I was asked to attend a fairy themed birthday party my friend was throwing for her two daughters. The invite was a little different as I was not going as a guest but the entertainment. What is a fairy party without a real fairy?! My friend knew I already had the outfit, accessories, glitter and wings ready to go and asked me if I would dress up and add some magic to the party. How could I say no?
It’s that time of year again when we celebrate a beautiful day dedicated to the fairies! Fairy day is a holiday celebrated all around the world from the imagination of artist Jessica Galbreth. I remember seeing her work back when I first became aware of the Fae and it really inspired me to look more into the world of fairies. Every year I’ve tried to acknowledge this day as a reminder that there’s always time to appreciate the magic in our lives. Celebrate today by looking closely at the magic around you. Those who don’t look for magic will never find it.
Every Sunday I try to head out into the world and go on an adventure. Depending on the weather I sometimes don’t always get to but today was probably the best day I’ve seen in a while. My dog Fionn and I couldn’t resist the sunshine pouring in through the windows so we got our things together and went on a little adventure.
