    I just love your week of objects! I am always looking forward to it and am so thankful that you still keep posting it, even though you have a newborn at home. Thank you for that, and also for encouraging so many people to do what is now very important to be done. This helps to stay focussed and not to get lost in despair. Have a lovely weekend!

    At Sea was a lot more yellow than I thought it would be!

    Hi Erin,

    This isn’t related to your post, but I wondered if you had recommendations for a simple/beautiful/well-designed alarm clock? I’m hoping to kick my iPhone out of my bedroom, but need to replace this particular function.

    That soup looks so good. Is it a squash soup? Great post!

    Dear Erin,
    This is my first comment on a blog post ever, but I just have to let you know that your posts are so inspirational and uplifting. After I re-read the interview with Joylynn about the forest school and looked at the great photos of happy kids and adults outdoors, I picked up my toddler son from day care and spent the next two hours in the garden putting seeds in pots. He had rosy cheeks and the most concentrated look on his face. I wouldn’t have gotten the idea without you – so thanks and congratulations on Baby Silas!
    Greetings from Germany

    I just read “unreachable places”, lovely. But that picture…it served oddly familiar, then it hit me. It’s the Tinsley House (the formal parlor), a 1900s era living history farm in Bozeman MT, where I live. My whole family volunteered there every summer for many years. Speaking of memories…..small world.
