there is so much comfort in rhythm and routines, repeating activities day after day, week after week, year after year. our family faced a very tragic loss last week, and while we're all still struggling to accept this reality and experience moments in which all that seems possible for us is to give up - we are forced, especially by and for the little ones, to carry on.
so even though there is so much sadness on our minds and in our hearts, this simple activity reminded us of all the beauty, abundance and life around us. i'm so glad we didn't skip this year. today we want to make some apple sauce and apple butter. some to eat right away and some to keep, for more comfort on cold winter days.
make sure to give all your little (and big) loved ones an extra hug today!
wishing you all a good start into your weekly rhythm.
