Happy New Year from Gathering the Stories.

Here we are at the threshold of a New Year. Many bridges have been crossed over the course of this year, for this project and for my personal life (I married my best friend this last August!). I am so grateful for all of you taking this journey through the past with me and holding space for these stories so they never die and letting me tell you about my little corner of the world, rooted in Place.
Footbridge_over_Rock_CreekI am super focused on making Gathering the Stories more than a blog, but also a book. I lost my job in October of this year and it was the best thing that could have happened for this project.

Much is in store for the coming year and I look forward to sharing it with you all. Happy New Year!
