the pioneer spirit

good news for me! we just booked a couple of nights with some dear friends at the itHouse out in joshua tree. this comes on the tail end of listening to a intriguing piece on npr on living 'off the grid.' i am fascinated by the idea of helping build and plan our own house while reducing our footprint. i'm a social creature so don't know if i could live anywhere too remote, but maybe on the weekends? probably more realistic...can't wait to share photos!

  1. Sounds like a lovely trip:) Im like you..I love remote locations for weekends but I also love my busy city live! Hugs and kisses, sweetie
    Have fun!

  2. What a beautiful place! I just found your blog and I wanted to share with you how much I am enjoying reading your posts. And seredipidiously (don't even think that is a word) I am doing a post today on vegetable art that I discovered on Betsy Edelberg's blog awhile back. We live in South Orange County but I so wish I lived closer so we could attend her wonderful workshops. Hopefully some day. Take care! xo Samantha ps. I am your newest "follow."
