October: The View from Here

And just like that, we're smack-dab in the middle of fall. Most mornings I find myself reaching for my wool socks and the evening light is beginning to show itself a little more with each passing day. Our September tour was a party-and-a-half, and if you made your way out to one of the shows we thank you immensely.
This month is the last of the Montana shows until next May, which is always bittersweet. There's a little sign we drive by on our way North to the border that says "Leaving Montana" and it makes my heart pang a little every time we pass by it.
In personal news, we sold our house and it closes at the end of this month. I'm still processing all. the. feels. These four plastered walls have been our shelter and comfort for the past 4.5 years, and the most at-home I've ever felt. I remember the night we first pulled into the yard from the 12-hour drive from Brandon, Manitoba after the motorhome broke down on our move across the country. It was nearly 3am and I looked up at the sky and marvelled at how clear and bright the stars were.
So, where are we going? We're not sure yet. But if you've been around here long enough, you'll know that this isn't the first time we've burned it down and started again (and then again). For now, we're making lists, checking off the boxes and reminding ourselves that the obstacles are just part of the journey.
