Fall + Winter Newsletter (2019)

Greetings from up north!

I absolutely love fall. I love the chill in the morning air, the strength of the afternoon sun, and the reunion with my slippers and favorite soup recipes. This September I'm not only transitioning into the fall season, but also into a new season of work and life.  For the first time in 30 years, there was no first day of the new school year for me. After 10 years of teaching, I've traded the rigid bell schedule for a more organic rhythm set by daylight hours and baby naps. I can't think of a more perfect place to enter this new season than up on the shores of Lake Superior, where we now call home.

As I begin this new season of life up north, I want to share many of the exciting things I have on my calendar. Highlights include teaching youth and adult classes at the Grand Marais Art Colony, art exhibits in Lutsen and Grand Marais, and two sales events in the Twin Cities area.

I hope you will join me for one or more of these events. Or, if not, then at least join me in the welcoming of a new season full of bright colors and cozy evenings!

Cheers!

Nan
