Every year I celebrate the longest day of the year with a Solstice Party at Cairncrest Farm. We invite all of our local friends and neighbors to come over and hang out with us on the front porch, play lawn games, share a meal, whatever. This year I feel the fullness of life even more acutely, as I have my MFA degree in hand, an accomplishment I feel proud to have completed. These last four or five years I have had a lot on my plate – I bought a farm, started a business, had two kids, got an MFA and built (almost) a house! I think I’m going to look back on this time in my life and think I was completely crazy.
