My last week was spent in the depths of a state with many hidden treasures. We worked through a program called Wwoof where we were matched up with a quaint plant/flower nursery in central Massachusetts. Use your talent of ‘Googling’ or just read the following clip description. Essentially, a person helps out at an organic farm 4-6 hrs/day in exchange for a room and food. Woofing is nationwide and worldwide! Sounds like a pretty awesome deal, huh? It was perfect for us. Our hostess was one of the kindness and most pleasurable people that I’ve ever met. We would wake up in the mornings to find breakfast made with mostly ingredients grown on her farm. After that kick start, we would then set out for our daily labors. She not only instructed us clearly on our tasks, but she also educated us on the variety of plants and flowers we were handling. After our work was completed for the day, Nick and I would go and explore. We visited near by towns one of which was Shelburne Falls, MA. You may be familiar with this town if you’ve seen the movies ‘The Judge’ or ‘Labor Day’. Every bend in the road brought us to yet another spectacular under-rated view. When it was our time to leave yesterday I rediscovered my love of country living, seeing the stars in the clear night sky and digging my hands in the soil of the earth.Today, I experienced yet another one of my great loves. Highway 6 took us all the way to the tip of Cape Cod. We hiked a two mile breakwater leading to a secluded beachfront, scarfed down a lobster roll, and soaked up the radiant sunshine.
Anyone can find love, what’s challenging is finding a companion. Although I may be a little biased, I definitely got lucky with mine.
We will be quite literally sleeping under the stars for a couple weeks on the east coast. So, enjoy your weekend and don’t forget to share a story/comment below. I would love to hear from you!
Most thanks to Lillian again for the fabulous time on Wilder Hill Gardens!
