friends forever

Our wonderful friends Ami and Patrick have recently come back to Calgary after a year of traveling. They spent the last 12 months in New Zealand and parts of Australia learning, growing, and finding their perfect little lot in life. Calgary is a much too brief stop before they head back to Ontario, nearer to family, to settle down. It has been a jam packed couple of weeks filled with many get togethers, wonderful meals and LOTS of stories. Part of me is so unbelievably sad at the thought of them moving away from us again, but I am more excited for them to be able to grow roots. To find a home they will do truly amazing things with. To visit and reconnect (like these last few weeks) many many times in the future.

Last night we had an awesome night over at Ashley and Heather's house. They run a natural building business hosting workshops on everything from cob ovens to making your own natural clay plasters. Needless to say, we had a great time in their garden making cob oven pizza, sharing beers and mead, and basking in the warmth of the roaring fire. The weather was just a touch chilly, but perfect for cuddling up next to each other and talking the night away.
