Summer is beginning to feel like a distant memory. Fall is just around the corner and I’m really excited for all the warmth and colours it brings. I want to reflect on a special place that I had the pleasure to visit this summer. My childhood friend owns the most beautiful farm filled with tall trees and rolling hills. Her children play freely in the open fields, explore the barn and jump to their hearts content on the trampoline. My own children absolutely love to visit and are transformed when we are there. I’m completely convinced that growing up with nature & animals is one of the best gifts you can give your children.
