Hello, and welcome to The Seasoned Year.

This online space is intended as an invitation to stand back, slow down and pay attention to where we are in time and space.

An anchor in the storm.

A pause in the relentless do, do, do of our modern lives.

A breath, with which to sink back and feel the ground beneath you.

To root you in the moment you’re in and cultivate an appreciation for the wonder of this season, this moment, this earth you’re walking on.

Whether you’re where you want to be or not, whatever your dreams and big visions and schedule has in store for you, right here and right now is the greatest gift you have.

My hope is to inspire you to sink into and savour it, and here’s how:

Find out a little more about me here, including why I started The Seasoned Year and where I’m writing to you from.

Have a read of the blog over this way – as well as snippets of the seasons from the farm, I share tips on topics like how to connect to the seasons even if you’re in the city, and how to make the most of seasonal energy.

Click here to keep in touch and receive free seasonal reflections straight to your inbox. I’ll write to you about twice a month with heartfelt words and images from these hills, helping you tap into that spaciousness and freedom that’s always here.

To the left you can find links to follow along on social media – Twitter and Instagram are my favourite platforms.

And if you’d like to get in touch with questions, suggestions or invitations for guest posts or storytelling opportunities, drop me a line to hello@theseasonedyear.com and I’ll respond as soon as I can.

Thanks for stopping by!
