Our experiences here on Henry Island have been amazing and humbling, and no doubt have changed us in ways we don’t even realize yet. But it feels like it’s time to go and so we are packing up and moving on. Heading home. It’s been almost twenty-five years since we first moved from our home state of Michigan, and even after something like nine more moves all over the country, our hearts are pulling us back to where we started.

I keep thinking about a farmer’s motto I recently saw in Modern Farmer: ‘Bloom where you were planted.’ I believe we will.
