The three of us, hanging out at Kirsten's booth at the Grass Valley Celtic festival

It's amazing how quickly Kirsten and Sandy fit into our foothills community. In my personal experience as a transplant, rural folks can sometimes be hesitant to open their arms to new arrivals, but when you really and truly belong somewhere, magic happens. These ladies have so much in common with all of my friends, it didn't take any pushing at all to get them to click together. History, costumes, alchemy, paganism, humor, music, natural healing, and good food- these things are the glue of my community. I wasn't surprised at all when I heard that Kirsten and Bluebird had made a pie together the other day.

I can't say it enough- Kirsten and Sandy, welcome home! We're so glad you're here.
