The countdown has begun! After nearly 8 years in Orange County, my husband, two boys (almost 2 and 4 years old) and our dog will be making the move up to northern California! I grew up in the Napa Valley (which is where I met my husband – in elementary school!). Our parents still live there, so not only do we get to raise our boys in the beautiful countryside, but we will have our parents (grandparents) close by!

I feel like this move is not only positive for my family, but will also provide some much needed breathing room for Zoe Organics. Country living inspires me; rolling hills, vineyards, winding country roads, wild flowers, fresh air…

Farmers Market season is about to begin and Zoe Organics is making plans to participate in several of the local markets. We will post a schedule once the dates are confirmed. I can’t wait to get involved with the community and am looking for local farms to source some of our raw ingredients from.

This move is still a bit surreal, maybe because things have happened quickly. I will deeply miss the friends and the network of brilliant people we have been so blessed by here in the great OC. But, the truth is, we are only a drive, or short flight away and we will visit often…

We are entering Easter weekend, and I can’t help but feel thankful; for my precious family and loved ones, for health and for the beauty that exists both within and around us. I am both humbled and grateful to my loving Savior, who gave the ultimate gift. How sweet it is.
