It's been raining here, finally. Soft, soaking rain after a long dry spell. I came in chilled and damp and muddy yesterday and announced, "It's exquisite out there!" You know - exquisite: damp, wet, drizzly. Yet somehow, truly, it is.... Continue reading

Grace, I use (and love!) our Baby Bath and Massage oil as a facial cleanser and moisturizer. Its amazing! So gentle, light, and quickly absorbed.

You are grace. I know the sting you speak of quite well, so yes, reaching for grace and peace for her. And raining down love on your life, your land, and your courage to come here and share your story. It's a messy road we've chosen, isn't it? Love, Rachel

They remind me of my grandma, too. She lived not far from here and one edge of her property was a long row of lavender lilacs. I keep thinking of going and knocking on the door and asking if I can dig a few for memory's sake.

Different worlds indeed! (Thought we also have prickly pear here, so we have green plus prickers.) :-)

Sending love your way, mama. Be gentle with yourself. x
Sometimes as parents we forget to take care of ourselves. With all that caring-for-others going on, it's easy to let our own nurturing slide. When Sage was a newborn I actually would forget to eat. For days on end. That's... Continue reading

Today I am seeking small reasons to be thankful. To feel rich, regardless of our dollars. Reasons that are here with us always, ever in our grasp, but often overlooked. I am looking for the magic that ever encircles us.... Continue reading

In a world where it sometimes feels like everyone else has it together while we're falling apart, it is a comfort to know that we're not alone. That everyone struggles, that everyone is imperfect. The day I took the photo... Continue reading

Oh, goodness, my Lupine needs one of these. I made a pair of shorts for her with similar pockets but they don't get much love. (Orange was my fatal error, despite it being the sweet bees and roses of Heather's Nanny Bee. Sigh.) A skirt would be perfect.
