I created this lettering for fun, as one of my remakes from my #ibachthenandnow series. I had no idea it would touch the hearts of so many people and become my best selling print. Thanks so much to all of you sweet people who support my passion!⠀

We are all trying to find our space, that one space where we can dance in the sun, throw our hands up, mess up our hair, and scream hallelujah all the way to the mountain top. Wherever that space is I hope you let as much light, unscripted thoughts, and a whole lot of Jesus come through.

Emotion is a funny thing for me right now. Yesterday, I was in a completely raw and vulnerable position, surrounded by loved ones as they draped me in offers of prayer and affection. And quite frankly, it felt surreal. It was probably the most ‘out-of-body’ experience I’ve ever had, and I went home with a smile on my face thinking ‘I don’t get it, why is everyone making such a fuss? Everything is fine, everything will be fine.’
Then, today, I stood in the same space, staring at a fading bouquet while ‘To Build A Home’ played over the speakers. Finally, the tears broke through with ease, and an alarm went off in my mind, screaming ‘THISISTHEFUSS!!THISISTHEFUSS!!NOTHINGISFINE!!’ I know it will continue to come in inappropriate waves. The things that should feel heavy will feel effortless (perhaps because it is too difficult to give them the weight they deserve), and the day to day nonsense will choose to crush me with a hungry urgency simply because it demands to be even more important than the rest. Maybe the best thing I can do is give permission to the grief, wherever it decides to show up, whenever it feels it is the time. And through it all, I’ll find the flowers, will learn, like them, to grow and grieve with an absence of judgment and a fully present heart. //
Infinitely and impossibly grateful for @ek_goldenrule , and the way she loves me and stands with me in the absurdity. And to all the others, the love is kind today, will continue to be kind for a long long while.

“Maybe that’s how we’re born into this world -
Not stars, but constellations.
For each child
A mother and for each mother
A village.
Perhaps it’s better to be known like that -
Not as a single name
Attempting to be light,
But rather as the many hands
That reached out
To link fingers
With yours
In the most
Incredible
Dark.”
- @anna.lisabeth

We’re saying a temporary goodbye to our beloved poet shopgirl @anna.lisabeth tomorrow @goldenrulecollective and we’d love to have you join us. We will be giving 25% of all sales to Anna’s heart/lung transplant fund.
Please join us. And please do yourself a favor and follow Anna on her journey. She has a beautiful way with words and images and she’s found a way to articulate the depth of her emotion and gravity of her experience without the faintest hint of histrionics. 💛

I remember sitting at my first Seasonal Mama Dinner in October 2015 surrounded by 11 beautiful women and deeply knowing I had found some kind of golden space. A safe space that we all needed and craved. I wondered how I could keep doing it, IF I could keep doing it. 3 years later, I found myself seated at the most beautiful table, in a completely different country with 11 new incredible women, delicious food and supported by amazing sponsors and contributors. The beauty of these evenings is that we all bring something to the table, literally and emotionally. I hope there is always a need and a want for them, because as long as there is, you can bet I'll be showing up to guide and love on you all. 🙌🏻❤️ #Lovefestjourney #lfjmamagathering 📸 @tiffanykokal

This past fall, I was welcomed into the caring arms of the Golden Rule, and since then, it has grown to be so much more than just a place of work. These people, and this shop, have offered an immovable touchstone throughout the overwhelming and chaotic process of preparing for heart-lung transplant. Within these walls, this strange year has transformed into a clear and purposeful struggle, a season that has happened to provide so much unexpected beauty. On Thursday, the generosity of this community continues, and I would love to have you come for a while to be a part of my home, a part of my heart. Details above ^^ I hope to see you there.

This past Saturday marked the end of my time partnering with @ek_goldenrule in our magical little spot @wrkshpmn and I can’t imagine having spent the night any other way. It has been such a joy to see the warmth and beauty and true vulnerability that have blessed that space. I look forward to spending time as a visitor as this space continues to grow and evolve. And thank you Erin, for a lovely 2 years together. 🙌🏻

Jeff drove me to @wrkshpmn yesterday to help set up. He left and then 20 minutes later popped his head in the kitchen where I was finishing prepping and handed me these two magic bundles to help calm me down and create a healing space for all the mamas coming to join me later that evening. Today I’m saying YES to being worthy and trusting in the love I have with my wing man. Having a husband that supports your dream to host a dinner for 12 at full term pregnancy is pretty amazing. Knowing that he trusted me and my body to be able to do this gave me so much confidence and if I’m being honest, the last outward surge of energy before we welcome this next adventure together 🙌🏻❤️ #lovefestfamily #IAmWorthy #APlaceToLearnToLoveYourWholeSelf

And this is the place where I'm supposed to tell you what I've learned. Here’s the best I can do, a bowl of beans, rest for tired bones. These are reasonable roots for a life, not just its window dressing. They have comforted our species for all time, and for happiness' sake, they should not slip beneath our notice. Cook things, eat them with other people. If you tired your own bones while growing the beans, so much the better for you. (Excerpt from The Dirty Life by Kristin Kimball)
Gather. Gather. Gather. Nourish. Nourish. Nourish. A true place to learn to love your whole self. 🙌🏻❤️ #lovefestjourney #lfjmamagathering #APlaceToLearnToLoveYourWholeSelf
