The first day of spring also marks my mother’s birthday. It’s the perfect time to return to her. As the years go by (it’s been 17 years since her passing) the memories fade. I don’t remember what it feels like to be in her presence, what her eyes looked like when she smiled or what her laugh sounded like. Although these feelings fade, my gratitude grows infinitely. I’m grateful that she fell in love with the kindest, most
I’m going to D.C. in April with Defenders of Wildlife to lobby for wildlife. I’m so grateful for this incredible opportunity to get a glimpse of the inner workings of our government and if nothing else, take advantage of an opportunity to stand up for my values and take my truth as far as my voice will go. I don’t know exactly how this trip will unfold, who we will be talking to, or if anything will get through to
I was having a high anxiety day, so I decided to step away from the computer and get out my watercolors. I started painting clothing for a flyer for Wilder Goods and I couldn’t stop, it evolved into these paper dolls. It unleashed the clothing designer spirit in me.

Her studio is just above ours, so I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know her more over the past year. Her studio is such a beautiful expression of

And more importantly, to those who had no choice but to fight for basic rights or survival, my heart aches for you and I pray for the power to shift in your favor. For some existing is an act of resistance.
I want to watch my grandma wash her face. For me this is akin to saying, I want to be held, I want to be fed, I want to be warmly tucked into bed. Watching her wash her face is one of the pure, primal comforts of my life. I’ve been doing it—sitting on the closed toilet while she stands at the bathroom sink—for as long as I can remember. My grandma was my guardian throughout my infancy
In the tumult of emotions following the election I sought to gain understanding and focus in an otherwise dark cloud. The tarot has always been an aid which has helped me reset and accept insight that I otherwise would not be open to receiving. Ready or not, we’ve got some work to do.
This is the first part of a series called ‘Style Lineage’ — where we explore style in relation to our mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers — as far back as we can see. I got the idea from this amazing book that was gifted to me called, ‘Women in Clothes,’ a philosophy on style. They present a series call ‘Mothers as Others’ where women submit photos of their mothers before they were born and describe what they see. I couldn’t get enough and
