Fall is here!!! This collection and photo shoot was inspired by walking your own path with confidence, trusting your intuition and embracing your truest self. Tessa, this stunner of a model is a farmer and poet studying to be a speech therapist. An outdoor woman to the core, she grew up right here in Bozeman, MT and I’m so inspired by her unique style and vibrant personality. I couldn’t be more excited about what’s new in the shop, I hope you love it too! You can shop the collection here.
I’m so excited to add the work of Katrin Reifeiss to the mix. Each item she creates tells a story, influenced by her love of travel and painting. Her style is laid-back and her pieces are easy to pack and can be worn freely – from city to surf. Her aesthetic is not bound by time, rather is timeless and not meant to be disposed of after one season. With a focus on craftsmanship, her creativity and spontaneity of design are shown in her hand-dyed fabric. Each item is designed and dyed in her studio in Brooklyn, then they are sewn in small batches in the NYC garment district.
Hand Dyed Indigo Foldover Clutch $86
Hand Dyed Ngong Moyen Clutch $64
This collection of handmade, embroidered and naturally dyed clothing is certainly Made of Dreams. I love the use of sticks as hangers. Discovered on You are a the River.
I’m working on creating a little reading/meditation/writing nook in our home. I’ve been soaking up some inspiration and I’m loving these three looks. Our nook will definitely be a mix of handmade + vintage and I’m so excited to put it all together.

Two of my girlfriends and I recently started an On Being chat group. Last night we talked about the interview with poet Marie Howe. We talked about our awe of poetry and how it so magically captures those deep elusive emotions within us. I mentioned how much I wish I could write poetry. I write almost every morning, usually a recollection of my dreams and any insight they may have brought. However, my writing is usually very dry and not very inspired. So, we decided to try our hands at writing poetry, why not? So, this morning I jotted down a few lines and to my surprise I really enjoyed it! So, here is my very novice attempt at a poem…
The grasses along this dirt road
gently urge me on
as if to say
keep going, you’re on the right path.
I am drawn in
to the field up ahead
an iridescent blend of greens and blues.
Was this here before?

I feel the weight of my daughter on my chest
an unbearable lightness.
She watches the latest unfolding go by
as if she knows
and is comfortable being one with everything.
Not like me.
Why is it so hard
to just be.
I’m always searching for that perfect fragrance and I rarely find something that really grabs me. That’s why I swooned when I found Kate of Na Nin fragrance. I couldn’t have dreamed up a better fragrance for the Sertraline (Antidepressant) Can You Drink Caffeine With Zoloft - everythinggoldenblog.com woman. Her scents are earthy and elegant and she magically captures those nostalgic memories that make life so sweet. Check em out…
Landslide is an earth mamma scent. Blended notes of patchouli, cedar, rosewood & sandalwood. Inspired by the ultimate gypsy lady, Stevie Nicks.
Cripple Creek is a smoky pine scent. Blended notes of tobacco, pine, amber, cypress and vetiver. Inspired by riding around in a 1954 Willy’s Jeep and listening to The Band.
Jolene is a spicy floral scent with hints of citrus and musk. Blended notes of black pepper, angelica root, mandarin, amber and rose. Inspired by listening to this Dolly Parton classic, while envisioning a beautiful heartbreaker who’s always getting herself into trouble.
Farewell is a country, floral scent. Blended notes of rose, geranium, basil and lavender. Inspired by gardening while listening to Bob Dylan.
You can also try them all with the sample pack.

Last weekend we hiked out to a mountain fire lookout and spent the night in a cabin surrounded by breathtaking beauty. It was Ember’s first backpacking trip and she was a natural. I just had to get a shot of my beautiful friend Bethany wearing some handcrafted accessories from the shop, a true outdoor woman, she wears them so well.
Photo and following excerpt from Living with Wolves.
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) has proposed a new “Wolf Management Stamp.” The original intent of the stamp is to offer a way for people to contribute financially to the conservation and protection of Montana’s wolves. Currently wolf management and conservation is funded almost exclusively by the sale of hunting, trapping, and fishing licenses, which means hunters and anglers are shaping wildlife management philosophy. Should the “Wolf Stamp” become available, it will offer an opportunity for anyone, including non-hunters, recreationists, conservationists and any of the general public to have a say in wolf management policy.
This sounds like a step in the right direction. You can comment here (deadline is Aug. 22nd) and offer your support for the program as well as encourage transparency as to how the funds are spent and ensure that they are being used for their intended purposes.

In the profound darkness,
I touch the face of
the star-filled Medicine Bowl.
The night sky opens to me…
Creation courses through my woman form.
The pulsating light of stars dance,
animating the male within.
My senses scream with aliveness.
light the fires
that border this path
of rapture, still becoming.
The womb of night beckons,
the silent birth of that which
has not yet taken form.
Diving deeply into the Void,
without any comfort or guarantees,
I learn to trust the eternal process.
The beauty of emergence is a mystery
that I can joyfully endure,
knowing that it will bring me home.
