Meanwhile, in the kychtyn ...
Whipping up goodness from “The Kytchyn Witche: Guide to Natural Living” by Katie Haegele and Nadine Schneider —@kytchyn_witche
This little zine is full of recipes that use everyday ingredients to keep your home and body clean and happy. And fun, personal anecdotes along the way.
I first read Katie’s work ( @thelalatheory ) when I reviewed “White Elephants: On Yard Sales, Relationships, and Finding what was Missing” for Utne Reader back in the *day* ... probably 2012.
Her writing is thoughtful, witty and relatable, and we kept in touch via email and eventually letters 💌.
She mailed me a copy of “Cats I've Known: On Love, Loss, and Being Graciously Ignored.”
I sent her a copy of The Cold Spell.
When she sent a copy of Kytchyn Witche, I knew we were indeed kindred spirits!
Here’s to pen pals, kitchen witchin’ and appreciating the little bits of magic in life. 🥂 🧪🧚♀️ #currentlyreading

Sometimes there are people in New York who bring me such joy. This older fellow is a regular at this shop, knows the names of the baristas, and makes the best small talk as they fix his hot chocolate (yes, hot chocolate). Also I am pretty sure he gets his style tips from @halemur.

Anddd he's out! 🥳🙌 For the past week Liam has been fighting nap time tooth and nail 🙄 Today I tried a different tactic and ran them on the river trail right before nap time 😅 While it did result in about two different meltdowns everyone passed out promptly on the car ride home 👏 I'd call that a win! #motherhoodunplugged

I can’t believe the weekend is here again!
Anyone else feel like this week went by so quickly?!
Serve them a feast, they refuse. Sit down with your own bowl, they flock like birds. 🙄🍇🍒😂 .
Honestly, my kids are driving me a bit bonkers today. 😳 lol. But I know its 95% because I'm just really, really tired. So I'm trying to give us all the grace of a low-expectations day. Usually I work extra on Fridays, to set up well for a sabbath on Saturdays... but today, we need more rest in THIS moment. This time, it cant be pushed off till tomorrow. And that's perfectly ok:)
Happy Friday, my dears:) Don't forget to accept grace for yourselves, too!! ❤🤗
our boy is here! ✨ judah wilder donohoe made his debut earthside on 2/19/2020 at 4:29pm. 8lbs 5oz + 19 inches long. he has completely captured our hearts + has taken the title of the most “chill” baby at our stay at the hospital. we are thrilled to be home + we are currently enjoying all of the newborn squishiness bliss.

Anyone else feel as excited as we do that it’s Friday?!?!
We’re thinking about what’s within our reach this weekend to help us recharge, reconnect, and tap into some JOY.
Drop us a word or emoji below if you’re with us 👇🏼✨👊🏼🌿☀️
A few of our favs: down time, play, time in nature, moving our bodies, and time with our people. These things are actually crucial for our wellbeing as humans - not optional as we’re often taught to believe.
So do some cartwheels, sing at the top of your lungs, dance to your favorite song in your kitchen, grab some paints and create for the sake of it, explore a new place, make something, laugh with someone, be goofy, be YOU. .
I love the Moomins. The book in the picture is one about their world and how Tove Jansson created it, and this spread shows the cover of the first Moomin story Tove Jansson published. The moomins look so very different from how we're used to. Isn't it wonderful?
This was Tove Jansson's beginning. Before the success, before moomins became what they'd be remembered as. When she was still in the process of bringing her idea to life.
I think it serves as a beautiful reminder for all us creators. Don't compare your early stage ideas to someone else's creations honed over years of work. Everyone starts with something that maybe isn't quite what we'd like it to be. And we have to go through the beginning to get to the middle and end, just like Tove Jansson did.
So let's enter the weekend on that note! 😊 Who's doing something where you feel like a beginner?
Posted this to my stories the other day, but can you blame me for wanting it to live here forever? No joke, this was captured in between them kissing one another. I know siblings fight - little sister to two older brothers here - and they do too, but it truly is more smiles and laughter between the two of them. Here’s to hoping they include baby sibling in their love fest with ease and joy ♥️ #hartandnell

Thanks for the Insta-spiration 🤓 @dcgrandpa and @terry_fishman !! Working from home today I got a crazy hankering for caramelized shallots (and garlic) and needed to use up a head of cauliflower which I riced and browned and then tossed all together with some fridge-foraged white beans, barley, feta, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Topped with chili crisp, it was a fabulous lunch! And will be for the next few days 💃🏻 unless BD and/or my house monkeys 🐲🐲 take a liking.

”Sweet Light” 16 x 20 in. on canvas
I always wondered how I would incorporate my undying love of deserts into what I do for a living (my dream job as a kid was ”candy taster”). I think I finally found the answer.
Happy Friday friends ✌️🏼I’ll be heading back for day two of my mural @vans today. My legs might fall off from this busy week, but my stoked level is at a 10. I think that's gonna carry me through.
Keep an eye on the stories for progress updates.

There’s something about freshly washed laundry hanging on the line 💙 Well, that and it’s a lot better for it and the earth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For many households, the dryer is the 2nd-most energy-consuming appliance, right after the refrigerator. However, by simply switching to air drying your clothes, you could reduce your home’s carbon footprint by 2,400 lbs a year and save over $200 on your bills.
Tossing and tumbling in a dryer can cause wear and strain on clothing fabric due to stress on seams and snags from buttons and zippers. And the high heat in the dryer can ruin some fabrics and cause irreversible damage. Air drying will prevent stretching and shrinking (and wrinkles!), which means you can wear them longer and it will save you the cost of re-purchasing them over time!
The sun’s UV rays can be used to whiten and disinfect your laundry. When hung dry on a clothesline, it even helps to remove lingering stains. But it can affect the coloring in dark-colored clothing, so best to keep those in the shade. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And line drying will get you outdoors more often, so you can spend more time with Mother Nature 💕

It's Friday! DARE to make some noise..🥳 Thank you for all of the birthday wishes yesterday! You guys are lovely. 🥰
This is a throwback to my art show back in early January at the Carnegie Center for Creativity. It is rare that I have an opportunity to showcase a collection of my jewelry, paintings and ceramics all in one place, but I loved doing it. Hopefully more to come. 🧡
My sweet husband gifted this beautiful Bible to me for Valentines Day ✨💗💐
It stands as a reminder to always see the beauty that God created in the world and His love for all creation. Including you and me 💜
Chris told me he knew this was the Bible for me because of the hand painted cover of the Aspens in Colorado, which holds a special place in both our hearts 💕🏔

Capturing the every day candidness and beauty of childhood is such an incredibly fun and increasing joy for me.
Lately everyone has a different theory about food, lots of influencers promoting one way or another … Research, scientist, books and more books from all kinds of sources …. Let me share with you only one thing today, eat natural unprocessed foods … if you do that daily, mindfully , the results will show themselves pretty soon. Give it a try and experience it on your own skin!!! 🤗🥗🧈
I definitely consider myself an oat milk connoisseur after using it in my lattes every single day 😂 I love trying different brands of oat milk, and my current obsession is @oatsome.official 😍 [ad] plain and simple, espresso and oat milk is my go to in the morning! #oatsome#oatsomeoatmilk#betterbodyfoods#BBF

Dreaming of warm sunny evenings and sitting in wildflowers fields looking down to the sea 💚
Been poorly for weeks with a cold, then flu then a chest infection! 🙄 Turns out I am not very good at not doing anything! But the cats and dog have kept me company as they haven’t fancied venturing out into the waterlogged muddy garden either!
Spring soon though 🌱🌱🌱💚X

Perfect ponytail ☁️ на этом фото мне безумно нравится мой цвет волос.😍
Сколько бы я ни задумывалась об окрашивании, решиться все не могу.🙈
Вы как считаете, подошёл бы моим волосам другой цвет? Темнее или светлее?✨
