adventures in intentional living, radical homemaking, finding meaningfulness in the mundane, and subverting the food systems that be to feed my family nourishing food from our bit of land.

Simple Pleasures

Simple Pleasures

I am in full on Pride mode this week! I have been doubling down on my queer culture reading, documentary watching, music listening, art seeking, researching, and idolizing my LGBTQ elders, movers, shakers, and community members. I am, and will be, celebrating and honoring them/us all month. I do in a subdued way with my everyday life, but June is a nice time to really embrace it all and get excited, passionate, and forward with it. This part of me, this community, makes my life rich, dynamic, and special. I am grateful for it everyday, and wouldn’t give it up for the world. 

I hope you all have community you feel your belonging to deep in your bones. A community that you feel your heart strings pull back in time for. A community you feel a burning responsibility for. 

Here are a few of the things that made my week sweet. And I hope that you have many of your own.


My new longboard - for a new family hobby.

This quote - for Pride month, because the first gay pride was a riot. And I thank the stars for that.

“We didn’t stop. We weren’t afraid. We were not going to be oppressed anymore!” - Sylvia Rivera


Peace to you and yours.
