Linden leaf + flowers // my favorite herbs for opening + soothing the heart. When is the last time you said: “I am SO happy for you” (like you really meant it)? I highly recommend test driving these 6 very special words. Have the courage to be generous. And, trust that you’re finding your way too. 💚 : : : #linden #limeflower #tilia #tea #tealovers #herbalife #herbalmedicine #plantmedicine #forage #heart #courage #love #gentle #soft #lightworker #massagetherapy #mindfulness #heartchakra #reiki #folklore #selflove #selfcare #heal #healing #healyourlife #sacredritual #appalachian #appstate #boone #wnc

Close call this evening, folks. 🙈Naomi went to check on the calf and wait for her daddy to get home. When I realized he would be late and it was getting dark, I went down to get her so I could start dinner. I found her crying beside the road. "He's gone!" she wailed. I would like to say I stayed calm but I was a mess. He had slipped out of a crack in the barn gate leaving Sparkle still inside. He was nowhere. Sixty-five acres all around us and I didn't know where to start. "Clementine's been mooing up there on the hill the whole time I've been here. Maybe she knows something," she said. Sure enough, that sweet angel cow was looking right at us and hollering like she knew where he was. So I climbed the hill and would you believe it? There he was curled up under a camouflaged thicket with Clementine standing guard over him. I would have never seen him. I had Brent on the phone so he told me to stick my fingers in his mouth to make sure it was warm. It was! Whew! So I went and dragged Sparkle up the hill to him and by then Brent came and got the calf the rest of the way to his mama. What an adventure. They don't always end happy out here, friends. I'm glad this one did. ❤️ (Clementine is on the right in the pic, just mooing it up. Good girl, Clementine.)

✨Where the magic happens✨We had never even thought about making jewelry before. I never felt like it was my thing. Then we had been pressing flowers from our garden and that we collected in nature and I thought it would be fun for Ro to put them in some jewelry. He liked to bake because he enjoyed measuring and mixing, which made me think he’d like working with resin. We had no idea what we were doing. I didn’t know what kinds of findings to order or which resin to try, we just looked online and ordered what we thought was cool, hoping it would work. . . Five months later we were at a pop-up with our one little suitcase of jewelry, right next to another jewelry designer with three huge tables worth of stuff. It was intimidating, especially when I saw her pull out resin pieces. I tried to make small talk but she wasn’t into it, which made me feel more insecure. But, I always have Ro so I knew we’d have fun anyway. As the night wore on, I felt almost embarrassed that we were selling so much more than she was. Then the local reporter covering the event came by to speak to us and walked right by her without a word. I still cringe when I think about it. At the end of the night, she came up and apologized for her earlier behavior—and ended up asking us how we made our pieces because she had never been able to do anything like that in the five years she’d been working with resin. Then I knew we were onto something. . . Now, a year to the day after we mixed resin for the first time, we have a fully-stocked jewelry studio, a fiercely loyal following, and a gorgeous little pop-up shop display. I’m pretty proud of us! . . Speaking of pop-ups, our first one of the year is less than a month away. Sooooo, I should probably stop typing and get back to making. Big love, dear gypsies! 🔮🎩

Today’s Reading: Matthew 6 |A thought from J.C. Ryle| “Let us learn from our Lord’s instruction about fasting, the great importance of cheerfulness in our religion. Those words ‘anoint thy head and wash thy face’ are full of deep meaning. They should teach us to aim at letting men see we find that Christianity makes us happy. Never let us forget that there is not religion in looking melancholy and gloomy. Are we dissatisfied with Christ’s wages and Christ’s service? Surely not! Then let us not look as if we were.”

Faithful stewards trying to save us all and release the Mother Serpent from her icy #Appalachian slumber or just a coupla pals looking to hook a perch or two? Regardless, I’d rather spend time on a lake thinking about God than time in church thinking about fishing, and this is the only type of drilling that should ever occur in a State (or National) Park. #Nature #IceFishing #SaveOurParks #SaveThePlanet
