My rock. Often he keeps me together when I’m having lots of feelings and lots of doubt. It’s hard being such an emotional person and contributing to a relationship. Vinny makes it okay for me to be that and his heart is so grand that he doesn’t make me feel guilty for needing support. We are lucky 💙 #chenteychely #loml #anxietysupport #mentalhealthsupport

Feliz Día de la Independencia 🇲🇽 Mexico lindo y querido ❤️ remember, we didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us! #fiestaspatrias #proudmexicana #knowyourroots

Change is good. When there are things you can’t control, take control. Thank you @beauty_botanica for helping cleanse my being by taking away the old parts of me. #newhairwhodis #shorthairdontcare #changeisgoodforthesoul

Since yesterday I have been repotting and fitting in all my new plants that have been propagated. Some succulents had to be given new homes so they could expand and get fertilized with ash, coffee, and egg shells that we have been mixing up. Got two new indoor plants today and everyone got to meet for our Sunday bath time 🌞🌵🌱🌾💚 #plantlady #succulentgarden #indoorplants #urbangarden #sansevieriasunday #peacelily #rubberplant #encinalnursery #girlswhoplant

Something I have been trying to integrate into my after school program is art education. While still figuring out the kinks of bringing this in without training staff first was a little tricky. Thank goodness for resources like @deepspacesparkle! As a new sparkler member I am excited to have started the year with making our own cave paintings in program! Thanks for the support Patty 🎨 #arteducation #deepspacesparkle #caveart #artaccess #saveafterschool

We barely made it out! Luckily @lei_lady_lei had her wits about her and suggested we all leave immediately. It was a lovely day, until it wasn’t. Take care of our land and stay safe ✨ #yuba #emeraldpool #emigrantgap #wildfire #norcalfires #norcal

Propagation station stays winning! Some of the leaves I pulled didn’t make it but I am learning how to make them as successful as possible. There are some I placed in water to grow their own roots and then placed them in pots to continue growing! #propagationstation #succulents #urbangardening #echeveria

There are only a few days left to view my work @urbanuniversityoakland!! It has been such a pleasure and joy to have partnered with Tracey! She puts in so much love and time into her community; helping families thrive in Oakland. To allow me space to show such fierce mujeres alongside her and the mothers she supports is such an honor. I hope everyone who was learning about las mujeres de Lxs Autodefensas and adelitas of the Mexican Revolution see their privilege differently. That they understand families migrate to new lands so they don’t have to hold a gun to raise and defend their familias.
I have also come to terms that my work will not sell (yet) because people are still having a hard time seeing womxn and femme identifying people hold guns. We are often the people who are on the other end.
