Yesterday, somewhere far.

Happy birthday to one of the best I know. It’s been such an honor to get to share so much laughter and many tears in the some of the most incredible corners of the world with you. When we met, we had no idea we’d build such a fulfilling business together, but even better, such a solid sisterhood. Through good times and hardships, dance parties in too many countries to count, ice cream nights in bed, and ending up in the hospital with malaria at the same time. The memories are too vast to count and your unconditional character always speaks. I am one of the many people who are grateful to call you family and look forward to the many more memories ahead. Here’s to you Nic Grif, and another wild spin around the sun!✨

Silence is so accurate. - Mark Rothko

Sometimes the desire to be lost again, as long ago, comes over me like a vapor. With growth into adulthood, responsibilities claimed me, so many heavy coats. I didn’t choose them, I don’t fault them, but it took time to reject them. Now in the spring I kneel, I put my face into the packets of violets, the dampness, the freshness, the sense of ever-ness. May I be the tiniest nail in the house of the universe, tiny but useful. May I stay forever in the stream. May I look down upon the windflower and the bull thistle and the coreopsis with the greatest respect. -Mary Oliver

Here’s to a slow weekend on the horizon

Patiently awaiting summer solstice.🌼

Preservation of craft, a necessity for the heart of our future.

The people you meet along the way.✨
