eclipse cone ingredients were sold out this afternoon 😭🍦 but, thankfully was able to devour this caramel corn sundae cone instead 🖤

walked out the back door this morning 🌙🌙🌙🌙 #eclipsed

🌿recently, home is a reminder of my static emotional life- when not distracted by overworking. moving to portland has emphasized a solitary existence; in addition to being 30 without someone to rely on. [still waiting on prayers] thankful for moments with interaction/volunteering, but noticing an unfulfilled feeling most days regardless. waiting on time to pass, counting days + remembering all the things missing that I once had.

✨marigold frock made from #repurposedtextiles, perfect for when autumn leaves begin to fall. layer-able garments for transitional weather will be at the #pdx urban air market [sept 2nd].

farmers market bounty, thanks to #udanfarm ✨ golden plums + baby squashes.

simple & sweet camisole. haven't made many of these since their debut in 2010-- but planning for a few to be at urban air market in a few weeks 〰

collared back view 〰 light blue blouse that will be available at the portland @urbanairmarket on september 2nd! this will be my last summer market before holiday time. will be slightly less present as grad school takes ownership of my life again-- but! items are available at Backtalk pdx, plus I'm planning on a web shop update for september. 💗

mt. hood from larch mountain, a place to offer cherries & share lighthearted conversations with new acquaintances 〰 having difficulty knowing how I'm "supposed" act this week, according to aggressive posts towards those not discussing politics. rarely have I found words to describe my feelings correctly, since being a child. so with that, I don't think it's only statements that will make things better, but kindness and actions motivating fairness/positivity. silence on social media doesn't necessarily dictate the entirety of involvement in someone's reality. 💙

gravel road blackberry magic 🌿 thanked the plants for allowing their relocation out of nature and into our possession. learned names, history, smells & tastes of the outdoors with my wonderful new friend. so great to have met someone even more excited/knowledgeable about botany than myself! forever learning.

lightweight frock made from #reclaimedtextiles 〰 a personal favorite.

🥒made pickles for the first time-- not gonna lie feeling pretty proud. japanese cucumber, red onion, rice vinegar, sesame, dill, crushed red pepper.

always making too much food for one person, but it is what it is 〰 anyone else love trader joe's? used their gluten free pancake mix, mixed with strawberries & gf pecan praline granola-- topped the seven pancakes with honey! #brunchforone #🍓 #🥞 #🍯
