I don't often peruse the comics section, but this is a reminder of how powerful & poignant they can be. #notfunny

Knitting. The Sword in the Stone. Big comfy couch. Tea and homemade food. My current bit of heaven. #simplejoys #selfcaresunday

This badass lady is getting #married today. •

I met her pretty much upon moving to NYC at the Fashion Institute of Technology nearly 13 years ago. I had no idea she would become like a sister to me. •

She met a man who knows how amazing she is and complements her so well. It is beautiful to witness them together. As you can see by this pic from the rehearsal dinner last night, she is a total #boss and a fierce friend. There are few I can say that about. It is my honor to stand up with them today and celebrate a love that is steadfast, patient, kind, and truly fights for the other. •

Cheers to you Nasya and Eric. 🥂💖🎉💍👰🏻🤵🏼#newprantil

Helping to haul & stack firewood this morning was one of the most satisfying things I’ve done in a while. And then getting to sit in front of a fireplace. #bliss #🔥 #🍂 #🙌🏽

Before I even got to work this morning the number of disheartening things I experienced and witnessed were overwhelming. And after twelve years, for the sake of saving my compassion & humanity, I have to get out of this city. •

Stepping out of the current, to be a spectator of the culture of fast and everyone for themselves, I’ve been horrified & repulsed. Every day is a battle to respond with kindness while being bombarded by apathy and selfishness. There’s a reason why explosive anger is rampant and I don’t want to stay long enough for my heart to harden & become bitter and callous. So sad.•

This city used to be filled with so much magic and wonder to me, but that’s pretty much dead aside from rare moments. I find myself often surrounded by the walking dead just going through the motions. I hope and pray for revelation and revival in this city. For radical acts of love, or even very simple acts of kindness to transform the culture to one that restores us to each other. To remember that we need others and belong to each other. And of the sanctity of each human life. Before it all just implodes.

I took a much needed Instagram break and saw and experienced all kinds of beautiful (& also difficult) things. Life continued on. Funny how sometimes it seems like if we don't post about something on social media it didn't really happen. I'm selective about what I share, especially as an introvert in NYC trying to retain what semblance of privacy I can, but also because I want to be more present to enjoy moments rather than needing to 'capture' them all the time. •

I like to share the things I'm passionate about, are authentic, add beauty or challenge the status quo. It's a fine balance. I'm not terribly concerned about 'likes' or external validation, but I'm grateful for the awesome people I've gotten to connect with (in REAL life) because of this platform & those loves I get to stay better in touch with. •

Every now and then I like to step back and analyze how I'm spending my time and if it's truly serving me or adding value. Sometimes I need to intentionally eliminate distractions, set new boundaries or address coping mechanisms. Since this is a season where lots of big things need to get done there's a lot of analyzing & introspection happening. Making the dream(s) happen. Being my own hero. #lifelessons #theexaminedlife #fall #nature #beauty #brooklyn #nyc #slowdown #digitaldetox #getshitdone #introvert #empower

🎶It's. About. To go. Down 🎶 Eating well has become part of my daily self care. (It took me years to get here) I like to do a bit extra on the weekends (cuz BRUNCH), take it slow, and experiment with my Saturday morning finds from the farmer's market.👩🏻‍🍳🍁🥑🥕🥗🍽 How are you caring for yourself today? •

Spinach & goat cheese omelette w/ herbs de Provence, shredded turnips & onions cooked in bacon fat, and some baby arugula w/ radish, avocado, dulse flakes & my favorite housemade creamy tahini dressing.

This may be my next knitting project if I don't just buy it from the @adarlingknitsshop. •

Some days the things that come out of men's mouths and the other seemingly inevitable bizarre encounters in #nyc are just too much. But I will continue on, enjoy today's sunshine and not let the bullshit set the tone for the rest of my day. Life's too short for that. And there's plenty more worthwhile things to spend my thoughts & energies on. #nyclife #inhershoes #enough #knittersofinstagram #powertochoose #bethechange #breatheinthegoodness

Seasonal glories at this morning's #greenmarket

Also, just watched @foodasmedicinethemovie on @amazonprime and was so impressed. One of the best health & food docs I've seen in a while. Check it out for some great info and inspo about transforming our nation's health through diet & lifestyle. Have you seen it?

I've been a bit obsessed with watermelon radishes lately. Their vibrant color is such a nice contrast with all the greens and I love the added punch they bring. I think they'd be good fermented too. 😋
Being diligent to shop seasonally at the farmer's market has brought an unexpected element of joy & savoring, as well as the creative challenges to learn how to prepare new foods. The discovery is a lot of fun too. And right now I'm finding a lot of wonderful new delights each week at the @evolutionaryorganics stand!
Having transparency in where my food comes from, reducing or eliminating packaging, maximizing nutrient content and quality are all of great importance so I'm grateful to have access to plenty of fantastic markets around the city each week. CSAs are also great options, but I just really enjoy going through the market myself & taking everything in.
Have you discovered or experimented with any new foods recently?
