Hello! Crazy Butterfly Lady here. Remember me? You probably thought I was finished after my last butterfly spiel. Nope, not so much! 😬

Our last butterfly emerged from his chrysalis last night, and as you can see, he is stunning. (Yep, this is how I talk about insects now. “STUNNING." 🙄) He hung out with me all morning - just flitting about the house while I had a conversation with one of my longtime inspirations, Zen Buddhist teacher Cheri Huber, for an upcoming podcast. Afterwards, it was time to let him fly away while I (once again) reveled in this beautiful, frustrating, crazy gift we’ve been given called life. ❤️

(I promise no more insect stories until next season.)

Here’s a photo of a cute bug on my windshield. That’s all I have for you today because the news that the Trump administration is taking direct aim at birth control coverage for 62 million women has me about ready to explode. So, wait..women shouldn’t be having abortions but they *also* shouldn’t have access to birth control? OH PLEASE EDUCATE ME ON HOW THAT WORKS, PRAY TELL. You know, there’s been a lot of talk about racism during this administration (as there obviously should be), but people are absolutely batshit if they don’t see that this is also one of the most sexist, anti-woman administrations in recent history. What kind of fresh hell are we living in right now?
So, yeah. Cute bug on a windshield.

Listen, I’m looking for goodness wherever I can find it, so today I will share the story of this butterfly. A few weeks ago, Malou brought home some caterpillars. They were cute...I guess, I mean, they were caterpillars devouring some fresh parsley from our friend’s garden and I figured they would die soon, so you know, whatever. Caterpillars. Meh.

Malou had just finished studying butterflies at school and seemed to think they might morph into butterflies, so while patting her back and rolling my eyes said, “Okay honey! Can’t wait for those butterflies!” Days passed and all I noticed was a lot of poop on the bottom of our makeshift cardboard box with a plastic wrap top poked with a fork. (We're so profesh, don’t be jelly.) ⠀
A few days later, they stopped moving. They were stuck to the side of the box. Caterpillar funeral. The next morning I looked into the box only to see weird brown things. I called Malou over and softly broke the news that they had died because they were all dried out and brown, to which Malou replied, “MOM THOSE ARE CHRYSALIDES (the plural for chrysalis, you guys I am now a butterfly expert duh). THEY'RE GOING TO BE BUTTERFLIES!” ⠀
Shit got really serious at that point. The minute I realized there was metamorphosis going down in our home, I was ALL IN, PEOPLE. Crazy Butterfly Lady. I researched what kind of they were (Swallowtails!), relocated a chrysalis that was in a precarious spot in the box, and generally became fully emotionally invested.

Yesterday afternoon, in my peripheral vision, I noticed something large and black on my curtains. I was scared to look. Bat? (Because a bat chilling in my living room at 2pm is a totally rational thought for me to have.) ⠀
Nope. Black Swallowtail. Huge. Almost the size of my palm. Quietly resting on my living room curtain. I was overcome with happiness. My heart swelled. I took 49 photos to show the kids after school. I gently removed it from the curtain and took it outside where it flew away. Yep, I cried. (Um, it’s obviously been an emotional week.) ⠀
Moral of the long-winded-crazy-butterfly-lady story. There is still so much beauty in this world. You just need to continue looking for it. ❤️

About last night. ❤️🎸 @garyclarkjr
I woke up wanting to share this photo from last night before hearing about the events in Las Vegas. To think so many innocent people were doing the exact same thing I was doing last night...enjoying a concert. I'm so heartbroken. So disgusted. I don't know what else to say right now.

Listen, I'm soooo not a fan of humblebrags. (The phrase "I am so humbled..." usually makes my eyes roll back into my head so hard it hurts.) But you guys? To wake up and see @selfiepodcast ranked #81 out of all podcasts on iTunes?! And #5 in the health category? I am not only humbled, I am PUMPED. 🙌🏻💃🏻 Thank you guys so much for supporting us - Kristen and I have worked on this project for a really long time, so this is extra special to us. ❤️
