rootsandcrownspdx: Today is Tu B’shvat! A holiday for

Today is Tu B’shvat! A holiday for the Trees. The sources of sustenance. The givers of fine fragrance. Fresh air. Wood to build from, wood to offer in fire and smoke*. Homes for the animals. Shelter from the rain. Teachers of root systems. Lessons on how to dance, how to sway...how to be flexible in the winds. I love that in Hebrew, the root for the word for “tree” is the same as the root for the word “advice.” Let’s remember and celebrate that our guides are all around us... *Reminder to partake in smoke medicine that aligns with your values. There are so many plants (ideally fallen and/or local, like the cedar bundle here!) that can be used for smoke offerings, and they last a good while!

"Teach the children. We don't matter so much, but they do. Show them daisies and the pale hepatica. Teach them the taste of sassafras and wintergreen. The lives of the blue sailors, mallow, sunbursts, the moccasin flowers. The frisky ones- inkberry, lamb's-quarters, blueberries. And the aromatic ones- rosemary, oregano. Give them peppermint to put in their pockets as they go to school. Give them the fields and the Woods and the possibility of the world salvaged from the lords of profit. Stand them in the stream, head upstream, rejoice as they learn to love this green space they live in, its sticks and leaves and then the silent, beautiful blossoms. Attention is the beginning of devotion." -Mary Oliver, Rest In Peace, for your words are forever Powerful...thank you for the rapture ✨

When the ink etched in your flesh, stones adorning your limbs, boots walking your feet, and bristles sweeping your floor...are all part of the craft.

rootsandcrownspdx: One year ago today, I sat across from @

One year ago today, I sat across from in a coffee shop and she posed the notion of us opening a space together. It wasn't going to be a shop per-se, but a shared studio to house our complimentary businesses. Soooo much has unraveled and evolved since that day, and is just as magical of a realization of our excited pipe-dream talks as I could have imagined...and more. Somehow within all this, I've gotten engaged to , we remodeled our basement, adopted a puppy, grieved losses, celebrated victories...AND I sent out thousands of parcels to double the amount of homes as last year. My eyes have been opened to new levels of accountability and my work to balance the need to DO SOMETHING while also enjoying LIFE. Everything is everything, and though there are definitely things that I would have thought would be finished by now that are not, there are many other things I could have never have foreseen that are here and completed and wonderful. As a Jewish witch, my new year is really in early autumn, but I always have felt fortunate to have two new year situations in the span of about 3 months. It's nice to have the quarter year check-in to see how I've been doing with my intentions- especially since the months leading up to the secular new year are so busy for a small business. Standing in our darkened, quiet shop today, surrounded by the last few orders to be sent out in 2018, buttoning up the last 2018 donations and lining up new inventory on shelves...I want to say this: My gratitude expands every time I pause and acknowledge linear time- with all that it reminds me I've come from. And so I bless us all in this reawakening, re-embracing, renewing. This continued living and thriving and loving one-another. In this moment, and onward. ✨🌿🕯

This 95.5 year old is a jewel on this planet. Full of wit and wisdom and a heart of gold. Lucky that my babe has her as a Gma, and that I get to have her by association. 🌸💗🌸

rootsandcrownspdx: This year was colorful. Full of ritual baths

This year was colorful. Full of ritual baths and botanical head wreaths. The year my person asked me to REALLY be my person. A year of pride. A year of resistance as love in action. The year and I opened our place of magic. A colorful year of rising to meet challenges and and bringing dreams to life. Thank you all for following along and being part of it! #2018
