Crying every night is not a weakness. Do you think the skies are weak when they weep and cut you skin and when they flood entire cities and swell the veins of the Earth? The power of tears is the mightiest sign of your true strength, it marks a cleansing. After every rain there is growth, no exception! Though you only cry to put out the fire that burns you, growth will come by nature. Your heart is thunder, and the pulse - a hammer of your spirit. Rejoice in its magnificence.

Oh i do love this.

Recommended listen.  Been wanting to share some more personal likings and things I use on a regular basis. Gettin up close and personal here, friends (and there are a handful of new followers, too! Hello, all. Thanks for the follows) I’ll try and keep you entertained!

Spent the afternoon, aside from saving my aunt’s pig, picking up some new supplies for ideas in my Etsy Shop, and launching the Facebook page for my shop as well! And I’ll now spend the remainder of my day off listening to pleasant tunes like this one while hashing out said new ideas for said shop. A day in the life, folks. Ones like these are the most ideal.

What a morning!
My aunt has been searching for a new home for her mini pot belly pig, Ziggy. Seeing as she lives in Lititz, PA, the pickins for suitable homes that wouldn’t result in him laying in parts on a dinner plate are slim.
I volunteered through my school at an organic farm/animal rescue my senior year of college, and have stayed in contact with the owner of the farm since. You won’t find a more kickass woman anywhere else in the world—making big movements in Virginia’s political stances on farms, running her own 200 acre property, saving neglected or near death farm animals, harvesting her own plentiful crops, and all the while she looks like she could be on the runway. Who looks fabulous while farming? Martha. Dreads, diamond wedding rings, couldn’t pull off flannel more elegantly. She is among my heroes.
Anyway, messaged her about my aunt’s predicament and she is thrilled to take Z! Called my aunt, who was in line at the grocery store, and she cried. So pleased at how easily this all came together and happy to use a connection to help both parties involved.
Now we get to plan when we’ll travel down to Paris, VA, to take Zig to his new home! I am so adamant about going it’s not even funny. Yay. Ya yayayy.

P.S. this picture of honey is relevant to this post because the farm, besides limousine cows, goats, sheeps, llamas, el pacas, chickens, ducks, turkeys, pigs, and EMUS, has a large honey bee hive that is well protected and cared for.  Martha sells honey by the jar and other products, like beeswax candles, at her produce stand. It’s the best!

Would so love to be able to pull of something as wildly funky as this, and depending on their perception of me some have said I totally can, but

I totally cannot. Now what?
