If you've been around here for a while, you know that I have a gentle heart and nothing means more to me than my family. More than anything, I believe in the power of empathy, compassion, and love. I also believe that people come before politics, and trauma leaves lifelong scars. If you, too, are feeling heartbroken and wanting to help out the children who are separated from their parents at the border, I wanted to share this charity option. Donations are divided between 13 charities who are on the ground now, helping kids in real time. This isn't about politics. It's about people. Lead with love, friends. Now more than ever. Let's speak up, show up, and generate change for the better. The world needs us right now, gentle hearts and all. https://secure.actblue.com/donate/kidsattheborder

I am humbled and honored by the people who are showing up to help out and cheer me on with Herbal Adventures. Amanda Soule has generously contributed a beautiful forward for the book; and my inspirations and mentors Sam Thayer, Ben Hewitt, and Rosemary Gladstar (!) have each shared a beautiful endorsement–each one making me cry a bit more than the last. My heart just keeps blowing up! December can't come soon enough. #herbaladventures @soulemama @lazymillhillfarm

Friends. . After Charlie died I wasn’t ready to get another dog to be my BFF. As it turned out, he was here all along. . So glad this guy is spending his livestock guard dog retirement as our pal.
