Happy Pride Month! Whether you identify as LGBTQ or not, it’s more important than ever to speak up, stand up for and celebrate this community. This New York Times article highlights some great ways to participate in Pride Month, from festival and parades to exhibitions, talks and movie screenings. I encourage you to seek out related events and activities in your own community. Love is love!
I will be spending the rest of this week at Spirit Weavers, a workshop-based women’s gathering that’s always an inspirational retreat for me. I love to spend this time connecting with other women and nature, refueling and recharging me for the year ahead.
This New York Times article poses the question: What if Instagram got rid of likes? Though I love how the platform gives me a space to connect with my followers, discover and gather inspiration, it’s so important to recognize the mental health issues it can bring up for a lot of people. What do you think of an Instagram without popularity metrics?
I feel re-energized from gardening and communing with nature in my backyard this past weekend. You don’t have to have a ton of land to grow herbs + plants; this Healthyish article provides a great jumping point for starting your own urban garden.
Can’t get over this gorgeous Manu Torres centerpiece at this past week’s Broccoli magazine event. The women-run magazine has created such a colorful and diverse vibe, and it was so fun to see that aesthetic come to life through their event.
Last week I spent an incredible few days with girlfriends an hour outside of Portland at the River Cabaan. Highly recommend!
