I feel like lately I’m so much more aware of my sweet girls eyes on me. So much of who she is and will become as she gets older will be molded by how she sees me act, what she hears me say and how hard she sees me work. I want her to always handle herself with grace, love Jesus and work hard, but mostly I just want her to know that she can accomplish anything she wants with her life and we will be there to love and support her along the way. But, can we just for a second talk about how much mama pressure that is to make sure I guide her right? I’m always so nervous about making mistakes 🙈
I was in full photo editing mode all weekend for my book (deadline fast approaching 😱) and came across this little shop from Oak Bluffs. So darn cute! And it is making me crave summer. Sorry winter - you don’t hold a candle to summer! I also noticed the message in the window. Coincidence that the Women’s March was this weekend? I think not! #oakbluffs

1. You always have power. It might not be to the extent that you wish, but you are never completely without a move on the board.
2. You can always say NO.
3. You can always say YES.

I wanted to pay tribute to a very influential human being in the cooking industry. Chef Paul Bocuse passed away yesterday leaving behind a legacy that will go on as long as humans keep cooking.
Cheers to 91 🥂and to a beautiful life ✨
Brass, copper and water oak. These parts have sat independently in different areas of the shop for some time. We were recently testing a new burner on some scrap brass to see if we had the settings right when the catalyst came to light. The smallest hammer blow, the subtle change in form can spark a whirlwind of creativity. Ahh, grab this strainer from here, scramble through the limb pile there, cut from the brass tube up there and get to work. We’re getting closer and the feeling is getting stronger.

This is Joe. He's our CFO: Chief Fire Officer. He's also a chocolatier, farmer, gold miner (with a heart of gold) and the hardest working man we know. At our open fire events, he is absolutely indispensable. Fire is a living thing that must be constantly fed, tweaked and tamed, and nobody fire dances like Joe. We can't imagine anyone else we'd want to have on a desert island--or on our team. @j_wookie , we love you brother. Thank you for all that you do and are. 🙏🏼💛#tournantfamily#jwookie#cfo#danceswithfire --

This is what beauty looks like: women who say "yes" to life; women who show up for their fellow sisters; women who dig in and go deep, even if it's messy and vulnerable and complicated; women who live in the tension of a world full of pain and suffering AND a universe full of wonder and mystery. I am truly blessed to live in community with so many extravagant souls. @arkitektwomen

what a beautiful world it would be if people had hearts like dogs 💙
There is still time for a mom to dream after having a baby. Maybe not as much time, but things are shifted and there can be time for creativity. I’ve struggled with the fact that I haven’t kept up with my lifestyle & healthy recipe blog since having Silas. I knew it would take time & I gave myself as much time as I needed - raising a little human is a lot of work & it takes intentionality. I’m feeling inspired to write & create again. Last week my sweet new friend @jacquelinesarahh & I got together, created, & shot a beautiful smoothie bowl. I’m going to start creating recipes for you guys. Recipes that are flavorful yet simple and ones that the whole family can enjoy. Comment below for any recipe ideas that you think would be interesting.
When Ballet and Ballroom meet....FIERCE. 💋In just 5 days, a show we’ve all been working incredibly hard on will finally be here! @travis_stancil has produced an incredible touring show “Rhythm” as well as Dancing With the Burke Stars, and put them into a 2-night event. 🌟 We have everything from Ballet, to Ballroom, Hip-Hop, Contemporary, Theatre...it’s going to be amazing.

More regular eating here. A recent lunch at home. Brown rice, kimchi, crispy fried egg and fried firm tofu that needed eating and way more Sriracha than appears in this photo. Looks a bit like an egg that’s come to a sticky end, which it did, actually. And some green tea, not my usual drop (I’m embarrassingly Western when it comes to tea preferences), but will happily drink and enjoy it when the occasion demands. I’m sure, in fact positive, it was the *wrong* kind of green tea, but anyhow, it’s my lunch.
Writing this from bed this morning, a place from which I have no desire to decamp. I’m still technically on holidays, although am trying to fill my days productively with plotting and planning, all manner of food obsessing, composing future blog posts in my head, and trying to get my head around the terrifying idea of being self-employed in some capacity or other. Have not been very successful at a schedule yet, but I have achieved one thing already this year - I’ve managed to keep a journal fairly consistently thus far, something I’ve never been able to do, but have always wanted to. The game changer is doing it in the morning before the day gets away on you. This was inspired by the free slow morning routine generously offered by @local_milk - a truly inspiring woman, which you will know already if you follow her, and if you don’t, you must, immediately. So thank you for the kick up the pants. Writing is something that both pulls at and scares me. But having an outlet that has no audience whatsoever is very freeing, even if it is often just mundane waffle. It’s having the practice of it that’s the main thing. .
My favorite healthy treat that satisfies all of my ice cream cravings is this peanut butter banana smoothie 🍌🙈 I freeze almond milk in ice cube trays and the consistency when blended is just like ice cream! 👌🏼#blogarchives#healthytreats#smoothie

Had an amazing brunch to start our trip. Beer & Eggs Benedict go very well together.
Super nummy oatmeal skillet👅 I’ve been trying to brainstorm ideas for my caste iron pan and got sooo excited when I saw this yummy oatmeal breaky by @eatingwith_em ! I combined about 3/4 cup of oatmeal, a banana and a half mushed, 1/4 cup of almond milk and some brown sugar and then baked it at 350 for 10 ish min! Topped with more nanas and peanut butter, sooo good! 🥜🍌🥜🍌

Spent the afternoon with family, celebrating my little sister’s birthday. Those types of cozy family moments are the best! And cake doesn’t hurt either.
Do what makes you happy. Whatever that is. Take a hike, lunch with a friend, paint, surf, bike, play music, draw, read, cook, do a flatlay after the farmers market (ahem) go to yoga- I just have to not try to do that all in one day!

Have you ever heard of Korean Pizza Dumplings? Well @jeaniusnyc has, and these are from @mokbar_nyc where we ate the other night! 👉remember to tag your photos to be featured!
Longing to be back in bed at @churchdesartistes , Kingston’s best kept secret. When you enter, the smell of clean laundry fills the air while you wander from room to room of 30’ tall ceilings, vintage lace canopy beds, and a rustic kitchen whose copper pots, wrought iron stove, and layered wares transport you straight to northern France. This special place captured our hearts when we celebrated the launch of And North in their stone courtyard four years ago. We are always looking forward to our next visit where we can be sure a brimming cup of tea will be waiting for us by the fire. | Photo by @nickattheshop#andnorthstays

“Home is the nicest word there is.” - Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Shrouded in mystery while slowly drying. Working on new shapes, using new clays and will eventually explore new glazes. I will be wood firing again this spring with a group of women....very excited! I have twice as much space to fill as last year. This means nonstop making over the next several months!
