  • While sitting on the banks of the Blanco yesterday after a refreshing swim in the river, I drew a card from my favorite Native Spirit deck from Denise Linn. I always make a point to have a little ritual in nature on my birthday and before I drew this card, I burned some Palo Santo and did a little energy clearing. I carefully drew the card that felt the most energized for me and asked for my message for the year. This one, Tracker, is so perfect as it’s all about being single pointed and focusing on what’s most important even if that means other things fall away. Having a Gemini rising, I would say it’s my blessing curse as I have so many interests which’s makes life so fascinating but also keeps me from going as deep as I wish in areas that are important to me. And now to get clear on what is the single thing I really wish to focus my energy on this next year? #tracker #nature #river #blancoriver #nativespirit #deniselinn #birthdaycontemplations #gratefulforwater #summer #fire #paintingwatercolors #hangingbytheriver #goodfood #massage #love
  • Just pulled these sun ripened beauties off the vine. The color is nothing I’ve ever seen in a store! So vibrant and gorgeous. It definitely takes effort to grow your own food but it’s so worth it to have such high vibing life force goodness! And now...to eat them! #homegrowntomatoes #organic #gardening #eatingfresh #realfood #texasheat #naturalgardener #geogrowers #goodliving #awesomecompost #delicious #nutrientdense #paleo #keto #westonprice #yummy
  • Leek flowers....I am always amazed at what plants create that you never see if you don’t grow your own food. For example, bok choy grows this one gorgeous little purple flower before it goes to seed. These leeks that have been in the ground since winter and going out with a bang with these stunning silver flowers. My Swiss chard is flowering with this 6 foot tall shoot. Only part of the delight is in eating the fruits of my labor. The other is in watching, observing and witnessing the magic of it all. #spring #garden #leeks #goingtoseed #floweringonion #organic #geogrowers #nutrientdense #realfood #fresh #beauty #bees #naturalgardener #gratefulforspring
  • So excited these beauties appeared everywhere on my land just recently. Spring is heaven here in the Texas Hill Country. So grateful for the abundance that nature pours forth. It is a true feast for the eyes! #wildflowers #grateful #feastfortheeyes #nature #color #abundance #sunset #hillcountry
  • We had quite the huge rain storm in the Texas Hill Country this morning. A thousand lightening strikes in one hour! I have fond memories of watching the rain with my dad when I was a kid. He would open up all the windows and let that fine rain scent come in. I didn’t know until I lived in other places that not everywhere has giant rain storms with thunder and lightening. Grateful for the storm and for a warm, safe place to be in it! #texasstorms #lightening #thunder #rain #gratefulfortherain #springshowersbringmayflowers #happygarden
  • Can anybody guess what these white clouds of culinary bliss are that are about to go into the oven? I’ll give you a hint. They melt in your mouth after being cooked for just a bit and yielded me a whole pint of awesome rendered fat to cook with. Guesses anyone? #meltinyourmouth #heavenlybites #satisfiedforhours #healingfats #nourished #richinvitd #pastureraised #locallyfarmed #texasraised #delicious
  • I have always said I am not an artist but I think that’s not true. I am a food artist. My art delights the senses and taste and nourishes, it just doesn’t stick around long. I served this dessert last night at a dinner party I cooked for for 7 cool ladies. They were all CEO’s. The conversation was very interesting. My Key Lime Pie never fails me. Did you know regular key lime pie is made with sweetened condensed milk which is one of the most dead and horrible products you can ever put in your body? This recipe is made only with wholesome ingredients and its base is avocado. Recipe on www.thebarefootcook.com #keylimepie #thebest #ever #foodart #myartgetseaten #nourish #delight #makehappy
