Welcome! I’m Denise—a gentle fae artist living with my beloved husband and son in the wilds of the most Northern part of Washington.
my storytelling buddy.
I had to take a picture of this. #tweetsrestaurant #tweetsedison
grateful this restaurant offers a basketful of vintage blocks and homemade dollhouse furniture for the wee ones (and big ones too). #tweetsrestaurant #tweetsedison
sharing a table with people I don't know is such an interesting and mostly magical experience. #tweetsrestaurant #anotherlandscape
waiting for our food and sharing dessert first. #tweetsrestaurant
this restaurant is so very special to us...and many others. #tweetsrestaurant
nourishment for a play date.
For 20 years I've had a vision of the perfect bike for me :: It was vintage style, blue, wide seat and a basket. I knew it would come to me at the right time, so I didn't seek it out. Today my boys and I went to an adorable artsy town 30 minutes away and THIS was right in front of a boutique. I thought it was a prop but the closer I got, I saw a tag. Cedar urged me to sit on it while my husband went inside. I had no idea he was talking to the owner about it and they peeked around the front door to see it fit me just right. I went inside and saw he was buying something and when I asked what he found, he said "your bike" with a big smile on his face. My hands went to my mouth as the beautiful owner told me that this bike has been here for 6 months and that she wanted it but it was way too small for her and every customer that wanted it, was too small for them. She said she's been waiting for the right person to own this bike and then said "it's so you". I was like a little girl, teary and full of excitement. I rode it back to our car. It needs a wee bit of fixin' but not much! I feel like I am dreaming. #blessed #faelovestories #manifestyourdreams
...this is the first time he was the one to grab the phone and take a photo of us and of course he was the one to capture my smiley-wrinkle-nose my close friends have told me about but I never see. this was taken yesterday when we three went to a hardware store and my husband was pushing us on a huge flatbed cart and between cedar's sensory meltdowns he had all day. i am grateful he captured this moment of connection as the remainder of the day was full of me trying to connect when it was difficult to. it's been a long time since we've had a day like this but as achy as they are, it draws us even closer because being fully present with him, holding space for him, is all we can do to keep breathing. #lifewithspd #hsp #familyofsensitives #sensorymeltdowns
so this little one decided to come through our front door. #houseguest
"mom, come on."
played with some different molds today for some cashew butter and chocolate fat bombs. melty in your mouth yum.
after some achy conversation in my head this morning about how yucky my arms look in tank tops, i decided to look at myself and focus on something i do love. and that is my eyes. i do love my eyes and how expressive they are. #selflove #affirmations
...and now my home is drenched in the scent of orange blossoms thanks to a sweet surprise on my doorstep. #neighborhoodelves #faecottage
