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.

33 years of truer than true friendship with a woman that defines loyalty and trust to my tender heart. Whether she's changing a diaper or speaking on stage at a world conference, she's always true to herself, walks her talk with a balance of humility and fire and inspires all who are blessed to be near her. Walking away from today feeling like I can fly because that's one of her gifts: seeing people and reflecting their wholeness and beauty back to them. 🙏🏼
yesterday i wanted to curl up in a ball from over stimulation. today my oldest childhood friend is in town and we are having a girly date!!! i woke feeling the life of this move through me. we need our girls. and we need partners that support this. feeling deeply blessed and not taking this rare kind of day for granted! @lethasandison
I love, adore full moons but sometimes I am left feeling very raw during them. This blue moon especially. Just a few minutes ago my son climbed into the inside of our nook bench because he too is feeling the world is overwhelming right now. I showed a dear friend a picture of him in the bench and said I wish I could fit in there. And she said "what about a blanket fort?" She's building one for herself too. So I'll be in here much of the night.
After a long afternoon of appointments at the Seattle Children's Autism Center, he got to pick out a toy. Out of all the stuffed animals, he chose this camera because "I'm an artist", he said. Meet Camery! #landofnod
Our little filmmaker has some ideas and we're goin' with it. #greenscreen #makingmovies
nourishment :: filling out paperwork :: listening to podcast by buddhist, tara brach :: setting intentions :: sitting with feelings and finding the joy and possibility in them :: finding fear too :: noticing that joy and possibility give me courage :: allowing that to guide my thoughts and choices for today :: i believe
finding beauty in such simplicity these days.
i have a very special connection to my neighbor's kitty. she's home alone quite a bit and she often calls out to me from our back steps when she hears me in the kitchen. those back steps are a place I go to breathe, to cry, to pray...and she often sits near me through it all.
