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.
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
greens greens greens. mmmm.
lovely leeks & onions being carmelized for soup.
Mouth bursting yumminess. Green Soup with Mushrooms recipe from the vegetarian cook book Love Soup by Anna Thomas (sent to me by my dear @sarcomical). Topped with a dash of olive oil, sheep feta and a lemon-thyme leaf from my garden. YUM. #lovesoup
there are those days that feel longer than usual, like last night, when i hoped he would fall asleep so that i can have some space and then he tells me he's not ready to go upstairs and wants to cuddle with me on the couch and as he reaches his hands towards me, i breathed into this precious moment and quieted my mind to all these wants or desires to be somewhere else. and i connect; connect to him knowing there will be a day he will not ask or perhaps need this of me and as he lays on my chest and our breathing falls in unison, i am aware that i really don't want to be anywhere else. and this peace, this being present, gently puts me to sleep, us to sleep. #bepresent #chooseconnection #AnnapurnaMother
so he shakes his leg when he stands still playing guitar. the best.
village marching band. ☺️

a private concert at #faecottage with @mistymountaingirl playing my very favorite instrument. #blessed
a chilly wind by our bay caused for cuddles. and pajama bottoms on his head because that's how he likes it.
even just five minutes alone before they wake is enough to cultivate some grounding of self and checking in with my feelings... which is needed so deeply for my day. #annapurnamother
newly cleared out space. i think may drink my morning coffee here. #sacredspace #faecottage
sometimes i get this when he catches me trying to sneak a photo.
