the love list

Isn't it funny how back to school season feels like back to school season, if you're not a student or a teacher?

It's back to school season.

It's also Friday, which means it's time for the love list.

I went on a road trip with my parents this week to Hopkinsville.

We stayed at Pennyrile State Park, which was beautiful and peaceful. I love State Parks and National Parks and this one is particularly sweet. The flowers around the lodge were so well-kept and attracted a lot of large colorful butterflies who followed me around and fluttered in little dances around me.

I do love a butterfly blessing!

We visited Edgar Cayce's grave (this was actually the reason for the trip). I will be writing later about why I went on a Cayce pilgrimage and why he's important to me.

We also visited the Trail of Tears Commemorative Park. Did you know that only three of the people who died during the removal were buried in marked graves? Two of them are buried here - Cherokee Chiefs Fly Smith and Whitepath. 

I don't know how to describe what it feels like to be at this site, but I would encourage everyone reading this to find your way there and be in communion.

Downtown, I shopped a bit at Milkweed. If you're ever in Hopkinsville, don't miss it.

I fell in love with it as soon as I walked in the door.

In other news of the week, I experienced an uptick in interest and bookings for Prayer Paintings. For this, I am so grateful.

If you are thinking about a Prayer Painting, would like to host a workshop, or have any questions at all about this process and offering, please don't hesitate to reach out.

I watched the Razor's Edge this week, which I'd somehow managed to never have seen until now.

I also watched Slaves of New York, which I've seen several times but hadn't seen for a long time.

 

I hope you have a beautiful weekend, beloveds.

What are you loving right now?
