It was an absolute pleasure to see Cheryl Strayed again in our hometown last night. I’ve heard her read this essay “Tiny Beautiful Things,” (now published in the book by the same name), but it always, always, makes me cry.
"You don’t have a career. You have a life."
"Your book has a birthday, you don’t know what it is yet."
"These things are your becoming."
We are so excited to announce this! One of my very close friends, Max Turk, is a Portland-based artist who creates jewelry made of locally harvested herbs. She came to us earlier in the month with an incredible idea — she wanted to create a special necklace for Unbreakable for healing, empowerment, and self-love. You can read more about what is in the necklace (and what each herb/flower does for healing) here, and feel free to check out Max’s work at Roots & Crowns! She was also generous enough to donate half the profits to our cause.
PS: My favorite part is that on the birch bark inside the necklace, it reads “To Overcome” “To be Complete” and “To Empower”. You can’t see it but I like just knowing it’s there.

I’m so incredibly excited about this! Please repost, share, and maybe even order one of these!
This is fucking important. Emma Watson on gender equality, everybody.
Coolest tat ever sighting, last night.
"If you could give one piece of advice to a large group of people, what would it be?"
"If you feed your children with food earned from corruption, they will be corrupt. If you feed your children with food earned from honesty, they will be honest."
This guy knows it all.
I have been working SO hard to perfect my craft; creating energetically balancing + healing necklaces out of herbs that I personally harvest. This is a labor of love, and I’d appreciate all of your support so much. Please follow @rootsandcrownspdx and check out the Etsy shop, Facebook page, etc. Really exciting new/collaborations will be announced soon! 💚
