2 years ago, this intersection in my hometown of Charlottesville became known for hate. This morning, I drew it into a symbol of unity. Go and take a picture of The Unitywalk before it rains!

Two days after the 2019 NCAA national championship banner was hung from the rafters of the John Paul Jones Arena, word came that UVA men's basketball coach Tony Bennett had refused a salary increase. Instead, he wanted the money to go to pay raises for his staff and for program improvements for future Virginia teams. In addition, Bennett and his wife, Laurel, pledged $500,000 to a career-development program for current and former UVA men's basketball players."I have more than what I need," Bennett said. "I'm blessed beyond what I deserve." #cville#charlottesville#virginia#uva

Come hangout with us tomorrow night during Wine Wednesday from 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm! Kiddos & doggos are welcome!
Painting some milkweed pods today. Using sepia paint, I start in the darkest part of the painting with the seeds that are in shadow. As my brush uses up the paint, I eventually move into lighter areas that require lighter and thinner painted lines. #wip
Two years ago, we planted Asclepias tuberosus (orange butterfly weed) in our garden. Now, we have a chrysalis before our eyes. Plant native plants that support our pollinators!
We’re not sure what we love more about this picture; all the bright colors and the fact that @brook_robinson_photography managed to turn pool towels into the most beautiful backdrop...or the perfection that is our Original Granola Butter 😋
Okay okay, our favorite part is the spoonful of granola butter...but Brook is still an insanely talented photographer!
Happy first day of Fall, #barrebabes ! .
We've got some really exciting things planned for the month of October starting with more HIIT with our Barre Bootcamp classes, more childcare options, foundations classes and FIRST CLASS FREE! .
Get ready, Cville! We're bringing you a sweaty October!
We definitely notice we are in a better mood after Cryo!
Posted @withrepost • @cryoprosunited WHY does whole body cryotherapy help with mood disorders? Because they are also caused by chronic inflammation, new research shows!

Seems like Summer is holding on a little longer around here! That just means extra patio time 😉 ♨️

Great shoes will take you great places! ✨
Tap some love for the anonymous donor, who gave these sparkly girls the opportunity to have shoes that match their spirit! Even their little brother was excited for them! #GreatNeighbors #MakeMondayMatter

Get this homemade broccoli and cheese ravioli during this month’s @holmesdinnerclub event. You won’t be sorry. 🧀🥦🍽
Les Wong, Shaklee Vice President, Global Regulatory Affairs notes; "The results of the Landmark Health Study are unmatched in our industry. In fact, we challenge anyone to find another company that stands on a foundation of Living Proof as strong as Shaklee’s.
And just to remind us of those results, let’s revisit! Compared to non-supplement or single supplement users, long-term Shaklee users have: - Lower prescription drug usage;
- Higher self-report of Very Good to Excellent health;
- Lower risk of dementia; - Better cardiovascular health;
- Reduced risk of cardiac arrest; and - Lower inflammation due to healthier levels of C-reactive protein.

#climatestrike (oh hey I’m back)
A bit of optimism:
• about 1000 people showed up in #cville
• people of all ages were represented, especially youth
• a big focus was on Union Hill
• people really hate the MVP and ACP
• topics of environmental racism, greed, & injustice toward indigenous peoples got decent exposure
Now some realism (teetering toward pessimism):
• will we be heard? Often the euphoria after a mainstream strike has a short expiration date. Think back to the Women’s March, Occupy Wall Street, #NODAPL , and March for our Lives. What influential legislation came from those? •
• next steps? So far, the mainstream response has been to vote in future elections, call/write to politicians, and donate to orgs. that care. Cool, got it. BUT you’re asking a bunch of middle class folks to donate money they might not have - all while fossil fuel companies write single multi-million dollar checks to hundreds of lawmakers who are damn near willing to pour petroleum into their breakfast cereal to win elections. Is there one powerful, unifying force with the momentum to turn elections & American attitudes (since our shamefully high percentage of deniers/hoaxers stagnate progress)? That’s not a rhetorical question.
• thinking locally: with the abysmal leadership of @governorralphnortham, with Dominion Energy performing strategic lap dances for VA’s elected and non-elected figures of power, and with a president who won’t grasp the basic concept of how energy grids work, there is so much work to do locally & nationally.
💪🏾 There are plenty of other accounts that will preach only ❤️🌈✌🏻about the whole #climatestrike experience, feel good about showing up, but then forget about it next month. NOT ME. There’s work to do, so I’m going keep spreading the word on this platform (it seems to work - love the engagement I get from you all). I encourage you to do the same. I’ll list my favorite IG accounts in the comments if you want resources. 📜
Ps - Happy I got the rare opportunity to share the experience with @ryan_wood_ksc - that’s why we’re all smiles in the last pic. As a bonus, I reused old foam board scraps to make these signs. I do love a good sign.

Hello Fall. 🍂 watercolor on calfskin vellum - in my shop. Thank you for all the activism card purchases on Friday as part of the climate strike! I sold out of my 12 sets and will donate $120 to the Charlottesville Climate collaboration today. 🙏🌎 #fall#firstdayoffall
This morning feels like the first day of Fall, but we’re running the sprinklers to keep our fall greens from wilting in the 93 degree heat this afternoon! It’s been a hot, dry transition to fall, but our students are making it happen and the farm is slowly turning green again! @cvilleschools@cityschoolyardgarden@chs_blackknights

Fall is finally and officially here! 🙌🏻 If you saw my stories yesterday, you know my family and I spent the last day of summer at @gapviewkennel, just outside of Harrisonburg. It was the perfect place for our “woof-woof” and farm animal-loving boy. And on Friday, we watched the sun set on @chisholmvineyards. I was able to document the evening, plus meet so many people and spread the word about my Kid’s Portrait Event next month!
Detail shot! 📸
This kitchen had a set of four cabinets placed in an awkward location. All were directly under a bulkhead that is not a great design feature and also far enough over the peninsula as so not to be easily reached.
The clients wanted to incorporate wood somehow into the design and after lots of back and forth conversation and collaborating, these shelves came to be.
Open shelving can get a bad wrap because it’s super obvious when your coffee cups don’t match!
We saw these shelves from giant walnut slabs to planed and oiled shelves ready for install!
They may be my favorite part of this remodel! What’s yours?
