Camping in cellphone range. Also, I forgot my book light. Can I unplug while I'm still connected? We'll see how this goes.

An evening walk up through the Nestucca Bay Wildlife Refuge meadow. Incredible views of the mountains, bay, ocean, Cape Kiwanda, and Haystack rock. Got to use my new trekking poles. #bodytrust #themoonremembers

Tillamook county, Oregon. Where cheese comes from. Smells like you imagine it would.  Love it here.

Camping near the Oregon coast. So stoked to finally have a comfy camping chair that is wide enough for my butt and hips to rest easefully without the arms digging into my thighs. Know what I'm talking about? Yay for big sized, higher weight limit camping chairs on sale at Freddie's!!! Also, Sammy is digging it here too. #bodytrust #themoonremembers #effyourbeautystandards #fatpositive #fatacceptance #losehatenotweight

Thank you @resilientfatgoddess for capturing this tender moment of cuddles and connection between @marshallk and me. Not that long ago I would have been horrified to see a picture of me that shows my belly, but when I look at this photo I just love how his cheek is resting against my skin. How we are able to be a place for each other to land, for connection, for comfort, for rest, for love. #bodytrust #fatacceptance #fatpositive #effyourbeautystandards #losehatenotweight #themoonremembers

Some days my body is a celebration and some days, well some days we are not. Some days like today I get my period two days late, one day before a camping trip. Two days of wondering if this means I'm going to maybe be a parent. I've come to terms with having ambivalent feelings about this possibility- and it's always interesting to see what ratio of disappointment to relief I experience month to month as I continue shed the contents of my uterus moon after moon. This time the sadness is sitting in my body, pulsing with my blood. Some things around desire have shifted recently, and with it...🌒🌕🌘My body doesn't always do what I would have it do, or what I want us to do at any given moment. My body has wisdom of its own, and I only get to hear what I am able to listen to. I keep coming home though, keep asking to sit by the fire and hear our stories, and the stories of those that came before us. 🐉 🌓🔥#themoonremembers #bodytrust #fatpositive #fatacceptance #effyourbeautystandards #losehatenotweight

Greetings from the expanse of my belly, the heft of my breasts, the round softness of my face that blends gently into soft roll of neck. Greetings from these arms and hands that rest on my belly, my chest. Greetings from chin hairs that I pull at thoughtfully, crows feet and smile lines, earned every one. Greetings from aches and pains, and pleasure too. Greetings from this body I call home. #bodytrust #losehatenotweight #effyourbeautystandards #fatacceptance #fatpositive #themoonremembers

Prague has a lot of 1) art supply stores (I passed 3 walking less than a mile) 2) sock and stocking stores 3) off-leash dogs.

Morning in Prague. After plentiful sleep and waking up to unfamiliar bird sounds before sunrise, first order of business. Arrive. Arrive by writing myself home to my body. Remembering to remember. Last night I woke from a dream about Kafka and I told him 'what the mind speaks with ease and clarity, the body will be able to take into itself.' Ok. I'll take it. #bodytrust

My whole story is here. Whiskers and rolls, scars and wrinkles. Skin kissed by the sun summer after summer, and the parts of me that stayed in shadow regardless of the season. Here it all is, darling. Every inch, every ounce. Soften into your softness. #beyourownbeloved #bodytrust #reclaimbodytrust
