Bright 💎 Blonde!! This is one of my favorite colors to do.. sometimes it takes multiple appts, but the end result is SO worth it! I did a million babylights all over, painted the sections left out, and toned with @redken
Shades EQ. Also used @olaplex
every step of the way ☺️

For Father’s Day weekend, I packed up my wife and sent her on a backpacking trip to the Colorado high country, just her and some girlfriends, while I stayed back in Tennessee to continue the comings and goings of our little, mostly unnoticed life. My heart and mind travelled with her to those far away places, where air runs thin and wild’s whisper is palpable.
Why was I content to stay and not go? Contentment is a relatively new phenomenon for me, to the extent it still feels weird, like an outfit that works but isn’t yet the you you knew. Or like one of those life paths chosen by my heart where my mind follows uneasily several steps behind. Is that the path less traveled Jesus taught about? What exactly is that? I’m seeking, and it sure seems like I’m finding, and finding, and seeking and finding.
I asked myself this question over and over this past weekend: why was I content to stay home? As I rose early before work to prepare food for the kids and let the chickens out of their coop to graze on weeds and mites, as I washed dishes, folded laundry, spent long hours out on our property cutting back invasive ivy growth and pruning to make way for new life, there it was. As I rode bikes around Chattanooga and brunched at our favorite local haunt with our kids and my parents, caught up with friends at an urban park, spent quiet evenings listening to podcasts and reading after the nightly bedtime routine of teeth brushing, books, and singing Damien Rice lullabies there it was again and again. I thought about it more while sitting on our front porch sipping coffee watching the sun rise, during my afternoon runs to the waterfall behind our home, and later while savoring good whiskey on the same old porch swing enjoying a sublime reverse sunset unfolding endlessly over Hawkin’s Ridge across the valley from our home nestled into the mountain - less a feature and more and more my sense of belonging and deep connectedness. In these moments it hit me - over and over like a pulse, a reminder, a whisper - it hit me. I love my life. I am grateful for it. And like some archaic mystery solved, or magic, or myth unfolding, here I am ... content.

Can’t believe we’re coming up on a year since we moved into our lil’ mountain cottage, and well I still sometimes can’t believe RJ turned me into a mountain girl 👧🏼🐮 Sometimes I wish we had more land so that I could have cows and goats and a barn but then I remember how it took us almost 11 months to hang these window boxes & realize we probably have enough on our plate 😂 #HomeSweetSitton #OhYesPlz #SignalMountain
Banana French toast! 😍

Bluegrass grill never disappoints when I go eat there for breakfast! Everything is delicious! The omelets, pancakes, hashes, bacon, etc!
Chatt Town mornings from a high point of view
Coconut lime curry chicken + roasted bok choy ...trying to vary my green veggies, so instead of my typical mixed greens and Brussels sprouts, I went with bok choy! It's a good choice because it is a cruciferous veggie like broccoli and cauliflower. A lot of research shows that these veggies have unique cancer-fighting abilities. They do things like protect our DNA from damage and inactivate carcinogens. ...like magic, but ya know..better🌱🌱🌱
Bok Choy is also super high in antioxidants, vitamin C+K+A, potassium, and folate among others. ...just try it, okay?
Anywayssss, the chicken is sautéed with onions and cooked in 1tbsp coconut oil and a curry sauce that consists of: 1/2 c lite coconut milk, 2 tsp curry powder, 2 tbsp fresh lime juice, 1 c chicken broth, 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, and s+p.
Bok choy: sprayed with cooking spray, sprinkled with salt and curry powder and baked at 450 for about 10 minutes.
🎧 sound up! We have 5 new additions to the Horwitz House!!! .
For those of you who haven’t been following, we have 2 sparrow nests. One is in the potted plant on our front porch and this one was built inside a camp chair on our back deck.
One of the chirpies hatched 3 days ago, the rest lastnight and this morning. Big brother has been taking sweet care of the newbies while Mama is off getting food. She’s been great about letting us share in her joy X5!
Summertime babies being born here in Tennessee! Caring for cattle is an around the clock job that our farmers take very seriously. “Know well the condition of your flocks and give attention to your herds.” - Proverbs 27:23 #NaturallyRaised #WellFed
