baking black pepper peach pie as a practice of loving myself through shame. slicing peaches over the kitchen sink and thinking about what @_ashdashlee_ said about how “accountability without grace is just punishment.” rolling out pie dough and reckoning with how it is far easier for me to have grace for others than for myself. washing dishes and reminding myself that the by the grace of my community i am capable of creation and growth—it is not actually necessary for me to fold into myself in penance. #kitchenrevolution

happy friday! here’s a flashback to @virginia._slime & @ilovecrying being extra at Olivia’s gay-ass wedding in Big Stone Gap, VA. i am gonna start posting more photos like this because i am tired of seeing all these photos of Appalachia that look like a flood come up in here and washed out all the people and the color when the reality is that our lives are as vibrant and boring as anywhere else —so spare me yer kudzu covered crosses, I am here for our hedonistic leather daddis.
