2020 Silver Lining

What has your silver lining been in 2020? This year has been… intense. Crazy. Unpredictable. Heartbreaking. Surprising. A dumpster fire. A blessing. Weird.

We’re still in the thick of it, but since we’re nearing the end of the calendar year it’s a good time for reflection. Here are a few prompts to get you thinking about the positives of 2020. A few of us here at Soul Flower included our responses.

Oliver Makes Bread

~A photo session from our second Adventures at Home series. Written & photographed by our bud Hannah. (Featuring our bud Oliver.) See our first feature, A Walk In The Garden here.~

We’ve all seen them: the bread makers. Those people in quarantine that rolled up their sleeves and got to work creating fluffy, salty and experimental bread loaves. So I thought I’d take a minute to share with you all that my kitchen has also been taken over by bread. How does this pertain to Soul Flower? Well my partner joined our Soul Flower family over quarantine as our new assistant screen printer. Now he can print you a t-shirt and make you a beautiful garlic and chive loaf. So put on your fave SF tee and some fresh tunes and let’s make some bread. Or just look at these pictures I took instead.

A Walk in the Garden

~A photo session from our first Adventures at Home series. Written & photographed by our bud Hannah. (Flower close-ups from our bud Oliver.)~

Since Covid-19 came to town there are two places I go to escape: one is my car and the other is my Aunt Laura’s garden. While my car may be filled with gas and music, it lacks the beauty and care that a 30 year old garden has. So today I’ll take you though a visual of what I see when I step inside her pride and joy.

While we’re bucking old traditions, let’s make it a little more eco-friendly, too. Maybe we’ll discover new traditions we like better; ones that are kinder to our planet and our souls.
