Traveling through any forest in the state, you’ll see stretches of charred tree lines. The stark beauty of those blackened, spindly trunks against an azure sky has always moved me, evoking both sadness and hope. In June 2017, while searching for a photo-shoot location, our stylist, Tina Gill, unintentionally stumbled upon a sweet tiny house nestled in the midst of a burned forest. The striking backdrop of scorched trees turned out to be the perfect setting for our story, and the crew and I spent the day climbing over fallen branches and stumps. At that point, the year was only half over, and many unexpected tragedies, horrors, and heartbreaks…

can a teal cowl heal hatred in america?

“We’ve all lived in this nirvana,” said Susan Bashline, co-owner with Blair Williamson of Magpie Knits, about the violence in Charlottesville. “We never thought anything like this could happen here. We had lulled ourselves into this sense that we lived in this low-crime place and didn’t realize there was all this going on underneath.
