nikkireed To say I am angry, sad, furious, confused and disgusted doesn’t scratch the surface. To say those officers, if we should even call them that, deserve to be accused of murder is not enough. Those are just words. I need to go deeper. I need to crack open my own learning and unlearning. We need to start educating ourselves, our children our communities and each other on the injustice that very much exists everywhere, and holding ourselves accountable. Starting with me. I promise to read more, to watch more, to listen better, and to show up. I promise to vote with this in the forefront of my mind, to talk about this around the dinner table, to do better...to be a better human. I promise to use my platform or donate my platforms to share other people’s stories. I promise to speak up, and to admit what I don’t know. I promise to ask questions. I will be continuing to educate myself by researching organizations, donating money/energy/time, by listening and hearing, and more. I don’t have all the right words but I promise I now see that optimism and oblivion don’t change the world. Being colorblind doesn’t change the world. Silence doesn’t change the world. Showing up for each other...we have to show up. Now. #georgefloyd #ahmaudarbery #breonnataylor #tamirrice #ericgarner #oscargrant #philandocastile #trayvonmartin #samueldubose #sandrabland #walterscott #terrencecrutcher
nikkireed Whatever. I’m the girl who posts photos of bread now and I’m cool with it. Because this bread is the best damn bread in the world PLUS I happened to have my camera on my body doing product photography for Bayou SO it deserves a pic AND it only has three ingredients AND I’m not a baker but I can do it so you can too. Also, started that sentence with “because” and I’m cool w that too.
So here ya go!
RAW Buckwheat groats (not toasted), WATER AND SALT.
Cover two cups groats in water. Let it sit for 12 hours. Drain gooey water and blend groats with one cup water and 1 Tbs sea salt. Let it sit for 12 hours.
Grease loaf pan w coconut oil and sesame seeds. Bake for 1 hour at 350. Batter will smell kind of stinky and that’s OK! BOOM😋 OG recipe inspired by my girls at @womens_heritage , plates/cups hand made by my girl @earthandelement . (Support local business :)!)
nikkireed Ooph Glennon, yes. You pulled this right out of my body. “Be brave tonight!”⠀
“We tell our children that brave means feeling afraid and doing it anyway, but is this the definition we want them to carry as they grow older? ⠀
Brave does not mean feeling afraid and doing it anyway. Brave means living from the inside out. Brave means, in every uncertain moment, turning inward, feeling for the knowing, and speaking it out loud. Since the knowing is specific, personal, and ever-changing, so is brave. Whether you are brave or not cannot be judged by people on the outside. Sometimes being brave requires letting the crowd think you’re a coward. Sometimes being brave means letting everyone down but yourself.” #untamed @glennondoyle
nikkireed Morning! Once a week I donate my social media to a different student from our @yearsofliving @putapriceonit campaign to share personal stories about how climate change has impacted their life, along with what we can do to be a part of the solution. If you feel inspired, dive in with us! I take photos and they write a story in the hopes that somehow through all the IG noise and scroll-through content, it speaks to you. You guys hold the power...your voice will create the change the world needs. If you can, pause long enough to read their stories, and share some of yours too... This week’s BEAUTIFUL story comes from Sharona Shnayder, a senior at Portland State University in Oregon. “Life feels at a stand-still. Like the rocks that form above our waters and in our valleys. Yet in the stillness remains life and beauty beyond measure. Right now we have an opportunity to preserve these immeasurable features of our world, to make it so the joy and light they bring remains sustainable for future generations. When we accept the reality of the climate crisis and hold polluters accountable for their actions these spaces are given a fighting chance. A key way of doing this is by putting a price on carbon. Think of it this way, if we pay to put our trash out on the curb, why should polluters dump into our atmosphere for free? When people hear the word tax they feel like something is being taken away, but what if you knew what you were receiving instead was a future? A lot of us feel powerless to such an intimidating issue as climate change, but what’s at stake is even greater...it’s our entire world. The inaction of failing to pass a carbon tax comes to us at an astronomical cost--our home and its beauty is in our hands, let’s choose to lift it up.”
nikkireed Thank you @voguemagazine for covering our new @bayouwithlove recycled acro-wear , alongside some amazing designers who are taking huge steps to combat fashion waste. As I mentioned when we spoke, we are moving towards our goal of using only plant fibers and fruit dyes for our apparel. We produce in small batches to remain slow and sustainable, while not designing around trends in an effort to create timeless pieces without catering to a collection driven year round calendar. Neutral, trend-less + multifunctional: that is my goal. Regenerative fashion, not just sustainable fashion, that is our new mantra. We are incredibly proud of this first batch, made from 100% recycled materials. While they aren’t biodegradable just yet (see loungewear release this week!), we will be working hard to achieve this with our second round of samples! Thank you Vogue and @emilyfarra for caring about our 🌎. When journalists like you cover what we are doing, you are a huge part of the change we need to see- you bridge the gap by bringing fashion with meaning to your readers... thank you! (@voguerunway Link in stories🤸♀️🌱) photo by @acrosprout featuring her other half @moderntarzan -thank you both for continuing to guide me through this practice and for being the cutest couple in the world!!
nikkireed Hoping to re-create this beautiful watercolor set up from last year‘s trip to the desert with my @spell girls, using only items I already have. Hmmm, this should be interesting... any good tips? Thinking I might have to create paint with fruits and veggies, and possibly use old makeup brushes...
nikkireed Making shapes sometime last year...pre-world-falling-apart . Hoping we put it back together thinking about why it collapsed in the first place. Hoping we look deeper than the nuts and bolts, rebuilding with a solid infrastructure, taking our time. If the race is simply to rebuild, but not to examine the collapse, then we are all short term thinkers. Let’s look beyond the building...
nikkireed You, me, a teepee, in nature...that’s still our dream date right? Four years ago we had no idea what we were getting into. We didn’t know everything we thought we knew about life, or what it means to be a real life- partner to somebody else. We were just two kids who were crazy about each other. We didn’t yet know how to grow with someone, but we knew we were in love and we knew we wanted to learn all of these things...together. I still have no idea if we’re doing it right, but I know we both wake up everyday and choose each other. We’ve seen a lot, we’ve done a lot, we’ve laughed a lot, we’ve laughed a lot of it off, and we’ve continued to be each other’s biggest cheerleaders, and truest support system. An amazing thing happens when you merge your life and soul with another. Your relationship becomes its own beautiful garden that continues to bloom. Gorgeous little buds pop up when you least expect them too, and sometimes the leaves fall off from over watering. It’s a delicate dance that we will enjoy for the rest of our lives because we both enjoy watching it grow. Love takes on a whole new meaning, it evolves as you do. May this next chapter be filled with curiosity and even more admiration for all the incredible things we still continue to discover. May we continue to ask each other questions and make-out in the backseat. You are the love of my life, the only one who gives me butterflies, and I’m so grateful we get to experience this together. Happy four years married my honey.
nikkireed Happy happy birthday to this one. Another trip around the sun, 41. A moment in time. I remember taking this photo, distant mountains were the backdrop to this beautiful cloudy day in Idaho. You were laughing uncontrollably, and it felt so sweet to see this smile, almost like you like were a kid all over again. We love you. I hope Germany is celebrating you, but nothing will top the happy birthday bunny cookies your little girl is so excited to give you when you get home. 🐇🍪🎂♥️
nikkireed I often get asked how long I plan on breastfeeding. To be honest, I have no idea how long her and I will be on this journey together. I follow her lead, and she tells me exactly what she needs. At 20 months she is only just becoming interested in food. I discovered after a year of blending and smooshing and mashing, that my daughter doesn’t like mushy baby food. Wild right? It wasn’t until someone suggested I skip puréed food and go straight to finger foods that she became intrigued by what was on her plate. Who knew some kids just don’t ever go for blended baby food. I tried bananas, avocado, all the semi-soft good stuff and she rejected everything. Never in a million years did I think to skip that step when she only had two teeth. Also, I thought all babies loved avocado! So all you mamas out there having trouble feeding your little one the mushy stuff, maybe try over-steamed veggies diced up itty bitty so he/she can play with textures. I wish someone had told me this sooner! If your little one isn’t eating puréed solids, they might want to go straight for big people food! Right now thats where were at, still breastfeeding and skipping right to finger foods. Also, in case you need to hear it again because I definitely did, whatever you’re doing you are doing it right! Every baby is on their own path doing things when and how they need to, and our job is to trust our gut, talk to other mamas and just go with the flow! Ps accidental matching outfits...come on! This bloomer/hat combo courtesy of both Grandmas making all my baby-wardrobe dreams I didn’t know I had come true :)
nikkireed This photo was taken four years ago this month. Thank you for inspiring me to follow my dreams. All of them. Our new @bayouwithlove bridal collection is almost here, and I can’t help but think of you every time I look at what we’re creating. Bayou With Love + Stand For Love. Each piece is made from 14-18k recovered gold from recycled @dell tech, using cultivate diamonds grown locally in California to ensure they are guaranteed 100% conflict free. Ps be sure to tag us in your favorite pieces as you get them! We want to see how you wear your Bayou! ✨✨✨

nikkireed 5am dates. That’s how we roll. I’ve always been a morning person but getting up to watch the sun rise with your partner is so powerful and so bonding. Usually one of us is up with the baby allowing the other person to soak up the last few minutes of much needed sleep, but rarely do we both get up before the house is awake to spend that time together. Before the world is awake, before the cars get on the road and the cell phones start ringing, we are met with a good morning melody of chirps and peeps. A wake up song from the trees. Silent appreciation caught on camera by our sweet friend who met us right after with tea for this magical moment #mcm 📷 @wildgoatevents
