    Hi Erin,
    I searched your archives here for a recipe I think you posted years back: A Simple Rye Bread for Toasting. Do you still have a link to that or can you reshare? Thank you!

      Hi Anna (and Erin), it’s just me, a crazy person reading Erin’s weeks old post+comments and recognizing the name of a recipe post from 2015. Good recipe and one of the all time great blogs!

    That living in a before photo article really touched a very sensitive and hidden part of my soul. Thanks for it!

    These links are fire. The recipe one was so relatable to me as an artist selling my work on instagram. The constant demands to explain my process when what I’m trying to do is sell the work, not teach the work. It’s exhausting. I see it with you and other women online too where you get the constant ‘where can I buy this?!’ comment even if the post isn’t about selling anything. Truly, who are we becoming?
