Happy New Year. I am gratitude. I am peace. I am better than I’ve ever been. All is well in my world (thank you, Louise Hay) this year, may we all remember that we each own a spiritual toolbox that we can always draw from, like a bottomless well. We are capable of brilliance and light,
and love in the face of hatred. Kindness in the face of impatience. Deep breaths people. I send each and every one you so. Much. Love. Cheers
Superheroes. They go all over the world making it a better place. They shine their light and spread joy. There isn’t a room that this little boy has ever walked into that he didn’t leave lighter and more joyful. I am in awe of you, Jameson Moon, and I feel lucky everyday to witness you and be your Mama. Thank you for making us better and always reminding us to smile. Happy birthday buddy.
From me and my family to you, and yours.... I wish you deep healing breaths and joy in your heart. Something yummy to eat or giggle about. Happiest possible holidays to each and everyone of you. Here’s to a healthy, safe, and healing new year.
On our way to a drive thru Xmas lights covid style extravaganza, my kid found his favorite persons bracelet.
Then he made an epic exit but soon realized he truly wanted the pepper he picked from the garden. I share this because it feels very important somehow.
As if surviving covid wasn’t enough for this poop sandwich of a year! Well, I got my stitches out from drying that wine glass, that went well. Then I recovered from my very first staph infection for no reason (cry for help?) (right knee was lonely?) so I thought I’d fracture my ankle! Later tonight I’m gonna climb inside a raw chicken and see if I can’t check out what salmonella’s like! 2020 is the gift that keeps on giving ???????????????? I was actually running down the stairs trying to see the Christmas star! Ha! Turns out it’s not until the 21st. Happy holidays everyone! Who wants a Negroni!
Future first lady Jill Biden has a message for the world ― and probably most specifically Wall Street Journal columnist Joseph Epstein.
Biden on Sunday tweeted a simple and effective response to Epstein’s op-ed, published on Friday, that criticized her for using the title “Dr.” Biden holds a doctorate degree in education.
“Together, we will build a world where the accomplishments of our daughters will be celebrated, rather than diminished,” she wrote in her tweet.
Epstein, in his column, addressed Biden: “A bit of advice on what may seem like a small but I think is a not unimportant matter. Any chance you might drop the ‘Dr.’ before your name? ‘Dr. Jill Biden’ sounds and feels fraudulent, not to say a touch comic.”
The piece received a wave of backlash from those offended by its sexism, condescension and misogyny.
Prior to Biden’s tweet, her spokesperson, Michael LaRosa, fired off a tweet directed at James Taranto, the Journal editor who oversees the op-ed pages.
″[Y]ou and the WSJ should be embarrassed to print the disgusting and sexist attack on Dr. Biden running on the WSJ Opinion page,” LaRosa tweeted. “If you had any respect for women at all you would remove this repugnant display of chauvinism from your paper and apologize to her.”

Please read this bullshit And thank you @adamgrant for bringing this to our attention Repost @adamgrant
Shockingly, that’s the first paragraph of a WSJ op-ed today. What’s the worst part of it?
(a) Ignorance that in too many fields, women don’t get the respect they deserve without titles like Dr.
(b) A man who calls a woman “kiddo” having the audacity to offer advice
(c) Equating honorary and actual doctorates
(d) The condescending tone
(e) WSJ publishing it
(f) All of the above

Starting @twowolveswine was years and years of dreaming, studying, traveling, contemplating and exploring. When Carey and I finally dove into this beautiful ranch where we farm and make Two Wolves we became ever more connected to mother nature. We are now the stewards of our ranch, its land, soils and environment and we LOVE it. We are also baring witness to a massivce challenge and that is climate change as it continues to spiral out of control. Our dream is that we leave this ranch better than we found it to our children. This is why we supported The Monarch Challenge which is an effort to get rid of herbicides from farming. What seemed to be a lofty goal now has a solution… this coming week our good friend @CarloMondavi and the team at @Monarch_Tractor are going to introduce the world’s first all-electric, driver optional, smart tractor. This tractor will make clean farming economically superior to conventional farming while also fighting climate change by being all electric. Farms will no longer have to choose between Planet or Profits. It also means we can blast music without the rumble of a diesel engine while working, which we love. To learn more please join the global launch and RSVP or visit their website. for the launch via the link in the @monarch_tractor @carlomondavi or their bios
Last night I was joined by the remarkable Ndlovu Youth Choir to perform ‘A Million Dreams’ at the UNICEF Changemaker virtual event. To be separated by over 10,000 miles but still connected by music and our shared belief in the millions of dreams of children around the world was a true honor ????????❤️ To see the full performance and support the work of @unicefusa visit the link in my bio!
