We met @elmablintjewelry while strolling through @bkflea back in 2008 when we were engaged. I fell in love with her modern minimalist jewelry designs so we commissioned our wedding rings from this talented, hard-working mother. Our wedding bands are one of a kind modern minimalist rings that Blint combined my family stones with her unique style. We LOVE them and I still love Elma Blint’s beautiful designs and HER and with Covid-19 @bkflea has taken a big break and that’s tough on designers like Blint. You can support this business by purchasing some of her incredible designs like the VOTE rings (I’m obsessed!) or her cool pendants (going there to get one NOW!). You can also purchase gift certificates to the shop. Supporting Black businesses, Black mothers, and our Black community is vital right now and always. And frankly, it’s the least we can do

Today we were humbled and honored to march alongside thousands of fellow humans demonstrating solidarity with Black people against systemic racism and police brutality. It was an overwhelming turnout for a deeply moving day. There’s so much more to say and do and learn but my body is wrecked and tonight we rest, because this isn’t for show. It isn’t a trend. It’s an awakening caused by deep grief and trauma that the Black community has always had to carry. So I don’t share these photos for any pats on the back or to put a rosy spin on the tragedies that inspired today’s march. It was incredible and I’m grateful to witness and participate in history, but the weight of the pain of it all does not escape me today and every day and our actions and wallets need to show that. ❤️

Breonna Taylor would be celebrating her 27th birthday on Friday if she hadn’t been brutally executed by police WHILE SLEEPING IN HER OWN HOME. Stand with this amazing woman and with all black women by signing @battymamzelle’s petition and following the actions in her profile to honor and celebrate Breonna

I unequivocally stand with black people. I stand with unwavering devotion to the uprising happening now demanding change and actions to save the lives of black people. From June 1 through June 7 I will be joining the blackout and only using this platform to amplify this life or death crisis. Using this space to highlight actions we can take and WE WHITE PEOPLE MUST TAKE is the very least I can to. It’s a hollow gesture if I and we and the collective WE don’t also take this home with us and walk the walk and put something more than an Instagram post on the line. So I will also do that and I’ll humbly share knowing it’s not enough but it’s a start because enough is enough

Every act I take is one steeped in white privileged, every act I don’t is tainted by complicity. It’s on us white people to dismantle the destructive and DEADLY systemic racism that we benefit from daily. Donate to the Minneapolis Freedom Fund linked in my bio for one small action. Start somewhere.
