My amazing friend Jess has begun a blog called Preserving Beauty that uses the metaphor of canning and preserving food to express and discuss larger issues of how to sustain the things that nourish us. She brings in guest writers, as well as writing about these topics herself, and intersperses those essays with stories and recipes for literal canning and food preservation. Plus, gorgeous photographs.
I love it love it love it.
She asked me to write a guest post and it went up today. I'd love it if you would check it out: Preserving Beauty Means Asking For Help.
