For me, being a dark-skinned black woman with natural hair, getting to be this center of this love story — Growing up, I didn’t get to see that very often…I think that artists and people in entertainment, we have such an incredible power to remind people of their worth and to help people dream big. So it’s exciting to get to be a part of that.
* getting flowers for every holiday. every.one. * so. many. herbs. (honestly like a big ass cupboard) * going crystal shopping together (and spending too much money and time there) (imagine my dad crying in the corner) * flowers in every room in the house. every. * so many rose quartz stones (because i’m born in may) * our house is filled with candles * drawing a protective sigil over our door every new years evening * “i accidentally spent 300€ at the florists and im not even regretting it.” (actual quote) * cutting my hair only at new moon * going to medieval festivals because they are hella cool * with like proper outfit and shit * no idea for a present? herbs. * or plants. * or candles. * bonus points if they are colour coordinated * celebrating samhain, ostara etc * living for the autumn season * convincing my dad that “yes we need that cat. totally.” * srsly how is he not going crazy * explaining my friends it’s not weed, it’s sage. * cleaning spells while cleaning the house * discussing herbs for spells in shops and earning weird stares * huge ass, gorgeous garden * “go water the flowers.” * “go mow the lawn.” * “don’t discuss with the mother witch.” * she sends me videos at 3am how to cut the cherry tree. why. i cry. * water bottles out of glass with energising crystals on the ground * her grimoire is so beautiful * like srsly her handwriting has me crying.
but most important: knowing that whenever id wanted to stop being a part of all this, it would have been okay. my dad is not a witch, and that’s okay. for me witchcraft is just a part of my life and i love it and am proud to have a witch mom ♥️
