A Moment of Respect… In response to the racial tension taking place across our country, I have decided to pause content. I care deeply about matters of injustice, and of course, am against violence to any human regardless of race, religion, sexuality, etc. To be completely honest, I wish I knew the right response to convey here on these pages. Therefore, I have decided to step back and take a moment to reflect. My mother’s most impressionable message has always been to treat others the way you would like to be treated. I hope that we all can take the time today to think on this timeless Golden Rule.

I posted this on Instagram and thought it should be added here as well…

I am deeply saddened by the matters of injustice and racism spreading throughout our world, and I have decided to pause content for the moment. I wish I knew the right response to convey here on these pages, but what I know is that this is a time for change. I know I will never understand the pain of being judged by the color of my skin, but I will continue to do my best and educate myself. Breaking it down to the basics, I think we must all remember the Golden rule of treating others the way you would like to be treated.

  1. Thank you, I totally agree, this country has lost respect, period. If we had respect for one another, this world would be a better place.

  2. This was beautifully said as it comes from your heart ❤️
    It’s unfortunate that you can’t share your thoughts without being told what you should or shouldn’t be saying or doing at this time.

  3. Thank you so much for this. As a women of color with a biracial child who has suffered horrific name calling/ bullying as early as her third grade year by a teacher and then again in high school by a few parents, I really appreciate You taking a stand. You don’t have to know what to say. Your acknowledgment of the injustices taking place is enough. Thank you

    1. Thank you Kim. I am sorry to hear about what has happened, but I am glad you chose to forgive and help others. ❤️ xTieghan

  4. Thank you so much for giving us some reflection this morning. I honestly paused for a moment. This picture is so beautiful it brought me to tears. Keep posting dear T! I look forward to seeing them every day. Xoxoxo xoxo.❤️

  5. They’ve done it. The domestic terrorists who wantonly destroy personal property and livelihoods without respect for our personal freedoms and sense of safety. These terrorist groups have no compassion for the suffering of human beings or for the physical and emotional damage they do. They’ve done it. They’ve thrown a brick through your beautiful window. Mission accomplished. I join people from around the world who were shocked and incensed by what happened to George Floyd. I believe in peaceful assembly to draw attention to injustices and to effectuate change. The violent part of these protests does nothing to rally people to support a cause. The intent is to intimidate. Tieghan, you are not responsible for terrorists’ violent actions. I sense you’re saddened and disturbed, and maybe feel a little guilty. Don’t be. You bring beauty, joy, and respect to those around you and to those of us who appreciate what you do and who you are. My advice, and it’s only that, is to stand up straight, take a deep breath, fix your window, and continue to do what not only brings you joy but is the joyful part of life you bring to all of us. Stay strong.

  6. Thank you Tieghan so much for doing this. Pausing content just to bring awareness shows your beautiful stance on humanity. I love your recipes and always come by your blog and honestly couldn’t be more thankful for what you’re doing.

  7. Thank you for your thoughts. I we all need to be not only deeply worried but work toward a solution. Hope your day is a truly fruitful one.

  8. Respect. Of all the posts I’ve read over the past week, you, Tieghan, are the first to use that word. Thank you for practicing what your Mother taught you.

  9. Thank you for this message. Compassion and sensitivity for the pain of others and a demand for justice is so needed right now.
