Today is for Lovers

Things I love today:

  • Bridging the gap in geography with modern technology (thank you email, Facebook, and this little Ole portal right here!)
  • Refreshing, revising, and revisiting the bookmarks I’ve added to my computer and finding gems like this, and this, and this.  Doesn’t it almost act as a journal?  Note the dates, the subjects, the moods.  I think so.  What do your bookmarks say about your life?
  • Eating Beef Tartare–a recipe adopted-twice-a-month from Nourishing Traditions–with my one-and-a-half-year old!  I took pictures of the process, and I’m excited to share it with you on Monday, stay tuned, y’all!
  • These cookies against the grain!
  • Wrapping our lunch boxes in our napkin (yes, they are coordinating colors, it’s by chance, but I know the Universe stepped in and that’s a part of how I know there is meaning to life) and then taking our lunch to meet friends for a picnic in the park.
  • Willie learning to sign her very first name outside of mama and papa; our friend Michelle (hands together in front of the heart as if praying).
  • Beautiful herbal infusions
  • Kumquats!

Today is for Lovers

Things I love today:

  • Celebrating National Poetry Month with a poem a day
  • Rain in Santa Cruz
  • Reading! And the library!
  • Lloyd Kahn‘s Tiny Homes book. I just got it in the mail yesterday, from Mr. Kahn himself, and let me tell you, it’s amazing. Amazing! And über inspiring, too. Guess what, reader? If you stay tuned, there is a give-away of this book coming this weekend. Yes, your opportunity to win this book is coming! Thanks, Lloyd.
  • Parts of a cow, as follows (for eatin’):
  • A Sunday party to celebrate the Easter bunny, to eat good food, to hide, hunt and decorate eggs (Willa was assigned two eggs to hide. She also coincidentally found the same eggs…), to play croquet (!), to take a Sunday drive up the coast and into the forest and around the hills, to remind ourselves why we love our home, and to be with friends new and old alike.
  • I love snuggling up in the bus while the Senator radiates heat waves with my baby and my man.
  • Watching Willa communicate via sign language every few minutes. I think it may be a mama-bias, but she’s brilliant.
  • SHEET & TABLE FORTS!
