Happy spring! We celebrated the vernal equinox this week and a few days later, my new spring seeds sprouted their little leaf buds up out of the soil. The sun is shining and sky is clear. It’s been a great week!

Here’s what it looked like:


Family hiking way up high above wine country.


All the rain we had this winter brought an early wild flower bloom.

A mountaintop picnic.



From the middle of nowhere in nature to the center of it all downtown — fountain side drinks and hours of conversation with the bestest of girlfriends. AKA, therapy.

This guy was cracking me up!

Shuffle board is way too much fun.

Wee Waits was featured in our local weekly, in a spread about the non-profit I work for. Double awesome!

And this electric critter has been extra cuddly this week.

Nature = church.


And now, it’s time for the one, the only, Le Love List!

Basically just having the best week with Waits. Some weeks are hard, some weeks are SO GREAT. This was the latter, and it makes everything feel awesome. // Push-ups! // My new coworkers asking questions about my vegan lunches, genuinely curious to learn more. // Waits being super extra sweet to me because Jeremy told him I had a long day at work. ♥ // Getting emails from long-time Bonzai readers from across the world, following up on emails they’d sent and correspondence we’d had *years* ago, and letting me know how things all worked out. Man, sometimes I really LOVE the way the Internet can connect us, it still just blows my mind. // Snuggling with cats when I’m naked. // Double dates and darts (even when they stab Jeremy in the shoe, oops sorry babe). // Our grant is getting granted GUYS this is potentially amazing job news for me!!! // Nashville (the show). // How sometimes, once in a while, Hercules comes when I call him. // Burning the sage I wild-harvested in Ojai, and reconnecting with the moon. // Walking in nature with Jeremy and Waits, all of us holding hands, and singing together. Good golly, my heart!


Alright guys, now it’s your turn! I really love reading your own Le Love Lists, so please leave them down in the comments below. What are the little things in your life that make you smile this week?

Happy Sunday, I hope you have a most wonderful week!

♥ Most excited little kale smoothie makers, this week in my kinder-garden. ♥ So I’m not going to lie, this week got the better of me, a bit. This new temp job I’ve taken on is really great, and it feels very professional and grown-up and it’s so different from how I’ve been living my [...]

Just a very short one this week, because it’s been both boring and busy, which doesn’t make for many pictures. But hey – TEN! I kind of can’t believe I made it to week ten! When I decided to attempt this 52Photo project, it was completely on a whim. I decided to do 52 photo [...]
