This was a week of sentimental synchronism. A nostalgic sort of week, indeed.
This was the week that I introduced Waits to Nirvana (he dug it – smart kid), and the week that Jeremy and I stayed up late singing and dancing to all our favorite 90s songs.
Also the week that I reconnected with not one, but TWO separate exes, completely coincidentally, just 3 days apart. And I mean exes from *way* back, men I haven’t seen in nearly a decade, or longer. Wild, guys. WILD.
Nostalgic. Sentimental. This has been a week of looking back over my life, and my goodness there’s been so very much of it, and just sort of marveling over the many, many, many experiences that lie beneath my skin. I have lived a *lot*. I have packed it in.
And I’m doing good, I think.
Alright now y’all, let’s stop for a moment to think about all the amazing simple, small things that we have to be grateful for. It’s time for the one, the only, Le Love List!
Being able to be friends with my exes. ALL of them. It always surprises me that most folks don’t maintain relationships with the people they’ve loved. I always do. I guess that’s just the way I am, and I’m glad for it. // Celestial Seasonings Country Peach Passion tea. // Cracking Waits up – getting him to laugh so hard he can barely breath. // My dad went to India and brought me back an entire bag of bulk spices, oooooooohmigod. // An evening of dinner and dancing to live music (lots of dancing!), with with my little mister. // Spring. It’s all around me here, blooming my flowers and sprouting fresh buds on dried vines . . . and bolting my dang broccoli! But I love it. Bring on the spring. // My super awesome mama friend has designed a “dry ranch mix”, 100% organic and gluten-free of course. And as one of the official recipe testers (those were FUN parties!), I can say with complete confidence that this is absolutely delicious! Just add vegan mayo + mylk! Available now on Etsy. // Looking back. I like to look back, and I always have. Peering into the past to revisit distant bits of the life I’ve lived – this life I’ve chosen. I guess I’m just a sentimental person, that way. I like to look back.
Alright my dears, now it’s your turn! Please tell me what you’re loving lately, and leave your list in the comments below, so that everyone can read and share in all the love around us!
And as always, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

This is me in grad school, basically. Ahhh, graduate school. So far you have managed to live up to every terrifying horror story, every silly cliche, every comedic profundity. You have squashed my fragile ego, spat on my starry-eyed aspirations, and laughed at me when I’ve stubbed my toes. And I’ve stubbed many toes. But [...]
Last year, to celebrate his 4th birthday, Damian and I took Waits to Disneyland for the first time. It was basically the best day ever, and we decided then and there that this would become an annual tradition for us. Kid birthdays at Disneyland! Well, Waits is turning 5 next month, and I’m sure by [...]
Green juice for two. ♥ Cucumber, celery, burdock root, dandelion greens, apple, fennel, lemon, & mint. Hello hello, and welcome to another end of another week. Was yours as wacky and wild as mine? Man . . . intense! First things first, thank you so much to everyone who voted in the poll last week [...]
Hello, and welcome to February! I am now one entire month into my Year-To-The-Splits adventure, and I just wanted to share the pics I’ve taken so far, [almost] every day, and the progress that I seem to be making. I know that it’s a marathon and not a sprint, but I gotta say . . [...]
