Hello hello hello! Oi to the weekend! Oi to summer and sun and play! Oi to mini vacation weekend adventures and to lazy afternoons spent lounging! Oi to abundance and bounty and manifesting desire!
Oi to the world,
all the boys and girls,
Oi to the fishes in the deep blue sea,
and Oi to you and me!
And a special “Oi!” with a super thanks to Miss Meghan (Bonzai’s OG Meghan), who was so kind to drop a little something into my tip jar this week. Thank you so much lady, you help to make this place awesome and fun and I think you’re just the bees knees!
And now, without any further ado, on with the thankfulness!
Le Love List
1. HELLO MY BOOK IS ON PRE-SALE!!! This is just about the most exciting thing to happen to me in a long time. I am just giddy, and honestly, I’ve rarely felt such genuine pride in something. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m always proud of the work I do because I always do my best, but this book . . . well, it’s just my passion, and mostly I think it’s really, really going to be useful for women – both informationally and inspirationally. And I’m just pleased as punch about that. =)
2. San Francisco/Bay Area – Here We Cooooome! Next weekend/week the little family and I will be going on our first real vacation (ie, not “home” to visit family). We’ll be galavanting all around the bay, where I did some of my growing up (UC Berkeley “Village” family student housing, what what!). I haven’t been to the bay since going vegan, and I am seeeeriously excited to try some of the amazing eats there. We’re thinking a fancy-pants dinner at Millenium and a meal at Cafe Gratitude (which location is best??) and Damian is definitely getting a Cinnaholic and I’d love to visit the all-vegetarian sushi restaurant. But, we’ll have a ton more meals and I don’t even know how to choose, so please give your recommendations! What’s your fave veg restaurant, and what’s their best dish?! What are the “must see/eat” stuffs? Raw foods? Breakfast spots? Best coffee? Also, fun things to do! Cheap museums/attractions? Kid-friendly outings? Awesome shopping? (thrift and vintage of course) We’ll be spending time in both SF and in the east bay, so gimme all you got! Thanks guys!
3. Yesterday I was driving home and I saw this business man in a super-nice suite pull his 60+ thousand dollar car over to the side of the road, hop out, and buy a cup of lemonade from some kids on the corner, and if that’s not the sweetest thing ever, then I don’t know what is.
Alright guys, now it’s your turn – tell me what you’re loving this week!
