“It’s cool guys, no worries. I got it from here!”
And now to slip on that attitude of gratitude, that ever-essential weekend send-off, Le Love List!
This week has been so full of so many things to love that I can’t possible rank them or name them all, but here’s a solid attempt:
GREEEEEEEEEN JUUUUUUUUUUICE // my big beautiful family of both blood and bond, I am so lucky to have you and I’m thankful every day! // being emotionally open; showing vulnerability; being supported there // cruising Whole Foods with my amazing incredible spectacular boy child, sharing green juice chatting our way through the aisles. he is growing up so damn fast // today I had a raw lemon mini tart by Hail Merry and it was easily the best store-bought raw dessert I’ve ever eaten // two amazing women named Kate, who each inspire me in different ways // watching almost an entire season of Ru Paul’s Drag Race in one sitting, with vegan pizza delivery and spicy seasonal beer – now THAT’s a mother-effin’ vacation! (so much love to my girl Kate!) // walking around dowtown SB, narrating my youth to Waits “see that? Mommy used to work at that coffeehouse! and see this? this is where Mommy climbed up to do that crazy photo shoot in high school! and over there, in that ally there? that’s where Mommy used to smoke . . . er . . . well never mind about that! Mommy used to have a lot of fun there *ahem* moving on” // the beach the beach the beach, and how every time we go outside now Waits says “beesh! beesh!” // very dear friends-of-the-family who tell me stories about my mother // oatmeal with roasted almond butter and jam // daiya-corn tortilla quesadillas // missing Damian // feeling totally, utterly sun-soaked and ready to face the Portland winter // dreaming up Waits’s Christmas list and feeling excited about Christmas for the first time since I was a kid // getting ready for Hanukkah and getting ready for “veganized matzoh-ball soup”, attempt number 2! // AMAZING emails from Bonzai readers that light me up and touch my heart and gosh, I hope you guys know how much you mean to me // driving the backroads of my home town, with Waits napping in the back, with the radio on, with the sun shining bright, with my mind at peace, and thinking “Yeah, I think I could be happy living here again” (no actual plans of moving, I promise you’d know!) // conceptualizing a redesign, a Bonzai 2.0 // making this for non-vegans (let alone RAW vegans) and getting rave reviews // gaining a few pounds is always a sign of a good vacation, right? HA . . .
Alright guys, now it’s your turn – tell me what you’re loving this week!
