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!

    Congrats on your grant! That is so inspiring to hear.
    This week I am loving time alone, my new tarot card deck and tantric turmeric kombucha.

  • Jessica Minguez

    Con-grant-ulations! (Sorry; I had to!)

  • Sarah C.

    WOO HOO on the grant!

    It’s been a good week over here, so plenty on the ol’ love list: my parents moved in next door to me, and so far it’s been awesome!! // the ACA repeal DEFEAT! // my seed starts have been doing great (though the wind cracked in half a tomato I was hardening off; boo) and I’ve put out the chickpea starts // taking a long walk with my girl and seeing her do sun salutations every ten feet! // my parents’ move-in has meant a few new pieces of furniture moved into my house and they look GREAT and make my living space feel bigger and more spacious (odd but true) // my parents’ being here meant DATE NIGHT // we saw the James Baldwin film I am Not Your Negro and it was amazing and necessary
