  • This face. I've been friends with my sweet @negnog for 20 years. We've seen each get married, have babies, cry, laugh, travel the globe, and more. True friends of sincere love, light and compassion such as her are rare gems. Love you SO much, sweet Jen!!! Happy birthday!

Every Day





Every day should begin with hot air balloons cresting the ridge next to my house. They should then progress into strawberry cake walks for noble causes, transition into birthday parties for one year olds (lucky enough to have such talented and crafty mommas), and culminate with impromptu thai food dinner parties lovingly cooked by splendid husbands (like my G.) for eight friends and their collective 4 children. That’s how my Saturday went and it was magnificent.


Yup. It’s decided. Every day should proceed accordingly.

  • I am from Canada and am part of Slow Food Toronto, we are starting to organize some bake sales and street festivals. I love the idea of fundraising for a great cause. Right now we are fundraising for the delegates (which I was nominated as one!) to attend Terre Madre in Torrino,Italy. So exciting! It is nice to see that Slow Food has a presence in the U.S.as well. Great Blog!
