August included: watering my acreage while my neighbor played her piano, a crazy vine like creature growing around a cord, new outfit for Anne’s birthday, my favorite disco ball out at The Snug for her celebration, a favorite poppy mural downtown, my handmade ceramic beads, pedicures with my Momma, sewing the end of my 100 blocks with Maggie Rogers, the Mezger Zinnia Patch, the 100th block!, my crazy wild flowers, a hot summer night in Sac after a Blog Bloc event, a post yoga glow, a WATERMELON macaron, breeze on a warm weekend walk, some rest, disco balls while walking home from work, a peek-a-boo sunflower in my neighbor’s yard, glowing skies at the mall with my takeout sushi, Identity Coffee work dates, my neighbor’s clothesline creating summertime magic, cotton candy grapes, sunset driving back to the Bay, surprise picking up my sister, a fire pit with the family and sweet friends, planting some special bulbs, getting stuck behind a train while almost home, garden progress, my cutie solar lights doing their thing, a time lapse of me cleaning up, and the strangest rain in the middle of a hot summer morning.
Celebrating a new logo made by Brown Pigeon and fresh photos taken by my sister!
Playing catch up on my 100 day project. (Working on block 89.) Only 11 more to go for the completed set, but then the exciting part begins. Wondering if I slowed down at the end because of what I’ve set as a goal for myself after I have 100 blocks.
Watching this silly video with Tan France of Queer Eye and my favorite, John Mulaney.
Eating caprese salads. Filling, easy, and so seasonal.
Drinking coconut La Croix again.
Listening to a playlist of Carly Rae Jepsen, Lorde, Betty Who, and Maggie Rogers. Powerful ladies FTW.
Enjoying ‘The Chef Show’ on Netflix. And making ScarJo’s pasta recipe. It’s simple, and rich, and delicious.
Smelling garlic because of all the aforementioned pasta.
Loving time with work friends and enjoying this space to grow, and kick butt, with lovely humans. It’s interesting to be hitting such a sweet spot in my work life.
Enjoying hosting my parents and sister recently. We tried new restaurants (Solomon’s), did fun activities (a pottery class!), and spent quality, real life, time together as a team. Grateful.
Thanking the garden Gods for my giant zucchini! It was huge and actually tasted great! But my veggies are struggling overall, so I’ll be lucky if I get any tomatoes or yellow squash. Container gardens seem to be a guessing game for me.
June included: my grief retreat at the Urban Adamah, squash plant updates, a date at Ruhstaller with lego creations, a garden portrait, playing with candy at work, growing handprints in my filled planter boxes, tomatoes, sunshine shadows outside of therapy, airplane tunnels, turtles at Descanso Gardens, Salt & Straw with the fam, my new-to-me ride to work, a happy song while closing work, date bubbles, releasing ladybugs on my squash plants, my beloved bougainvillea wall in Midtown, backyard decor, dancing to Katy Perry, an rare evening walk, flourishing squash, a new fairy garden at the park, hydrangea season in full bloom in Midtown, a killer sunset after leaving yoga, my first wildflower from the yard, catching up on #the100dayproject, my new favorite nail polish, Sunday night summer vibes, a table scene, my first perfect watermelon of the summer.
