Sunset Farm Picnic

A few weeks ago, Blake and I were invited to our friend Julie’s farm in Jackson in Amador County. It was jaw-droppingly beautiful at sunset, the perfect way to kick off spring! We mashed around the property on a golf cart before we hopped off…

Guide to Los Angeles | Silverlake + Venice

Birthday Thoughts

Clean, Colorful Eating: Superfood Bowls

This past weekend was a rarity as far as weekends go. I achieved that illusive balance of getting things done and enjoying myself. By Saturday night, I’d accomplished two loads of laundry, had a long, insightful talk with my dad (who lives overseas, so…
