This is the story of our adventures -- every day and extraordinary; our dreams -- tiny and grand; our gardens -- ornamental and sustaining; this is the story of our journey. We are a family of four living a mindful, simple life here in Los Angeles County. We are green, conscious, and forward thinking. We keep an eye on the past because some of the best things have already been done and bear repeating. Walk and talk with us, have a glass of wine, taste a peach or a tomato, blow some bubbles and watch them drift up over the canyon ridge. Enjoy!

When Nancy and I were little (for those who don't know, Nancy is my OLDER (hahahaha) cousin, 3 years to be exact, that grew up next door to me and has always been more sister than cousin. She and I are bound together in our Gemini souls, as well as in our childhoods. We were pretty poor growing up and had a grandma who knew a whole helluva lot poorer than we could imagine -- having raised 4 children through The Great Depression. Nancy and I had a habit of getting the Sears Wishbook and going over and over it -- the girls clothes and pj's and undies and all the TOYS -- "I want that! I NEED that!! OOOOH! LOOK at that THAT!" Grammy would always yell when she saw us, "Anna Mae! Mary! They're BOOKIN' it again!" Can't beat out what's bred in, so, here are my girls tonight, bookin' it.
