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!

And not so grounded
Tonight when we came home from dinner, the girls were digging around in their toy box. Greggie pulled out a strange little weighted piece. She said, "What's this, Mom?" I examined it and remembered that it came on some helium balloons. "Oh, it's a little weight that you tie to a balloon to make sure the balloon doesn't fly away." She responded, "Oh, okay, Mom, I need a balloon!" and threw her arms up in the air and said, "Up up and away I go!"
