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!

Things that make me happy

My husband cleaning up his tree trimming mess!
My girls' pretty bird houses.
Those glorious oak trees, trimmed and light-filled.

My first lemon!
Strawberry transplants starting to grow.
A freshly planted garden bed with fence and gate.
Art on the playhouse wall.
The walnut floor, even when it is Little People-covered.
The view from my kitchen -- okay, ya gotta look up through the skylight.
Nicaraguan pottery.
The way these Chiapan pillow cases brighten this couch.
This cute bicycle pillow Gam brought.
Happy children playing outside.
My sweet, comfy bed!
