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!

Two Weeks in Jersey

It was so hot during our visit that my dad's car window exploded. 

Gregorie had a blast catching fireflies:







Uncle Steve escorted all the little ladies to Nancy and Erik's wedding.

We caught a quick pose with most of the cousins (missing Charlie and Nathan).

Sara, Alex, and Gregorie explored the museum.

We all laughed with the bride.

And the mother of the bride shook it up!  So did my mom!

Mom and Dad and I posed with the other Nancy.

Alex and Nina danced with the bride and then Alex and Sophie just took a good spin.

The next day at the picnic all the kids had a blast hanging out together.



My girls got dressed up fancy and had some professional photos done (password is Marlyn).  After Greggie worked on some pictures of her own.


Alex and Gregorie dragged me to the attic to pull out some of my old Barbie stuff.


We went to the Turtleback Zoo and met up with Tory and Zane.



Alex sought some advice from her wise, older cousin.


We went "down the shore" with the Marzullo clan.

The Alex Marincas Family posed for a family photo.

And the girls had some final laughs with Emily, daughter of my friend Karen.

It was a good trip.  We miss everyone.  But we're happy to be home!

What a great East Coast trip it was! I am so glad we finally got together. You are just as beautiful now as in highschool. I was so comfortable with you guys, like we hadn't missed a day together. Your girls have a special place in my heart forever. Cant wait to come to the West Coast. Love and miss you guys.
