This snack is summer in a bowl and yet, the creaminess of the guacamole combined with the cayenne pepper makes it surprisingly warming in the winter. Either way, it is comforting all the way around. I like to eat it mid-day, sitting by the window, watching the birds flit about outside. The addition of micro-greens not ... Read more

My thought process for getting dressed today: “If you are going to wear a space-print skirt, you might as well go all out and wear a flying saucer on your head.” This skirt is actually part of a two-piece set I have, but the top is a little bustier more suited for summer wear. I ... Read more

Okay, not really.  I would never call myself vegan out of respect for those who actually are.  I still like meat and butter, milk, cheese, eggs and a myriad of other things that come from animals.  I just choose not to eat them.  For now… During my three-month hibernation from the world, I signed up ...

Sometimes I retreat to the confines of my home and hide from the world.  For like, 3 months.  I think as long as I had internet access, I could be a happy hermit. And then, I finally get out into the world and remember what I am missing. A whirlwind of events and people and ... Read more
