Looks like we're headed into a very hot weekend here in Los Angeles. Last year, the day after our ceremony, we had a lazy brunch by the lake and ate all of our wedding leftovers & drank rose & shared day-after-wedding laughs and stories with friends and family. It was pretty hot out that day and I decided to get all my friends in the lake! It took some convincing because my uncle had a fish with insane scary jaws on his fireplace mantle that he had fished from the exact lake that I wanted everybody to get it! Some of my city friends had never jumped into a lake in the middle of a forest before. So, Elijah and I took the first jump, and much to my delight, everyone followed soon after! It was the best swim I have ever shared with friends! More here.

*side-note: I did check with my uncle first to make sure that the scary fireplace mantle fish wasn't aggressive and that there wouldn't be anything that would bite before we all went in. He let out a huge gregarious laugh before reassuring me that no, it wasn't dangerous to swim in the lake.

A little something I picked on my walk with V.V. I decided to gift it to my bathroom.

Jessica Willis

Pretty incredible & esoteric masks created by Jessica Willis. My lovely friend Tiza was telling me all about her and I just felt the need to share it with you too. Have you ever made a mask? I once thought that "Flower Mask" would make for a good name for a business.

Thanks Tiza*

Lazy, laaazy Monday...

Oh goodness, it's all dark out today and I woke up late and lucky me, got to spend a nice hour or so with a cappuccino and flowers with Elijah and V.V....lazy, laaaaazy, sweet Monday...

How's the beginning of your week so far?

Let's Give Japan Love!

I'm so excited about this brilliant collaboration idea with SFRD and The Rainbow Project! I'm going there to support, and I'm thinking of dropping off some wildflowers too! Will you be there? Let me know! Another beautiful & clever way to help a country out...

*Please take a second to check out the magic being offered by The Rainbow Project. It seriously is wonderful. It took me about 5 seconds to upload a rainbow and make a little contribution ;)

Wire vines

Aren't vines so cool? I've always loved them. Especially the kind that grow and cover up entire houses! Doesn't this look like a nest that you'd want to crawl into and read a book in? My future garden is going to have a ton of vines! I found this image here.

(Thanks Olga*)
