good here.

good here

my hair is on fire and i am feeling everything
dipping, steeping, beauty believing in me
over and over again in all the languages
being seen here and being heard here
having all the right tools here
efficiency is the name of the game
in a copper house with transparent walls
the madness makes it good here.

i am biting at the bit, my mouth like the scape of a horse
i am bulging out of my pants, oozing out of the zippers
my bones enveloped by the taffy like land that had me at hello
please buy some carrots, figs, cucumbers and watermelon radish
put them on my eyes and lets make a face

i want to pop, i want to pop up shop
letting go is the name of the taco stand
healthy heaps of salsa and guacamole
i can hardly keep my eyes off you
pop goes the weezel
raccoons and zen masters
i want to travel with this circus
maybe on one of those long dirt roads
i will hear myself inside the dust and the fog
maybe I will not care about what you think
and you
and you
maybe it could be real good here
lobsters and drawn butter
the innocence of a summer
string lights and picnic tables

i will start believing in me
wearing my apron, jeans and pastel cottons
i will try not to fall asleep as we had ideas
desires of it being good here-
i really want so much that I can’t stop--
i want me and i want you
i need a thousand naps and I want to perform more than I knew
i want to be good and i want to make it
i want to figure it all out and then write lots of easy books,
easy to read & easy to write

i hear beauty
her foot steps and her one sock nap
our time is up.

i have to turn this off to start again
i want to do it better
less heavy
more light
half and half is perfect for me
i like it in my tea
warm with brown sugar cubes from france
turquoise birds on the box, the kind of box you want to keep
the kind of box that says fancy and barefoot, more money than god
but groundless and breathing, what trip to take, fearless about life,
homeschooling and showering in the same week
that could be good here.

wood board love//post-market moment.

hi beauties!
this was so yum & love
i had to share it with you
this was a post-market moment
where b & i were just too hungry to get
anything together... you know what i mean? 
(i didn't ask b if she was hungry or what she wanted)
i created the board with what inspired me at
the market and what was close by in the baskets
the goal: to deeply nourish us
i turned on a bit of fire with the toaster ;)
so here it is.. a small farm to table love fest
with all the farms to shop from on sunday in hollywoodxxxx

cut up white nectarines (kens top notch produce)
cherry golden tomatoes (harry's berries)
fat & crunchy spring peas (givens farms)
avo mash with salt & lemon (jj cole's daughter)
sour dough toast with apricot honey (drake goat cheese)
goat cheese & smoked salmon (cookbook market)

i would love to see YOUR wood board love
that you are creating this summer
please send your pictures in and i will post them
big love beauties xxxx

independence day parfait.

so this story began with a desire for ice cream
but the bowl of the ice cream maker was not frozen yet!
so with the hunger high for a sweet treat
i had to come up with something on the fly....
and the independence day parfaits was born!

this is the simplest desert
and of course you can do a brekkie one with 
yogurt & granola too.. this is 100% whole
whipped cream with a little pour of vanilla &
powdered sugar added... oh and the love in there..
it's like no other!

 o & b wanted to help
so they filled the jars
and whipped a bit too
it's a family affair with the parfait
i think it took all of 5 minutes!

strauss whole cream
(they are not paying me/
just have to share the love)
powdered sugar
vanilla extract
locally & organically grown
sweet blueberries
& ball jars


enjoy your family
red, white & blue
big love beautiesxxxx
