WELCOME!I’m Lauren — a gentle wanderlust who lives in a little valley nestled between Sacramento and San Francisco. I embrace life’s littlest and most poignant moments, and share them here.
FOLLOW @theurbanhippie ON INSTAGRAM!Sometimes all you need is a sunrise paddle and a chat sesh before work. Thanks for being my co-early-morning-river-lovah @janelle_meyers! #FirstWePaddleThenWeDoThings #paddleboard #sunrisepaddle #thankful #OneWorkoutDownHappy, happy birthday to my favorite Henoveva. #lalaladiesnight #WeHeartGenevieveClusters. #grapes #grapevines #winery #lodicaBeautiful paddle on Fourth of July morning. #Swipe #CoffeeNPaddles #StandUpPaddle #paddle #lodicaLast night I dreamt about happy plant babies and blossoming cuttings. That’s probably what you get when you fall asleep to videos about propagating fiddle leaf fig leaves. My own plant babies need some love this holiday week, but I’m pretty happy that my fiddle leaf is thriving after I almost tossed it when I thought it was a goner two years ago with only one lone leaf. That might be my best IKEA purchase yet. I brought a second fiddle leaf home last week and hope it likes this bright room just as much. #growlittleplantbaby #fiddleleaf #plantroom #showmeyourbohoPaddling into sunsets and beneath full moons. #fullmoonpaddle #lodica #standuppaddle #afterworkvibesReason #56,841 summer is awesome: Concerts happen in orchards under towering shade trees. #NotToMentionAmazingFriends #lodicaSwipe!

Congrats to your fam, our lovely Monique!

It’s been a while since Five Senses Monday, hasn’t it? I guess there are a lot of reasons for the delay: Internet was down while we switched services; I’ve been trying to spend a lot more time moving and cooking … Continue reading
Our Thanksgiving was fairly small and quiet — as quiet as it can be when all the sisters and brothers (minus the one who is on yet another tour to Afghanistan) get together around the table. There was talk of … Continue reading
This past weekend, it was hot. Really, really hot. So I had a little “staycation” and made the decision to settle in Friday after work and not leave for anything — not for morning coffee, not to replace the milk, … Continue reading
Happy Monday, friends. The sun has been out a little lately, and it feels so good. Still, I know we need that rain and the mountains need snow — and my friends with snowboarding passes are hoping for fresh powder, … Continue reading
