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.

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!

Hello, Monday. I took an extra long weekend and hit the road with my mountain-bound family caravan, my dog on a big pile of blankets in the back sat and the kayak strapped on top. We had days full of … Continue reading
Find links to these Polaroids here. Ah, kayaking. My heart really wants to paddle. I realized recently that last year by this time, I’d already pulled out the kayaks. Maggie and I took a trip up the Mokelumne River outside … Continue reading
Sunday was Father’s Day, but it was also my dog Sara’s (named after the dinosaur on Land Before Time) third birthday. After a family barbecue, my sister and I tied two kayaks onto the top of my car and went … Continue reading
