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!

Mango. I’ve been on a mango kick. It has a refreshing spiciness. Rocking the glasses for a night of “Titanic 3-D.” I kept gasping as if I hadn’t seen the movie at least 14 times. “Maybe they changed the ending … Continue reading
I got this original piece of mini art out of an old cigarette machine at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento. You put a token in to the Art-O-Mat, pull and out drops a painted block of wood. Love it. … Continue reading
Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend filled with loved ones, good eats and relaxation. It was one of those weekends where I did a lot, but nothing at all. It’s nice sometimes, ya know? What … Continue reading
I have that annoying “Friday, Friday …” song stuck in my head, which is just unfair because it’s entirely too early on a Monday morning. A Monday morning that involves me going to work soon while everyone else sleeps late … Continue reading
Pictures of lately (from top): Carrots from a friend’s garden, as well as basil seeds that should sprout new plants and a pecan, tasty inside its thick wooden shell. A napping kitty. A flower on an afternoon walk. And a … Continue reading
