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 #lodica

This is just a little continuation of that Capitola weekend. As the valley heats up (to 102 last night … eek), I’m feeling the pull of the coast again. Where are you escaping to this summer?
Aaaand, it’s back. Golden light. Soft breeze. Strums and soul. Picnic blankets. Weekday evenings. It is Concerts in the Park, the best weekly idea since Sunday-fun-day! It totally breaks of the week and makes you feel like you’ve stepped into … Continue reading
Happy Memorial Day! Perhaps you’re waking up on this holiday in a beach house and sipping coffee with almond milk on the patio. Or maybe you’re gearing up for a day of shopping all those giant holiday sales. Or maybe … Continue reading
