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!

What is it about these river roads that always seems to lead me to some place new and full of magic? Sometimes it’s just a particularly stunning sunset or a grove of fruit trees. Other times, it’s an entire city, … Continue reading
Friday. The best day of the week. I try to tell myself that I am in love with other days of the work week. That I love Monday for its fresh starts or Thursday because we’ve accomplished something by that … Continue reading
Hi friends. Last night, as I was making final revisions on a huge work project that’s been keeping me busy, I was so excited to think I was only a day away from having time to work on photos and … Continue reading
The sun came out strong Saturday, giving Sacramento a reason to put on shorts and flip flops, sunglasses and hats and get outside. A few of us had plans to check out a mobile food fest, but with 10,000 attendees … Continue reading
