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.

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

I love that the first time I ever saw little Rowan Peter he was wrapped tight like a wonton and fast asleep in his crib in middle of rose bushes and a bean tower. He’s a special one, that little … Continue reading
We drove 45 minutes out of town and, voila: it was as though we were on a real vacation. We kayaked, stopping to water loaf and drink beer, until dinnertime. We finished cooking in the dark, and everyone spread bowls of kales and … Continue reading
