Spring Inspiration

Spring Inspiration

I am headed to the airport shortly to hop a plane to Seattle. I haven’t been to Seattle since a couple of weeks before I was married. I remember three things about that trip: 1. We dropped the transmission of our car on one of the most remote of the San Juan Islands and had…

Snippets: Flora at Tower Hill  (And I’ll be Speaking)

Snippets: Flora at Tower Hill (And I’ll be Speaking)

Do you have plans this weekend? Why not take a hike outside and gather the makings of beautiful floral arrangement? If you were able to look out my window (at many feet of snow – and with a couple more on the way) – you’d think I was ludicrous for making this suggestion. But if…

I’m Moving! (not far)

What a week! The beginning of the year always feel like the first week coming back from vacation (a little tortured) but whew….it has been especially crazy here.  The next issue of PITH + VIGOR goes to print soon, so we have been slightly out of our minds pulling it all together.  I love jumping…

I make little resolutions all the time so especially at the New Year I try to remind myself of those things I’ve been working towards since forever. I have this recurring art buying resolution theme that I annoyingly have struggled to follow through with. I mean its like shopping, right? why do I have such a…

The Rose Parade: A Look Back to One Year Ago Today

The Rose Parade: A Look Back to One Year Ago Today

I can hardly believe that one year ago today, I (with my family) sat on the streets of Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena, CA and took in the spectacle that is the Rose Bowl Parade.   As the guest of the California Cut Flower Commission I had spent the previous two days meeting cut flower growers…
