We planted a few carrots this season, just a few! I wish sometimes I had a piece of land to have a small farm. I would love to grow rows and rows of carrots, rows and rows of tomatoes, rows and rows of lettuce. All the things we grow are in very small amounts, almost for the fun of watching the seeds turn into veggies and fruits. I picked this sweet little carrot. I washed it off and ate it! I gave the last little carrot nub and green leafy top to Sarah bunny bunny, she lives in our house and that's the beauty of no veggie waste when you co-exist with herbivores. It truly does feel very mindful to be patient and wait for the food to fully develop into something we can actually eat and it feels so gratifying to me to pull it out of the earth. I love earth on my hands and under my feet.
I'm off this week for a mini road trip with an old friend of mine and our kids. We are headed to Idaho. I can only imagine we will find some really epic photo moments, things I have not seen before. I've never been to Idaho. Can't wait! I will miss motorcycle man and the boyz but sometimes it just makes for a nice homecoming and a renewal of relationships. Do you know what I mean? I almost can't wait to come home again and I've not even left, coming home is as exciting as leaving. The big embrace and smiles are irreplaceable!
Check out to see what my creative partner Christina is up to, did you see her epic hike last week? She inspires! I just read her emotional story of how she made it up a 14'er in Colorado last week despite the fact her body literally didn't want to take another step. AMAZING! The views were stunning and I'm so proud of her. You can see what mindful moment she wants to share this week HERE AT 22 LIMES.
