I’m creating a Pinterest board of Halloween costume ideas for hobos. Just because you’re homeless doesn’t mean you can’t be festive! Above, a homeless teenager turns the lid of a trash can into a cheerful turtle shell (and we all know, hobos come with bandanas).

My Morning Routine (What’s Yours?)

My morning routine: After my sunrise yoga practice, I swish coconut oil around in my mouth for 30 minutes while holding plank pose and reading  The New York Times cover to cover. Then I wake my darlings with kisses and homemade organic green smoothies. 

How about you? How do you start your day?

Roasting vegan marshmallows over the fire pit to celebrate the launch of our 3-year-old’s first book of poetry. The New Yorker said her work has a “childlike innocence.”
