Sunday means a trip to the farmer’s market, and no trip is complete without these fave farmer’s market essentials (clockwise from top left):
With my kombucha for detoxing, a hat to keep those nasty UV rays off my porcelain skin, and a caj shirt dress to help me look farm chic, I’m ready to load up my tote with the earth’s (organic) bounty.

Teddy surprised me with a weekend in Paris! We drank a gorgeous bottle of 2005 Château Pétrus and served cruelty-free pâté to the homeless (sans abri) in between marathon lovemaking sessions.
My Children Love Hanging Their Organic Underpants in the Sun
A colleague told me a horrible story this morning about her toddler spreading poo-poo all over his crib. Yuck! Little Edie and Little Eddie were both potty trained by the time they were six months old (and even that felt a little late…) They love helping me hand wash their organic cotton underpants and hang them to dry in the sun…

This morning I had to take three deep breaths when Edie wanted to skip her sunrise vinyasa flow in favor of a Kundalini meditation sequence.
Today I flowed seamlessly and effortlessly from one task to another. Wait, was that yesterday? Silly me! It’s every day!
I’m the One That I Like
I’m thrilled to report that as of today, I’m back on Tumblr after a very nourishing social media cleanse. Every morning for the past few weeks I’ve lit a Jo Malone London Lime Basil & Mandarin Deluxe Candle (energizing) and reminded myself of my intention to BE. HERE. NOW. while repeating the following mantra: “I like myself. I follow myself. I am my favorite.”
Just Like Me!
“Mariel Hemingway gets up early, perhaps as an unconscious homage to her famous grandfather, to watch the sun rise. Each morning, while still in bed, she and her live-in boyfriend, an erstwhile stuntman and actor named Bobby Williams, begin a series of predawn exercises that consist of breathing, stretching, contemplating the things they’re grateful for and visualizing the day ahead. Hemingway then makes the bed and a pot of jasmine green tea. She fills the hummingbird feeders with organic sugar water, feeds organic soy-free meal to the brood of egg-laying hens that live in her backyard and heads back to the kitchen to prepare a smoothie.”
