I work in a farm in Sandy Oregon, the fields are overseen by the majestic Mount Hood and my favorite thing to harvest are cherry tomatoes. Sweet little tomatoes come in a variety of colors and they seem to make the trip to my mouth very often.
Some of my favorite Santa Cruz moments always seem to happen on Saturday and usually starts here, at Santa Cruz Westside Farmers' Market! Wonderful organic produce, live music and welcoming energy make this place a great start of your weekend adventures.
The NC Arboretum is a beautiful place with lots of trails and lovely gardens, but this is my favorite walk to take there with my sweet Josie.
This illustration depicts my love for live music. I’ve been missing it so much and can’t wait to be back there again! So many small venues around the country were at risk due to the pandemic. I was proud to rally with other concert-going fans to raise money to help save some venues from closure.
The pond at Ooms Conservation Area is a great place to spend some quiet time walking, observing nature and sitting down with a sketch book or easel. The area has several walking trails that meander up and down the hilly meadow. At the top is a gazebo and benches for resting and taking in views of mountains and the pond below. In the summer, the meadow is full of milkweed making it a haven for monarch butterflies. The site is great for observing wildlife such as bluebirds, blue heron, eagles, beaver and turtles.
The first swim after a year of the pandemic was magical. I planted an herb garden, having discovered that deer don't like aromatic plants. Bring on the salads! Watching the first Hummingbirds arrive after their long migration is always a thrill.
Hiking the Nevado de Toluca is an amazing day spent ... I live an hour away from here and every time I get the chance to spend a day here I cherish it. Even that time I got caught in an electrical storm (jaja). Anyway, if you are into hiking and around DF check it out!
I love to bike ride through Crissy Field. It is definitely one of my happy places. I love the plentiful, free parking. I love rolling down the bright green grassy hills with my kids. I love visiting The Warming Hut Bookstore & Cafe, waving to the seabirds at Torpedo Wharf, and then hitting the San Francisco Bay Trail on a bicycle.
My Happy Place is the UC Davis Arboretum which is about 100 acres of horticultural paradise.
It brings me such peace and happiness to meander through it, taking in all the sounds, smells and glorious sights.
Each season presents new floral delights and even some migrating birds!
I treasure this natural space and continue to be grateful for all the gifts I receive from it!
