Vacation


The girls and I are flying to CA this morning, and we'll be there a week. We're going to celebrate Art & my 15th wedding anniversary. Time sure flys by!

The girls will be with G'ma & G'pa while Art and I spend some time in San Diego, where we met 17 years ago.






I'm really looking forward to getting away and being invigorated... inspired... connected... balanced... focused. Being near the ocean and with Art will do that for me. We'll eat at some great restaurants and visit family & friends (including Kleo!).

I always have my restaurant guide in my purse. It's a small address book alphabetized by city, with veg friendly restaurants listed. Before a trip, I go to Happy Cow and copy the restaurant's address, phone, & description in my book -- anytime I read a review of a restaurant I want to visit, I just jot it down. It's a handy resource on the road.






I'll leave you with some shots of our garden, and let the photos do the talking, as I still have 100 things to do before the plane takes off!

I'm new to your blog -- it's wonderful and the pictures of the food are mouthwatering. I just LOVE the border of pansies, which are my absolute favorite flower, so I was wondering if they were yours, as well. Thanks for all your sharing!

Happy Anniversary! I love the pictures of your pretty garden and the pretty little faces helping out-how sweet. The eggplant look stunning.

Happy anniversary, and what great produce from the garden! Those eggplants look perfect--though I haven't tried that variety before, are they much different to the darker purple ones?

Have a great vacation! If your travles take you to L.A. you have to check out Madeline Bistro. It's over in the valley, I'm sure you can Google it. It's gourmet vegan cuisine...absolutely awesome! A little pricey, but worth it. Also if you're looking to have some meals just to have around during the week, there's a vegan delivery service, that I use. They're called Vegin' Out I order from them from time to time, thought you'd like to check them out. The site is www.veginout.com. Can't wait to read the post vacation posting...travel safe!
