A Tiny Treehouse Treasure in the Woods - Leafcutter Designs →

so funny to happen upon this blog post from monday which was the day before we found the tiny treehouse on our own hike while lost and wandering! it’s fantastic that this tiny post office has been around for 7 months now and is still charming and thriving!


I hope getting lost in Tilden is just a rite of passage and will not happen again. It was beautiful and we were generally in earshot of a road the whole time but I hate being lost and/or thirsty. Also the views and the cute little elf house also made the adventure more ok.I hope getting lost in Tilden is just a rite of passage and will not happen again.

Bike buying and kite flying around Berkeley today. 

I really need to start wearing sunscreen since these sunny skies keep happening to us. My Birkenstock tan is getting dark. Eventually I’ll have strong enough legs to climb the hills. I will not stop eating all this fruit. And now we watch Robocop while drinking wine made 5 blocks away.

Wind power is currently making just a small, if powerful, contribution to the world’s energy mix — just 3 percent, meaning it’s still no match for oil and gas. But according to industry analysts, it’s headed for a major upswing, and the worldwide supply of wind energy will more than double in the next five years.

Wind power is set for a comeback. (via salon)

driving across america made this seem so visible and so possible. 

(but maybe it’s just visible on i80, in which case - great product placement!)


harsh truths

at the age of 31 i’m still aspiring to be a chic and light traveler. but last night i flew out of SFO wearing yoga pants, a hoodie and keen sandals. like river tourist shoes. because i love them and they’re comfy.

and i was carrying a backpack the size of a 100 year old tortoise shell that stuck out 2 feet from my back.

and then on the redeye i wrapped my velour travel pillow around my neck and jammed in earplugs and covered my eyes with the hello kitty eye mask my mom gave me for christmas. and i promptly fell in and out of sleep for the next 6 hours until i was forced off the plane.

so harsh truth: i will probably never be chic. i like to be comfortable and prepared and wear things that are cute to me and 4 year olds alike. and i’m a dork. always and forever.

OH WELL.


Slowly making friends with this pretty girl who lives in our yard. She is approximately 1/3 the size of Max and 4x as skittish. Almost as handsome. Making me miss my Maxy even more. Thank goodness I’ll have him tomorrow! View Larger
