Donate Hair to Locks of Love

Whenever I feel I need a fresh start I cut my hair. I haven’t been to a salon in years and I just go at it with a pair of scissors. This not only makes me feel great but I can help someone else feel great as well by donating my hair.
This will be the 4th time that I’ve mailed my hair to Locks of Love. If you are interested in donating your hair, make sure that it is at least 10 inches in length and not bleached (coloring and perms are okay). Find out more on their FAQ page

This has a extra special meaning for me in that I lost my mom to breast cancer. I remember that losing her hair was one of the most traumatic events of her battle with cancer.

Christmas Tree Shopping & Spontaneous Hike at Friendship Park

We bought a small 5′ tree this year and were able to fit it into our Camry trunk! It was so easy! AND for the first time since we’ve had Oliver, we went on a spur of the moment hike. (Instead of an hour of prep time, only to realize it was feeding or nap time…and give up, or go with a fussy baby).
We happened to be next to Friendship Park between San Pedro and RPV and had an awesome hike as well as a nap for Oliver in his Ergo! So rejuvenating…crisp fresh air for tired parents. 🙂

Rainy Night House by Joni Mitchell

Ladies of the Canyon was my first introduction to Joni Mitchell. This is one of my favorites on the album; I used to sit on the living room floor as a kid and listen to my parents albums for hours.

Cabin Clean Up in Running Springs

We spent a nice but allergy filled one night at our remodeled cabin this thanksgiving weekend. I enjoyed the sunrise from our living room, by the fire with my hot chocolate in an awesome 70’s mug, while my dad played with my son on the rug. I found 3 of this type of mug, so awesome!

We were there to clean up after the remodel. There is construction dust and rat poop everywhere and it was an allergy nightmare, but the beauty of the area makes up for it.

We have a family of deer who live around the house that we admired; such an amazing respite so close to Los Angeles.

A sketch I did today; I hope this gives all those who haven’t voted yet a little inspiration.

Tokyo Sunrise by L.P.

This song, “Tokyo Sunrise” by L.P. pulled me out of my delirium after having my first child. Even in my sleep deprived state, this song made me feel really alive and appreciate my new life and new baby.
Laura is an exceptional artist with so much passion in her performance…please enjoy
