Hi, friends. It’s been an awful week (year?) and we still have so many people in harm’s way with hurricanes, floods, fires, and horrible rightwing politics. I know so many people are feeling scared and emotionally depleted from everything going on and I am with you. Keep holding on to positive thoughts for the future and your compassion for those who are struggling even more. Big hugs to everyone! I hope you find some joy this weekend and find ways to help — it’s really the only cure for the doldrums created by both political and natural storms. You’re all in my thoughts. xo Jen

You guys, how is it already the end of August?? This summer is going by in a flash and I intend to make the most of the end of summer with plenty of time with friends coming to stay with us and making some escapes to the coast and fruit and flower farms. Also, patio times and ice cream and roses and and and… how can we fit everything in?? I love fall, but I’m not quite ready. I hope you have a magical weekend and get to savor the last days before the leaves fall. xo Jen
