Healthy eating is a lot easier when you can pick ingredients straight from your own back yard. Here's what I made with our fresh-picked blueberries today...
A look behind the scenes behind my cartoon life; or, how we freelance musician and artist types survive adversity and overcome challenges.
Cartoon action figure sketches drawn from life are so much more fun than sketching from stock photos...even more so when the model is your mother.
Crisp fall days call for baking, and there's no better place to buy your baking supplies than the King Arthur Flour store in Norwich, VT.

Selfie sticks have health benefits, too...
Although I had to say goodbye to Paris early yesterday morning, I feel like a good dose of the Parisian aesthetic came home with me. To clarify, I didn’t buy any souvenirs (aside from the food I ate, my only other purchases were two postcards!); however, the constant people watching and sight-seeing was like a crash course in good taste.
To begin with, Parisians seem to have a love affair with good food made from good quality ingredients.
Wouldn’t you be inspired to eat well if your supermarket veggie display looked like this?
So when I arrived home yesterday afternoon, one of the first things I did was to head over to Whole Foods to purchase some zucchini, tomatoes and pesto for a healthy dinner of Pesto “Zoodles” with cherry tomatoes. Eaten al fresco on our patio, I could almost pretend that I was back in Paris!
Today, I spent much of the day finding things in the apartment to give away. Paring down seems somehow very Parisian. My goal is not only to de-clutter (an ongoing task when you live in a New York apartment) but I’m also eager to make sure I’m surrounded by only pretty things. And to that end, I went out and bought myself a bouquet of flowers for the bedroom.
Could this have been my inspiration?
