Hair of the Dog

We’re in the heart of the dog days of summer. A time of year marked by inactivity and lethargy. It seems like life has taken a pause (or should I say, ahem, Paws.)

Staycation

Staying…

The Art of Glamping

I remember the sky as a place of quiet. It was inhabited by colorful dreams and elaborate stories; it authored tales of adventure out of slow moving shapes in the stratosphere and fed me robust ruminations. Now in my twenties, I reside in a small, cluttered apartment where fluorescent lights pollute the night and fast-flying technology stifles all stillness.

Inspired by my three-year-old’s interest in finding treasures, I created a Farmers Market Treasure Hunt for my two young boys.

A Fresh Start

The inspiration for architect Renee del Gaudio’s family home began with a fire. A massive fire in 2010 spanned four miles in the Sunshine Canyon area and burned 179 homes in that area. One of the homes destroyed was a property owned by del Gaudio’s family. Though a tragic event, del Gaudio discovered a new perspective on a familiar landscape.
