Hypnotized by beer @eclipticbrewing.

Soaked in some hot springs by a lake with some squirmy second grade boys (one of whom is the sunshine of my life 💗), friends, and nice strangers. More weekends like these, please. Also! So many of you asked me where this was. Paulina Lake. #notasecret

Shall we sing a song? Do a dance? Ring a bell? It’s FRESH HOP SEASON. This was my first fresh hop beer this year, and oooh, it was a good one: @littlebeastbeergarden Fera with fresh Centennial hops grown on Sauvie Island. Can you see me doing my fresh hop dance? 💃

I come here to be alone. I come here to find company. I come here to move. I come here to be still. I come here to feel small. I come here to inhabit everything. 
Why do I come here? Because I can. ✨

We grew these! Feeling proud. More proof that I’ll only garden if it produces food. The non-food parts of my yard are 🙈 Who wants to help me replace the lawn with cheese?

Going for every swim. Dripping with peach juice. Picking tomatoes. Suffering scrapes, splinters, sunburns, bug bites. Leaving the windows open. Drinking all the pilsners. Summer, I’m sweet on you.

Gratuitous shot of summer in a glass @aviarypdx. The days are getting shorter. Get it. 📷: @mark.royer

Went local today when, from the California side of this gorgeous lake, I drank a @firestonewalker beer. Then I ate an avocado. 🥑
