theurbanhippie twenty eight // strange // three lodi living editors all ended up in the same room at the hospital's blood drive this morning. so funny! @unkymarco was editor when i was hired at the news-sentinel, and @amazonjane stepped up when i left. it was a fun and crazy (and strange!) seven years with this crew. #fmsphotoaday #partylikeajournalist #newspaper #editors #writers #strange 2d

theurbanhippie twenty seven // morning // i would have preferred to show you a beautiful wintery morning, but this is my monday-thru-friday morning routine: coworker chatter, coffee in some form, emails and checklists. but today, I had a special addition: a gluten-free brownie baked by my niece that she wrapped in tin foil and sent along with her parents to give me last night. breakfast at its best. Thank you @sophi13a; it's super delicious. #fmsphotoaday #morning #working 3d

theurbanhippie I'm super proud of my pineapple upside-down cake. It was my first time baking in a cast iron pot (aka #dutchoven) and it's really hard to count coals and do rotations to make it cook evenly and at the exact temp. But it worked great and the brown sugar on the bottom (or top) didn't burn! #pineappleupsidedowncake #baking #food #cake 5d
  •   sfp4584 I am so impressed! I can't bake one in an oven 😐 like a temperature set and timed oven. 5d

theurbanhippie twenty two // collection // happy campers still win me over. one of my most favorite and heartfelt gifts was the glass beach-happy-camper-camp scene in a jar made by @jeztergrl. most of them are given to me as gifts, but there was one summer when i only tried painting retro campers. #fmsphotoaday #campers #happycampers 1w
