threewingedbird Birthday shot by Miss. Natalie So!

I walked in to find a bunch of my absolute favorites, looking down at me from that loft. This is me turning around to Natalie to ask, "Can I hug them?"

threewingedbird All of San Francisco as an "Agriculture Incentive Zone"

I am totally losing my mind over this right now you guys.
Tenants, start partnering with your landlords and make something happen!

Home owners, future home owners, property managers, Californians, gardeners, backyard farmers, educators. Anyone who has a pulse - Push. This. Through.
I promise to not inundate you all too much with this, but ohmygosh. As an urban farmer and someone committed to the education, instillation and propagation of urban gardens in this city and around the world, this is freaking huge.

Let's kick it off, in this fair city.

San Francisco, there is so much to love.

  •   jaymelilli GET EM BOO! 2d
  •   threewingedbird This will mean something for you guys at Project Bayview! @one1savior 2d
  •   lisawuertz I wish Bakersfield would do this, instead I hear they are being uber vigilant about cracking down on things like backyard chickens, rabbits and goats and there are more and more HOA neighborhoods popping up with all kinds of landscaping rules that are not urban ag friendly at all. Bakersfield! Of all places! Where ag is still a major part of the local economy. Ugh! 2d
  •   threewingedbird Lisa, that is so wild and really unfortunate. Yes, especially for Bakersfield. 2d

threewingedbird Started this day off super indecisive/couldn't decide whether I wanted to hike Bernal or up to the Potrero Hill Garden. Ambitiously did both. Was a half hour late to lunch (sorry)! Flashed an entire sidewalk full of people outside of Four Barrel, thanks to the idiot wind. Had my tasty "birthday pastry", half-eaten, blown away also by the idiot-wind. Then got my masala chai knocked out of my hand while giving someone a hug in Taylor Stitch (of all places)... literally the cleanest, best kept, and most expensive shops on Valencia street. Haaaaaaa
So, so far everything's going great. Here is Jason, standing stiff as a board, assuring me not to worry and that he would hold my dress down with his thigh.

threewingedbird Thank you! To whoever the secret genie was that sent me this @grazedotcom package! It's delicious.

What a great startup idea - Wish I would've thought of it first! Anyone want to start a "healthy snacking" company with me?

threewingedbird So stoked to be able to help promote my dear friend and truly one of the hardest working dudes I know - Carlos Leon.

Go check out his website (launched today) and see some of the beautifully handcrafted items he's been creating at his studio in Oakland, Ca.

threewingedbird "Crys, you ever see anyone do pull-ups like this before!?" Hailey, cracking me up as usual. This time using the railings of her top bunk bed to do pull-ups. 2w

threewingedbird Three years ago today my journal entry read like this: "Holy crap I just watched a human person be born." Hailey started her day off like champ. Slept in two hours later than I did, woke up to a balanced healthy breakfast of some of her favorite foods, then played an hour in the sprinklers - in her pajamas.

"Crys, can we play in the spwinklers?"
"...can we put olives on our fingers?"
"can we welax on a blanket?" Yes, you can do all the things.

threewingedbird Twinning! With the ghost of 4th of July centering our photo. We spent all afternoon making red white and blue goodies and sing-dancing in the kitchen. Now BBQ, copious amounts of sun, and a million bug bites. 3w

threewingedbird This, is lengthy.

I met these two lovelies 5 years ago in Nashville, TN, then hitched a ride with them from Nashville to Texas to spend Thanksgiving with my mom and sister (who drove an hour to Dallas-Fort Worth to pick me up from a gas station... Yes, for real). Had the best and most meaningful conversations during that drive. Listened to mewithoutYou and SonsOhia (which were two interests we were floored to find out that we had in common). We were fast friends and continued that friendship when we returned to Nashville, until a few months later when I moved to Germany and they moved to Dallas. Before I left, Amanda gave me a small candle and a hairpin and told me I had to keep them and that one day when we saw each other again, I had to return one of them to her as a gift. We parted from each other with uncertain futures, but an unexplainable and certain premonition that we would see each other again.

Today, on a detour to San Luis Obispo, during a last minute trip to Bakersfield - I ran into Shawn and Amanda at one of my old favorite coffee shops, which Zach and I doubled back to find.
Shawn is now the roaster of said coffee shop. So completely amazed and grateful that we crossed each other's paths on this day. Looking forward to hearing about all the adventures these two have taken over the past five years that lead them here.

What bizarre and beautiful pieces make up this tumultuous journey. I am completely delighted and blessed to be reminded today that my life has been riddled with occasions and wondrous people like these.
Selah.
