I had a great time at a @vanmuralfest tour with my @thriveartstudio ladies. Thanks to @jamiesmithstudio and @dazed.and.confucius for leading this huge group so well.
@vanmuralfest recognizes women are largely under-represented in the mural scene and aims to engage 50% women. (thank you!) All mural artists receive a stipend. Most of the 60 new murals this year were completed in only one week! Thanks to @duluxirl on #mainstreetvancouver for proving the paints and to all the muralists including THRIVE's @sandeepjohalart for beautifying our fair city!

I'm sitting here with a cold beer on a warm summer's eve enjoying my lovely garden. It's in full in bloom and colored by a golden sunset. I'm celebrating some good news and life's simple pleasures. To quote Monet, “I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers,” he said. “My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece.” Thanks to my green-thumb Mom for helping me make this beautiful garden. It inspires (and feeds) me daily. Thanks @ralphsrelish for the tips, and @tlferns for the happy sunflower! How does nature nurture your life? #garden #thegoodlife #artistsquotes #monet #florals #botany #botanist #monet #beauty #nature #yay #family
Fireworks! 🎉Japan killed it tonight... 😀and from this location?! Wow! Do you like fireworks? Afterwards, we had an interesting discussion on what keeps us coming back to see fireworks when they are basically the same each time. What keeps you coming back? #vancouver #fireworks #celebrationoflight #japan

[Repost] Hail, caesar! I'm glad I followed my hunch today and had an unexpected lunch at @eternalabundance. I ran into two lovely people at the water cooler--a friend and my brother! What a nice surprise! And the walnut sushi and kale caesar 👍 MMM... #vancouver #eastvancouver #commercialdrive #vegan #glutenfree #eatclean #intuitiveeating #gratitude

Wondering what to do with all your summer basil? Make a delicious pineapple basil smoothie! Pineapple, coconut milk, chard, flax, almond milk, basil (just a few leaves--I used 5 for a 3/4 full Vitamix), rind of half a lime, banana and raw cacao. Whatever needs fixing, this bevie will do the trick. And you can feel like you're on a tropical vacay. How nice is that?! #basil #smoothie #pineapplesmoothie #eatclean #vegan #deliciousness

I'm loving my new @tovolous twin popsicles! Homemade frozen treats are the best! Raspberry-lime at the back, orange creamsicle with strawberry purée drizzle in the front. Vegan, naturally sweet...and deeelicious, summer fun!

What Water Says
By James Bertolino
Leafless aspens groom
the iced breeze, while below

a brook descends the mountain
with its musical story, remembering

the serenity of sky, and lightning’s clear passion.
Water knows what is far will be near.

Water says choose that which closes distance,
choose touch. When snow falls

and a green mystery is carried
by all that moves,

choose love.

Oh. MY! This is good. Had to share! Vegan, gluten-free and totally addictive. Smooth a little @spreadem_kitchen jalapeño-lemon cashew cream cheese on a rice cracker and top with cilantro tomato salsa. You will thank me later.
