Today is this amazing woman's birthday, she gives so much and never asks for anything in return. Loved seeing her take care of our combined family at breakfast the morning after our wedding like she was floating on air full of strength and beauty. You continue to inspire and amaze me, happy birthday mom.
My first job as a 14 year old was watering plants in a Nursery in Oregon. Before the time of podcasts and iPods I kept myself entertained by reading all the scientific and botanical plant names. Once memorized now forgotten but everlasting is the deep respect and feeling of being home amongst the aromas of the #sfbotanicalgardens a true treasure in the city.
Growing up in the northwest seasons influenced chores from raking wet leaves and mowing a lawn (hand mower of course) to planting bulbs in the fall. One if my joys as a kid was watching the first green blades break through the earth in the springtime and bloom into the variety of colors and smells that was our garden. I still feel the importance of living in sync with these cycles and small objects like this bulb vase are great ways to tune in.
Love these custom layered metal screens with integrated LED light strips. Always a sucker for shadows and colored light - this new dance and lounge space @novacancypdx is full of delights! Design by the talented Jessey Zepeda @zviz_zivz.
Great to see my pal from growing up Oregonian, Jessey of @zviz_zivz, finalizing the design for the new @novacancypdx lounge in SW Portland. DJ booth LED glow syncs with an advanced lighting grid among other details, very impressive.
