Citrus is said to aid our immune systems. From oranges to lemons and grapefruits, I love the colors as much as the flavors. @halfbakedharvest has an amazing immunity boosting smoothie that blends them all plus a touch of turmeric and ginger. Find the recipe through my #linkinbio, cheers!⁠

As we all hunker down over the days to come I see a lot of @pinterest scrolling, cooking and organizing in our future. Life is sort of normal around the ranch and I’m grateful to be in the boondocks, mindful of and prayerful for those who are in the urban hotspots. ⁠

In the meantime I am sharing my thoughts over on the site and enjoying a bit of armchair travel, grateful for once NOT to be packing my bags anytime soon. But when I do…I am thinking a trip to @mezzatorrehotel (photographed here by @lucylaught) in Naples looks like a gorgeous spot. How are you all coping with the state of things?⁠

There is just so much we just don’t know, and If we ever needed a reminder, we surely have it now. Buddhists say cultivating “Don’t Know Mind” is a path from fear to hope, possibility, and higher consciousness. I hope you might take some comfort in “Finding Relief in a World of Panic”, blog post.

Like a beautiful, sunny melody, I can’t get this image out of my head. It could be the South of France or the North of Italy, but in fact it is the Southern California home of Brooke and Steve Giannetti, complete with menagerie of miniature farm animals that are adorable beyond belief. Goats! Donkeys! Shaggy Highland cows!  I was honored to write about Patina Farm a few years ago for @verandamag , and the Giannettis have become friends. Just the other day some we had a girlfriends’ lunch at the farm and it was so great. Swipe for a few more pics, and go to my link in bio to see more of Patina Farm. Everywhere you look is a picture! Beyond inspiring!

Woke up dreaming of summer days by the pool at Bee Cottage, balmy evenings in the garden and cocktails with friends. ​Loved every minute there, and love now that someone else is loving it 😉 The Bee Cottage Story will be with me always. Thank you all again who supported me in that journey and showed love for that little book. Six printings and still going…⁠

Protection from Cologne-a virus. The man in seat ahead of me has totally overdone the Chanel No 5 and I was being asphyxiated… and then I just gave up. It’s hard to breathe in these things… but thank you again for parting with your precious supply @ dear Steph!

Happy Birthday today to our darlin’ fabulous mama, who would come back from the grave and snatch me baldheaded if I told how old she would be. This beautiful pastel portrait is by talented dear friend @maureentoneill11 whom Mama loved. Maureen said this image just came to her one night, not long after Mama died in 2005, and she captured it. It is one of my favorite portraits of her, and I treasure it. Am thinking today too of so many fabulous ladies Ive been lucky to have had in my life who have recently left this earth – @cariboo24 @ninaggg among them. Though I imagine they are up to something, wherever they are. @duvallfuqua

Living in wine country it’s natural that I am often asked about my favorite wines. To which I say red, white, and rosé. Haha. But srsly: In tonight’s glass? A sumptuous Syrah, by our great friend Andrew Murray, @amvwine. ​Cheers!⁠
