Happy Girl is making American great again!

Sometimes I wonder how I got so into halloween.  Then, I string all of the effort together and see that this time of year really needs a lot of celebrating.  We are settling into autumn and the darkness and the rains (YAY for rain).  Harvesting giant orange globes on a hillside with an ocean view is a really nice way to nourish the soul during dark times.  Jumping off of bales of hay and then bringing these beautiful pumpkins and gourds to decorate and bring joy.  Making ghosts out of sheets and scarecrows.  Planning events for the community to gather...

An inspiring trip to Marfa, TX

Sometimes you just need a little perspective!A group of friends decided to gather in Marfa, Texas for a 40th birthday. We all treked out to West Texas which is really one of the most sparsely  populated regions in the US and it is hard to get to from everywhere.  I had very little expectations from our trip out here, but have gained so much inspiration I feel the need to share. Donald Judd moved to Marfa in the 70's and his collection of artwork has made this town famous.  One man fell in love with the landscape and architecture of this remote and...
