Hello, Sweet Girl

Welcome to the family, Sydney Bristow Maigret. Yours was the first photo I fell in love with online, right after I decided it was time to stop crying about loss and start focusing on gain. I worried, briefly, that people

Quarantine Tip #2: Suddenly realize you aren’t nearly as thin or flexible as you were 5 years ago when you gave up yoga, thinking it did nothing for you. Recognize this as yet another reminder that you are getting older by the second. Panic. Start doing @SarahBethYoga every day, even if you wedge in a 10 minute (FREE!) video of hers after your regular work out. Feel better about yourself and the world as a whole, at least until you read the news. Also, don’t read the news. (her free workouts are between 10 - 30 minutes long and her #sarabethyoga videos can be found on her You Tube channel). Go get, em!
Quarantine Tip #1. Make a delicious drink with very hot water + honey + cinnamon stick + oranges. Throw the oranges in there, rinds, seeds & all. Extra points if you use citrus stolen from a neighbor’s tree and prep on a cheese board make by @boycestudio .#stayathomechallenge #mypandemicsurvivalplan #togetherathome #quarantineandchill ##coronakindness #istayhome #quarantinetips
Sat on the beach for (literally) 3 minutes today & it filled my soul. Then we had to drive away because the police were not allowing anyone to park anywhere & it felt very Police State to me, but I GET IT. This is the new normal, and likely for a lotttttt longer than we think. Yikes.
Pico, Sydney, Ringo, Dove.
I mean, I like LA & all, but....Laguna. Sigh.
Was SO excited to visit @siemonandsalazar ‘s shop and see where all the spectacular magic happens. Have been a huge fan & mini-collector of their stunning hand blown glass vessels & lighting for years now. They are the real deal, and couldn’t have been kinder & more welcoming. AND they donated a gorgeous white lattimo vase to @homedogla ‘s Bowling 4 Paws fundraiser & auction taking place on 3/15. Just a few tickets left - grab em so you can bid on this vase & many more (almost as) fabulous items to help low income families keep & care for their pets. Thank you, S&S for having a heart for humans & animals in need!
Introduced Cousin Chad to Malibu and it did not disappoint. Side note: A surprising number of fellow revelers did seem to be on some kind of hallucinogen which I found to be completely unnecessary since the scenery was already pretty mind blowing, but what do I know, maybe I’m just old. 🤷🏼‍♀️
Happy 50th birthday weekend, @elleaphont ! My love language is a swift kick in the face.
We might have loved the ranch’s 4 Great Pyrenees more than their goats? Check out the love - and the jealousy - when one is paying more attention to the goats - esp the ol’ paw to the crotch move in photo 4. 😂😂😂
THIS IS HOW I HERD GOATS.
Positively MAGICAL day at Angeles Crest Creamery, hiking with the residents on their goat ranch. We did it through @airbnbexperiences and we did not want it to ever end. Thanks, Gloria, for the beautiful time! Can’t wait to return for a stay in your fab airstreams!
Stopped by this incredibly charming & beautiful home store on Montana in Santa Monica. Made me want to be more fabulous & creative. #goals
Not quite as “secret agent-y” as her namesake, Sydney Bristow Maigret is spotted creepin’ on the neighbors.
This babe on the right is blowing my GD MIND.
You guys, my confidence has been low-ish the past few months (Winter Blues? 🤷🏼‍♀️Mid life crisis? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Slow post-holiday workload? 🤷🏼‍♀️ All of the above? 🤷🏼‍♀️) but today, my wicked smart, badass Federal Prosecutor friend @ashbudd called me a genius! This is right up there with the time many years ago that Groundlings & SNL alum @michaelawat called me “Funny Lady” and Jonathan Adler told me I was “Hilarious “. I didn’t get the last 2 in writing, but I do have this one to print out and hang on every wall in my house. 👌
Such fun to hang with @markwork_aro this past weekend. Judging from the look on his face, however, the feeling may not have been mutual. 🧐
Like newlyweds, I tell ya.
I don’t quite know how I captured this photo, either, but YOU’RE WELCOME.
