At the end of last week I got so obsessed with writing this story, I completely ran out of time to post my other gardening mix last week.
Who didn’t think the dandelion was the best flower ever when they were little? They were the best for making flower chains and headbands. You could use them as crayons. If you held one under your chin the amount that it glowed on your skin predicted how rich you would be. And it was insanely fun to blow the all the seeds away into the wind.
If the fact that my last mixtape included tracks from both Journey AND The Backstreet Boys didn’t reveal me to be a huge nerd, then I’m about to blow my cover now: this past April I actually left my apartment in Silverlake – Los Angeles hipster music mecca – and moved completely across town into a house a mile away from the beach. AND I LOVE IT. Yeah, it’s much farther to get to most shows, and a much more painful drive home when I head east on weeknights, but I moved to be closer to my job in Santa Monica and in that regard it’s a total win.
I also love living in a house. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two floors. I love my huge living room and kitchen. I love having a front yard. I love my tiny room, which is almost completely become my own personal magical music happy land. Currently though, I’m especially loving my back patio. I want to paint the walls. I want to buy cute vintage patio furniture. And I want to garden.
