- Sometimes an uncontrollable feeling of sadness grips us... We recognize that the magic moment of the day has passed and that we've done nothing about it. Life begins to conceal its magic and its art. We have to listen to the child we once were. The child still exists inside us. That child understands magic moments. We can stifle its cries but we cannot silence its voice. #paulocoelho This is speaking to me tonight. I'm not sure if these flowers that I found in Croatia are daisies; their petals grew so layered and bushy that they almost resembled button mums. Daisies represent innocence in the language of flowers. Tonight I'm wishing us all an awakening of our inner child, a return to innocence.

- You have to take risks... Every day, God gives us the sun-- and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy. Everyday, we try to pretend that we haven't perceived that magic moment. It may arrive in the instant when we are doing something mundane... But that moment exists-- a moment when all the power of the stars becomes a part of us and enables us to perform miracles. Joy is sometimes a blessing but it is often a conquest. #paulocoelho May ferns, which hold the meaning "magic" in the language of flowers, remind us that within us resides the magic of the stars.

- "Attitude is the difference between an adventure and an ordeal." --Bob Bitchin Yesterday we noticed it was full-blown fall and enjoyed the fallen leaves in one of Ljubljana's parks on our last day in Slovenia. Today we awoke to snow! Kinda crazy, considering we started our honeymoon wearing Flip flops on a beach town in Sicily a couple weeks ago. It's like we're getting to experience every season on this trip (back in SF we arguably experience barely any seasons at all). We schlepped through watery snow w our cloth luggage and cloth shoes to get to the outdoor bus area and found no bus waiting. It's been interesting to not have phone service-- in this case it meant we had no way of checking for a schedule update. We're in the station now. It's cold but not wet-- a huge blessing! We got coffees and an unfamiliar looking but tasty pastry to treat ourselves, then settled in to wait. I was enjoying "Now: The Physics of Time" by my old professor Richard Muller when my husband said, "It's actually kinda nice [the snow]. I'm going to go take some pictures." And it reminded me of that quote I shared at the beginning of this post. Let's choose adventure.

- Happy Veterans Day to friends back home in The States! Cheers! Here’s a simple but delicious recipe to fold some extra patriotism (in the form of Nasturtium) into your day. Nasturtium is the edible goody with the orange blossoms, which I’ve found grows wild in San Francisco, CA and Tuscany (Italy) alike! It’s perfect for today because it means “patriotism” in the lost language of flowers. Patriot Pesto 1. Prepare a bowl of ice water. 2. Boil water. 3. Boil 2 cups of nasturtium leaves for 10 seconds. Drain. Place nasturtium in ice water until cool. Drain. 4. In a blender, until smooth: nasturtium leaves, 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts, 4 cloves garlic, and 1 cup olive oil. 5. Transfer mixture to bowl and fold in 1/4 cup grated parmesan and 1/2 cup thinly sliced nasturtium stems. I’d love to hear what you think if you make it! Psst- We’ve been putting pesto on our breakfast sandwiches lately.... SOOO delicious.

- In Italy, we experienced the Daylight Savings time change on Oct 29th. (Here I am enjoying the day before the change in Cefalu, Sicily.) Friends and fam back home in California will experience it at 2AM on Nov 5th. Fun facts about Daylight Savings time: 1. Ben Franklin proposed we “save” Daylight by waking up early way before it was ever an accepted concept. He suggested the city wake people up early w a cannon blast! 2. Hawaii, most of Arizona and many of the US’s oversea territories do NOT observe the time change. 3. Asking for more sunlight when temperatures get into triple digits regularly (as they do in Arizona) just doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense, so they opted out. 4. We do it to move an hour of Daylight from the morning to the evening in the summer months... 5. Because it conserves energy... 6. But mostly because people seem to like to have more sunlight in the evening. 7. During the weeks after clocks are set back in the fall (that’s now!) WALKERS ARE THREE TIMES AS LIKELY TO BE HIT AND KILLED BY CARS! 😧 Careful!! 8. Nixing Daylight Savings time in California could be on the ballot in 2018! Where you live, do you enjoy Daylight Savings Time or would you rather not have it?

- Raise your hand if you know someone who is going through it right now. (Maybe that someone is yourself, that counts!) if you’d like to do something to lift their spirits but aren’t Sure what to do, I’d like to make a simple suggestion: Consider chamomile. It means “energy in diversity” and “comfort” according to the language of flowers. It’s blooming right now, so it’s available at a low price in many shops (you can even find it @traderjoes!) And let’s not forget you can find it in tea form pretty much everywhere! And what would it take to make a couple tea bags an uplifting, thoughtful gift? Not much! Get out a pen and fold a sheet of paper into a little card. Write a short note: it could just be the meaning of chamomile and the words “I’m here for you”/”thinking of you”. Come on, you can do it. And I bet you’ll feel good, too.

- I have two amazing ladies I'd like to highlight this #womencrushwednesday. @jezykahmanchego recently started @gypsyyuyos, where she creates small batch herbal remedies for the skin + soul. I swear by the Elderberry tincture and I'm starting to think the floral face serum alleviates blepharitis! @charlotte_sarrache is the kind of kick ass artist who does work that makes people say things like, "She DREW that? BY HAND?? How???" Check out some of her work under @carlotta_saracco. She even sells them on bags and clothes!! (I'm wearing a couple of my faves in the last photo.) And both of these amazing, talented women are going to taking over The Bloom Equation while I'm in Europe on my Honeymoon! Please welcome Carlotta and Jess!
