Something to Talk About: Box Girls

Holiday gatherings with my family were never really quiet. There was always music playing on the stereo and lively chatter around the table. There weren’t many lulls in conversation with our bunch, but I hear about others who struggle with passing the time at gatherings.

Greetings friends,

McEvoy Ranch in Marin County was the stunning setting this weekend for the annual McEvoy Harvest Party. Nestled deep in the Marin countryside, a mile or two from Petaluma, this is the “must-attend” event of the year. I went with my dear friends Lauren Williams and John Peake.

Eco-Friendly Thanksgiving Hostess Gifts

I’ve been invited to spend Thanksgiving with my boyfriend’s family and I want to make a good impression. I’m pretty proud of my apple pie recipe, which I’ve adapted from various cookbooks and I now make using organic flour, butter and sugar. Last year, one of the vendors at the farmers’ market recommended I use a blend of apples I hadn’t tried before and the results were great. So, I’ll make a pie.

Greening of a Fave Fashion Line

When I get complimented on something I’m wearing that’s made of organic cotton or bamboo, I get a big kick out of boasting, “It’s organic!” But only a few years ago, it wasn’t so easy. When deciding to green my life, it was easiest to start with home products (replacing toxic products like Windex and Fantastic with natural ones by Seventh Generation and Method). Then I focused on finding suitable substitutes for beauty products (out with Chanel, in with Dr. Hauschka). My closet? Not so fast. I was pretty attached to my favorite lines and was reluctant to sacrifice my style.
