Our Life

Juniper's First Dip in the Ocean

       Juniper got to wear her bathing suit for the first time for an ocean dip in Tomales Bay. We enjoyed the (surprisingly!) warm water and the company of our dear friend Jane and Snorkel Grandma. Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Juniper's 100 Day Celebration on Mt. Tam

The Request:

Hi Friends and Family,

We want to invite you take part in a special celebration for Juniper. She's going to be 100 days old soon, and we're launching her into this beautiful life with the love of friends and family in a unique way that will be magical and meaningful :)

How are we going to do this?!

This is an invitation for you to be part of her life, to join her on her journey as she grows up and forges her own path. How do we plan on doing this? We're asking you to make one promise that Juniper can count on you for when she is older. This may be a skill you share with her, the pledge to spend quality time together, or some other contribution that utilizes your passions and talents. These promises can range from the frivolous to the practical, from the absurd to the meaningful, from the rare to the common. Some examples include: teaching her to skateboard, taking her to work with you, introducing her to a new cuisine, playing her music, reading her a book, learning to whistle, backpacking in the woods, proof reading her resume, helping her with algebra, talking to her about dating, going to a dance class together, road tripping, or .... you get the idea!

Start brainstorming. We'll bring paper to the celebration, and you can write your note to her describing what she can count on you for, and we'll collect them and put them in a box for her to tap into once she is a little older. Bonus points if you want to demo your skillz at the gathering!

Surprise location?!

We've already taken baby on many hikes and she is wide-eyed for nature, and we'll be celebrating on Mt. Tam (exact location is secret and will be sent to those who RSVP). Anticipate walking in about 1.5 miles. Bring a sack lunch and lots of water!

Why are we doing this?!

With a new life in our community, what better excuse is there to celebrate our interconnection, the love we have for each other, and for Juniper!
