Owl Moth?

I am always finding these amazing guys in mornings in the summers
when I go out to fold laundry that has been hung to dry outside.

His awesome little precious face looks so much like an owl to me...an owl moth?
Does anyone have any idea what kind of moth this is, I can't find a match up anywhere!?

The Northstar Diner

Our little city has ONE vegan restaurant, just one,
but the one we do have is all we need because this place is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

If your ever in my neck of the woods, check them out, you won't regret it & will likely get addicted,
We go weekly almost, it's become a haven for us...kind choices + kind eating=healing of the world!

Make Good Choices

Cruelty-Free products are the only way for me, it's sooo important to me
and I've 100% been trusting my hair to this hair dye for years now...

It's natural and cruelty-free...why should bunnies or any animal suffer for our beauty?!
Testing on animals is the opposite of beautiful & what's done to them is sickening & grotesque,
BUT the beauty market is a horrendous evil for millions of animals every single year.

Don't be part of the torture & make sure your making an effort to buy cruelty-free too.
It's so so easy, just look for 'Not Tested On Animals" or the leaping bunny
or check the list here if your not sure.

Bambu Coffee Substitue

I am a coffee addict, no doubt about it, especially when I am having a rough day,
I just want a huge sugary soy latte to soothe away the crap, emphasis on the sugary!!! 
BUT I know my body doesn't like it & I've really been making more of an effort to listen to my body.

So I've been slowly replacing my big caffeinated coffees with this acorn/fig substitute from Bambu,
with lots less sugar....not every day is a success, I admit that!  But it's a work in progress.

Have any of you tried it?

Summery Days

Memores of summery days...

Pink Rabbit

I don't think I ever showed you this guy but at the beginning of summer
I did this cool leaping pink bunny that I started using on my website.

and whiles my website is currently undergoing another new update, especially the shop section,
he is going to stay for quite a while I think.

Sweet & Simple

I try to let the simple & sweet things in life tickle my heart pink as often as possible...
snuggles with Yuuji is a sure way to do so...

or enjoying pink vegan cookies with golden sprinkles made by your gorgeous vegan man...

or watching that sweet vegan man snuggle your sweetest heart is a sure fire route...

So so many small, sweet and simple things in a day to pick up a heart, soooo many.
What's some of your favorites??

Deck Painting

One of our very first projects this past Spring was repainting the two decks...

As you can see Flynn was the boss, inspector & foreman for the painting of his kitchen deck.

and with the rotation of buns all throughout the daytime, we had to get the back deck painted at night!

Airabella In Progress

I started a new little character named "Airabella".
She owns her own empire from organic lavender fields (her success due largely to her bee friends)...

She's one of the last few characters I need to finish up for what I hope will be a self-published book.

Silver Sweet Linings

Whew that was a rough bout! Ugh.  This migraine life might suck big time...BIG BIG BIG TIME!!!

But one thing that doesn't suck about it are these sweet sweet faces that wait for me to get better!

The Best Shirt

Higgins thinks that his Daddy's new shirt it pretty darn cool...

I didn't realize when I bought it that the bun looked so much like Higgy ha ha!

Ah Winter

Ahhhh loonnggg Winter days are here and I love them soooo much....
I love Spring & summer & especially Fall but having buns outside in those seasons is very stressful.

Winter days means no distractions or chores outside
except for snow play & shoveling leaving more time for bun snugs.

More time to organize, clean & enjoy the house,
especially when we get to stay warm & cozy inside.

More time to fill the oil diffusers with favorite oils & just more time to take care of my sore body!
Ahhhh yes, just a few reasons why I love Winter...how about you?

There was also awesome vegan dessert & soup devoured, movie watching, nap taking ahhhh...
Just our kind of weekend, hope that you enjoyed yours as well XO

My Breakfast Smoothie Go-To

So I mentioned in my last post that 2018 kicked my ass physically
and I will touch on that more in another post but my body really needs tender loving care
now more than ever so one of the best things I do for myself is to give up
my usual beloved morning soy latte and start my day off with a health smoothie instead!

I have never been one for breakfast, I am often not even hungry until 3 or 4 in the afternoon!
But drinking this smoothie is easy
(as long as I don't take to long because the oats thicken it up quickly).
I've been asked about what I include, so here is my usual go-to concoction:
organic unsweetened soy, fresh fruit, preferably organic, parsley, cucumber, lettuce, spinach,
banana, raw oats, cocoa nibs (sometimes), peanut protein & chai seeds.  If you give it a try, Enjoy!

2019 Here I Come

Hey you guys...

How's the New Year looking for you?

Are you a resolutions type of person?

I sure am BUT ya know this new year
I am not going to list them,
my list is feeling hopeful but perhaps delicate as well,
so because of that I am going to, for now anyhow,
keep things close to my chest &
we can see things unfold as the year takes shape yes?  YES!!

I can tell you that my plans do include art, art & more art and bunnies, bunnies and more bunnies &
ultimately just being kinder to myself because 2018
was a year that physically kicked my ass!

I already have tons of new images prepped on the page
& in my head and I am super excited to get back to the studio
after a long two weeks of holiday rest.
I am ready to push myself as much as my body &
the bunnies allow me to!

I know one thing for sure right now though,
I won't let Instagram take me away from my blogging time anymore
and 2019 will see me pushing away the drama & shit
and it will find me focusing and zoning in on my unique happy.

 How about you?
