For Your Weekend

Redwood Grove Davis Arboretum

One step at a time…that’s how my son conquered the felled redwood at the UC Davis Redwood Grove last week, and that’s how I’m approaching things right now. A harvest festival, marketplace, and sweet “Enchanted Path” Halloween celebration are on tap for Friday, plus soccer and, of course, trick-or-treating on Saturday, and then probably rain on Sunday. The rain might be the perfect excuse to finally check out the Dia de los Muertos exhibition at the California Museum.

I have a charity announcement coming soon, one I’m very excited about, so please come back to find out more. In the meantime, here are my favorite links from the web this week:

    It sounds like you have quite the nice weekend planned Jenna! Thank you again for adding one of my articles to your roundup. Lately I feel as though I have been very fortunate to meet so many people who are doing great things in Tuscany, and they are so young — these ‘modern’ artisans are inspiring to me and I really want to help share their stories. Ps. regarding moldy pumpkins.. I should have read those tips for the past three years! That always happens to me..
