|kelly and erik, creators of root simple blog|
and authors of two books!
i had a great time tonight at kelly and erik's
book-signing at vroman's bookstore in pasadena.
they are do-it-yourselfers, and their blog
chronicles their journey toward self-sustainability,
in their very urban neighborhood of
Los Feliz, or is it Silverlake, or it is HaFoSaFo?
(apparently they are right on the boundary).
i've been stalking, i mean reading, their blog
for many months now.
i keep thinking "i can't believe they can do that, or that"
so it was extra cool to be at the book-signing,
and see they are real people, who are funny and nice.
and who are confident enough to show real pictures of a real working garden
(meaning: real gardens don't always look perfect).
i wish i would have taken a pic of them tonight.
but i was too busy mentally getting on board with kelly's
assertion that you really can make your own face cream,
and it's easy, cheap, and eco-friendly.
this is their new book.
makes me wish i had taken home ec in high school,
instead of the agri class.
can't wait to dive into it.
and i'm hoping they will open up their space for a tour.
it is so helpful to see other people's working gardens and get good ideas.
kelly and erik, you rock!
