The final touches

Clockwise from L: Anthony Neve of Neve Farms, Tribute to Luther Burbank in downtown Santa Rosa, A fresh new haircut from stylist Matthew Benson at Ritual Salon

These stunning red roses arrived at our house today. It’s our second year getting these beauties delivered by Neve Farms. Cut and placed in ribbon-wrapped mason jars, they’re perfect centerpieces for our Summer Garden Parties celebrating Mama beating her brain cancer prognosis. We met brothers Anthony and Alex Neve at the farmers market; we love their flowers and their kind family!

In the afternoon, I got my hair done! I love the shorter, sleeker, blonder look. Many thanks to Matthew and D’nae! After my appointment, I went for a wee walk around downtown Santa Rosa. I adored this statue of poppies with a quote from Luther Burbank: “Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.” How perfectly timed to see this quote today!

Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was a few more final touches before the party! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments! Kindness is Everything.
