Good Things: food & art

One of my favorite things about being home is getting to make my own lunch. You may not realize it but traveling all the time is exhausting and finding truly healthy food is much harder than it should be. Today I'm having tuna salad with greens from nationally recognized Sweet Water Organics (located just down the street from us) and a cold curried garbanzo bean cabbage salad I whipped up last night. YUM.


Also there is only 4 days until the art sale fundraiser for the gulf hosted by Meighan from My Love For You begins. I am drooling over a few of the previews Meighan posted already. Sales like this stress me out because you never know if you are going to get the piece first.....

To explain clearly about the sale, from the desk of Meighan herself:

Julianna Swaney.

My Love for You and 87 artists (at last count) and print shops have joined together to donate their work to help raise money for The Gulf Restoration Network. Original artwork, limited edition prints and more will be available for purchase on Monday, June 28th at 12 pm PST (3 pm EST) through the ML4U Big Cartel Shop. 100% of the proceeds will go to help support The Gulf Restoration Network's efforts. Many of the items are free shipping to boot! The Shop will be open for one week. This is a great opportunity to acquire amazing art, while helping a just cause.
