    Welcome~! (in advance) to the sunny land of palm trees and beaches in LA! I look forward to your visit! You’ll likely be dining in fine restaurants but If you’re in the mood for a nice homemade vintage cake, I’ll hook you up in my kitchen. :D (I think you might like the New and Improved Mrs. Lincoln’s Vanilla Almond Pound Cake or maybe Lizzie’s Vintage Cherry Cake with Homemade Maraschino Cherries.) :) Happy travels!

  • Elise

    Have a great tour! Next time put Minneapolis on the list.

  • Frugal Down Under

    Wished you were coming to Darwin – Australia instead. Maybe you did once and I missed it. Lots of people dreaming of a life like yours :) Being courageous, living off the land, being sustainable, relearning old skills and eating good food.

    It was an absolute delight meeting you today at Omnivore Books on Food!
    I will admit that I wasn’t familiar with the blog before, but was taken by the announcement in Omnivore’s newsletter, and am so glad I went. Your passion, sincerity, and perfect articulation of your thoughts and ambition were truly inspiring – on many levels. I’m sharing the word on FB, amongst my many food loving, environmentally invested friends. Thank you for traveling so far and sharing your experience and motivation.

    • rohan

      Thanks Canice! I’m glad you got something from that talk. It’s my whole purpose for coming here is simply to connect with others! It’s a long way to come so when I get a message like yours I’m super excited. Thanks you for taking time out to see me.
