I believe people love what they don’t grow up around. Or maybe it’s just that they love what they lost. I was a big beach child when very small, and then we moved away from the beach and I’ve been trying to get back to it ever since.

You know why I’m including this photo of the ladybug on these tarragon leaves? Because that’s as feminine as this juice will get.
