Thank you for your email. Please understand if it takes a few to get back to you. 



I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.


Bottoms Up


Well, I began this week with a bounce in my step and a flip in my hair, but by Wednesday night, I was swinging nothing but a huge box of Kleenex from my fingertips.  Yes, I've been a bit under the weather, wearing nothing but my sweats for the better part of the last 48 hours, watching "Dan in Real Life," drinking buckets of tea and bowls of pho (and perhaps sneaking the last of the Girl Scout cookies).  

BUT, I've also been drinking up my special I Have A Cold And Need To Get Healthy Tonic (or Get Filthy Tonic as I'm sure BC considers it).  The IHACANTGHT drink is kind of like tagging out and letting big, burly Vitamin C Man take over your corner of the ring to kick the holy bejesus out of your cold.  And it completely works, at least for me, in my highly psychosomatic ways.  So I figure I should share, just incase you need a burly C in your future.


3 Carrots
1 medium Beet (or two small)
3-4 hearty Kale leaves
1 Orange
1/2 Lime

Juice all together (for me, I use my trusty Juiceman) and drink it up!  Don't be afraid of the vampirish color, the taste is perfectly sweet and earthy - promise!

Bottoms Up and Back To Bed!
