Torrie and Ryan Sessions

Two self-proclaimed foodies, trying to raise little foodies, Torrie and Ryan love to cook together. Love to eat. Love farmers markets. And love growing their own food. They believe that the best tomato is the one that comes from your own back yard… one that’s been nurtured by the entire family- from seed to table.

Torrie and Ryan decided to make the most out of the long southern California growing season, venturing into container- and then raised-bed gardening, through pure trial & error. They’ve been building on their successes, learning from their losses, and getting a little more adventurous each season.

When not digging in the dirt, the Sessions can be found “researching” cocktail recipes, scheming up their next DIY endeavor, and plotting food & wine-centric, yet kid-friendly vacations. In addition to Torrie and Ryan’s Pink Moon Daily gardening column, Torrie blogs at A Place to Share.

Katie Shonsey Mattern

Throughout her life, Katie has always had an innate curiosity about this world and those who inhabit it. She is a former counselor and doula, but these days has found her connection to others through her words and camera. She shares her life in a picturesque Victorian seaport with three very opinionated children, a wayward dog and a patient husband. She believes belly laughs, walks in the woods and the smell of freshly baked bread are some of the best things in life. You can often find her with a smile on her face and coffee in hand.
In addition to sharing her words and thoughtful photography with Pink Moon Daily readers, Katie also writes about her life on her blog Salt+Pine.
