My husband are by no means vegetarian (c’mon, bacon amiright?), but we try to be somewhat mindful of where our meat is coming from, and how often we eat it in the name of sustainability. And, depending on who you talk to, in the name of health. So, I’m always on the lookout for some […]Read More Sweet Potato Black Bean Burritos
Oh, the holidays are crazy, always. I dream of a day when my job doesn’t get busier around Christmas (and Easter). Life will always get busier, I don’t need work to add on to it. One small creative item recently, to add to my busy work schedule, my regular volunteering (and board duties) for this […]Read More Yobel International

I recently decided to make some intentional changes (specifically in my yes-saying) to be sure I am doing more of the […]Read More First knit of the year.
It’s garden time again! Due to the traveling we did this spring, I didn’t bother starting any seedlings because they never would have made it.

I’m learning from some of my mistakes this year and utilizing our new […]Read More Hanging Railing Planter
