Whew!

Whew!

Ever have one of those weeks that leave you feeling as though you've been hit by a train?  Yeah...it's a thing, right? So, did I actually get hit by a train?  Nope. It was a new job! Yes, yes, a new job is a good thing!  A very good thing! And, it's also incredibly exhausting to figure everything out!  However, I…

32 Green Books the Littlest Eco-Kids Will Love!

Children have an innate connection to the earth and all of its creatures. They long to be out in nature, to get their hands dirty, explore and use their imagination.

Urban Emergency Survival Plan – Making Emergency Plans

I have a serious question for you today...How prepared are you for an emergency? I mean, really prepared?

Shop Small Businesses, Vote With Your Dollars

Shopping at both small businesses and local businesses has become one of my favorite things to do.  Not only do they usually offer unique, good quality items, I can walk away (from the building or the internet), feeling as good as possible about my purchases!  Why?  Because I know exactly where my money is going!

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce

Cranberry Sauce is one of those things I never thought twice about until just a few years ago. I mean really, what's there to think about?
