Day 34.1: Garden Tip — Go Native

Monarch butterfly caterpillar, how cool is that? Oh and be sure to plant some milkweed!

So, a couple of days ago, I mentioned I wanted to plant a garden. I’m pretty much an earth mama too, buy Organic everything when I can get it so when I read this article on the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center’s FB page about planting native plants around the garden, and how beneficial (with concrete examples) it is, I got quite giddy! The native plants drew the pests away from the garden, and housed pest eaters like wasps and toads!

I’ve been slowly adapting the yard to native plants, but this is incentive. Please go read this article! I think that no matter where you live, you can adapt your plants!

Geez Louise, do we all go through this garden phase when we hit a certain age? Or is it the wisdom that happens to come along at a certain stage in life?

Day 35: Why We Should All Sing Along With Colbie

This theme has been circling within my blog-sphere a lot lately and I’m thrilled with Colbie Caillat’s new song, “Try.” You just have to like you. You shouldn’t have to try to please others for your own self worth. Why do we do that? I’m happy to say, that I don’t like being heavy, so I’m changing for me (admittedly, because I compare myself to others a lot… but mostly because I wanna rock the tennis court, and mountain bike… and…), but I’m perfectly happy running around without make up. I still feel like a light smattering is appropriate for work days, is that wrong? Something to ponder. I love the women in this video! Enjoy!


This one is going to stay with me. We should all be singing loud and proud!

Read this interview with Colbie and find out what inspired her to do this song. Thanks Elle Magazine.

From the 99 degree heat in the yard, to the computer to blog… it’s just me!

Be You. Love You!
Be You. Love You!
