I am in love with dirt. I totally caught the gardening bug! The past few days I’ve been hard at play…outside…enjoying the sun, digging in the dirt, sifting, raking, and contemplating the amazing things about life. For instance, the daffodils. There is a huge pile of heavy rocks, and some how those daffodils found their [...]

Remember when you first met? Things were great, and there was a list of things you just loved about him. Maybe you liked that he’s active, knows how to have fun, and also knows how to relax. Whatever it is, [...]
Our world is facing a crisis of epic proportions. There is a saying – time heals all wounds. If that were the case we wouldn’t be the most in debt, obese, addicted, and medicated adult cohort in US history. So what’s the problem? Oh, oh, I know, I know, pick me teacher!
