Despite living in a “cold” climate, I’m a warm-weather gal. I love sunshine and can handle heat, raised in one of the hottest, most humid places in America. Don’t get me wrong, I love Connecticut ‘s four seasons; there’s nothin’ like a fall day pickin’ punkins and havin’ cider on a crisp afternoon. But spring here can be fickle – warm or cold. We’ve spent many Easters in snow boots instead of sandals. When Mother Nature recently gifted us with an early, warm Spring, I “sprung” into action. There’s lots to do! Come see what’s on my “Outdoor To Do” list, and pick up some tips!

I love birthdays! I think life’s meant to celebrate the special days, and birthdays are one of those days. I’m not into giant celebrations – I don’t have a big party or go out until the wee hours. I do like to have lunch with a friend, or bake a birthday cake and have a nice dinner with my husband and daughter. But some birthdays are milestones, and the one I’m hitting this month is a big one, so to speak. Have a piece of cake with me as I share what I’ve learned so far…
Life through the eyes of a child is better than rose-colored! They find wonder and amazement in the simplest of things, learning with gusto! Today’s children are indeed the future, and I love that my daughter’s generation is embracing a “greener” thinking than mine did at her age. I’m really proud of my daughter’s school, introducing kids to gardening and composting. I’ve seen first-hand how excited the kids are to be on-board!
