What should you do with your old smartphone? Save the rain forests of course!

About a year ago, we decided that my then current smartphone was no longer worth using as a phone. Frankly, I was afraid that if I needed to dial 911, I wouldn't be able to. So I got a new phone for my birthday, and hubby decided that he would [...]

My New Obsession, Permaculture

I'm sure no one is keeping track, but my blogs have become quite sporadic of late. The lack of writing is certainly not without reason, though. I've been studying. And planning. In this post, I talked about how I want to change the world. I don't want to change the [...]

Choose to Enjoy It

I am extremely lucky to be vacationing in the Black Hills this week, but perhaps even luckier to have found a gem of wisdom while here. Yesterday morning, my husband and I were outside the hotel with Forrest. Something about having a baby seems to open up conversation with about [...]

Use Your Dreams to Stay Sober

Image courtesy of http://kickofjoy.com I've all but started a completely new life since then, and some things are easier left unsaid. You know, it's easy to make a good impression when certain pieces of your past are left out. But we all have our demons, and I'm happy [...]

Cleaning a Bathroom the Easy Way (and without chemicals)

My working past is rich in cleaning experience. None of it until the past few years was without toxic chemicals, but I did learn some fun techniques that still make things easier. The bathroom is my least-deplored room in the house to clean, maybe because I don't have to vacuum it. [...]

An Anniversary Shoutout

Tomorrow will mark two years since my husband and I traveled to the beautiful state of Hawaii and joined each other’s hands in marriage; and instead of writing a personal letter this year, I decided it would be more fun to shout it from a virtual mountain top. Husband, you [...]

Why I Stopped Wearing Makeup

I learned a few things in high school. I learned algebra. I learned chemistry (just kidding). I learned the definition of viscosity. And since I'm a woman, I also learned that in order to go out in public, you must "put your face on." For at some point in history, [...]

Life Is About the Journey, Not the Destination

Finally, I heard the bell -- that beautiful, beautiful bell. The ringing continued to vibrate deep into my little body as I shook with exhilaration. School was over for the day; I was free at last. First grade is hard. Much harder than kindergarten. I am most certain that this [...]

Being Green

For today's post, I thought it would be fun to list the things we do to minimize our impact on the environment. Hopefully I can give you some ideas you may not have thought of yet. Many of these items fit in more than one category, so I just picked [...]

How to Conquer Irritation

Annoyances. Aggravations. Irritations. We all have them. We all get annoyed. Some suffer from few grievances, while some have peeves streaming out of their ears, ready to jump out of their chairs at the sound of a co-worker clicking his pen or the sight of a grammatical error. But why? [...]

When I Found Buddhism

It was around 2009 when I started longing to belong to some sort of group. I was no longer Christian, but I missed belonging to a congregation. I didn’t need a group of people or a religion in order to be a good person. I learned morals growing up, and [...]

The Three Poisons and Their Antidotes

A few years ago, when I was just starting to study Buddhist philosophy, I learned about the three poisons and their antidotes in this documentary. This concept immediately clicked with me and has been a part of my daily thought process ever since. The three poisons are the root of [...]

Parents Should Hug Trees. And compost.

One evening my husband and I were at a child’s first birthday party. The house was packed with stylish mommies and daddies, family, and family friends. We wove a delicate tapestry as we slid between one another to mingle and sample the hearty buffet. I was pregnant at the time, [...]
