Nature and Nurture

Today we leave for the extended holiday weekend to visit family on the farm.

I LOVE visiting my family’s farm and so do my boys… a slower pace, our family around, being close to nature and the marvels of her beauty, farm life is a blessing unlike any other!

The Farm

Speaking of nature… when we come back it will be April 1st (no, I don’t do any April Fool’s pranks sorry) but no foolin… starting April 1st I will be asking the WORLD to participate in a month-long focus on the environment, our eco footprints and our service to humanity and our earth in honor of two special events: Earth Day AND International Mother Earth Day on April 22nd and Starbucks “Global Month of Service” happening all April long.


1 Year Of My Life Earth Day Challengera

My challenge is hosted on the International website Challengera.com and comes with a GREAT Starbucks gift to the winner!  So go check out Challengera.com this weekend, sign up and start thinking about how YOU can help make a positive impact during the month of April with your service to humanity and/or our earth.

The challenge is easy… just sign up on Challengera.com and submit your image, song, audio recording, video, poem WHATEVER you think depicts being Green, Eco, Environmental or basically a steward of the earth and the winner will be posted on April 22nd.

I will also be posting images of my month-long challenge on Challengera.com during this time… what’s my challenge?  To save ALL of my containers from all the items I purchase in April to see just how much waste is created and how much can be recycled!  I will be adding to this eco-footprint collection the secondary challenge to try and LIMIT my packaging as much as possible for the whole month!
