flowers & food for thought

March 16, 2012

I was walking outside to get some fresh air earlier this week, and of course I noticed all of the gorgeous spring flowers blooming.

but to me, the best part of this garden is the row of dirt. it’s literally an empty space to create something beautiful. and figuratively, we have rows of dirt in our lives as well. sometimes we just need to do a little spring cleaning to find them.



green (and otherwise colorful) food for nourishment:

food for thought:

*edited to add – my smoothie recipe was featured on the lululemon blog:

my goodness, my green smoothies


are you celebrating St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow?

St. Patrick’s Day is widely celebrated in Dallas with a 5K race, parade, concert, etc. (last year’s recap post.) I’ll be working part of the day, then joining Billy at a friend’s party in the afternoon. I need to find something green to wear.

is there an area in your life where you can make some space to create?

Love love cinnamon too. I keep a container in my drawer at work even. I definitely feel like it’s time to do some spring cleaning and planting.

Clicked on that “runner’s to-do” list without even thinking! Hah, my legs will need some TLC after this weekend…

Spring cleaning is underway! We’re cleaning up quite a few things over here, and I can’t wait to make room for some plans… :)

I have ALWAYS wanted a window box, ever since I became an ‘apartment dweller’ and think this year might be the year for it. My little slice of green. :)
