My favorite little tradition. Happy Labor Day weekend, friends!
Missed my first venture into Project 333? It’s here. Read about my Summer 2014 picks here. Halfway through another Project 333 wardrobe, and I’m still loving it and learning so much! A few things I’m discovering I’ve pretty much lost the desire to shop. Crazy, right? I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a shopaholic by… Read More Project 333: Summer 2014 Halfway Point

A few years ago, my husband and I read Michael Pollan’s book Food Rules and watched the documentary Food, Inc. I’d been eating pretty healthily for a while, but I was spending a fortune on organic everything, and I was having trouble reconciling purchasing something organic with the fact that it had been flown 4,000 miles… Read More CSA Box: August 4
