Homemade Natural Granite Cleaner

It’s kind of funny. For as much as I love cleaning, organizing, and diy-ing. . .the task of switching from store-bought cleaners to homemade cleaners felt a bit daunting. Even though the whole process was completely voluntary, somehow the idea of researching everything, making the solutions, and then testing them out was almost too much […]

Saturday / It feels like we are officially ready for Halloween now because we have our pumpkins! The two striped pumpkins will be taking residence by our fireplace as Fall decor (hopefully lasting through Thanksgiving), but those orange beauties are about to be seeded and carved. Because did Halloween really ever happen unless you have […]

thursday notes & links

I am normally a windows open, fresh air, in and out of the house all day kind of girl. But this week the weather has not been my friend. We’ve been pushing 90ยฐ every single day, and the air has been bone dry. Like creating a deficit of moisture dry. So in an unlikely turn […]

Homemade Dried Apple Peels

I am definitely one of the lucky ones, and I really can’t say it enough. Growing up my Mom was the kind of Mom who always put a homemade meal onto our dinner table. She packed our lunches, made us “puzzle” apples, and always made sure that she was filling our tummies with natural, whole […]

Saturday / You know those brisk Fall days when you feel like bundling up, sitting by a fire, and enjoying a warm bowl of soup or a savory pasta dish? Well yeah, we don’t get those days in San Diego. And don’t get me wrong, I love San Diego. But I also miss those chilly […]

Organic Cotton Produce Bags

If you’re at all curious how far we are currently down the rabbit hole of organic, “clean,” and chemical-free just about everything. . .well, we’re really not down the rabbit hole anymore. And no, we haven’t moved into any sort of black hole either. We’ve decided that we are really just in the Bermuda Triangle […]

Saturday / After a few week’s travel break from our local farmer’s market, we returned this morning, and it was absolutely gord-geous. The air was crisp (for us), the sun was shining (as usual), and the produce was definitely looking like Fall’s bounty – squash, pomegranates, apples, persimmons, colorful Swiss chard and pumpkins. As much […]

Umbra Charcoal Recycle Crunch Can

Of all of the things that I would have never thought to be writing about on the blog, recycling bags probably ranks up there pretty high. But here we are on this gorgeously Fall Friday, and yes, I want to talk to you about recycling bags. As you well know, my love for organizing and […]

101 in 1001: The End

If you’ve been reading my blog for long enough, then you probably remember the 101 in 1001 list of goals, dreams and fun ideas that I had created for myself back in 2016. Being the list-lover that I am, after I heard about this idea from a friend of a friend of a friend, I […]

this week’s highlights

Saturday / Yesterday we started traveling back home to San Diego. And unfortunately it did not go as planned. Mother Nature most definitely had a different plan in mind for us. An overnight stop in Phoenix with no rental cars to get home by sort of plan. So to say that I am already missing […]
