Non-traditional Birthday

by

Jianne celebrated her 7th birthday in a non-traditional way. Instead of having the usual party, we opted to go the other route.

Sowing the Seeds

by

I have longed to have my own veggie garden at home. Ever since the all-natural/organic bug bit me, I wanted to grow my own herbs and vegetables.  Living in an apartment prevented me from developing my green thumb. But when my family moved to our temporary home two weeks ago, which has a big green […] Read more…
