Summer mornings

If I could freeze the day right now and have 11 hours of cool summer morning sun, a strong hot cup of coffee, and a crisp cool breeze blowing in through the office window as I bust out the social media for the day……..that would be fantastic. I’ll have that please…yes that would be amazing.

the pig agrees….



just one of my hobbies…

I wanted to show off some of the new designs pulled from my busy mind. I make these cuties as a hobby and like to make peoples ears happy and sparkling. If any of you are ever interested hit me up here or on my sister site or Facebook. “Midnight Travellers Art”

To my fellow Gardeners and Landscapers…we are a different breed. :)

This is the time of year we all look forward to…


Cramming our work pants to the back of the drawer

Stuffing the 5+ work hoodies to the side of the closet

Dusting off our favorite pajama pants, cozy socks and favorite house sweater/hoody

Stocking our pantry with those long missed foods so we can feed our faces when we please…while sitting at a table!  🙂

Tackling the mess that has become of your car that you live out of between your jobs and home

For the ladies….painting your nails and letting them grow!!  dirt free nails….that’s what they look like. and not to mention wearing an actual bra that doesn’t have “Sports” in front of it. (It’s the simple things)

Catching up on some serious couch time with family, and eliminating that long list of “To watch” on your T.V.

Updating your music player…Finally!

Wearing clothes with pockets that are not filled with bark splinters, pine needles, rocks and sand.

Hello Cute Shoes!! 🙂 and Slippers!

Here’s a kicker….actually touching your own yard and getting it to bed before winter…if you have the mojo. We wont judge if it waits until spring. 😉

And last but not least getting that R&R that you have been dreaming about since Mid-July.

We bust our asses all Spring Summer and Fall. Babying weak plants, pruning healthy ones, digging up dead ones, welcoming new additions, watering the world furiously, sharing knowledge with fellow plant lovers, feeding everything tenderly, and patiently watching those little suckers become something beautiful.

We are a different breed…We are unique in so many ways, weird in others, and downright not afraid to get ourselves completely submerged in whatever nature throws our way. We are outside rain or shine, ceasing only when the last plant has kicked the bucket for the winter and lost its head, and the last colorful leaf has fallen.

So here’s to you!


For every Gardener, Landscapers, Planter, Greenhouse workers, Designers, and any one else in this crazy seasonal field. You have deserved this break. May your pants grow tighter by spring. May your body recuperate from the bumps and bruises. May our hunger be satisfied. And most importantly: May your heart be filled with all the love you have been missing over the long summer and fall.

I love my profession and am proud to be a part of this amazing Gardening community.


~Happy end of the Season~

mother, sister, woman

The things we do as women, mothers, sisters, and daughters shape and form the very structure of the path we wall each day. Each block of the foundation is chiseled out of blood, sweat, tears, pain, heartache, sorrow and joy. Holding your child as they quietly weep over their first heart break, and dancing with them when they are happy. Embracing your mother after a long time departed, and feeling like you are home. Laughing with your sister over inside jokes far too loud making everyone stare.

There is so much that is not understood. What I feel on they inside each day. The way I feel when my children hug me. They are growing up so fast. Each day I can see their characters changing. This is my life, I love my life. My kids are such a huge part of me, my happiness, my sanity, my purpose. The responsibility to send these two people out into the world ready for what it holds…good or bad. I’m blessed and thankful each day for the life given to me. As simple as it may be. As hard as it may get. I am here for a purpose that gladly embrace whole heartedly.

Nightly story

“All the fairest beauties in the human soul, its greatest victories, and its most splendid achievements are always those which no one else knows anything about, or can only dimly guess at. Every inner response of the human heart to Love and every conquest over self-love is a new flower on the tree of Love”
