Be informed

Forbes published a great article called Girls For Sale. (click on Girls for Sale to read the article)Or go look it up!

It is about how our girls in America are being sexually exploited, what that means, and how you can make a difference. They interviewed Rachel Lloyd. I had the opportunity to attend a training that she lead on the Commercial Exploitation of Children a couple of years ago. It was very informative and life changing. She is an amazingly brave and articulate woman with a huge heart. Please take the time to read it! Then go watch the documentary that is mentioned in the article. It is worth your time!

Bear with me....

Bear with me while there is a short hiatus on my blog. That bad cold followed by the busyness of the holidays left me with little time or energy to blog. But I have lots to blog about;

The chickens have finally picked up on egg production. We got six eggs yesterday! Woohoo!! Six eggs are way more fun to collect than one!

Our winter garden harvest! Swiss chard, tat soi, carrots, Chinese cabbage and sugar snap peas. Oh my! Currently much of that goodness is turning into Kim chee. I will let you know how that goes!

In January I am going to makeover my office/ guestroom. I am excited about it! I can't wait to fix it all up and have a nice simple space.

And this weekend we are going on a cruise!! Woohoo!! I am sure that there will be lots to share from that! Before we leave I have to deal with all of those vegetables, clean house, cook a ton, undecorate from Christmas and pack my bag. I can do it!

Happy New Year friends! Let's make this a good one!
