DIY I want to try


There are always tons of DIY projects I think are great, but these 3 I think I actually might try…


Earth Day Festival – The Ecology Center


We spent our Saturday at The Ecology Center, one of my favorite spots in Orange County. They were having an Earth Day Festival which was so much fun. We fed the chickens, made teepees, block printed, ate acai bowls and free Chipotle, listened to live music, made terrariums, planted squash seeds to take home, among lots of other things. We had a blast. Here are a few photos from the day. If you are local to southern California check out their events page, they have a ton of really cool activities for adults and kids and families. This is not a sponsored post, I am just a huge fan of The Ecology Center and all they do.


Mom Monday {Purple Power}


Happy Mom Monday friends. Today’s post is something very near and dear to my heart. My mother-in-law is one of strongest, most inspiring women I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She also has Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer. Her strength and determination shows so clearly in her launch of Purple Power. The mission of Purple Power is to “eradicate Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer completely, while being the steadfast support and advocate for those diagnosed with this terrible disease.  Daunting?  Perhaps, but one thing is certain, their diligence and faith will move mountains.  Adversity is only a deterrent, if you allow it to affect and disable you.” It would mean the world to me if you would check out her new site, and if you are moved to do so, donate. Unfortunately most of us are touched by cancer whether it is ourselves or our family or friends. She is on a mission to kick cancers butt and with our help I truly believe she can get there. Thanks for letting me share something so personal with you all today.


Friday Fun {futuristic sculptures and fairytale destinations}


Today’s inspiration to-go image is a sculpture by Buckminster Fuller that sits in the middle of the design district in Miami. So captivating, and fun since you can actually walk inside! I spotted this on our recent trip to Miami and thought it made a fun inspiration to-go.
