A Green Thumb and Back to School

My dream garden...

The vegetable garden at 
Abundance of la Chatonniere, 
where each segment of the leaf is either 
vegetables, herbs, or fruit...

I am blessed with a husband that has a green thumb 
( I know I don't). We added on to our small box planter this fall. Part of our inspiration came from my visit to
 Box Garden Organics in search of some different more gourmet organic seeds. We went a little crazy, and decided we needed more space.

Here are some of the beauties that we purchased...
I am so excited, I hope that they will all do well in our desert climate (they are supposed to). Shopping in Grizz's store was like visiting a candy shop for me :)

And here is our plot... Not quite like Abundance of la Chatonniere, but good enough for me!
We have some sprouts shooting up already, I can't wait!

School is back for us this week,
I always forget what a shock it is to get back into military scheduling. Off to 5th and 8th Grades, I don't know where the time goes...sigh.

I will update on the garden! Are you doing any planting this fall?

Testing the Waters...

Hello out there!

Oh my, I have been gone for such a long time!

Life, it caught up and passed me by for awhile...

And I have been trying like crazy to catch up to it!

I just love the print above, it truly captures who we are, I think. I recently bought 2 cards for my oldest and dearest friends that says :

"Of course we will always be friends.
(We share too many secrets.)"

Old and dear friends might know some of the universe, right?!

Nothing secretive since January that I am hiding though, just the business of life with a business that is booming (and still only one employee, ME), 2 sons that are very active in lacrosse, on 2 different travelling teams ( I never ever thought I would be a sports "Mom"), and the day to day activities that overflow.

I look forward to checking back in and sharing, and visiting some of you dear and kind blogger friends who have checked in with me during my absence.

Have a fabulous day!
