Preparing my Earth for Spring >>>

 Yesterday before the show, I spent some quality time outside in my backyard, and broke my first sweat of the season!  It felt so good to play in the earth.  I went rock hunting outside my fence for garden border rocks.  I pulled a million spiky dandelions (not the wonderful kind you can eat), I rearranged my pots and prepared spots for spring gardening.  By the time I was done I was drenched in sweat and had dirt on me from my face to my toes.  I didnt want to shower, but I had to... ha ha.  And of course Bella and Violet helped me along the way.  I definitely felt more grounded after spending this time with the earth. 



  1. What a perfect way to spend the day! I'd love to start a garden in my backyard, but my crazy puppy is going through a digging phase right now...


  2. You know this is right up my alley, I was looking forward to hearing about you starting your garden! Yay for you!!!

  3. i love how you own it: 'my earth'. beautiful. spring is my favorite season. i still love my fall, and winter too ...ok everything but summer. you know...summers in texas? but this is lovely. can't wait to watch it bloom.

    Even if it's just temporarily, gardening is very grounding and healing ..happy digging!

  5. That sounds amazing! I think I could really use a good gardening day and just get down and dirty. It does the soul some good!

  6. Love your instagrams! Spring is my favourite time of the year!

  7. I just found your blog, and I'm really liking a few things in particular:

    -My sisters name is Laura
    -Your blog isn't white
    -All the little native touches like feathers ... I spent two summers on a reservation in SD
    -You have (what I think is) an American Eskimo dog ... I think they are adorable.

    I'm off to check some of your diy projects. :) And to follow your blog.

  8. Gardening always makes me feel connected to the Earth and just awesome! I can't wait for spring to hit here...

  9. Hurray. I can't wait to do some gardening. Although I don't know how much time I'll have to do it because the wee-one will be born. Then again that will also trap me at home...


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
