It’s a New Day
Hi friends. Following a bit of a self-imposed sabbatical, the time has come to announce a few changes around here. I launched Pink Moon Daily in May 2012 with six exceptional contributors – Melissa McArdle, Torrie and Ryan Sessions, Dayna McLeod, Danielle Copeman and Katie Mattern. These ladies (and gentleman) gave their writing, their thoughts and their photography skills to this community with open hearts. I am forever in their debt for supporting the mission of providing invaluable information, inspiration and guidance on living a healthy lifestyle. So first and foremost, thank you to the team for sharing their generous insights and experiences. And thank you to our readers who supported the site, left comments and sent emails.
The site continues to evolve and my focus remains true to living a healthy life, free from toxic chemicals and rich with organic food, sustainable practices and environmentally-friendly choices. The Pink Moon Daily contributors continue to publish on their personal websites listed below. I hope you will follow along their personal journeys, as well as return here for updates from my own life. I’ll continue to post at Pink Moon Daily about all things clean, green and natural, as well as the occasional peek into my life.
The PMD All Stars
She is a master of many crafts – baking, creating and sewing – just to name a few. She’s a mother to two beautiful girls and navigating the turbulent waters of raising kids with allergies. In addition to sharing the occasional inspired DIY project, Danielle brings us delicious, family-friendly recipes free from nuts, and eggs. She can also be found on her blog Domestic Dish and at her Etsy shop Dandelion Goods, where she sells beautiful and stylish leather goods made from reclaimed remnant fabrics.
With a one-word mantra of bliss, Melissa makes it her daily goal to find the blissful beauty in life’s most simple offerings. A believer in “you are what you eat”, healthy food is an essential must for every meal. A yogi, a gypsy at heart, and a proponent for small artisans and artists around the world, she fills her waking hours with daydreams of a happy, healthy, free-loving world and truly believes these dreams will one day become a reality. She can also be found on her website Reverie-Daydream.
As a trained chef and proud mom, Dayna has been preparing exceptional meals for the world’s most elite celebrities. Her inspired culinary creations have graced the plates of many celebrities. However, nothing makes her happier than watching her 4 year-old daughter devour a healthful serving of organic fruits and veggies from Santa Barbara’s local farmers market. Most recently, Dayna was recently named a Food Ambassador, standing up for read food for children with Jaime Oliver’s Food Revolution Day.
Dayna can also be found writing about food and sharing her original recipes at her blog A Vegan Chef.
Torrie and Ryan Sessions
Two self-proclaimed foodies, trying to raise little foodies, Torrie and Ryan love to cook together. Love to eat. Love farmers markets. And love growing their own food. They believe that the best tomato is the one that comes from your own back yard… one that’s been nurtured by the entire family- from seed to table.
Torrie and Ryan decided to make the most out of the long southern California growing season, venturing into container- and then raised-bed gardening, through pure trial & error. They’ve been building on their successes, learning from their losses, and getting a little more adventurous each season.
When not digging in the dirt, the Sessions can be found “researching” cocktail recipes, scheming up their next DIY endeavor, and plotting food & wine-centric, yet kid-friendly vacations. Torrie blogs at A Place to Share.
