Spring lately

April Nature Collage

The weather in my parts has been amazing. Spring could not come fast enough for me this year. Usually, I relish in the stormy months since inclement weather is so far and few between in Northern California. But this year, the grey skies and barren landscape was hard to take.

Fairy-Flower-Crown

Just a quick check in as I roll into day three of the flu. It’s rough, my friends. Second time I’ve been hit this season. I’m resting and drinking fluids like it’s my job.

One Clean Thing: Gumdrop Jewelry

PMD one clean thing gumdrop

Let’s face it, there’s no shortage of garbage gift-giving options for little girls. Pop into any big box store and you’ll find rows and rows of cheaply made toys, jewelry and clothing. Most of it is junk, made in China, with poor quality materials and under questionable labor conditions. It’s depressing, honestly. Enter: 100% Gumdrop. Their adorable necklaces are changing the game for girls of all ages. All 100% Gumdrop products are designed in New York City and manufactured in the States.
