Recycle your tree

For me one of the saddest sights post-holiday is seeing Christmas Trees thrown away. There is nothing worse than seeing a Christmas tree lying on its side, in a swale, discarded. Just days ago, this was the symbol of all things happy and good; now, it's browning and bare, a few strands of tinsel where twinkling lights once reflected. What are you supposed to do then, you ask?
RECYCLE YOUR TREE - let it live on as mulch as a thank you for the holiday joy it brought you!
Two ways to do it: Chop it up yourself and spread it around the places you mulch - you'll have Christmas Tree scent wafting from your yard for months!
Or drop it off at a Tree Recycling Location:

It's not always that you see something and it grabs on a visceral level. This did. From the very first photos I saw of Theo & Beau, I was hooked.
Sure, Beau's an adorable little boy and Theo's just the cutest puppy, but it went beyond that; there was something else in these photos that grabbed me by the cockles and began warming.
Mrs. Shyba, mother of Beau (& Theo :) said it best, "Theo and Beau's friendship is 'the most organic and beautiful relationship I have ever witnessed'". The simplicity of babies peacefully at rest, intertwined in innocence and love... it doesn't get much better than that.
I'm so glad Mrs. Shyba continues to share what's become my favorite love story! Enjoy.

To Pierce Or Not to Pierce

When you get ready for work, you probably choose earrings as part of your accessorial accoutrements. While some of you may go the clip-on route, most of you have pierced ears, yes?
Did you pierce your baby's ears? Were yours pierced when you were a baby? Or maybe you were a bit older, grown even, before you made the trek into piercedom.
Just yesterday, I saw this article and had no idea it was such a controversy! There are those who strongly believe piercing one's ears should be put off until the child is old enough to make the decision. There are those who say you make many decisions for your child well before they can make a choice themselves, so why is this any different? What say you?
For many it's a cultural tradition. In fact, lots of babies leave the hospital with pierced ears. There is a safer way to perform the procedure on ...
