Hey friend!

 

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods! Here in NY, it's been stormy and hot... I could go on but who wants to listen to anyone complain about the weather?

 

Ok, I digress... I do have to let you know that the storm we had on Thursday didn't treat our roadside stand too well. I wasn't expecting it to be permanent but I didn't anticipate needing to rethink it so early! That being said, after I cried a few tears I got myself together and came up with a plan! Keep an eye on Instagram stories this weekend to see what I have up my sleeve!

Shortly after I cut two dozen of this, someone stopped and asked to buy a dozen. Small town culture like that is what I live for!

While we work on getting things back up and running, you can purchase out sunflowers at Blue Bird Home Decor in Schenectady. Nicolle is easily one of my most favorite people and I'm so excited to have them in her store! While you're there, tell her I said hi!

If you would like to carry our flowers at your location, please don't hesitate to reach out! The joy of flowers is sharing with all of you!

So about the science thing...! When I said I got passed my roadblock situation, I meant it! This week a new post went live and it was a fun one. As a parent, it's always a good feeling to know that how your raising your kids is supported by science... especially when the world can get a bit chaotic.

 

We all know that behaviors are developed at a young age and are usually reflective of our upbringing. Dr. Jack Gilbert of Dirt Is Good conducted research on the difference between Old Order Amish and Non-Amish farm children and the results are intriguing. He was kind enough to have his team share my post on the Dirt is Good Facebook page. Go check it out and give his page a like! Digging deeper, I'm even more convinced that the homestead and self-sufficient lifestyle is the key to survival on our planet.

Early agriculture exposure associated with health benefits later in life

I was also featured in a round-up article on the Improve Her Health website regarding inspirational books for women in science. The complete list is full of some really great books but I may be a bit biased to my choice, Silent Spring by Rachel Carson. I literally keep the book on my dresser!

We did it! We made it to the end! This is clearly a reminder that I need to write to you more!

Enjoy your weekend and remember to #LoveTheLifeYouLive,
