Amy’s Kitchen Makes It Easy to Eat Organic

Anyone who has been reading this blog for more than five minutes knows that cooking is not exactly my favorite activity. For me, it's sort of a necessary evil.

DIY Patriotic iPhone Flag Case for Memorial Day

Baby Juliza: Month 4

I can't believe that my little ladybug is already 4 months old! And I realized as I typed that that I will probably say the same thing every month. Honestly though, it feels like the time is just flying by, and she's getting bigger and stronger every day. The past month has been filled with milestones. She's started sleeping through [...]

Still Need a Mother’s Day Gift? Make a Photo Book

My mother is an amazing woman, and I'm thankful that my family and I get to spend as much time with her as we do.

I saw Walmart’s Commitment Firsthand at Sustainability Expo

Anyone who has been reading my blogs or even talking to me casually for more than 5 minutes knows that sustainability is a big deal to me.
