Welcome

I am the mother of two preschoolers and, with the kiddos now in preschool, I have finally come up for air. As a teen and college student, I cared passionately about the environment - sneaking into Safeway to put dolphin-free stickers on tuna cans and writing representatives about old growth forests. Somehow, in the blur of graduate school, establishing a career and parenting toddlers, I forgot all about this planet we call home. When I re-emerged on Earth Day 2007, I was surprised that so few changes had been implemented since I was a passionate advocate 20 years ago. And embarassed that I too had disregarded all the changes I had previously advocated. Well, I'm back!I'm busily implementing low impact living changes in my pod and hope this blog will help me stay on track and maybe even provide some amusment or motivation to anyone who stumbles upon it.

Your story sounds very similar to my own. How did we stray so far away from our original youthful ideals? But it's great to be back, isn't it?

Your blog has been on my "To Read" list for a while every since I discovered you through Burbanmom. Loving what I'm reading so far and looking forward to more!

Beth,

Thanks for visiting! It is so strange how I could just "forget" everything that I so strongly believed in. I don't think I ever stopped believing - just paying attention. It is wonderful to be back. :)
