Reflections on the year are inevitable, for me at least. This morning my mind is flipping through, like an out-of-control Rolodex, all that this past year has offered me. (more…)

Favorite Trees of 2014

On this eve of Christmas, from The Shady Tree, to you, a huge thank you! The Shady Tree is not yet a year old, but I can’t believe how much it has grown. All of your lovely comments, encouragement, guidance and support, honestly, it is an incredible force. There are almost 300 of you, wow. And, my inspiration to write and share in this space grows with each passing week.

I am looking forward to continuing the conversation into the New Year…see you there!
