If I wanted to make it sound official I could say "the board of directors declared an emergency meeting to discuss growing environmental concerns..." Really, I just played hookie to take my kids to the park.
One of my daughter's favorite activities on the way in or out of the park is to pick "sunflowers" for Mommy. Not really sure how dandelions became "sunflowers," but it always make me chuckle imagining a 4 year old actually trying to carry a 5 or 6 foot tall sunflower!
Of course, as a parent, I couldn't resist taking a picture of the bouquet along with my turquoise ring to capture a memory of 3 things I love: my daughter, making jewelry and flowers.
I hope you can find small ways to include the things you love in your day.
P.S. This turquoise ring isn't for sale, but if you like turquoise you should check out some of the other offerings in my on-line store. Or you can sign up for my email list and I'll let you know when new things are available!
