May Link Love 2013

May has been an exciting and beautiful month here in Colorado. My first year of graduate school (of three total) has come to an end and Spring has finally arrived! The trees are blooming and so are the plants in our community garden plot–something that my husband and I didn’t even realize was available to us until a few weeks ago. We now have access to a free (!) 10×10 foot plot where we are growing kale, collards, spinach, swiss chard, pickles, acorn squash, tomatoes, dill, parsley, basil, cilantro, oregano, thyme, and calendula! We are very excited to be growing some of our own food for the upcoming season!

May has also brought with it the promise of free time for me focus on a new business venture! Starting later this Summer I will be opening an Etsy store in which I’ll be selling homemade skincare products. Please stay tuned for more updates on this exciting new development!

For today, I’d like to share with you some of my favorite blog articles from the month of May!

  1. Thank you so much for including our honey cleanser idea in your link-love. It is remarkably easy to make yourself and the effect is cleansed skin without synthetic chemicals. It is inexpensive too!
