Lately, I have been dreaming about getting away on vacation. Work is so crazy right now that its not going to happen anytime soon, but a girl can dream.

Since the holidays, taking down Christmas décor and trying to freshen up the house, I have had 4 different potted plants on my dining room table. I think the longest any of them have lived is 2 1/2 weeks. Granted, I’ve not really done my research about which plants should be indoor versus outdoor, water and light needs, etc. but come on…4 plants in 2 1/2 months?!?! Sorry mom, maybe I really shouldn’t have children!
