Welcome to the weekly Wednesday Be Clean Be Green With Kids Link Up to share and garner ideas about simple ways to make family life a little easier, eco-conscious and sustainable. The ideas we share don’t have to be rocket science, so let’s help out another mom (or parent!) discover just the right idea to find a conscious cadence in everyday life.
On the blog this week…
Bachelorette parties can be wild and crazy and wasteful, but they definitely don’t have to be. Check out some highlights of my really great weekend with all my sisters, a dozen friends, and free of all the hassle.
Tragedy and trauma don’t have to define us. Although they will hurt, Option B by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant offers insight on enduring hardship and moving forward without fear. Check out more about this book that has something for everyone.
In this edition of the Modern Mom Series, I interview everyday moms who have a knack for making parenting and family life a little bit simpler and more manageable.
Amy, from My Upstate Life, has so much great insight to share about her family life in Saratoga Springs, New York. As a beginner garden with a large garden from the previous owner, I (maybe selfishly) picked her brain about her gardening skills and she packed so many good nuggets of information into her answers! Our garden currently looks like a jungle of weeds, but her ideas are golden.

There are no requirements about pinning or following or sharing in order to participate. Those kind of drive me crazy.

Looking forward to seeing what’s working for your family!
