    Hi Jane – Will you have a post about your environmental efforts this year? I always look forward to them.

    • Emily! I cannot tell you how happy it makes me you asked that question! I am so behind the game this year because of my thumb surgeries…but yes, I will make it a goal to write about that for this year for sure! I actually even already was writing with an environmental science expert to gather data for this year’s goal…you have inspired me to finish that up!
