I am proud to know that Earth Day originated in the U.S. but became recognized worldwide by 1990. I can remember ordering baby trees to plant in celebration of Earth Day.
Sarah Stright-Hartley: These pastels will put a spring in your step
Is it just me or are pastels ubiquitous with spring? Once the season hits, they're everywhere. It's taken me awhile to jump on the pastel bandwagon and even still I can't wear them head to toe like some women do.
Kali Davies-Anderson: Experiment proves cake really is a slice of heaven

Culinary Conversation: Think globally, cook locally
Another set of bookshelves might be necessary at my house very soon. It’s been a bountiful week. Edie Majesky of New Castle, who I have known most of my life, is aware of how much I love collecting old cookbooks.

This week I would like to take time out of my usual ramblings to wish my second born daughter, Ivy, a very, very happy first birthday!
Heartbleed raises the stakes on Internet security
