My Favorite Things in March


I thought it would be fun to share some things that are making me happy this month. Here’s the list.

Sparkle Stories: a podcast for children with short stories we can listen to on our way to or from school. I think I may enjoy them more than Zoey, but perhaps as she gets older she’ll enjoy them as much as I do.

Annmarie Gianni beauty products: I’m still loving Annmarie’s products. I use her aloe herb facial cleanser, neroli toning mist, anti-aging facial oil, coconut honey mask, dead sea scrub, and sun love sunscreen. Can you tell I love her products? And they smell so good! Back in December I was asked to participate in her Beautiful Voices column. Check out my interview answers here.

Ben Hewitt’s The Nourishing Homestead: An inspiring book about a husband and wife living in Vermont with their two young sons who farm, raise animals, and live off their land as much as possible. It’s inspired me to get my hands dirty.

Modern Farm Girls podcast which can be found on iTunes. This is my favorite new podcast about farm life with a special focus on female farmers.

And the book I’m currently reading: Owen’s Daughter by Jo-Ann Mapson. I’ve read a couple of her other books, all of which I’ve enjoyed.

So there you go. Tomorrow is my first herbal class at Motherland Botanical Sanctuary. It’s one weekend a month for nine months. I’ll write more about it in another post.

  1. Oh Jessica… You remind me of My mother and how we lived in the country with my Dad. Chickens in our play house, a goat as our lawn mower, Macintosh apples in abundance, wild blue berries and strawberries, hiking with your grandfather to find a Christmas tree…oh the wonderful memories you and steve are giving to your children. I was Zoey’s age when we moved to the farm and I still have memories of that time. I love your blog. 

  2. Jessica..I just spoke with your Aunt Eileen (Leigh). She told me about your site. I’m happy for you and your family. It seems like an interesting and, hopefully, idyllic life. Best wishes, Cousin Michael (Franks). P.S.: Your current environment is a bit different than the one you lived in while in NYC!

    • Yes, so VERY different than my short stint in NYC. We’re coming out next month for my 15th Yale reunion and then going to visit NYC for a few days. We tried to get my parents to join us, but my dad likes to stick close to home these days. Perhaps another trip out or maybe you’ll come to CA for a visit? 🙂
