Reflections on THE MONTH OF MAY
So the month of May has come and gone in the blink of an eye.
We've spent basically every weekend doing yard work and trying to organize the flower beds (it's our first spring in the new house, so it's all up in the air until it starts growing). It's a daunting task at best, let me tell you; while there's a ton of potential there, our yard hasn't had much TLC for the past few years.
Luckily I'm working on that green thumb of mine and learning new things about growing plants every day! My largest focus to date has been indoor house plant collection. My plant fam currently encapsulates the following: french & english lavender, mini red rose bush, peperomia prostrata, peperomia obtusifolia (one regular, one variegata), chlorophytum comosum (spider plant), pachira aquatica (money tree), try basil, two sansavierias and a heritage raspberry plant (soon to be planted outside).
This captures most (not all) of the plants inside my house:
I hadn't gotten into gardening or growing houseplants before now simply because I always lived in rented basement apartments without much sunlight or access to a backyard. It's such a wonderful feeling, however, to see plants thriving under my own care. They're all so unique with their needs and temperament to growing conditions.
Anyway, outside of totally nerding out on plants (and learning to garden), I've been keeping busy with work and side projects. Oh, the Goddess Rebellion has officially launched its newsletter! Each month, subscribers will receive TGR updates, recommendations and monthly roundups sent straight to their inboxes. If you'd like to subscribe, you can do so here.
Wishing you all a wonderful month of June!

So I’ve finally finished and put up my little memorabilia from the trip I took a month ago and I can’t get over how gorgeous that live edge is... I definitely plan on doing more of this style in the future but for now, how cool is it that there’s a little bit of indian rocks beach in my northern ontario sunroom? 🌊☀️
