Oh why hello there again, friend! It’s so lovely to see you.

The sun has been SHINING here in Tacoma, and it’s been the best thing ever. Every winter I forget that I’m basically solar powered, and then the sun comes back and I’m like a whole new person.

Anywhoooo - it’s Earth Week! The 51st Earth Day is TODAY, Thursday, April 22nd, and although every day is Earth Day around here, this week I’m sharing 21 ways to celebrate Earth Day 2021 from the comfort of your own home.

1. Clean up three pieces of trash around your home
2. Plant a tree (we’re big fans of Trees for the Future around here)
