getting to my core
What I really want to talk about on this page is WHY. The answer to both why 1) I am here and 2) doing bee stuff is FUN. I started blogging because it was fun. Keeping my extended family up to date got them to start chitchatting with me. I started teaching about honey bees because beekeeping is fun, but only when your bees stay alive. My mom and I discussed keeping life fun just today, right as Labor Day weekend 2021 arrives (and we did this back in 2018, too).
I choose to spend my time and money in alignment with my values, so I also want you to know that I run a homeshare-style AirBnb where $1 from every night’s stay went to the Sustainable Iowa Land Trust and another $1 to the St. Vincent de Paul Sacred Heart conference.
