  2. A note for my husband.

    Remember when we were in college? And one day you rode your bike all the way across campus to my dorm. You knocked on my door and when I opened you simply said, “What should we do today?”

    I looked back at my dorm room and said, “I want to get a pet fish for my desk.”

    So we rode to the pet store a few miles away. We laughed the entire way there. When we stopped you chained your bike to mine and held my hand in the parking lot. We picked out a Beta fish. You told me I wouldn’t be able to keep any other fish alive.

    When we walled back out to our bikes I told you we had to walk back because I didn’t want Steve to go belly up from the bumpy bike ride. You took him and put him in your basket. You promised me to ride slow with him.

    It took us 2 hours to get back. We rode side by side and talked about our past.

    Its funny, even then we had a past together. It felt like we’d known each other a century. We were only friends then. But there was always something more under the surface. I’ve always loved you.


    And now that we have known each other a century, I’m just as in love with you today as I was that day that we got Steve. When Steve did go belly up, I cried a little. I called you and you came right over.

    He was just a fish. But you held me anyway. You always do.

    So, my sister and mother-in-law created this awesome new shop on Etsy called Greenware2go. 

    I’m bringing it to tumblr because I personally love the products and I though maybe everyone else would love them too.  They’ve got all homemade “green” recycled products.  Lunchboxes, snack bags for your little ones, tote bags, and the best of all, BUSY BAGS.

    If you don’t know what a busy bag is, it’s basically a gift from above if you’ve got a little one.  My 2 year old loves her busy bags.  First, they come in cute little bags just the perfect size for a purse of diaper bag or backpack.  Each little bag comes with an activity designed by a preschool teacher (my mother-in-law) to keep your child entertained and enlightened.  This little activities help stimulate their minds!  They’ve got color matching, numbers, hand eye coordination and more.  They’re the perfect thing to take out to dinner or a doctors office.  Just great to hand to a babe in the shopping cart when they’re getting too fussy.

    My daughter loves them.  She won’t put them down.

    So go check out their shop and take a peak around.  Let me know if you’re interested in a discount and we’ll talk.

    Happy shopping, friends.   <3

    I was JUST about to order one of the busy bags, and realized it was going to be 70$ for shipping to Canada! :(((((((((((((((((

    I just spoke with my sister in law and she said that’s a mistake! She’s going to look at realistic prices to ship to Canada. The shop is brand new so I know their out of country shipping is just the standard that etsy gave them. She will check the prices and I’ll let you know when she changes them!!!
