First, the why… Why dandelions? The answer is simple. They were my late grandfather’s favorite flower. He didn’t view them as a weed, but rather a beautiful plant! While others would become frustrated with how they overtook their perfect, green grass he delighted in their appearance. He would always regret having to mow them down, but they were hardy little plants that would grow right back and spread across the lawn. I’m sure that his next door neighbors always loved how he was willing to share his dandelions with their own lawns. Thanks, Boompa for teaching me that all things in life can be just dandy.
Now the who… Who am I? Well, I’m a 30 something year old gal. I like all things chocolate. This would include: chocolate eclairs (the ones in Paris are the bestest), chocolate cannolis, chocolate covered raisins, and anything Cadbury! Before I also might be a former traveling girl who did some time working in a children’s emergency room. But what am is a psychology educated mommy who likes to sew and craft. In addition to blogging I’m also a small business owner (St. Louis ice cream machine rental) and an independent consultant for Jamberry Nails (because I like the discount). Most importantly I’m a mom to one dandy 6 year-old (“Banjo”), one dandy 3 year-old (“Ruby”), one dandy 10 month-old (“Cache”), and wife to one dandy audiologist man (“Audi”).
