my happy place

Foraging was a success yesterday! My best friend Maya and I didn’t find a lot but we found enough. Lobster mushrooms, slippery jacks, and one single cute wee puffball. We found some boletes we weren’t familiar with too, took a few home to identify and test. I also gathered some old mans beard moss.

Pinky Promises


Some Daddies and Mommies might think a Pinky Promise is just a silly play thing that littles do while they’re in little space, except that could not be any further from the truth! A Pinky Promise is not a game and it is not like a regular promise. It is a very a special form of a promise to littles. It is a promise that never EVER should be broken under any circumstance.

It is a promise that littles make from the bottom of their heart and they expect you to promise from the bottom your heart too. So if you ever break a Pinky Promise, then you will break their little heart. So when your little one asks you “Pinky Promise Daddy?” Or “Pinky Promise Mommy?” Then you make sure to look her/him in the eyes, smile, and say “of course I do sweet heart,“ and Pinky Promise them. Lastly, but most importantly, make sure you keep that Pinky Promise!
