    As this challenge finishes up, I am very grateful for all that I have learned. This has honestly made me a lot more conscious of the impact that I truly have on the planet. Although I am just one person, I have a lot of ability to make changes. Even if they are small ones, everything counts! Thank you all for allowing me to partake in this experience. I am excited to continue to put all of these items into practice, and try to make a difference even if it's just a small one.

      My philosophy is that if everyone did something little a day to help the planet, that would be 7.8 billion little things and that's pretty amazing.

    Visited the Huntington Library / Botanical Garden yesterday. So beautiful! I have a hard time uploading pictures, but I was most fascinated by the Desert garden. It amazes me how species can adapt to their environment in such a way.

      Spent so many hours in the water during the summer as a kid, that the smell of sunscreen just makes me think of summer.
