Blog Theme - Diaries, Journals, Journaling

There was a time when I ‘journaled’ every day. It was a long time too. Learned a lot about myself and enjoyed the download of information, thoughts, and ideas swirling inside my head. Over time my journal turned into a notebook where meeting notes are jotted, Where I sketch, and dash fleeting ideas that seem worth revisiting. While writing this its occurring to me that these notebooks are in fact journals, just my style has changed. They contain all sorts of information that marks a place in time or reminds me of the day, or experience. This week our theme is Dairies, Journals, Journaling.  Do you keep a journal or diary?  What is you favorite type of book to spill into? Send a picture of something that pertains to this week's theme of Diaries, Journals and Journaling to to be included in our Friday column called 1000 words.  No captions, just images.

Blog Theme - Back To School/Lunchboxes

ECOlunchpod by This week’s blog theme is Back To School and Lunch Boxes. How do you, or your kids, pack for school lunch? A friend, and fellow second grade mom told me the other day that when her kids were in public school in California they did not allow disposable lunchbox packaging materials. Everything was packed in reuseable containers/wraps! What a GREAT model~ This week we delve into all sorts of facets of lunchboxes. Packaging, healthy recipes, the actual lunchbox, focused on alternatives to readily available status quo of Lunchables, soda, and a whole pile of single-use plastic wraps!


Do you have a picture that works with this week’s theme of Back to School/Lunchboxes? On Fridays, come see what our readers submit to our One Thousand Words column. Just a picture, captioned with the photographer’s name (and business name, if applicable). A weekly gallery of ideas and inspiration compiled of readers’ submissions. Email your image to by Wednesday 8pm EST for inclusion.

Blog Theme ~ Beach

Each week there is a blog theme that usually has something to do with what is going on in my world.  This week my family - all three of my kiddos, my hubby, and I are relaxing on Cape Cod.  Beach is the theme this week.  It turns out the weather forecast is for high temperatures in the mid-seventies so not sure how much sunning we will get to on the beach.  We do plan a lot of coastal exploring on bikes.  Cloudy skies will not keep us from having adventures.  Stay tuned here for tidbits on how our week turns out! YOU can participate right here at by submitting an image that sums up your week and somehow speaks to our theme?  Send entries to my email by Wednesday evening for our Friday ONE THOUSAND WORDS column.  Include your name and business name if you have one to be used as the caption.  Every week there is a new theme, posted here on Sundays.  On Friday (or sometimes Saturday) One Thousand Words is posted.  It is a collection of the previous weeks BEST photo entries.
