I don’t know about other women of my generation, but I have to confess that being concerned about our global environment and understanding concepts like sustainability and carbon footprints was just not really a 'thing' in my youth. It is now! Especially when I look at the world through the eyes of my children and grandchildren.  

I hope you have an opportunity today (and every day) to celebrate Earth Day.  @Lauren Bosworth has posted this guide with terrific ideas on ways to commemorate the day and @Dr. Gabrielle Francis offers these suggestions for eating healthier to reduce your carbon footprint. 

Below I’ve posted a photo from one of the most beautiful places on earth: Alaska. It actually took my breath away.  What is your favorite place to enjoy the beauty of nature? Share a photo!
