happy friday and happy earth day :)

how cool is that picture of a thermal pool from yellowstone national park? these hot springs are home to some of the most interesting microorganisms (if you allow me to nerd out) known as extremophiles that are capable of living in super harsh conditions such as hot hot temps, high pH, and really high salt. they also give the springs all their lovely colors ;)
so even though my boss gets off today, i'm still at work but i'm hoping to get out early today and get a jump start on the weekend. there is so much to do! and for the first time in 5 weekends (!) i get to spend saturday with my wonderful and overworked fiance :) hooray! we are going to get started on registering for our upcoming wedding and hopefully get a nice arrangement of herbs planted (i promise to try my best to keep them alive through the entire summer...).
also in honor of Earth Day, just a reminder that i have a fun assortment of necklaces and bracelets made out of repurposed t-shirts and reclaimed industrial materials. and hopefully i will get to post more of the new 100% organic cotton items over the weekend.
