Can you believe that my fiddle leaf fig tree is still growing? I moved him to the dining room when we had the Christmas tree here. I was worried that moving him out of his spot would make him mad. But not only did he continue to thrive, he got another new leaf this week!
This is the fiddle leaf that was on its last legs (leaves? branches?) when we moved here. I had sadly killed a couple of his siblings in our old house (eek), and this one was looking pretty scrawny by the time we moved. But look at him now! YOU GO, FIDDLE LEAF! You’re making your mama PROUD!
The sun came out yesterday here in Seattle and it felt like spring had arrived inside and out! Plants were thriving, sun was shining on my face, the birds were even chirping. I could hardly contain my joy! I know I need to brace myself for more rainy days, but still. I was really happy to feel the warmth coming through the windows and the sunshine definitely gave me a much needed winter boost of vitamin D :).
Speaking of thriving in the winter time, I had mentioned last week (on the chemicals in the home post) that I would share my personal health story of why a healthy home matters to me. I got quite a few messages from readers who are on a similar journey, so as promised, I finally have my story up if you want to read it! You can find it here.
Don’t forget, I’ve been doing a fun little mini series focusing on how to have a happy and healthy winter home on my new Instagram @pureandlovelyliving. If you’re not on Instagram, you can also find the posts on Facebook! I’d love to have you join us.
