Green Moms Carnival :: Gratitude and Our Favorite Green Things Ever!

Several months ago a group of very cool women decided to gather and be a collective voice on topics related to green. 

Green Mom’s Carnival was born. 

In its infancy I personally knew only a few of these ladies, yet as this group has bonded and grown, I have come to know many of them much more and find myself incredibly privileged to be blogging together.

They are a true inspiration, a force of female green, a sector not to be messed with.

They foster informed choice, change and saving the planet. One mom at a time.

As I have gathered these posts and read each and every one of them I am deeply touched by their thoughtful and heartfelt musings about this month’s topic

Now readers, before you completely balk at the volume of commentary here…  


Get yourself a cup of tea and settle in. 

This is like sitting in your favorite chair with a really great book

Read, ponder, learn, hit the back button and read some more.

Don’t forget to chime into the conversation.  Nothing compliments a blogger more than a comment. 

Look forward to a rich, thoughtful and truly wonderful expressions of gratitude and our favorite greennesses.

P.S. If you like a particular point of view please consider adding any of all of these sites to your favorites. Better yet subscribe! Feel free to share this collective expression with those you know.
