Every time I see bales of hay or straw in a country field I’ve wanted to do this. At age 64, my dream finally came true. Climbing up on this huge bale was so much fun!
Not a big dream, but it was a big bale. And it’s the simple things in life that can be so enjoyable.
My darling granddaughter is only 6 and she already had her first climb to the top!
This white T-shirt is embellished with a crocheted neckline. I bought another one in navy blue at American Eagle (a few years ago).

Have you ever wanted to do something you finally got to do?
Is there something still on your dream list?

My daughter Jean (from Jean of all Trades: a style guide and Sunshine and Slaughter: Vegan for Life) has had two monumental achievements this year: she became an American citizen and opened her own eco boutique Drizzle and Shine.
Jean followed her dream and took a leap of ‘fate’ to pursue her passion. After hard work and vision, she opened the doors of Drizzle and Shine on Capitol Hill in Seattle in May.
She’s had wonderful reviews and great support from friends and customers. The time is ripe and as more and more people are concerned about fair-trade and animal cruelty, her boutique for men and women is the place to shop ethically.
More than any other achievement, it makes me immensely happy that Jean is working towards making this world a better place for people and animals. If there’s one thing that makes me most happy, it’s to have a kind and compassionate daughter.
Jean has been an ethical shopper for many years. These purses are vegan, by Crystalyn Kae made in the USA. So soft and durable: feels and looks like leather. Jean says, “Showing up to a party with the same dress is unconscionable, but showing up with matching Crystalyn Kae purses is high-fiveable!”
Jean is also an animal advocate and has four furry friends living with her: Frankie the dog and three cats (all adopted).
Happy 4th of July!
God bless America!
