We're Plant Parents! ☘️🌿🍃🎍🌵🌳🌱

Ethan and I are both the all-or-nothing type. So, just over a week ago when I said that I thought our living space could use a plant or two, we both took that as an excuse to start a full-on garden. No, seriously. 🙃 We are now the proud Plant Parents to 15 new plant friends. I love each and every one of them for their beauty, and the clean air and peace that they bring to our space. Plus, now I feel very needed. Owning plants is a super fun and rewarding hobby and community that I’m so glad to now be apart of.

Because I love sharing my life with you all, I thought you’d enjoy meeting our new plants one by one. These lovelies came from IKEA, Home Depot, Meijer, and English Gardens - but I’m sure you could find similar green friends in your own neighborhood, if plant parenting sounds interesting to you.

So, without further adieu, meet our new plant family -
