I'm so excited to be sharing some of our best tips for gardening at my real-life friend Sarah's blog today! Sarah's blog The Orthodox Mama is fairly new, but already I've found some terrific book suggestions and life tips from her!
Here's an excerpt from my guest post:

I never used to care much for succulents. Deciduous leaves and lots of flowers just seemed more alive. Ever since moving to drought-ridden Texas though, where dry weather plants reign, succulents have really grown on me.
Or maybe it's just because they have become trendy, and I'm more of malleable to popular opinion than I like to think.
At any rate, they really are great, aren't they? So many textures. So many fun names. (baby toes!) So un-plant-like sometimes. Not to mention the fact that they're adorably juicy...it makes you just want to squeeze their little leaves!

One glance at that sprawling monster with it's gnarly, multi-colored arms is enough to kill the party spirit in me every time. I swear it must actually move around in the box between birthdays. And of course, if any of that crumpled crepe paper actually made its way to my walls and ceilings for a party, it would likely make the poor, celebrated child weep at the bedraggled sight of it.
Best just to throw it all away, right?
Well, actually...not so fast. Here's a terrific use for that colorful, fluffy mess.
