What’s in a name?

I’ve always thought of myself as a tree hugger. I was strongly influenced by the “hippies” and consider myself a hippie at heart, even when I’m wearing a suit. Maybe the tie dyed (papillon) dog coat gives it away.

I think I began to reduce my carbon footprint long before this phrase was penned. I’ve always recycled, brought my own bags to the grocery store (even produce bags), purchased recycled products, and I eat a vegan diet–the amount of resources it takes to grow meat is ridiculous. Then there is the methane gas and never mind the violence of it all. I only wish I could figure out composting. So, I’m a nutshell the name was born.

I’m not really sure how long an ideal blog post so should be. I’ve always been a less is more type of person and not one to go on and on. I’m hoping to cover more in this blog over time. I plan to interview other tree huggers and vegans. I plan to talk about NHVEGFEST (which I organize), my maker life, and my Arbonne business. I hope you’ll follow me. I’m using an app to write this post and hope to get the kinks worked out so it looks nice.
