Time off in 2013

by Lynn & Corey

It’s been an incredible six years. Launching the green holidays revolution has been a labor of love, a tremendous honor and so much fun. (As a mother-daughter team, working together via our shared passion has also been a dream come true!) We’re grateful to have had the opportunity to share this journey with you.

Now it’s time for our next chapter.

We’re taking 2013 off to rejuvenate, to focus on family, to discover more balance, and maybe – just maybe – to hatch one or two new revolutions (stay tuned!). The next chapter will include inhaling and exhaling (what a concept!), unplugging, and discovering new ways to nourish our worlds – inside.

In the meantime, we hope you’ll continue to visit our site for all things green holidays and celebrations related. We’ll continue to post as often as we can.  Of course, you can always find ideas for recipes, décor and more via the “search” function at the top of the page.

Thank you so much for six years of support and inspiration. We are deeply grateful to our fans and followers, partners and collaborators, and to each and every one of you who have taken steps towards making your holidays and celebrations better for people and planet.

We wish you and yours a happy, healthy and meaningfully green 2013 and look forward to connecting with you next January.

Hugs and love,

Lynn & Corey
