I decided to go to the Ogden Area Influencers Summit last Friday.  I have not been to an event like this before.  It was a chance for businesses to connect with bloggers and Instagramers.  I went as a business and had a wonderful time.  I enjoyed the talks by local business and community leaders:

Incredible bloggers and businesses in Ogden. What a great day! I am pretty proud of myself. I created my first media kit (see the blue recycled jean folders). I have never seen one before so I goggled it late and night and created it.

 

Clean Air for Utah….Greatest Smog On Earth January 29, 2014

I love my state.  Utah is an amazing place to raise my kiddos and it is just so beautiful……..until we hit winter inversion days.  This last year alone we had 23 red days.   The last big inversion we were ranked the worse state in all of the good ole USA.  Some of our cities even out ranked Vegas and San Francisco.   Now that is not a good place for anyone to live or breath in.  This last weekend my family and I attended the Clean Air Rally at the State Capitol.  It was the biggest one ever in Utah. They say 5000 people showed up.  Here are some of the pictures from the event.

The air effects us all. I would love any extra support to tell our Governor to clean up our air.  You can contact him at 1-801-578-1000.

 

What a busy month we have had! May 17, 2012

We have been so busy that we are finally catching up on the blog.

One of my favorite places to take my family is to the Ogden Nature Center.  It is a beautiful wilderness preserve right in the middle of Ogden, Utah.  We have loved the kids classes they teach, summer concerts,  festivals, birds that live there and amazing other wild life like deers, frogs and beavers…AWESOME.  You can find them on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Ogdennaturecenter or  their website: http://www.ogdennaturecenter.org/   Their website has this to say “Located in the heart of Ogden, you’ll find a 152-acre nature preserve and education center open to the public year-round. Visitors enjoy 1.5 miles of walking trails, picnic areas, tree houses, bird blinds and an exhibit of live birds of prey.  Two of Utah’s greenest buildings are on site to teach about sustainable structures. A unique gift shop is located in the Visitor Center. The Ogden Nature Center offers a wide variety of classes & workshops for all ages including art, photography, birding, wildlife in Utah, outdoor recreation, conservation, sustainability, summer camps and more.”   This year we did a show here on Earth Day.  Here are some of the fun pictures from this year:

Setting up is always fun!

Earth in Art Potter has some of the most outstanding pottery.  She does the coolest natural designs with leaves and animals.  She is on Etsy (site below) and on facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/pages/Earth-in-Art-Pottery

Next we went to Earth Jam in Liberty Park, Salt Lake City, Utah.  We always have so much fun going to this.  The music is amazing and I always meet the nicest people there.  You can find them on facebook to learn more about this great festival: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000232392689  or thier website at :http://earth-jam.org/  Their website has this to say about the festival “Earth Jam Productions is a non-profit organization that comes together every April in celebration of Earth Day. Our annual Festival is held in Liberty Park located in Salt Lake City, UT. We offer a variety of different activities that all help educate on bettering the environment and bringing people and community’s together.
The music of Earth Jam is the heart of the organization. We have 2 stages The Earth Stage, The Fire Stage, that we fill with local talent, performing arts, and speakers.  
We have a Goddess Pageant that is held in March, this is a way to find beauty and self expression in our community. Our Earth Goddess plays a strong roll in bringing Earth Jam into the communities.  The Children’s Garden Center helps teach our children lasting memories on Global consciousness and building a safer future for generations to come. We do this through the art of creation by recycling, gardening, solar and wind power and the basic respect of loving our Earth and being aware of our environment.”    One of my other favorite things about this festival is that I got to be next to An Array of Artistry.  She has amazing items with her Resurrected Denim, Henna and Cloth Diapers.   You can find her at: https://www.facebook.com/HennaOgden  Here are some of our fun pictures from this festival:
