Last Saturday was Earth Day, which U.S. Senator, Gaylord Nelson, founded on April 22, 1970. Earth Day was originally set up as an environmental teach-in hosted at many colleges, universities, primary and secondary schools, as well as hundreds of communities across the United States. More than 40 years later, Earth Day is still going strong, bringing millions of Americans together in peaceful demonstrations and celebrations in favor of environmental reform. Earth Day has many heroes and we think it truly celebrates the legacy of Chico Mendes. Growing up in the jungle Chico Mendes developed a love and respect for nature early in life.

Alicia was an outside-the-box thinker who saw beauty from all angles. Math Ran in the Family It seems that this “mathematic-genius aptitude” ran in her blood. Her father, George Boole, was a mathematician, educator, philosopher, and logician. He even has a form of algebra named after him, Boolean algebra, which has played a major part in the development of digital electronics and programming languages.

Whether it’s a run to the grocery store or a trip to Grandma’s, I’m constantly packing my daughter’s diaper bag for a day out and about. So for me, organization and style are key. Keeping things organized helps to ensure we have “all the things” at hand when the time comes. Style, on the other hand, is just for me. The truth is, since I’ve become a mama, I can’t always say I look or feel my best. On those days, it helps to at least
