Vacation Thyme

It’s been a little quiet here at Clover and Thyme for the past week or so…our family is vacationing at the Jersey Shore, enjoying the start of summer with a healthy dose of sun, surf and sand. You know it’s been a relaxing vacation when you lose track of what time of day it is, and your June magazine issues have the scratchy sound of sand stuck between the pages.

I’ll be back to posting come Monday, I’ll most certainly have a big garden update to share along with photos from our time here at the shore.

Dear 16 Year Old Me…

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Please take a moment to watch this video. It’s powerful stuff. My mom has had skin cancer twice on her face. I have many of the risk factors, so I see my dermatologist a least once a year for a full body check. If you have any risk factors for skin cancer, get a check up! Soon.
