What followed was the installation of a gorgeously appointed urban garden right smack in the front of my house (yeah I know! Convenient right?) – and perfectly situated to showcase the plants.

Recently I referenced a great book I’d read, and shared a thought or two from the pages I ate up while earnestly stepping my way to happiness at the gym.
