Time Flies When You are sharing Monkey Brains

Saturday, October 16, 2010

I bet you have heard or said this like a million times in your life time : WHERE did the summer go? Now make that 1 million and 1 !
First I want to say that just like in my comment status on sparkpeople today I really love how sparkpeople is always there for you. This week I had a friendly reminder from the dearest friend I have ( which I met on Sparks a few years back) inquiring if I had been on sparkspeople lately. Thank you for the reminder so I am back to post a little from my world.

Things sure have changed from a few years ago after finding sparkpeople. I'm now a full time freelance photographer shooting from magazines and other publications. I am enjoying life in the garden with an extremely healthy spin. This has been an amazing journey for me and my family. I'm grateful to say that much of the garden networking began when I started the group 'Veggies & Blooms' here at Sparkpeople.

Today I would like to invite you to check out my Monkey Brain share:

I hope to hear from you all and where your healthy lifestyles are taking you! IF you are just beginning the path to living well share a comment because I would love to support you along your journey.

Best Wishes - and Happy Harvest from Bren

Grow your Own

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

If I can do it ... anyone can do it!
I am a city girl at heart. I don't know the names of most of the pretty blooms I grow but I love what they do for me and my family. The colors light up our world and add to the beautiful surroundings. I recently started growing my veggies in raised beds and I love it. It is so much easier.

What a wonderful feeling to walk out in the garden ( big or small) and pick something healthy for your family to enjoy!

Find out more about my garden and how to grow your own at my website :

    HEY .... my favorite sparkies!!!! Great to see you Sunny and Patty!
WORKING hard in the garden. Trying to keep things green this year with using all natural products. It has been fun and the produce is very rewarding.

(((HUGS)) to you both!

I've missed you!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

Hey All - It is a fabulous spring morning here in the garden and I just wanted to post a little something from my world.

From my frosty morning walk in the garden.
These tulips seem to be enjoying the crisp treat from spring!

I've missed you,

Happy New Year!

Saturday, January 30, 2010

I am a little late with this blog but I have been so busy with life. I recently deleted myself ...... ouch .... off of my Veggies and Blooms Team. I feel so bad for leaving those lovely ladies but I was a horrible leader the past 1/2 year.

Do you remember when you were a kid and you would go sledding in the winter? You know that feeling when you are going down the hill and it feels like there is NO WAY to stop till you hit the bottom? That is pretty much the I can describe my life this past six months.

I went to Europe - never dreamed I would ever leave the USA and I even appeared on a wonderful Garden channel with a DIY Star!

I have yet to HIT THE BOTTOM ..........

This has been a wonderful experience!

It just wouldn't be a BGgarden blog with out some photos. These pretty swans were at the Park my husband and I visited while in Ireland.

I hope you will stop by my blog sometime and say 'hey'!

    OMG how wonderful!!! We NEED to catch up sometime! I work so much overtime right now, I barely have time to breath, but trust me when I say that you cross my mind often-- and I know that someone I'll be honored to meet you in person!

When you do get a chance, please share your trip just a little- I'd love to hear where you went and what you thought! I'm planning my trip for 2010- to Croatia this time, so I hope it works out!
