TunnelLoveI am an avid tunnel hunter. Maybe because within the tunnel there is the dark, the unknown... and the unknown is exciting. Mysterious.

I get a huge amount of inquiries asking about the purple herb shelf at Morgan Botanicals! Many about how do I keep them safe from exposure to sunlight. Well if you haven't been into the shop then it's easy to miss the awesomely hidden curtain. My shop faces East and the shelf is tucked into a nook facing South but doesn't get straight sun hitting it. But there are alot of windows and in the summer it is brighter in here. So what I did was put up a curtain rod at the top of my shelf, and I close the curtain when I'm not working and especially in the summer when the light shifts and it's brighter in my shop. It's a super cheap fix for those looking for ideas on how to display and enjoy the beauty of your herbs -but also to protect your medicines better! ~Jessica

PurpleSelfLoveFlowersThree years ago today I decided to stop buying myself cigarettes and start buying myself flowers instead. I choose to trade a self destructive habit for a self love habit, and buying flowers was something I 'never' had money to spend.... on myself.

Three years later, the self love tradition continues. I am proud of myself and my commitment to a better me. Change is pretty darned easy when you want it to be. Now my home is prettier, my lungs are prettier, my life is prettier, and I am prettier! And it is my deepest hope that this little blurb of self love might just help someone else to find the courage to commit to themselves too. What ever it may be.
