Spring Equinox – Birthday Detox 2020

The spring equinox is the kick off to my favorite time of year, not just because it is the launch of a month long birthday celebration, but because it is my reset season.

I grew up in a house full of plants, we lived in what felt like a jungle; my mom loved plants!  It’s amazing how with each year and each breath I am going back to my roots.
