Finding JOY in the little things...


I'm going on an "herbal scavenger hunt" in Sardinia...

As an avid herbalist with an ever growing desire to learn, I'm taking our trip to Sardinia as an opportunity to learn as much as I can about the native flora of the beautiful mediterranean island. 

Here's how it works:

  • Before our trip, I researched the herbs so that I can recognize them.
  • Now I am on the lookout for the herbs while we're away.

So let's go find some herbs!!
