Lesson of the day…

This morning I woke up to a Facebook post spreading the word on the recent “Back to the Start” video from Chipolte.  I saw the TV commercial a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it.  But watching the full video turned today in a learning lesson for my daughter.

As we were out running errands we stopped at Chipolte for lunch.  While we filled our bellies I explained the importance of knowing where our food comes from, respecting the land, and understanding the concept of sustainable farming.

When we returned home I showed her the video.  She and her little brother watched it five times.  My daughter then showed her father the video, and even explained the meaning behind it.

If you  haven’t already done so, take a moment and watch this video.  The Coldplay song performed by Willie Nelson is great, too.

I must say it was a burrito-ful day!



About Diary of a Wanna Be Homesteader...

Call me the black sheep of the family. I’m a 30-something (pushing 40) socially inept gal living in the beautiful state of Maine, mother of two rambunctious children, to include two dogs with a combined weight of 300 lbs. I met my husband, self-professed anti-social media mogul, in Japan. We met in November 1998, married in May 1999… happily ever after. After much exploration, and two children later, we settled in Maine to raise our family away from the hassles of city life. Surrounded by trees and clean air we’ve built a spectacular life on 3 acres. Folks may call us anti-social… we like to call ourselves pr0-self. We value each other, our family and our passions in life more than pleasing others. I buy milk in glass bottles. I drive a Prius. I am a weather junkie. I must drink a cup of coffee daily. I believe in buying local. I love knitting but don’t do it often enough. Sunflowers make me happy. Fishing calms my soul. This blog is about my love of a simpler life… family, love, gardening, nature, independence. This is the place where I will share it, and begin my journey to obtain that life, one step at a time.
