Look What I Found Online This Week

I haven't had a lot of time to surf the web this week. I've been making preparations for another event this weekend. I did find a couple of interesting things to share though...

Long popular in Japan, rain chains are beginning to trend here in North America. Check out the tutorial to make a rain chain for yourself.

The humble cucumber is actually a little gem. And not just for its nutritional benefits. Check out the 13 Magical Uses for Cucumber.

You may not have grown up in an African tribe that sings your song to you at crucial life transitions, but life is always reminding you when you are in tune with yourself and when you are not. Learn more about this tribe here.

Today is the summer solstice. For some, it is an opportunity to slow down the world’s frantic pace, connect with nature and marvel at the mysteries of the universe. For others, the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere, one that marks the beginning of summer, is a chance to party all night long. Whatever you choose, enjoy the day and have a safe and happy weekend!
