It is rare that I am on Twitter and see a few tweets, choose to do a series of tweets that really should be a blog post. That’s exactly what happened tonight as I saw friends talking about #901Day — since 901 is the area code for Memphis (my beloved hometown), it is a great […]
Disclaimer: I got some of the plants, experiences and connections to my backyard garden mentioned in this article through my work at Monsanto. This post reflects my personal opinions and I’m writing it just cause I want to like I always do. As I mentioned earlier this summer, I decided to do a container garden […]
I was traveling when they did the opening ceremony of the Olympics and turned it on at a hotel and as the parade of nations started, I thought really? I heard the commentators talking about all the stuff that had been going on in the world rather than the athletes. I turned it off and […]
This time of year, cotton plants start holding a special kind of allure…. there are lots of beautiful blooms and farmers are getting a good feel for what harvest will bring! And aerial cotton photos especially grab my imagination! My dear friend Marjory and her colleague Lance couldn’t stay in the office any more and […]
Last week I took several vacation days and while I found lots of time to see some brand new sights in New Mexico that left me at a loss for words, I also saw something so familiar…. something I hadn’t really see much of. I saw a few fields of cotton. With my schedule this […]
So excited that I can share this link to the Marketing Smarts Podcast that published last week! The interview, a conversation with Kerry O’Shea Gorgone, covers a wide range of topics related to the work I do at Monsanto, the way we have been engaging in the broader conversation about food and the way a B2B gets […]
Growing tomatoes is something that just seems to make a person more Southern. I’ve grown them at various times in my life and my grandmom usually had tomato plants. And I can’t help but think of a scene in Steel Magnolias where Ouiser is dumping tomatoes on people and says she has to grow them […]
This blog post is a draft of comments I plan to make at my mom’s retirement party today. I’m sure I will make some changes in it as I say it — I am really bad with scripts! — but it will probably be close to what I say/said. When I was asked if I […]
I drove back from Memphis the other day and had to stop at a berry farm…. was so excited that blackberries are coming in. I bought a bunch of them…. a couple of quarts thinking it was high time for blackberry cobbler and it really was! I had to get my grandmom’s blackberry cobbler recipe […]
I got some of the seeds and plants for my container garden from my employer Monsanto at no cost to me.We are doing a great container garden there too and it inspired me to give it another go at home. I was not asked to write about the garden and the opinions here are mine and […]
International travel and planning for it is so exciting. Choosing countries and cities to go to. Thinking about the new cultures you’ll get to know and new people to meet. The break from your day-to-day routine. And so much more. With all of that, passports are frequently an afterthought for those of us who have […]
Some of you may remember me writing about the awesomeness of my girl Danyelle Little aka The Cubicle Chick. Well, recently I was lucky enough to spend a bit of time talking with her about personal branding and various practices on social media for this week’s episode of the WORK IT podcast. Listening to the podcast […]
For the last couple of years, I have been able to attend South by Southwest (SxSW) with work. First-time SxSW attendees can look shell-shocked. Each year I have learned a bit more about how to make my SxSW experience successful. And as I asked in a blogger group if others would be going, someone asked […]
