Fresh flowers from 1st date with a new friend…. I am a lucky and very happy girl ❤️. To receive flowers on a first date from 2 different men in a 2 week time period is completely unusual and unheard of based on my experience with dating in modern times. The best part is roses and sunflowers are my 2 favorites. A. Even better aspect is they are both really great guys. Lucky me❤️

There is nothing better than a man who gives you a dozen red roses on the first date….except for a man who exudes class with humor, grace, dignity, and respect. I’m already looking forward to next weekend ❤️

‘Dead white mans clothes’ is the terminology used to discuss fast fashion in Ghana. The majority of fast fashions life cycle analysis is spent rotting in a Ghanaian landfill.

I’ve been doing a tremendous amount of purging and revamping from donating lamps to purchasing a few new to me Le Creuset items to help cook an appreciated, nutritional diet to facilitate my new training regimen with a former NFL cheerleader and professional dancer. Imagine dancing in the YMCA pool versus dancing with the stars kind of hilarious comedy. The big purge of all…the antique writing desk Ty bought for me 4 years ago. I have loved this desk, everything from the rounded style to the composition written on its half moon surface, including the homeless documentary. I loved Ty deeply, but it feels good to finally purge the toxicity through tears tap dancing down my cheek. I’ve also met quite a few new friends recently, and I am looking forward to cultivating those relationships which help fuel my soul. I also am so blessed to have a new to me desk where i am already feeling a sense of accomplishment and am looking forward to finishing our documentary and moving forward with new and exciting ventures with exceptional people.

Those who know me well know that I want to be a foster parent in my 50s. This Christmas I gave some of our local foster teens merchandise from EcoChic Boutique. Almost 3 months later the teens are still grateful:
I just wanted to let you know how much the teens appreciated the gifts and your thoughtfulness. That someone was thinking of them during holidays was really meaningful to them. Thanks again!
Below is one teen's response recently:
"Also can you let the lady that owns the boutique know I said thank you so much!!"

Latest news from our dear friend and global partner, Krishna Gurung of www.KRMEF.org. Thank you for all of the wonderful work you do! Warmly, Gwen

Dear Friends,

The week ended with great joy! It’s been another fantastic week.
Our garden blossomed and we began to harvest plump, delicious biodynamic vegetables and fruits. We also received a good amount of visitors.

Students from Johnson and Wales University shared wonderful work and class presentations at the foundation as part of their study abroad program. We had a great time with them and they are now back in the US leaving a lot of great impressions here. They will be missed!

Our Keene State College (KSC) students did a fantastic job renovating the library and brought a new wave of color by painting upcycled car tires to plant flowers as part of our sustainable environment development (SED) program.

Students from University of Virginia (UVA), are doing great projects around Environmental Sustainability. We also have an intern from Germany doing her project on international relationship and sustainable development policy.

A few students from Parklands college South Africa had a short, yet impactful stay where they volunteered and also attended the presentation and lecture on sustainability.

We feel so privileged to have connections with all these academic institutions around the world and hope to have more in future. Not only are they bringing great enthusiasm and hard work, but they are connecting with people across multiple cultures and nations.

We have also been visited by a Nepali Agro veteran Mr. Madan Rai and exchanged some useful knowledge and stories. Our common goal is to mold Nepal into a sustainable country that aims to be environmentally conscious from every angle.

We also had some Nepali visitors along with Hari Thapa dai and made a trip to White house to explore the area.

Apart from all these activities, all our hard work is showing great payoffs. School is receiving more children and our teachers Kabita and Anamica attended a week long training seminar on child development in Chennai India.

We are continuously making savory plum jam both for our own use and for sale.
Mahila Shakti handicraft workshop is flourishing with the help from our students, almost all of whom have made bracelets for themselves.

I was invited for a lunch meeting at GATE college an excellent college for Tourism and Hopitality in Kathmandu. It was an honor to meet the founder/CEO Khem sir and all the team. It promised that our mutual work will go for long run.

We are grateful to many families from Israel and to some volunteers from Switzerland. Our New Zealand friends are doing great in the clinic and carpentry.

A lot of FUN !

This has always been our dream to make the foundation as a learning institution for many people around the world. Thank you so much to everyone who is involved for making this happen. I cannot wait for all the progress yet to come!

Day 4 - 8.23.18 - Does anybody remember Dinwiddie's in Broad Ripple? It is where Marky Mark and the funky bunch shopped while on tour. These jeans are from sophomore year in 1990 and are the inspiration behind what we're doing. On a side note, Managing Love had our first donation! A customer from London dropping her daughter off at UVA...we were talking about dorms and when I said, oh, she must be living in the new dorms....failing to recognize that they were new 25 years ago....she pointed out that they were indeed no longer new 😘
