Very exciting day!
Today is Proposal Day (there are 2 of them and they happen on the Spring & Fall Equinoxes) and people are encouraged to pop the question today. Many people around the world get married today as well (those who got engaged at the Fall Equinox Proposal Day, I suppose). So on that note, please check out my engagement portrait contest (and enter it). The contest will end at the end of the month, so you have just about 10 days!
On a separate note, you may have heard, but in case you didn’t, the Obama White House has decided to add an organic garden to the White House lawn! Many groups (myself included) have requested (either directly or through petitions and on line forums, I didn’t get to do the first one, sadly) over the last few months that the Obamas set an example for the rest of the country with a Victory Garden much like during WWII. Michelle Obama has been supporting healthy eating in places like soup kitchens as well as her own, so this is just the next step, in my opinion. It’s super exciting!
