Steph’s Smitten List: Lucky Numbers, Glow, Butterfly Gardens


This week, I’m positively smitten with:

1. Lucky Numbers: Seeing how today is the 15th day of the month, I have to give a shout out to one of my favorite/lucky numbers. It seems that good things have come my way on the 15th. From new cars and new homes to new jobs, there’s been reason to look forward to this special day. Even the year 2015 has exciting things in store for me: my wedding, a new niece or nephew (yet to make his or her arrival), and so much more, I’m sure!

2. Glow: It can be a little awkward to talk about your monthly cycle, but one app – which I’ve begun using- makes it seem less taboo, and even helps us understand how everything sort of works. Glow is a great app for taking control of your reproductive health, whether you’re planning for pregnancy or avoiding it. I use it as a handy little log for tracking my cycle, reading health tips, and getting reminders. It has a very large community where people comment on various topics — I like these forums because the discussions make me feel normal when it comes to things I’ve wondered about my body and reproductive system!

3. Butterfly Gardens: Now that the weather is warming up, I’m so anxious to head outdoors to work in my gardens. This year’s project is to create a butterfly garden, an environment designed to attracts butterflies. Using my green thumb is fun in general, but selecting certain plants and colors with the intention of attracting beautiful butterflies is even more rewarding.  


What are you smitten with?
