Reducing the amount of trash generated by Mardi Gras is one of my ultimate environmental goals. When Project Front Yard announced plans to follow the first parade of the Lafayette Mardi Gras season, of course I was there. While it was more about cleaning up the parade route than reducing litter, it was a very visible example to thousands of parade-goers that there's just SO MUCH TRASH. And of course, we all had a great time and a great workout!

March 14, 2015 was an awesome day! My boyfriend pulled off the perfect proposal in one of my favorite spots in town, and we can't wait for our big day in 2016!
To celebrate Earth Month this year, I launched a new blog design and had a weekly interview space with Matt on my favorite radio station, 106.3 Radio Lafayette. I loved sharing eco-friendly tips with listeners and getting to hang out with my old friend. He was even so nice as to let me pick my "intro" songs!
After almost 13 years, I said Bye Felicia to my Corolla and drove off in a Prius! And let's be honest, I don't even miss my old car.
I at least tried to turn 30 gracefully. My fiance and I spent the weekend in New Orleans, and we visited the aquarium and went bowling. I'm pretty sure I'm the one who almost fell asleep at the bar, not my fiance or my friend. This is 30, alright.
7. YogaI really got into my yoga practice this year, and pushed myself to new limits. Aerial is one of my favorite classes, and I'm glad to have found my little niche.
Loved getting to visit one of my favorite cities again.
9. HAAAAAANSON!!If I'm not known for being a crazy recycling treehugger, I'm known for being a Hanson fan. At at the very last minute, I added two more Hanson concerts to my roster. It was so nice to visit an old friend, Laura (my essential oils mentor and wedding photographer), visit New Orleans briefly, and oh, meet Isaac Hanson again.
And now, I'm really excited to see what my memorable moments of 2016 will be...besides my wedding, of course!
