  1. While not a trusty shovel, I had to recently bid farewell to my longtime faithful morning companion, my coffee maker. It’s hard to say goodbye!

    If you’re in the market for a new shovel, I’d encourage you to check out the Garden Tool Co. Blake Shreck and his wife advertised last summer on the gardening website I manage as my day job, and they have some great, sturdy tools to choose from. (And no, I don’t get any finder’s fees or commissions for sending folks their way; I just love getting – and sharing – personal recommendations for small and/or local businesses whenever possible.)
