How to Keep Sane When Life Gets Crazy

container garden of herbs

WEver feel like you just need a vacation but, you have WAY too much going on to take one? Julia Roberts’s line from the movie Something to Talk About sums it all up: “I don’t have time for the nervous breakdown I deserve right now.”

This container of herbs helps to keep me sane these days—a little relief from the frenzy of construction. More than a simple kitchen garden, this precious pot of herbs is my aroma therapy garden and my attempt to channel Ina Garten!

Why not add a little Barefoot Contessa ease to your day and pot up a container of herbs!

I love this low wide container for herbs.

    Girl – I am inspired. I will get my gardener (that would be my husband!) right on it. Could you please share what herbs you included in the pot? I am green thumb illiterate.
    Love you
