The first flowers of Spring always bring a little bit of competition and a lot of Joy.

she is feeling the call to serve her Dominant.
Come slowly – Eden!
Come slowly – Eden!
Lips unused to Thee –
Bashful – sip thy Jessamines –
As the fainting Bee –
Reaching late his flower,
Round her chamber hums –
Counts his nectars –
Enters – and is lost in Balms.

The equinox will arrive at 5:58 p.m. ET on today, less than four hours before the full supermoon. In the Northern Hemisphere, the equinox is the official start of spring, but in the Southern Hemisphere, it marks the beginning of autumn.
March’s full moon is sometimes called the “worm moon,” because according to folklore tradition, it occurs at a time when the frosty ground is melting and earthworms start to emerge.
The moon reached its closest point to Earth on Tuesday at 3:47 p.m. ET, but the moon won’t be full until Wednesday at 9:43 p.m. ET. The moon is usually about 240,000 miles away from Earth, but at perigee this month, it will come within about 223,300 miles of our planet, according to NASA
But what is an equinox? It’s the year’s first “equal night,” meaning that on Wednesday, we Earth-dwellers will see about 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night.
On the equinox, the Earth will also begin to tilt so that the North Pole gets more sun, making it spring here in the Northern Hemisphere and fall in the southern. It officially “marks the turning point when daylight begins to win out over darkness,” according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.
Wishing you an excellent week.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
dievca’s using James Brown to get her going this morning.
Maybe you need some “get on up”, too.
The speedier version!
Channeling the Island Scene in the Thomas Crown Affair (1999 Version), dievca loves the breezes offered by tropical island life. A very different type of island living compared to Manhattan.

WHAT’S IN A NAME? (A note from Joelle)
I’m often asked how to pronounce “Hamabla” (it’s huh-MAH-bla) and what on Earth it means. Hamabla was my late grandmother’s name, but we didn’t know that until days before she died. An Italian immigrant, going through the immigration process, Hamabla became Mabel, but she was always Grandma Mae to us.
My grandmother was an incredibly hardworking woman. The kind of working woman who spent her days at a factory-job, raising four kids along the way, while still finding time for her many passions. She was a chef, baker, gardener, seamstress, sculptor and storyteller. These weren’t once in a while pursuits, they defined her life and fed her soul. I remember watching her in her 80s tending to the tomatoes in her garden and marveling at the boundless energy and zest for life she still possessed.
Her motto in life was “a little bit of everything,” and it’s a core value of this company I founded in her name. She believed that a full life included an assortment of hard work, creativity and time for friends and family.
I continue to be inspired by Grandma Mae’s grace, gumption, and authenticity. I gave this company her name because it was something unexpected, mysterious almost, like a little gift that makes the soul smile.
Despite the naysayers who advised me against such an “unmarketable” name, I held my ground because Hamabla is not about trend or fad or popular opinion. It’s about doing what you love, staying true to your passions and embracing “a little bit of everything” that makes you happy in life.

Have you ever had a tough week, expended all your energy and just passed out?
