timeofmylife_uws Let me start this post with a disclaimer-I have been an Amazon Prime Whore for YEARS! We ditched Comcast and went all in with Amazon Fire TV as our primary media source. Did anybody catch the front page NYT article about Amazon's Bruising, Thrilling Workplace? In not sure how I feel about supporting a company with a corporate culture that regularly brings seasoned professionals to tears during peer reviews and feedback sessions. WTF?! I am a bit of a data hound and applaud Jeff Bazos for an organization that lives and dies by the data. What I struggle with is the continual push of workers and what they will accept as normal and ok. Sending an email at midnight and the. Texting the recipient in the wee hours because there's been no reply is crazy. "Managing people out" because they need time to recover from illness or tragedy is unacceptable and now I have to co spider my entire relationship with Amazon... Just because employees consider themselves fortunate to have a job does not give the employer a license to push and bully people... 2w

timeofmylife_uws #tbt to a long time ago when @ginalynn1981 was just a little peanut and my grandpa trimmed our nails on the back stoop. My grandpa was a really cool guy and I miss him. You couldn't find a kid in the neighborhood that didn't consider him grandpa. 3w

timeofmylife_uws I can't fit the entire lettuce leaf in a square frame. Remind me again why we need @monsantoco to feed the wold and why organic, vertical gardening is not the way of the future? Less water, less space, and zero pesticides. Every hospital, school, and home should be feeding people with a #towergarden *end rant* 4w
  •   hokiesfan @timeofmylife_uws I just saw something on like 20:20 that was talking about doctors prescribing food as medicine!! Why not hospitals!!! 4w
  •   timeofmylife_uws Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit has a greenhouse that feeds the entire hospital population both staff and patients. There are several airports with tower gardens and a few rooftop tower gardens in NYC. We have an elementary school here in fruitland park that has salad bar 3 times a week from their towers and the kids help grow and tend the towers! @hokiesfan 4w
  •   hokiesfan @timeofmylife_uws totally need more of that in the world for sure!!!! 4w

timeofmylife_uws So I didn't have anybody watching my #towergarden while I was gone for a week and it wasn't a big deal. I was expecting to come home to some droopy and dis colored greens, but instead I came home to ALL THIS MINT! I also see three little cucumbers and my tomatoes are so much happier now that I installed the cage for them to climb on. #towertotable is pretty amazing and as organic as you can find! 4w
  •   timeofmylife_uws I will feed you from my tower when you visit #towertopiehole 4w
  •   carmello665 Awesome! 4w
  •   timeofmylife_uws Missy!! You need one of these!!! @carmello665 4w
  •   mlreeve229 Yah, so excited for you that your garden is taking off! Who knew you just needed a little vacation for it to happen :) 4w
  •   blackgirlspaleo This looks amazing!! How do you keep hungry critters away? 3w
  •   timeofmylife_uws @blackgirlspaleo hey Queen, I love my tower garden. We have a fence around our yard and I suppose that helps. I'm in FL so there are critters, but they haven't disturbed my tower at all. I planted tomatoes in the ground next to my tower and I think those brought the bugs more than anything. I think I'll get another tower before I do any more gardening in the ground. Check out the tower garden website for details. The technology is amazing and I've found the company to be great to work with! 3w
  •   blackgirlspaleo @timeofmylife_uws thanks for the info! I'll be moving to a more urban area by next growing season. So I'm looking for all the ways I can grow my own foods with limited space. Vertical growing is the hope for the future! 3w

timeofmylife_uws I spy one dang tomato...I'm not a tomato sandwich kind of girl, but I was hoping to make some salsa and maybe can some #whole30 Romesco Sauce. The rain has pushed the plants against the house. Pretty sure I'm going to be all #towergarden next season... Grow your own, even if it's just 1. 2mon
  •   _bri_bro It's a cute little ! 2mon
  •   sarahschmidt7 I only have one so far too, and my plant isn't looking the greatest so I doubt I'll get more :( need to plant more next year! 1mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws There is a guy in the subdivision next to ours that lets his tomato plants fall and grow on the ground! @sarahschmidt7 I've been trying so hard not to let them fall but it hasn't helped. My blooms at the top of the plants are falling off vice blooming into fruit! 1mon
  •   mlreeve229 All I can think is he's one delicious looking tomato!! Was he?? 1mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws I guess I should harvest him lol @mlreeve229 1mon

timeofmylife_uws Donate Life! This time eight years ago I was being taken into surgery so this guy could have my kidney, he was my neighbor at the time. I never could have imagined the adventures we would have from there forward. Are you an organ donor? Don't forget to check that box on your license, visit a dialysis center and be inspired, and humbled, and thankful. There has been no greater gift in my life than this experience. Eight years post transplant and 6 months into marriage I couldn't imagine my life without you, Alex! @wsh_69 There is no greater gift than time. I am grateful for the time we have shared and the life we have made together 3mon
  •   striving4zennyc I love it!! Such a beautiful story!! 3mon
  •   brusselssprout_in_manhattan What a great story! You could make a movie out of it! And congrats on your wedding! 🏻 Oh and, with the new NYCid, they make it so easy here to become an organ donor. Done and done! #nobrainer 3mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws Hey friend! @brusselssprout_in_manhattan someday I'll write the book! ️ so glad to hear they are making it easy for folks to donate! 3mon
  •   nmiri What a beautiful story! Love story!! This should be a movie3mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws Thank you, Nadia @nmiri 3mon
  •   erin_cristin Good God, this is beautiful! I love you guys! This hits home so much more after my sister had a heart and lung transplant, although she didn't make it afterwards, it was still a miracle. I'm truly so happy for you guys. Celebrate Life! 2mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws Oh we love you! @erin_cristin Funny you just popped up, we were talking about you and Ksusha to our neighbors. Having the "do you really meet new friends on social media discussion" and of course we couldn't wait to say YES! Yes, you can meet and make new friends online. I had no idea about your sister-and I'm so sorry she's only with you in spirit now. We all meet again, Erin. That's the best news, we're all part of a wonderful soul family and we meet again and again. I count you as part of my wolf pack for sure! Love you 2mon
  •   erin_cristin @timeofmylife_uws aww, every word you wrote is wonderful...so happy to be a part of your wolf pack! ;) <3 2mon

timeofmylife_uws My dad is having bypass surgery as I type. This gentleman here is from an organization called Mended Hearts. It is an organization of volunteers that have all gone though the same heart surgery. What a gem, a really kind soul. He is admittedly more emotional after his bypass. The heart is our center and once opened its hard to close for some folks (figuratively speaking). Live you purpose, people. Say what you need to say and open your heart. 3mon
  •   hokiesfan continuing to send prayers dear! 3mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws Thank you IG family! light and love to all @fullhouse4 @theuncredible @ksusha @hokiesfan 3mon
  •   lfcintron @timeofmylife_uws hug each other tightly! 3mon
  •   p.s.0505 Wishing him a speedy recovery Amers!! 3mon
  •   brusselssprout_in_manhattan Wishing your dad a speedy recovery! 3mon
  •   erin_cristin Beautiful words...sounds like a beautiful experience with this guy. I pray all the best for your dad, thanks for sharing. You know my sis was on ecmo/bypass for a couple weeks...it is an amazing machine...and an amazing experience to have a loved one in surgery on their heart. Love to you and your family! 2mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws I didn't know-how did I not know about your sister?! @erin_cristin I feel like I missed out. My dad is home since Sunday and it's been amazing to see his progress. He's been a little weepy, and filled with Love for all of us. Thanks for leaving a note, I would love to see you again, but I suppose I'll have to settle for Instagram for now.. 2mon
  •   erin_cristin @timeofmylife_uws yeah, I didn't really share it, it was and is still really hard to fathom...I'm still in denial....but she had a beautiful baby girl Lana that I'm sharing pics and videos of her :-) I would love to see you too...until then, I love seeing instagram posts and what's going on with you :-) 2mon

timeofmylife_uws Tower Garden is up and running!! In the background you can see my tomatoes that have caterpillars and my cucumbers and squash are being eaten by something. I'm pretty excited about vertical gardening, it should be a lot less dirty and free of nasty FL bugs- fingers crossed! 3mon
  •   _bri_bro It's a jetson garden. Not sure if this makes you Jane or Rosie... But if you're Jane - you should get a Rosie 3mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws Hahahah I do need a Rosie-we both do! 3mon
  •   carmello665 Thats sweet where did you get that? 3mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws @carmello665 check out http://www.towergarden.com they were developed by a guy that worked at The Land at Epcot. Not sure if you have been to the Land? They grow most of the fresh produce for the park. They have a deal where you can pay for it over 12 months no interest, I think it comes out to $45 a month. The best part is it will fit on any porch, or balcony. I'm a little behind, I should have been sprouting seeds months ago, but down here I'll be able to have it outside all year round. Let me know if you want to chat about it-this would be perfect for you!!! 3mon
  •   brusselssprout_in_manhattan What are you growing in the tower? 3mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws All kinds of stuff! @brusselssprout_in_manhattan lettuces (bib, arugula, red), red Russian kale, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppermint, green peppers, Oregano... All the veggies! 3mon

timeofmylife_uws Kind of obsessed with @primallifeorg 's Peppermint Tooth Powder and Bare Face Moisturizer. I'm excited to try the Bare Face Wash! Handmade with love Thank you, Trina! 4mon
  •   striving4zennyc Ooh. I'm looking for a new natural toothpaste! How does the powder work? @primallifeorg 3mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws @striving4zennyc I LOVE this stuff! My husband loves it. I have only tried the peppermint and it's great for everyday. I also have the peppermint with charcoal, I think it's called dirty mouth tooth powder. It's a really awesome natural whitening powder that works far better than I ever expected. I also love the dirty mouth gum serum. I put it on my gums and then use my water pick to massage it into my gums. I've used a few natural pastes (Redmond earth paste etc.) and find the tooth powder far superior and not gritty. This is it for me, I've found my forever tooth powder/paste! Let me know if you give it a try, I don't think you would be disappointed! @primallifeorg Customer Service is also great. My fat fingers selected the wrong item and I didn't realize until the order was complete. The ladies were really responsive and fixed it no problem! 3mon
  •   striving4zennyc This is great!! So helpful!! I'll go check out the site 3mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws Excellent!! I can't wait to hear what you think! @striving4zennyc Sidebar, I thought of you the other day. I ordered a @towergardenofficial and I'm going to try some vertical growing along with my beds. My seeds are sprouting now, and I'll be posting some pics when they are ready to plant in the tower. It would have been perfect in NYC small spaces! 3mon
  •   striving4zennyc I considered growing some stuff indoors in my NYC place but I was afraid it would bring bugs Meanwhile, ever since I planted, it's been raining here, literally every day. Should be great for the garden! 3mon
  •   timeofmylife_uws It's going to be interesting, and I can't lie, bugs in FL is a concern for sure I'll let you know how it goes! Your garden is going to love that rain...can't wait to see as you begin to harvest @striving4zennyc 3mon
  •   striving4zennyc Me too! My greens, carrots and beets will be juiced for sure! Looking forward to watching yours grow too 3mon
