2016 | What I’ve got planned for Four Leaf Clover & wanting your input

Happy 2016! I’m feeling really good about this year and I hope you are, too! I’ve got a lot of things planned out for this year (and not planned, but I know they’re going to happen…sooometiiime…) in life and for Four Leaf Clover! No, I don’t really make resolutions anymore, but it’s a pretty good […]

The real price of dairy

This short video is so powerful. I couldn’t watch this and not share. How we allow this to happen, all the time, I don’t understand. How this is the norm… I can’t understand. Actually, this is by no means the worst of the dairy industry. Humans are the only species that drink milk past infancy […]

Random dreams, beautiful blooms & entwining them into daily life

When I was a little girl, I went to visit my grandparents in Poland and one of my grandma’s had a house in the countryside. Past the house, the farm and the stables, she had an amazing, huge wild flower garden. It made a lasting impression on me and I’m sure it’s had a huge […]

In the middle

The other day, I took a walk in the woods. In the middle of the walk, in the middle of the forest, as it happened, there was an unexpected, beautiful little spot. It’s a reservoir surrounded by trees, a pathway with benches, and in the water there is a floating island of trees and bushes. […]

Blogging may not be my life, but it sure does add to it in the best possible way

Where to start?! Hello! Thank you for sticking around/visiting. Not updating FLC for the past two weeks was mostly helpful due to the fact that every time I visited I was able to see Miciek‘s happy little face. It was the best thing I could have done. Since I can’t see Miciek anymore and can’t […]


My beloved, adorable, amazing Miciek died today. He was very sick and died at home with my family, incidentally, while I was skyping with them. It was very unexpected for me, because I had hope that he would get better and the thought that he would die wouldn’t cross my mind. I already miss him […]

What’s your life tip?: anger

I’m going to start off by saying sorry, this isn’t my usual life tip. I have many life tips lined up to share with all of you, but the past few days I may have had a couple of real rainbows, but am far from rainbow or even sunny moments. This morning I woke up […]

Just a little update…

It’s been so warm these past few days, I’d gladly jump into a lake. I’d gladly spend all day outside, but I’d probably melt. I find myself dreaming of popsicles and those freezy pops I used to eat all the time as a kid. You know… I almost lost you last week. My battery on […]

Fantasy fiction novels & why they belong on FLC

Someone mentioned to me that a few of my readers may be confused as to why I post action alerts about how to help animals, the environment, human rights, vegan recipes and then do what seems like a 180 and feature a fantasy fiction book review. In my “welcome” to the side I mention that […]

The life that is waiting for us

First, I want to thank you for your awesome comments on my A good dose of teen literature post. I wasn’t expecting so many positive comments, especially about books labeled “teen”, so I was really pleasantly surprised. It was a nice reminder that I really should be myself completely on here and not fear the […]
