Whether you’ve been inspired by Marie Kondo or not, you probably still have close to a third of a million items in your home. One report found that the average U.S. house has around 300,000 things in it. Yeah, we like stuff. Lots of stuff.

Thanks Dave!

I grew up being told about the benefits of dandelions, but I always saw them as nothing more than an annual yard invader to be gotten rid of at all costs.

Did you know?

It also makes great wine! When we get dandelions, we get LOTS OF DANDELIONS! They are everywhere! Along the driveway, in the garden, in the yard – hundreds (maybe thousands?) of dandelions. What do you do when you're overrun with dandelions? Eat them – and make some wine! The boys and I got picking and we gathered a large bowl full of dandelion flowers for wine and cookies, plus some greens for a decoration. (Boy photos are from 2010. They have grown quite a bit since then, but I kept these photos here for the happy memories.)

Not sure where this fits so I'm starting a new topic! So let's see if it takes off!

Do you have any fun facts to add to this?
