On this month’s episode of Could Be Better, we indulge in some speech therapy practice as J. heads towards recovery from a brain hemorrhage. Can you say “editor’s letter” without blending the sounds together? We warm up with a ginger-liqueur cider but say “tag for hate” on another outdoor entertaining suggestion. We’re in for the chocolate spice cake skewers, though. There’s a lot of food in the February issue but we do have paint can lids in mint green. A less polarizing pastel? We decide. Also: indoor gardening, another white room, and a retro 1950s room straight out of the ’70s. Get your magazine, follow along and practice your speech therapy! Signature cocktail: ginger-pear cider warmer. Music by Bensound.com. Credits by Tim Lawton.
Spring has sprung! Gardening has begun. And the only thing that perks us up more than tulips and daffodils is hot gardeners.
It’s true, we swooned over Urban Farmer, Kyle Hagerty, on the cover of Better Homes and Gardens’ March 2018 issue. His website Urban Organic Gardener and YouTube Channel have kept our squashes growing all year long.
Matt Mattus has us dreaming of big…gladiolas. He declared them #ontrend in BHG March 2019 issue.
Lest you think we only Tag print-media hotties for Love, we completely agreed with Queerty.com when they declared Gab the Gardener an Instastud based on his IG feed. Gabriel Rochard is multi-talented. Just the way we like our gardeners.
And our ode to hot gardeners couldn’t be complete without getting pumped over Bravo’s “BackYard Envy” host, Garrett Magee. This mustachioed hunk might make some think “70s gay porn star.” We’re totally okay with that. We love #retro!
Shirts off to lots and lots of hot gardeners all Spring, Summer, and Fall!
Are you a hugger?
Do you wanna greet everyone with a great, big bear hug?
Or maybe you just like a quickie. You know–a quick hug before jetting out the door to work or quick hug for the hosts when you arrive at that party.
Better Homes and Gardens’ recent post confirms it: if you’re a hugger you’re probably happier and healthier.
Research by Carnegie Mellon finds that hugs can serve as a buffer from a bad day.
We agree. Hugs are amazeballs. So, go ahead and hug away. It’s good for you!
