Imagine this. You are driving on your way home or perhaps on vacation on a desert highway. The sunset colors soak the wildlife with contrast and beauty. Your favorite music is playing on your ipod, providing the soundtrack to compliment this stunning scenery.

When Rick (my husband) and I started The Green Garmento, we realized it would be a big departure from our day-to-day life working in the entertainment industry. Not only would we have to stop swearing like sailors, we'd have to learn a new, complicated business and speak a whole new language.
