Last year at a gender reveal party (it was a boy!) a good friend told me about her latest hobby: beekeeping. It was inspiring to hear her speak passionately about the bee crisis in America and the importance of preserving the honeybee population. Did you know that bees have pollinated every third bite of your food? Imagine if bees were wiped out? Say good-bye to your apple, almonds, and blueberries- not to mention HONEY. I immediately became obsessed with researching honeybees and becoming a beekeeper. ThatGuy, in his infinate wisdom and budget-conscious ways, urged me to wait until next bee season to make sure this was something I really wanted to spend my time and money on.
It was and is. In fact, I dragged ThatGuy into the whole thing!

|It's a good thing we didn't go with 10 hives... 2 is a lot!|
We could have gotten them already painted... but I wanted to have some DIY fun!
