Team Me & The Bees wishes our fearless leader, Mikaila, a happy, happy birthday!

    We hope she has an awesome day and the best year yet as she puts her new mantra of “balance” into play. She works so hard to balance her “buzzy” schedule of being a senior in high school, applying to colleges, finding ways to enjoy quality time with friends and family and, of course, running Me & The Bees Lemonade! We know she will totally rock it this year and every year. Happy 17th, Mikaila!

A SUMMER OF LEARNING: BUZZING AROUND THE GALAPAGOS ISLANDS
I hope everyone is having a great summer. It sure has been a meaningful one for me as I was fortunate enough to go to the Galapagos Islands with a group of friends. It was one of the coolest trips ever and I learned so much...including about rock formations, evolution, biodiversity, and even about the bees!  Check out this video of me interviewing Christina, a naturalista (park ranger) with Quasar Expeditions who I spent an entire week with going from island to island. She and two other guides showed us the many animal species unique to the Galapagos, including the blue-footed...

Celebrating National Pollinator Week

National Pollinator Week is happening this week, June 21-27. It was created by the Pollinator Partnership to address the decline of pollinator populations worldwide. This educational celebration includes birds, bees, butterflies, bats and beetles.  Bees rely on their colony to take on large tasks and make sure that the goal gets accomplished. We have to be like the bees and give back to our ecosystem to ensure that the pollinators can keep doing their job to keep us happy and healthy. I try to do my part to help protect and save pollinators. Here is my list of the top...

Why Dads Are the Bee's Knees

Why Dads Are the Bee's Knees

  With Father’s Day quickly approaching, I wanted to take time to buzz about my dad. Everyone says they have the best dad, but I think I really do. At Me & the Bees, we call my dad the Chief Worker Bee. He's the head of operations and finance and has taught me great financial lessons that have helped shape my interest in business. My earliest lesson was to give, save and then spend money - in that exact order. He's insistent about giving first to an important cause or to others in need when you begin earning money. Then,...
