Treasure Chest ~ of a different sort

Tarsha's Treasure Chest was born in early 2008 while I was an AmeriCorps*VISTA at Hillview. I needed a catchy caption for a small box of treasures incentives I had for kids in the Give, Save, Spend program I ran. I thought it was kind of cheesy, but it worked.

Then in the of fall 2008, I decided to blog about my adventures as a nanny, so my family could be 'in the know'. Since these stories would be my own treasures, Tarsha's Treasure Chest was carried over as the name of my blog. I even starting thinking of it as cool. :) I'd write about the kids, my family, and share poems, quotes and little pieces that represented me. Tarsha's Treasure Chest ~ my own little virtual place in the world where I store my treasures in pictures and words.

It took on a whole new meaning in the fall of 2009 as we started building my very own treasure chest. Harper Joy became the real Tarsha's treasure chest, encompassing so many things I love, built with so many people I love.

Here we are in the early spring of 2010, and I have incorporated another passion into my Treasure Chest. They also go by ta-tas, boobies, second base, or simply breast. I am walking another 60 miles and raising another $2300 for breast cancer awareness and research with my friend Kristina! My father is crewing in Boston as well on July 23-25. Our team name, none other than

Keep Our Treasure Chests!
