WEEK 1 Dairy Free

WEEK 1 The first week went well enough. On day one we made some vegan biscuits. On day two I felt like a champ when I chose some minestrone soup for lunch but then I ate some of my son’s corn dog breading- not really sure what’s in that but it’s probably not vegetarian friendly since it was touching a…

Near the beginning of this year I started reading some books about veganism and I’ve watched a few movies about it too. I’ve been so curious about it and how people live that ‘hard’ lifestyle!

Motherhood is a river

Motherhood is like a river, a wild river, a long river, a changing river. At times it’s small and vulnerable. At times it’s over flowing- the water, the love, the milk. Always making a new path. Always nourishing. Feeding us, cleaning us, giving us everything freely. They are strong, they are wise within, they are calm, they are raging. Keep them…

Happy New Year!

I usually have the same resolutions every year, eat better and drink more water. So far this year I’ve been thinking about resolutions and my hopes for the new year. I want to be more specific with my hopes and try to follow through with my resolutions. A few of my hopes include:

Essential Oil Diffuser Gift Set

Christmas is coming quick and it’s hard to think of unique gifts for everyone. We recently bought the Aglaia 500ml Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser for our home and we love it. This would be a great gift for a friend or loved one. Diffusers are a great way to keep your house smelling clean, calm, romantic or however you wish it…
