What’s Your Herb Personality?

By | April 19, 2014

Recently I was given an opportunity to try a new experience on the Traditional Medicinals site.  They’re a company that makes delicious, organic herbal teas.  I had used their pregnancy tea when I was pregnant with my second baby, so we actually reached out to them.  They had an interesting program going on that I Read More

The One Where I Tell You A Story About Illness….

By | April 16, 2014

Image by TheGiantVermin I have a story to tell you.   You decide what to make of it.  It’s only a story, my personal experience.  I’ll share my own thoughts and conclusions about it, but feel free to reject them and come to your own.  This is purely anecdotal, and not scientific in any way.  Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: What Are the Best Baby Shoes?

By | April 14, 2014

Image by moline My littlest baby is not so much a baby anymore. Nathan is now 13 months old and is crawling and cruising everywhere — and sometimes, taking steps.  Unlike my other babies (who all walked around 11 months), he’s much more interested in trying to talk or manipulating things with fine motor control.  But Read More

Recipe Collection: Buttermilk Spice Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Buttercream

By | April 10, 2014

This…there is no words. Okay, I’m never speechless, so I can think of some.   I had some buttermilk left in my fridge and I wasn’t sure what to do with it.  Then somehow, this idea popped into my head.  I can’t claim that these are healthy — not whatsoever.  No way.  But I can tell you Read More

Why We’re Starting a Homeschooling Coop

By | April 4, 2014

I haven’t talked about homeschooling in quite awhile.  Mostly because a lot of what we do in real life (cooking/eating, crafts, homeschooling, etc.) I think, while I’m in the middle of it, “Oh, I should blog about this.”  Only then I don’t, because I’m too busy living it to stop and take pictures and document Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Why We Soak Our Grains

By | March 24, 2014

Grains are a confusing and controversial issue.  People vary in their approach – eat whole grains, eat only soaked/sprouted/soured grains, grains are bad for you, etc.  Unfortunately this can get very divisive, with some assuming that what works for them is “the” answer.  They even trot out research to share their position and try to Read More

When It’s Not a Choice: Measles or Driving While Tired

By | March 21, 2014

Image by The Sure Chill Company More nonsense popped up in my feed today. It’s the story of a young boy with leukemia, who is exposed to the measles while in the hospital.  The mother passionately describes her stress at waiting out the 21-day incubation period, praying her immunno-compromised son doesn’t end up developing the Read More
