It's not important that you know how or what to eat when you decide to use food to find health. It's different for every person. I can't tell you what foods heal and what foods harm you. I can only tell you what myself and my children need to eat and I'm still learning. Today… Continue reading The Sugar Free Grain Free Life

And so it came to pass... Another year in the life of my tiny little baby who magically turned 5 when I blinked. Each year I think,  time can't possibly go any faster and yet, it does.

The Mafia of Utah

  At 7:30 this morning I was jolted awake by my sweet Rosie barking her little, more like extremely large, head off.

Suburban Housewife or Earth Mother Hippie?

Who am I supposed to be? Who do I want to be?  Who SHOULD I be? My mind is a world unto itself. When I relay my dreams to my husband he is most always incredulous.

Toddler Life Lessons From Jacques Pepin

As a parent we get to enjoy the education of life that takes place in the world of our children. Sometimes it's joyous, sometimes it's heartbreaking and sometimes it's both. This is one of those "both" moments. I watch tv on my Ipad in bed. No, it's really not healthy to watch tv before falling… Continue reading Toddler Life Lessons From Jacques Pepin
