The Sugar Free Grain Free Life

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

Not All Driveways are Created Equal

If you happen upon my driveway and turn off the road you will find yourself surrounded by nothing but woods. If you keep going, soon you won't see the road from which you turned or the house at the end sitting in a small clearing. Every time I make this drive I savor those few magical moments… Continue reading Not All Driveways are Created Equal

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 Lies “They” Tell

Skin, the largest organ on our body, absorbs almost 60% of what we put on it into the blood stream. There is no filter. It would be better to drink your shampoo than to put in on your skin.

Chemical Fears of A Mother

When I discovered I was expecting my first child I went about pregnancy much as I would have any other situation. Educate myself on what I should know, make decisions and move in their direction without prejudice or fear.

Anam Baile is Gaelic. Loosely translated it means Spirit Home. I started this blog to organize my brain. I have a very clear vision of what life should be for my family.
