My Simple Stew Formula!

I made an interesting discovery this week... It has been a crazy/fun/humbling learning curve- raising Peter so far, as I'm sure it will continue to be! One thing that has been ever-changing is... my diet. I did not realize that Peter would be so influenced by my diet already. Most days he is so happy and mellow, but some days he would wake up screaming and would just seem so uncomfortable for hours and hours. It was horrible! Nothing I did was helping to relieve his pain. It was making me so sad and helpless to see him suffer without the ability to help him...ugh! Luckily, it is easy for me to know what I have eaten recently because I...

The Significance of the Gifted-Sourdough

 Danggit! Not Another one! Yet another sour-brick! I could build a small house with all of the sour bricks I have baked in the past few years... I SUCK at making sourdough bread... I have been trying for years to make the perfect loaf and the soft, bubbly, loaf of my dreams still evades me. But you know, I seemed to be able to procure eggs and bacon in the middle of winter this year- somehow... That got me thinking. A lot of the books I have read recently have talked about the concept of reciprocity. That for everything we take, we must give back in some way. In the book Braiding the Sweetgrass, the author sums it all up in...

Squeaky Clean on A Budget- Cutting Costs and Reducing Toxins in Your Home.

I have learned so much about cleaning this past year! I have cleaned as a side-job since I was in college, but it wasn't really until I became pregnant with Peter that I really started to increase my awareness of the ingredients in cleaning products I was using. I have gradually become aware of more and more additives and chemicals that are being found to have negative side effects on our health. So, naturally when I found out I was pregnant, I wanted to minimize exposure to any of the unneccesary toxins I could which, surprisingly, is actually pretty difficult when it comes to cleaning products. In fact, some really common brands produce several products that have been found to...

What the Wolf Moon Taught Me

Life Balance is something I have always struggled with.The moon and it's cycles remind me that the natural world thrives on cycles. Whether I want to admit it or not, we are part of the natural world and we have to participate in natural cycles to maintain balance.This weekend I spent a lot of time under the full moon thinking about recent changes and where they will lead us.I have been wondering how I might find balance with all of the new challenges in life that have arrived with becoming a new mother.I laid in the snow, looking up at the full moon which was sliding behind clouds of white, grey, and black, wondering about all of the changes, and...

As a Sword Needs a Whetstone...

"A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep it's edge." -George R.R. Martin As we look ahead in 2023, one of my favorite things to do is to gather up a list of books to read over the year. I keep a running To-Read-List and when the year turns over, I look at which books I read and which ones I added throughout the year and I create my new list. I'm so lucky to have a lot of friends who send me great reading recommendations! Some come from podcasts, some from people I follow on social media, some from business mastermind communities, and a few of them come from my husband, Chris!...
