You may have been able to deduce from previous posts that we are a homebirthing kinda family. So as we prepare for our third homebirth, I wanted to share my top seven must-have's for labor and delivery. Even if this labor and delivery goes just as fast as the last one (30 minutes from transition… Continue reading My Top 7 Must-Have’s for Labor & Delivery
If you're a first-time Mom, frugal probably isn't part of your new baby vocabulary, but if you plan on adding to your tribe over the years to come...

Then… Continue reading Galilee Green EVOO… the best we’ve ever tried!

I didn't always like to cook. Nope. That was my sister. She was always in the kitchen with mom, taking in all the recipe secrets. I was always the furthest away from the kitchen... and now, I'm paying for it (to say the least).
