I like soup. I could eat it every day. Unfortunately for me, my husband and boys don’t like it that often. They would be fine if we had it twice a month. Unfortunately for them, I make it once a week. It helps use up vegetables, is really cheap and, if you use a gelatin […]

Dear Momma, Don't Feel Guilty. A post about rest for tired mommas and the guilt they might feel.

Dear Momma of Littles, Do you long for a moment of silence when your world seems like chaos? Does that make you feel guilty? Do you anticipate your workout/gym time/long run because it means a break from little voices who need to tell you who they are pretending to be that day, how they are […]

It has been just over two months since returning to a grain free diet for myself. It is much easier this second time around. Last year Cameron, Seth and I were all grain free for four and a half months. That time we were concentrating on Seth’s belly and immune system, this time it is […]

Seth had had fun at Grandma’s cutting out and decorating gluten free sugar cookies and he was begging to make some of our own.
