Happy Martin Luther King Day

A restful day

I just dropped my son off at school and I want to go back to bed. I feel tired and my nose is stuffy. I haven’t been feeling well for the past few days and it’s time to acknowledge it and start taking care of myself. Everyone I’ve come in contact with last week was…

National Night Out Day

Today is National Night Out Day and we went out. Our local fire station had crafts for the kids, lots of snacks, goodie bags and even a clown that talked to the kids about safety. My son enjoyed looking at a real firetruck up close. I took home a child identification kit, it’s small enough…

It's been way too long

Hello blog! I didn’t mean to neglect you for so long. My life has been really busy lately. It has been filled with big changes, problems, solutions and a big house remodel. At times I’ve felt overwhelmed. Like I just didn’t have it in me to do that “one more thing” that needed to be…

A mini juice fast and some major decluttering

Yesterday I decided to do a one day juice/blended food fast to give my body a break. I have been eating a lot of salt lately, mainly in the form of miso.  In just 6 days I had 6 bowls of miso soup, I love the flavor of miso, but that’s way too much salt…

Stop growing so fast

I hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day. Last week was such a big week, my son graduated from Kindergarten and school came to an end. I wasn’t prepared for either event. Yes, that’s my son’s tie, it was his idea to wear one! He was very excited to graduate, and I was excited to…

Day 27 100% raw: Dealing with emotions

This 30 day 100% raw challenge has been an eye opening experience for me. As you know from my last post I’m not 100% raw anymore, I’m more like 90% raw. But percentages don’t really matter to me; the important thing is I’m eating more living foods. I’m also going through a period where I’m re-evaluating…
