Having A Home Birth: Sophia’s Birth Story

Having A Home Birth: Sophia’s Birth Story

Hooray!  Here’s to my 100th post and Sophia turning one month old! A month ago today, I held our brand new baby girl in my arms and was in love.  My prayers were answered and I had a successful VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) in the comfort of my own home-think Little House on the Prairie, as my uncle referenced.  The … Continue reading

Make Your Own Broth (Beef, Chicken, & Vegetable)

Make Your Own Broth (Beef, Chicken, & Vegetable)

I’ve been on this kick lately, especially since reading Primal Moms Look Good Naked, with making my own broth.  I would occasionally buy beef bones or hold on to the chicken carcass when I could remember, but now I have no excuse.  If you saw in an earlier post, we have half of a grass-fed cow in our freezer that we split with … Continue reading

This is something that I feel very strongly about and want to share with you!  Remember my post on getting kids adjusted along with pregnant mamas?  Well, this just got taken to a whole other level.

It’s about to get crunchy up in hur…so bear with me.  Don’t worry, I promise not to show actual pictures. I know you’re probably thinking, ‘Please tell me you’re not about to talk about eating your placenta, are you?’  ‘That’s disgusting!’  I know, I know, I was there just a short while ago, but I have … Continue reading

A Beachy 3rd Birthday

A Beachy 3rd Birthday

If you recently saw my Instagram pictures, you know that we celebrated Emma turning three a few weeks ago, on July 24th.  I’m still not sure why I never shared anything about her 2nd birthday and the ‘totally awesome twos,’ but I didn’t.  It has been a blast to watch her grow into a little girl over the … Continue reading

Emma’s Birth Story

Emma’s Birth Story

This post is only fitting, since I am now the proud mama to a 3-year-old. Here goes… I honestly never thought I’d do this, but I think it’s a must.  I want to get back into talking about my personal birth choices and feel it’s only fair to tell you where I’m coming from.  Emma’s birth doesn’t … Continue reading
