Breastfeeding joys

I'm about to talk about breastfeeding. If this bothers you, please read one of my past posts or go check out another blog. I won't hold it against you.  It's 11:30 pm and I am feeling very happy right now. After a long day of travel for a family wedding (7 hours in the car,… Continue reading Breastfeeding joys

Sunday dinners

We live with my mother-in-law right now, and Sunday evenings is when we all eat dinner together. My husband likes to cook, and it's always delicious...but tonight he actually did a themed dinner!  We ate outside, one of the lovely bonuses of summertime. There's something special about fresh air, good food, and being with family.… Continue reading Sunday dinners

Officially Summer

We unpacked the ice cream machine yesterday. Two batches have been made, both dairy-free, one egg-free (and of course both gluten-free, as goes with everything here). I got both recipes from Danielle Walker's first cookbook, Against All Grain. You can find it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble, along with her other two wonderful cookbooks. … Continue reading Officially Summer

Some days are stroller days 

When dealing with autoimmunity, balance is pretty important. You don't want to overdo your exercise, but that's not an excuse to just let it go. Today was a stroller day.

Plus, he thinks it's super special - win!  This recipe makes four popsicles, with 1oz… Continue reading NingXia Red Popsicles

Teething blues

It's amazing how different each child is from the next. This is our second teething baby (toddler, at this point, but I'm in denial) and how different it is! Big Brother was fairly peaceful about it; a little Camilia and his amber necklace was generally all he needed.  Little Brother...well, he seems to have a few… Continue reading Teething blues

Simplifying 

I'm going to be reading Marie Kondo's book The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and putting it into practice soon. I've been meaning to do this for a while, but after a peaceful week at a simple beach house, I was pushed over the edge from "want to" into "let's get it done already". We came home… Continue reading Simplifying

Bouchers do the beach!

We have arrived, and it is going to be a great week. We love coming here (it's a family place) and the vibe is just what we all need right now...a nice healthy dose of toes-in-the-sand fun. In fact, barely five minutes after we got out of the car, Big Brother was in his suit… Continue reading Bouchers do the beach!
