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.

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. I love wearing my little one close and try to do it as often as I can, but I also recognize the fact that it… Continue reading Some days are stroller days

Essential oils for Disney trips

  No, the Bouchers are not doing Disney just yet - the boys are still too young to properly enjoy it (you can look forward to a post or three when we do finally get ourselves there). But if you love Disney and are planning a visit to the magic kingdom, I have some tips… Continue reading Essential oils for Disney trips

Naturally dyed Easter eggs

Easter Sunday is just two days away, and today Big Brother and I checked to see on the eggs we dyed overnight. I tried it two years ago and was a little disappointed with the results.

Child’s play

Big Brother enjoys playing with swords. Soft of course, but swords (and light sabers) are a very big hit right now. As we were playing today, I got both of his legs in one go because he let his focus wander. "Oh no, I've chopped your legs off! Whatever will you do?!" I exclaim. "I… Continue reading Child’s play

I'm looking forward to sharing my progress as the year passes, and ticking gifts off my list well… Continue reading Knit all the things!
