Shedding – My Messy Beautiful

I walked by our oldest son’s room one day to see this sign carefully placed on the floor in his door way and him hard at work building on his floor inside. I giggled that he had set up a construction sign for his room, but I am starting to think we need one just […]

A Year and a Half

It’s been a little more than a year and a half since my last post. Don’t worry, life, growth, change, love, hope, and grace have all continued around here in the last 20 months or so. Some of you who know me well know that not long after my last post my mom died after […]

Home Brew: Kombucha!

Here’s the thing: I hate tea. I have always said it tastes like leaves in water. Of course, being a crunchy mama, that just can’t be right? I’m supposed to LIKE tea. I didn’t even consider trying tea straight up until my midwife recommended a blend of peppermint and pregnancy tea to help with indigestion […]

Hand Knit Love: The Baby’s Blanket

I finished knitting a blanket for the bambino a while back. I absolutely adore Amish quilts, and I had this blanket planned in my head before I was even pregnant with the little guy. I kept wondering if I could knit the broken bars pattern without seaming, and I kept thinking that it just had […]

A few moments

I sat down to peruse photos and write a post tonight to discover that nothing I’ve thought about photographing for the blog has actually been photographed. I guess I’ve been a little bit busy lately; too busy, in fact, to even bother putting the memory card back in the camera. Oops. So, all I’ve got […]

Baked Masa Bowls

I set out to make tamales one day last week, but a trip to a local grocery where I’d seen corn husks before left me empty handed. Short on time and with a toddler in tow, I decided not to drive to a farther store just to get husks, but dinner still had to be […]

Out the Back Door

Posted by on Sep 4, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Most days there are plentiful learning opportunities in anyone’s backyard. but for the last few weeks our boys have gotten a great education in construction while peering through the back fence. We’ve learned about new equipment and happily watched while the city replaced the road that ends at our back yard. There was actually so […]

A New Kind of First Day!

Posted by on Sep 1, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments

We ushered in a new era here in our home this week. I had plans to write about it all summer long, but before I could get the words out, it was time for us to start. Yep, we started school this past Monday, and our families brand of school this year is a rare […]

The Edible Ice Pop Stick

Posted by on Aug 14, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Honestly, this was not *completely* my idea. We popped some ice pops into the freezer one afternoon, and one of the boys announces that we should use sticks you can eat. An idea flashes through my mind instantly, but I don’t bother to share it, saving it instead as a surprise for them. I immediately […]

Freeing ourselves…

Posted by on Aug 7, 2012 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I updated this post to fix a few important errors on August 7, 2012. Please not that the “coconut butter” listed in the cashew butter coconut sorbet was changed to coconut milk, and the corn breading recipe changed from 1 cup to a 1/2 cup of water. I’m really hoping this didn’t cause a problem […]
