…harvesting and drying herbs (rose petals, clover, plantain, violets)

…baking our treats rather than buying them

…trying out a new organic grocery service (with delivery!)

    Hi there, mama! I found your blog over at Natalie Hanson’s and I’m so glad I clicked over your name =) I think this blog is an amazing place to visit! It’s so calm and peaceful and I love your adventures! I’ve mentioned you in my blog (which is brand new and I’m almost positive no one has ever visited) so, I hope that’s not TOO weird! I can remove it if you want me to! Congratulations on your beautiful family and choices! – Shelly
