A Water Birth Story

0 Comment
We’re so thankful to have our first guest post submitted by the mother of a brand new baby girl. We all love to hear birth stories because each one is so different and so unique in its own special way.

2 Comments
If homeschooling is the route you’ve chosen to take with your children, then trying to think of when to actually start is somewhat of a grey area.

We got to eat… so, we got to cook.  Gone are the days of a can of this and a jar of that. I feel at times I am cooking over an open flame just like my forefathers (or really, foremothers) did once off the Mayflower. Some days dinner preparation can be daunting.  But over […]

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Probably the best news about these cinnamon rolls (other than the fact that they’re delicious) is that the dough only has to rise once. I love to make bread products but sometimes I opt out of it because I just don’t feel like waiting for all the dough to rise over and over again. I had […]

Why is it that I seem to always plan the main dish but forget to plan a side? So, there I am, time and time again, staring at the options.  And the options always include carrots.  Cause they are cheap and never rot.  And they always seem to be sitting in the crisper waiting for […]
