What a thrilling journey, Camille! Enjoy it when you can. Also remember: one path is not right for all people. Make sure that what you choose is a match for you and your kids. Hugs.
Yes! It works beautifully.

I originally wrote this series of posts in 2012 and 2013 as a way to gently help parents move toward more peaceful parenting and more peaceful lives. The feedback I received was incredible. They were stories of lives transformed. Because... Continue reading

It isn't always easy to know what change you need. But if you listen you will discover what will help. Blessings, mama.
I hope things fall into place soon, Brynn. Hugs.
I appreciate the encouragement!
Kind words. Thanks Casey.
Brett, the almond flour is in there just for a little softer texture. You could also use a smaller amount of coconut if the garbanzo doesnt do the trick (though I think it will, beautifully!).

Repeat after me: My life is beautiful. My world is magic. I am blessed. Despite the messes, the rough nights, the heartache. Desipte everything that hasn't turned out quite the way you expected. Sometimes life's beauty is more about the... Continue reading

Hi Laura, They are goldenrod, a native perennial prairie plant. They are sometimes blamed for ragweed allergies because they are so vibrant and bloom at the same time. We harvest these to dye some yellow wool!

I could use a clean living room now and then, so let's try that running at each other thing soon. :-)

These September days call us again and again. Away from our work - our canning and cleaning and doing - and down to the creek, up to the woods. And we go. Again and again. We laugh, we talk, we... Continue reading

Hi Tameka, White Willow and Meadowsweet we were seeking for my headaches - they are the source of aspirin in it's pure, natural form. As for the others, blue vervain (tincture or tea of leaf and flowers) is calming; the white flowers above are boneset (historically used for just what it's name says, but it has other medicinal uses), and the flower lupine is touching is evening primrose. The others are wild sunflowers and random prairie grasses, flowers, and 'weeds'. Hope that helps!

We went down to the creek looking for meadowsweet and white willow. There were tinctures to make for our medicine chest. We found neither, yet somehow much more than we were seeking. We found the comfort of our feet moving... Continue reading

I spent part of yesterday sorting through a huge tote of photos I've been moving from house to house for more than a decade. Yesterday seemed apropos, being Sage's 12th birthday. What better time to travel back through these years... Continue reading

We've never done the "number-of-days-until-the-kids-go-back-to-school" countdown. We aren't buying school clothes, new book bags, or notebooks. And we won't be filling backpacks, packing lunches, or hustling kids to the bus stop - not today, not tomorrow, perhaps not ever. But... Continue reading

Hey Tori, For us we feel crappy when it slips to 80 or 70%. And then we buck up again. Shortly after this post Lupines eczema came back because eggs became a more frequent affair. We corrected, but we didnt overcorrect. Its a dance, for certain. Hope you are well. x

Hi Karla, Thanks for your comment! I wrote a post a while ago about no more rules in the kitchen (link below). For me its been too easy to get caught up in labels and rules and ideas of good and bad foods and Ive found those are more harmful to my health that a treat now and then. Crackers are easy to make but they do take time, so we dont make a habit of them. Once in a while I think they are a-ok - whatever the base.
