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.

I believe that cultivating gratitude can transform not only how we view our (beautiful yet deeply imperfect) lives, but transforms our lives themselves. Each week I will share with you seven things that I am thankful for. I'd love to... Continue reading

When was the last time you didn't stop to worry about "practical", "economical", or "realistic"? When was the last time you allowed yourself to believe in a dream you have kept wrapped in your soul for so long? When was... Continue reading

Several years ago I happened upon the most captivating artwork at a show I was attending in Minneapolis. My soap booth was set up close to Lucky Nielsen's display and I kept wandering away from my own stand to get... Continue reading

We woke on Tuesday suddenly ready to be home. No debate, no hesitation, no disappointment. Just ready. We all felt the farm calling us back. So we hastily packed our things, cleaned the cabin, and set out for home just... Continue reading

Ssssh... don't talk about autumn quite yet. Summer is still in full-swing. It's only August. There are hikes to be had and treasures to be found. Patterns to write and dolls to be create. Berries to forage and adventures to... Continue reading

I think the most enthusiastic feedback I got on my recent kitchen remodel was about my snazzy Nikki McClure switch plates. I cranked them out in an evening and they were so quick, so simple, and so darn satisfying. My... Continue reading

Confession: I have barely canned anything yet this summer. I know. Weird. But I got really carried away with the canning last year - mostly jams and pickles of all sorts ~ to the point where we're still well stocked,... Continue reading

What are the requirements where you live, Audrey? We're blessed to live in Wisconsin where we don't need to file credits. I wonder how you could work within the system where you live and yet reach for what your heart desires. I know there is a balance to be found - though it might take a hefty dose of creativity to make it come together.

That's the first step. The hardest. You've got it in you.

If you could put aside fear, and worry, and everyone else's idea of who you should be what would you become? If you could set down "should" and "can't" and "too late" and pick up hope and dreams and possibility,... Continue reading

(Because four broody hens in one box is always better than one.) It's been ages since I've shared a "cultivating gratitude" post and I realize that I miss it - and need it - so much right now. So here... Continue reading

Of course you can share. ~ "Rachel Wolf, Clean. www.lusaorganics.typepad.com" seems adequate. :-)
Lovely. Thanks!
