Roasted Dandelion Root Tea

Do you like to drink tea?  I love it!  There’s nothing more cozy as having a cup of hot tea on a cold winter day.  We are getting a winter blizzard here in Michigan so I’ve already had two big cups of tea today.  I had one cup cold to start my day and another hot, a little bit ago, to warm me up.

As a Stay at Home (and now Homeschooling) Mom, I Needed More

As moms, we have a lot on our plates and often forget about ourselves. Before I got married and had children, I was a busy and successful career woman. Once we got married, I still worked and then when I got pregnant with our daughter, I was put on bed rest at 7 1/2 months. My husband and I were in agreement that once we had kids, I would stay at home with them.

PiperWai Deodorant

If you’ve been following our journey at all, you know that natural deodorant has been a trial and error for me for over 6 years.  It has been quite the challenge to find one that works for me.  I have tried so many and none of them truly worked all day for me.  I know the dangers of using deodorants with aluminum in them so I refused to go back to using them again but I needed to find something that would keep me fresh smelling all day.  Smelling funky is definitely not my thing!

Homemade Deodorant

If you have followed my blog for the past few years, you know how I feel about deodorant with aluminum. I have been on the search for the perfect natural deodorant for a few years now.  With all of them that I have tried, you would think something would work, right?  A few have come very close to meeting my needs but honestly, by the end of the day, I still had that “funk” smell.  Until now…

Time for Change

Last weekend, we had a potential new babysitter over to meet our kids and us.  She was very nice and asked a lot of great questions about the kids.  She asked us if they have any food allergies (no, but they do have food intolerances to gluten and dairy which many people have but don’t realize.  My intolerances were misdiagnosed as Irritable Bowel Syndrome).  She was really curious about our holistic lifestyle and asked a lot of questions about what we eat, where we shop for our food, about our essential oils and diffuser and about our Tyent water ionizer.
