A Letter to My Oldest Daughter

It was an afternoon in February, 13 years ago and I had just taken a pregnancy test.  Your Dad and I knew we were ready to be parents, but we didn’t realize just how fast our dreams would become a reality.  As he walked through the door that evening, from work, I remember looking up......

Germs vs. Probiotics

*While we were compensated for this post, all opinions are my own. Germs.  When you’re a parent, they are literally everywhere.  In our home, we are lucky if we can go a full month without one of the kids bringing home some sort of illness.  So where do we turn? How do we stay healthy?......

Easy Vegan Granola Recipe

Easy Vegan Granola Recipe We are constantly looking for yummy, good-for-you snacks.  Our family recently discovered that we all really love granola! I mean, what’s not to love?  Oats, nuts, dried fruits, maple syrup, all baked until it’s toasted and golden brown.  Drooling yet?  While store bought granola is good, there is nothing quite like......

This Nokia Body + Scale Is Off The Charts

I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with scales.  Years ago, there were many times, pre-kids, when I would step on a scale and rejoice.  Now, since I’ve had kids, I’ve wanted to throw our scales across the room.  I’ve returned more than I care to admit because I was convinced that they were broken.  Why......
