If you’ve been keeping up with me here you more than likely know how I really struggle with whether to homeschool or send my kids to public school. Both options have pros and cons.

house plants that do more than look good

air purifying house blog

 

We are gearing to do a few small changes around the house as far as decorating . I’m not sure if it’s nesting or just the want for a change but I’m definitely ready to upgrade our current style to more of a Boho Modern design. One of the first things I will make sure to include in our design will be to finally incorporate some greenery into our home. I usually stray from house plants because of my black thumb but I’ve been told these are pretty indestructible and let’s not forget they purify your home’s air quality.

Days like this I sit in bed with tons of anxiety dreading that long ride to the doctors office. I have such a love/hate relationship with vaccinations. Actually more of an anxiety stricken, sick to my stomach, am I a bad mama type relationship. I pride myself in research and trying my hardest to provide my kids with the safest, purest and non-toxic lifestyle as possible. read more

One of the many benefits of being a member of the blogging community is learning new things through other mamas & parents. You seem to have a direct insight into their family choices and what has or hasn’t worked for them. This applies to medicines, parenting styles, clothing choices, recipes and much more. It’s so fun to learn and try out products based on another mama’s review.  read more
