    Who Are the Experts in Parenting/Mothering?

    I was participating in a conversation on Facebook this morning where a friend asked what questions would you ask of a parenting/mothering "expert". The word "expert" brought up some strong emotions in some of the commenters, even though I don't think that was the focus of the original … Read More...

    Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes

    I went searching for a chocolate cupcake recipe that uses coconut flour today in the effort to find something with some semblance of nutrition that my child will actually eat (and something I can have that's sweet and doesn't contain wheat). I found a recipe for gluten free cupcakes at Elana's … Read More...

Wanting Change AND Being Happy Where You Are

Woman meditating in the forest

I think this concept would have to be my greatest challenge – Wanting change AND being happy where I am. I can apply it to varying degrees of success in different areas of my life. And as it would turn out, the area I want change the most is the one that seems to elude…

Do you ever really “get over it”?

pink chrysanthemum

Next month, my little girl would be reaching the age of 10 if she were still here. For the last month (and for the next few) I’ve been thinking of the other children in my first mothers group who are all turning 10 this year. I haven’t seen any of them for at least the…

Homeschooling

piggy bank savings

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be totally in control of your finances? Where the money you earned (whatever amount that may be), was enough to keep you on a path toward your definition of financial freedom? I have to be honest – I’ve been struggling with my finances for years.…

Organic Chocolate Mini Cupcakes

Organic Mini Chocolate Cupcakes

Last week was my little boy’s second birthday and the first time I’ve made cupcakes for him. It goes without saying that he absolutely loved them and couldn’t get enough of them and I felt a little bad because in the rush of preparing for visitors and a birthday party, I used a packet mix.…
