With the start of a new school year, you may find yourself thinking about new positive habits and routines for your kids (and yourself!). You want what’s best and healthy for your kids, but sometimes it’s hard to know where to begin. If you’re one of millions of parents packing lunches before you send your loved […]
Spring has sprung and we can finally go outside without being cold! I had almost forgotten, after this winter, what it is like to be warmed by the sun. But, as I sit outside on my deck and soak up the sun… I am remembering how good it actually feels.
My last post about going green mentioned going paperless in the kitchen. There are some simple steps you can take to do this yourself. Our household hasn’t bought paper towels in over 8 months. Saved us a bunch of money, and it really wasn’t that hard to do.
