What You Wish For

There are times in my house–quiet times–when you wouldn’t know we had any pets at all…unless you looked around, that is. Dogs seem to be dozing all over the place (often with our lone cat somewhere in their midst). Don’t even get me started on the other evidence: fur. At other times, even if you […]

Come on, admit it.  If you’re a parent, aunt/uncle, babysitter, etc., you’ve been there.  Haven’t you?  I sure have. Here are some of […]

Why I Began My Journey to the Natural Kind of Life

Why I Began My Journey to the Natural Kind of Life

This path first presented itself to me when my children were very young. I’d always loved the natural world and my favorite place to be was outdoors in the fresh air. Still, I thought little about our home’s indoor environment. That all changed the first time I read a list of the toxins people were […]
