Real Life

As a family of soon to be 4 + a few fur babies, we have a lot of big plans for the future! Currently living in an apartment consisting of 1,150 sqft with 2 bedrooms (one of which is a playroom/office), 2 adults, 2 dogs, 1 cat, a toddler, a soon to be newborn and enough toys to fill a toy store, you’d be surprised to hear we are planning on growing our family while downsizing our home in a couple of years! For now, those plans will remain a secret, though. 😉 We aren’t your typical, conventional, “normal” family. Baking and cooking with things like organic coconut sugar, almond flour and bone broth. Eating and drinking probiotics and other live cultures. Making homemade kombucha. Growing our own mini garden on the patio. Co-sleeping, extended breastfeeding, baby-wearing toddlers (and babies, of course) and choosing to not have babysitters on the regular. Although we aren’t exactly where we want to be, while still eating a plethora of sugar items (we can’t leave Fresh Thyme without some gummy bears!) and still using “bad for you” shampoos and conditioners (nothing makes my hair quite as soft as those toxic chemicals! ;)), we are striving every day to reach a healthier lifestyle!

Living each day not concerned about what others have to say about my choice of breastfeeding my children in public, or our choice as a family about continuing to co-sleep with our children, we are dedicated to raising our kids in a way where they won’t be ashamed or concerned to be themselves, whoever that may be!

Enjoy our blog where we will post about our apartment garden, apartment life with young children and many furry friends, homemade kombucha and bone broth, “healthier” alternatives to some of your favorite treats (seriously, some of the best peanut butter cookies I’ve ever had!), my soon-to-be very first birth center experience, lots of traveling (with the kids, of course), some of our favorite dinner recipes and so much more!
