SPRING FAMILY FUN + THE KEY TO STICKING TO HEALTH

Here is your May love note and I hope you are feeling amazing!

It has been another fun couple of weeks around here!

We have walls! The kids are so excited each day to see what is going on with our Farm House Reno (you can follow along on IG under the RENO highlight).

We were cheering on our biggest girl who did such a great job at her dance recital. Her amazing studio puts on the most incredible show!

dusting off the blog || bump life update + fudgey protein brownies for the win

You guys! 

Today felt like the right time to dust off the old blog.

I love this space and I love sharing all things health with you, but life has been pulling me in some other directions (in a wonderful way).

I appreciate you following along with where I have been hanging – mostly on Instagram + Facebook. So make sure to pop over there if you haven’t. It’s quick and dirty and allows me to share quick snaps as life happens, yummy meals, everyday life, natural solutions for you and your family and a whole lot more!

Birthday babbles + wishes for another year of awesome

Today I turn a year older. Hopefully a year wiser, and a year more awesome. Or at least that is what I’m hoping ;)

I have always loved birthdays and today is no different. I am welcoming my 32nd year with open arms, a lot of excitement and maybe because I’m getting older….a whole lot of reflection. Reflection on the year that has been and the year that I am hoping will hold a whole lot of magic.

creating space + a mama mantra

I'm not 100% convinced that there is such a thing as finding the perfect life balance. As a mama, wife and entrepreneur there are those days that my juggling act is off. 

Like yesterday. Oh boy, yesterday....

Each day I am trying to be better. Better at prioritizing what needs my attention and what I pour my heart and soul into.

My focus is my family and sometimes I need the gentle reminder that everything else can {and sometimes needs to} wait. I'm sure this has and always will be a challenge reserved for all the incredible mama's out there until the end of time.

Ohhhh yes. The sickies have invaded our home again this year... a couple of times. 

Despite all my best efforts (that we will chat about below) germs from Sloane's pre-school are keeping me busy. 

Over the last few years I have shared some of my go-to natural remedies for doing your best to prevent getting sick but also ways to support the body as it gets better.

I hope with all of my heart that you had a magical holiday season.

I’m out of my PJ’s {lulu’s count right….} which makes today feel a bit more normal.  Sloane is back at school and after a much deserved break I am happily back to work. Yeah!

I have made some time to sit down and map out some goals for 2016. Here is just a little sample...

DIY holiday body scrub for the win

It is feeling more and more like Christmas over here in Berlin .

And now just planning the couple of few weeks now that Sloane is officially on her school break. The goal is excitement with a side of gratitude and slow living for our Christmas and New Years celebrations shared with our hockey family over here.

This past week I put together some little gifts for Sloane’s teachers. A little pamper pack for her amazing teachers who truly deserve their holiday break. Perhaps I should have included some wine …

Life is flying by at a record speed right now.

But HI! I truly have missed you and now that we are relocated back in Germany, I am back online! Yeah!

Summer feels as though it is officially gone and we are enjoying the beginnings of fall.

Proof is in the goofy smile.

Summer recipe inspiration from my CSA box+ life update

This summer I am supporting another Community Shared Agriculture Program from a long time family friend who lives just around the corner from me. Julia McIntosh runs Grandma's Garden and Gratitude Foods as both a Farmer and Culinary Nutritionist. It's awesome. Her weekly bounty of produce has been the perfect addition for our family, I love the convenience of the delivery and knowing that I am supporting local is always the best.  

This past weekend I was feeling like I needed some soul food - so here is a peek at my Sunday Scramble.

Practice Safe Sun

Environmental Working Group recently released their 2015 guide to safe sunscreen and guess what? Of the 1700 products they tested 80% got a big F based on the nasty ingredients they contained.

I know a lot of health conscious mamas are looking for green sunscreen options for their kids, which is amazing. Consumer demand in the last several years has  resulted in greener and cleaner options. 

Check out some safe alternatives for you and your family here...

friday randoms: a few of my favourite things

I hope you are able to carve in a little me time this weekend. My self-care will come in the form of a hot yoga class tomorrow AM with one of my besties. I had my first class back in {gasp....} almost 2 years last weekend, and truthfully I felt amazing. I took it easy and could not believe how much taller and less achy {my babes are getting heavy...} my body felt!
