Every once in a while I have a personal epiphany.
In April 2010 I registered a blog with WordPress, and in October 2010 I finally summoned up enough courage to actually post something on that blog.
I felt a pull toward a different approach to family life.
In 2008, after the birth of my second (and last) child, as a family, we suffered a devastating and game-changing loss. That combined with a new-birth, shook my world and turned on its head and what I felt was important. Life was never the same again.

Apprehensive and shy, the blog began as a way of documenting my recipes, for my use, and to share with others.
Quickly it became so much more. This blog is my virtual home. It’s a safe place (with relative anonymity) where I am allowed to explore a simpler way of living and to hang out with like-minded people.
What can you expect to find here?
Well, there is a lot of talk about food and occasionally ideas and tips on reducing food waste. But it’s also a blog about a journey toward a simpler family life, which includes conscious spending, mindfulness and a good old dose of decluttering with a hint of minimalism.
