A few pics of my brother’s wedding!

Last weekend was a special weekend for me. My little brother Michael, who is 25, married a beautiful woman named Corrie! The wedding took place in my parent’s backyard in Virginia- they have 5 acres and a beautiful open grassy area. My sister also got married in their backyard four years ago. She had chandeliers hanging in trees and the neighbor’s glorious horses also paid a visit to the wedding. My brother’s wedding was this past weekend and he and his wife Corrie had a gorgeous event themselves. There were beautiful sheers hanging from the trees (see the picture below)…

Have you heard about using biotin for hair & nails?

So, like most women, I really love the idea of healthy, shiny, thick happy hair. But how do you get it when you barely even have time to take a shower each day? I dearly miss doing my hair and getting ready for 1.5 hours ever day. (How did I ever, EVER have that much time when I was single?!) Anyway, I’ve been doing some reading about vitamin B7, biotin. It’s essential for your metabolism, and also for healthy skin, nails and hair. Typically, we get all the biotin we need from food sources, but if you feel your skin…

Thinking about you tonight- word of encouragement

Hey there, How’s it going? As I write this, my kids won’t leave me alone. I’m writing on the coffee table in my living room, and my 6 year old son just brought me his beloved brown bear and set it down on my arm. It’s still balancing on my left forearm. My 5 year old daughter just brought me a piece of her organic sprouted bagel with organic cream cheese and held it two inches from my mouth, her love offering of the night. My 8 year old is upstairs fussing over his homework, and we’ve just returned from a…

Store Your Leftovers in Glass, Not Plastic

After dinner tonight, will you throw your leftovers in toxic storage containers? If so, think again, because the toxic chemicals in plastic have been proven to damage our cells when they are ingested, causing a wide variety of problems such as infertility, hormonal disruption, cancer, and even obesity. A much safer solution is to use GLASS, which is easy to use and completely safe! I use a set that I got from Amazon called Snapware Glasslock and it comes in a variety of sizes, shapes, and stores excellently in the fridge and freezer. See it here on Amazon! (This set is…
