Last week was filled with more rain.
There’s still a lot I want to explain after my post late in September… as in, how did all of this start, and my gosh! how did it snow ball SO quickly?!? Bi-polar? Post-Partum depression? Alcoholism? Psychiatric wards? But, just as I think I have time to pause, reflect on and explain pieces of that journey, well,

|Miss Greta Margaret turned 1 this Thursday, 10/15! I am so in LOVE with being her mom! She has been one of my brightest rainbows lately 🙂|
|Birthday cake! It was late, she was tired… Carrot cake made from the carrots from our CSA. It was great!|
|Nathan and I recently tried out Jiva Bites, a local business that prepares and delivers 2-3 meals to your doorstep every week. We love it! Each meal is cheaper than the cost of going out to eat, and is completely chopped, measured, and ready for you to prepare. This way, we can grab one of these meals when things are hectic, instead of ordering a pizza or not making much at all (“fend for yourself” night!).
This way, we’re still showing Greta that dinner is something to be made and sat down to enjoy. Plus, it’s all healthy, very high quality, mostly organic and local. It is worth the splurge, definitely! If you decide to give it a try, please tell them you heard about them here. I’d feel really good about sending some business her way!
