FARM TO BABY

We are totally loving this new concept. Farm to Baby is a new business idea where local farmers grow food that is to be prepared (in a kitchen, not factory) and delivered to your door, for your baby.  I love this! Check out their website for full details. Unfortunately the service is only available in the New York City area for now but lets keep our fingers crossed that this idea expands nation wide! Doesn’t it feel good knowing your doing something good for your family, local economy AND the environment? Yes!

DIY Easter Eggs!

Easter is almost here and what better way to get into the holiday spirit than by naturally dying eggs with your littles!? We came across this awesome blog post from Christine Chitnis and knew we had to share.  It’s so hard sometimes finding cute, well done, natural / eco ways to do the simplest things.  This DIY easter egg dying project is just perfect!

Here’s what you need:

– hard-boiled white eggs in their shells
– water
– white vinegar
– salt
– beets, ground coffee, red cabbage, ground turmeric
– knife, pots, strainer, bowls (metal, ceramic, or plastic)

Now hop on over to Christine’s site to see HOW TO! 

Food for thought.

Happy Monday, all. Hope the weekend found you some rest and relaxation.  Lately I’ve been trying to pin point one thing a day that i’ve done to make my life healthy and happy.  Over the weekend, my husband and I chose to walk when we normally would have driven and let me tell you, the littlest things like that sure make a big difference. The fresh air, conversation a long the way and chance to just enjoy a commute by foot really did our souls some good.  I’ve started a journal where each night I take just a few minutes to jot these little moments of health and happiness down. It truly is the best way to end the day.
