Growing together

Lately, I've been thinking a lot about how they say your child picks you. When I look at myself now I feel like I have grown by leaps and bounds since I've had my child. I look at my life prior to baby and though it was much easier, it certainly wasn't as "full."

In having my child, I've had to do a lot of self reflecting in order to be a better person for her. And sometimes, I really do wonder, "Who is the teacher here?" My child...she just has so much love for me. And on days when I'm not feeling like she's doing what I'd like her to be doing. She responds with a big hug. She always has a hug for me and that just feels so nice. I really feel blessed.

I wonder if she picked her father too because he is really good for me too. I see that in so many great couples. They just work!

Eve & Adam Build a House

I feel so blessed for my child's teacher and for Waldorf Education. I am a BIG, BIG advocate of Waldorf Education because it just resonates with me. Every time I am in the classroom or just see how the children interact with one another, my heart is warmed because this is a living, breathing, thoughtful education that peels back the layers of our children's divine gift to the world. As opposed to regular education that just tries to fill a vessel called the brain. Our children come into this world with their own unique gifts. Just as each one of us has a gift within us. We just have to slow down, quiet the outside world and get to know our inner selves.

Recipes...

I've been making a bunch of yummy stuff lately so I thought I'd share.

These almond cookies are delicious. I usually use the pulp that comes out of making almond milk. So, usually that comes to about a 1.5 cups of almond pulp and then I add 1 cup of whole wheat flour. I also used gluten free flour once and it turned out yummy! No dry and crumbly like the usual gluten free.

The future of style is in the past


Yeah! That's me, wearing a slip! Anyone watch Feud?? The story of Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. It was a good series but what I loved most about it, was the fashion. I loved that Joan Crawford always wore a slip under her dresses. Well, yea, that makes sense. Wear the slip and you won't have to wash your dresses so often. Plus, I happen to feel that slips are so sexy! I'd like to ramp up my slip selections...now if I can just find some that are sustainably made.

Please don't grow up

My friend was over the other day. She has a 12 year-old. She shared how her daughter has gotten her period...and there's a boy in her class that she likes and he likes her. And this summer, his mom asked for their address and the boy sent her daughter a note and a bracelet!

Foodies

The babes announced a few weeks ago that she's vegetarian. And since then has really not eaten any meat...except for once when a friend put sausage in a dish. We are trying to be more conscious about our eating, for sure. But again, I'm not labeling ourselves. Since this decision, we hadn't seen one of our really good friends whom we often get together with to have dinner. Last night was the first night she and I were getting together and then a thought occurred to me, "Well, now how are we going to get together to eat?"

Pasta

The other day I got a hankering for pea pasta. Yea, pea pasta. Weird, right? Maybe, but I stumbled upon this delicious recipe from Cookie and Kate and not only was it yummy, it was eye-opening! How? Well, I have always tried to make simple pasta dishes, like pasta with maybe roasted tomatoes and some grated cheese...or some other plain noodle with a veggie or two and getting the pasta not to stick has always been confounding!
