Q&A: All Things Sisters

There are 7 kids in my family, 5 girls and 2 boys. My siblings are my best friends on the planet and there is just nothing that compares to the gift of sisterhood. Most of our best friends just so happen to be only children or girls with only brothers that get sucked into our giant sisterhood. Whenever we’d be scrambling to get ready before a party or wedding or as we rifled through each other’s suitcases on trips we’d always say “what do people even do without sisters?!” I often get questions on what our dynamic is like, what it was like growing up with so many girls and about sisters in general so I’m answering your questions today. The questions were GREAT so get ready to read the word “sister” more than you ever have in your life. 

My All Natural Non-Toxic Makeup Routine



Last September I realized I had to make some pretty significant changes in reducing my exposure to toxins in my life to heal my autoimmune disease. While the toxins found in most beauty products are dangerous for everyone, they’re especially harmful for someone like me with Hashimoto’s because the endocrine-disrupting chemicals can quickly cause estrogen dominance with directly affects the thyroid, immune system and adrenals. After reading Dr. Izabella Wentz’s book Hashimoto’s Protocol I made a commitment to completely overhaul my makeup routine. If you’re looking to do an overhaul of your makeup collection or just to replace a few products AND if you want to know the non-natural makeup product I just cant quit, keep reading!

First Trimester Recap || Pregnancy with Hashimoto’s



First trimester-done and dusted. During the long wait for this baby I often though about what I wanted my attitude to be when the time finally came to be pregnant again. I asked the Lord to help me settle firmly into gratitude and “setting my eyes to the hills” rather than complaining. It was much easier said than done but aside from some true down-in-the-ditch moments, I reset quickly into being so thankful for the opportunity to be growing life again. With that being said, this trimester was my absolute hardest ever and I’ve truly never been more glad to kiss a first trimester goodbye!

Vegan, Paleo and Gluten-Free Friendly Thanksgiving Recipes

Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone. It was my first time cooking a full on Thanksgiving meal. I usually still have made turkey and ham and alllll the animals for Thanksgiving dinner even though I’ve made vegan dishes for O. Do you want to know one of the first things I thought of when we all gave up meat in August? Thanksgiving. It popped in my head and made a pit in my stomach and I began scheming pretty much right away. Here are the recipes I used this year including some old favorites and some recipes I took a chance on that were a hit!
