Hi there! This is Kristy...
I literally stumbled upon natural living when I became a mother in 2003.
The health needs (and challenges) of our growing family pushed me to become knowledgeable in the fields of nutrition, health, and holistic living so that I could responsibly care for our kids.
As I began to learn and grow as a natural mama, I discovered a new found interest... as well as a passion to share what I was learning with other moms. In 2007, I launched my first blog!
Today I'm a mom with five growing kids, and I'm still as passionate as ever about health and natural living. And I still love sharing what I'm learning with others!
Please keep in mind as you read: I'm not a doctor or health practitioner. I'm a woman with a desire to learn, and implement what I'm learning. (View my disclaimer here.)
I hope you'll enjoy browsing this collection of posts, articles and recommended resources for herbs, health and nutrition.
I love hearing from you, so please feel free to comment or contact me with your input, questions and comments!
