March is the perfect month for going green isn't it?!  St. Patrick's Day, spring is in the air, it's my birthday... ok so that last one is not quite relevant - but everything else this month is bursting with goodness and greenness!  Naturally, it's the perfect time for me to talk about one of my newer passions that I haven't yet shared with all of you.  I've kind of turned into an Environmentalist...

Now, at first glance, you may say to yourself "I knew it.  First veganism and now this..." But actually this started long before my veganism. Actually my family would probably tell you I have been a closet Environmentalist for a really long time.  When I was a kid I actually forced my brother to hold a funeral for an ant he killed without provocation... so... yeah.  But two years ago I had a bit of a catalyst that has really pushed me to come clean with own my greenie tendencies.  I took an Environmental Science class.

I'll be honest.  I didn't really want to, but I...

Back when I used to be interested in politics the phrase "controlling the conversation" was often on my tongue and ringing in my ears.  After all, you can't let the enemy (As if our neighbors and fellow countrymen were our enemies!) control the conversation.  If you let them use their terminology and their vocabulary they are in control and have an edge in the debate.

It's true.  And today I'm using the concept in a much more beneficial way.  Our adopted son was recently diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD).  This means that a close relationship with his caregivers is terrifying and he deeply struggles to have a healthy, meaningful relationship with anyone.

Whenever he and I have a moment of connection, or he enjoys a conversation with another adult, it is always followed by a severe backlash of rage.  Grief, anger and fear pour out of his little body in ways that no one should ever have to experience - let alone a small child.  Some days I feel like we are ma...

Hi Everyone!  I'm finished with my class and we finally seem to be getting into a school rhythm that I feel really good about, so Iakabos and I are now moving into taking more time for our own projects and creative outlets.  I'm so excited to share with you all of the things I am wanting to keep going on and the new things I want to start!

First of all, I need to finally get the blog in order.  I'm going to take some dedicated time at least once or twice a week to move over my old blog posts from my previous blog and also to finish our comprehensive resources page.  The resources page is a big part of why I started this blog, so I need to prioritize it.

Second, I want to start putting out more blog content.  Obviously that's a big part of it too!  I miss blogging about adoption and home school and living simply and nurturing the faith and all the crunchy alternative things I'm into.  So my second priority is to get new blog content out there and to reestablish our community,...
