Finally Going To Get Some Answers… Maybe?

Hello, everyone. So with Coronavirus happening, our initial steps to add to our little family were postponed until now. Since we’ve last posted, I’ve had an MRI and we found out I have a minor case of Schizencephaly. Schizencephaly is a developmental birth defect that is characterized by abnormal slits or clefts in the cerebral…

An Update To Starting A Family

So a couple weeks ago I had a brain MRI because the last time I had one I was 20 months old. Getting a diagnosis so early in life means that your parents obviously know more about the details of your diagnosis until you decide you want to know for yourself. So now, at 30,…

Organizing A Small Kitchen

We moved into a rental house a few weeks ago and the house is quite small and everything is “efficiently spaced”. With little counter space, we had to get creative about storage for small kitchen appliances like the blender, stand mixer, food processor and others.

The Lakes Are Moving!

It’s been a hot minute since we posted on here. The last year hasn’t been the easiest, for multiple reasons. One of them being that we are living with my in-laws and it’s hard to feel like newlyweds, living our first year of marriage together, when there’s no privacy and each of us like doing…

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Every so often, all you need is to just get out of the house. Winter is a rough season for me, my mental health, and my body. Walks get shorter, chances of falling increase, chronic pain gets worse, and I stay inside more than I already do which takes a toll on my mental health….

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

October is one of my favorite times of the year. Leaves change, the air gets crisp, warm drinks are craved, and we get to carve pumpkins. I love watching Hocus Pocus and drinking hot chocolate. But, I confess, I usually have a salty tooth over a sweet tooth. Compared to my wife who basically has…

All Natural Products

Now, if you have looked through our own apothecary site, you know that I love creating and using all natural products. I fully believe that the earth provides us with mostly everything we need. However, our apothecary only focuses on skin care, bath salts and candles. So I’m always looking for all natural cleaning products…
