Mike and I met at a bar back in 2010 outside of Sacramento (yes, very cliche). We were good friends for a few years before we started dating, and realized that opposites can attract! We got engaged in September of 2015 and were married on July 1st, 2016 in Cabo San Lucas. That was seriously one of the best weeks of our lives! We had 80 of our closest friends and family members there to celebrate with us. Talk about feeling loved...
We were married for a year before finding out we were pregnant. Being that I got married at the age of 39, we knew that if we were going to have a baby that we didn't have a lot of time to waste. I was 40 when I found out that we were pregnant and became a first time mom right before my 41st birthday. With the passing of both my parents to cancer (Dad at 48 and Mom at 62), I have made it my mission to live as organically as I can (and I use that word loosely). And now being a mom, I am making sure that my children grow up very differently than what I did and with a lot of thought put into how I go about doing that.
They have now become my reason for doing this. I wanted a place to document how I went about my pregnancies, as well as the choices I am making postpartum and beyond in hopes to help others along the way.
My family and our health is top priority in my books. I am experimenting with cleaners products, whole foods, supplements and so much more. My hope is to share my findings to help you with your journey, whatever that may be.
