Can I be honest with you? Of course I can… let’s face it, if you don’t want my honesty you won’t keep reading! The past three days have been exhausting. Adventure Girl, now three* has been quite ill: Fevers, not eating, not drinking. My usually great eater has cumulatively over these days only eaten a small handful of food. As such, I’ve found myself in the kitchen for 2-3hrs each day trying to create nutritious food to tempt her stomach and heal her body. At the same time, since we’ve just gotten home from a week away, I’ve found the creative energy to consider our food options more closely and try out a few things. I’m exhausted, she’s starting to get better and I’ve made a loaf of bread for my GP… all in a week’s work really!
All of this to say, I’m kick starting this blog with the following aims:
- To remind myself of the adventures we have, the memories we create and the food we eat. In sharing these I hope to
make people enviousencourage people that memories are more important than money, that you don’t have to put life on the back burner once you have kids and highlight some awesome locations in our area
- To inspire myself (and possibly others) to eat well and consider that what we consume has huge implications upon our lives. As a friend recently shared on social media “The food you eat can either be the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison”. For me, and this blog, at the moment this means wholefoods but also looking to understand and learn from other people’s journeys and choices.
- To have a place to vent my rants and give my reflections/opinions – a safety valve if you will
- To have fun and give myself a creative outlet: something others might enjoy taking part in.
Thanks friends who have encouraged me to write again – I hope I don’t bore you to tears xx
*Since I last posted quite a lot has happened in our lives! Bump #2 aka Dash has been born and my husband has also been diagnosed with a wheat allergy, a small change with significant implications.
