Speak out against the DARK Act - Just Label It!


I have long been a firm believer in whole food, local and organic when possible, and I strongly believe we as consumers deserve to know what is in our food. As such, I am a big proponent of GMO labeling. There is much to be concerned about on that front, and often I feel helpless to do anything. Today I am asking you to help our voices to be heard. If not now, it may soon be too late.
Rep. Mike Pompeo is expected to reintroduce his anti-labeling bill, the DARK Act, (Deny Americans the Right to Know) any day now. The DARK Act threatens both national and state GMO labeling efforts across the country.

The bill would preempt any state labeling laws while making it much harder for the FDA to ever mandate national GMO labeling. TAKE ACTION NOW and tell Congress to reject this dangerous bill: http://justlabelit.org/take-action/take-action-congress/

 @Rep. Peter DeFazio and @Sen. Barbara Boxer were recently joined by @Chef Tom Colicchio to reintroduced their bipartisan legislation, the Genetically Engineered Food Right To Know Act. Unlike @Rep. Pompeo’s DARK Act, this legislation would require that the FDA require national labeling on all GMO whole foods and foods that contain GMO ingredients. Please tell congress to support the Genetically Engineered Food Rigt To Know Act, NOT the DARK Act:http://bit.ly/1vdAzbN

Together we can make a difference!

Little gifts everyday

Has it really been a year since I posted?

*Dusts off the old blog*

As It is January, I have been working on coming up with my word of the year and reflecting, planning, and so on. The past year I have been blogging in my head all along, but I do want to try and actually post again this year :)

I thought this cute snow drawing Sweetpea left for me on our hurried predawn exit was a good place to start. An adorable gift to come home to after a long day.

What are you feeling grateful for today? How have you been? Let's have a nice hot cup of something and catch up... <3

Reflecting, 2013


Tis the season for reflecting and resolving! The past year has been chock full of highs and lows, but as I look back there are so many blessings to count. Overall we are heading into 2014 stronger, more confident and with a full heart. As usual I have so many projects and ideas in my head, one of my goals for the year is to work on being clear with my direction and protective of my time and resources. I want my days to reflect my ideals and to lead by example...as I'm planning for the coming year, my goals fall into the following categories:

Family/Parenting
Home
Health
Business

I would like to share my favorite resources for each in case you too are focused in these areas. 

Hands down my favorite parenting resource is positive parenting solutions. I attended a free webinar about a year ago and knew it was a resource I wanted (and needed...) Mindy offers practical advice on a huge variety of topics in a way that is accessible and immediately applicable to daily life with kids of any age.

In addition to my parenting goals I have a huge dream for our family this year. I'm using Leonie Dawson's create your amazing year workbook. This one planner has sections for both your personal and business goals in one handy workbook. Bright, colorful, artsy and full of inspiration for big bold dreams. For my everyday list loving self I'm also investing in the 100 days of a new year ebook from ListPlanIt. Use code 100dAYS3OFF to get the 100 days planner for $5! Both of these resources are fabulously affordable, and beneficial for both life and business goals.

My biggest goal for our home this year is to finish decluttering and finally feel settled, organized and at peace with our home...no big deal, right?! Yikes! The tool I've been using toward this goal is Emilie Barnes book More Hours in my Day. This book is a fast read full of inspiration and practical suggestions for organizing as well as for creating a warm sustainable home. 

I have a new favorite cleaning product for nearly everything in my home - something I love so much I have to dish about it. Branch Basics is a cleaning product that isn't just non toxic, it's made of food grade materials. It appeals to my home and health goals, and better yet it works wonders! I will write more on this in the future...

Speaking of health, my other favorite resource for improving our health through real food, natural remedies, etc is the Village Green Network. This is a great resource for blogs, ebook bundles, pod casts and more. 

What are your goals for the year? What tools are you planning to use? I would love to hear what you are up to!
