Almost a year!


It is hard to believe that it has been almost a year since I have updated Natural and Nourished Family. A lot has happened in the past year which has kept my attention away from blogging and on life in real time.   Our family has grown. We grew from a family of 6 to […]

Pretty Party Food Makes My Girl Happy

Such is Life…


So it may seem that I have forgotten that I have a blog, or at the very least that I only remember it intermittently.  Not so.  I think about it often and miss spending loads of time on it.  But life is happening faster these days and by day’s end I find myself falling asleep […]

Homemade Lip Balm

This was one of the first homemade body products that we made and it was a huge success.  This is a pure and natural lip balm and goes on silky smooth and makes your lips feel so soft and moisturized.  One recipe made 10 tubes of lip balm!  Making your own lip balm saves a […]

Saturday Links I Love 11/5/11


Ahh…Saturday.  What a relief to be here after a busy week.  On this lovely Saturday, my wonderful husband is giving me the gift of some time alone while he and our children go out on the town for the day.  As much as I love my role as a stay-at-home-homeschooling mama and am thankful that […]
