There are times in this natural living journey where I just want to throw in the towel. Literally.
And of course, only to add fuel to the fire, I was drying my hair one day while seriously thinking about not washing my hair altogether.
(Wow, I’m really digging a hole here, aren’t I?!)
Now hear me out – I didn’t REALLY want to not wash my hair, but I was pretty darn frustrated with deciphering the yada-yada-free-this and blah-blah-free-that labels on shampoo and conditioner bottles that I was practically ready to give up and cry uncle.
Being neck-deep in researching organic foods on top of homeschooling, making meal plans, planning a three week family vacation and running a business… Couldn’t someone just cut me some slack and just tell me what shampoos were good and which were bad?
For the love of a busy work-at-home mom with kids who only wants to wash her hair without unnecessary chemicals, why in the world did there have to be so many options with pretty labels crying “Ooh, pick me! Pick me!” at the store?!
Last year was my first year gardening and with it came LOTS of lessons learned.
I learned about the plants. About water. About food. That if you’re not careful, creating a garden isn’t friendly to your grocery budget!
I had the honor of sharing 7 things every first time gardener should know over at The Prairie Homestead, and with a new season rapidly approaching, I encourage you all to read the insightful tips I learned the hard way (#1 and #2) and the hard-er way (#4 and #5).
Hopefully, this coming season yields more lessons to improve my gardening and more food!
