Taking a Break...

I decided today that I need to take a break from researching/blogging about things like nutrition and natural living for a little while because it's taking too much of my thought time :).  I want to focus more on my family and just being here these next few days/weeks.  I LOVE learning about nutrition, but when I can't put it all into practice 100% of the time, it starts to stress me out... so I'm going to stop focusing on it for a while and making it an idol.  I have been way too focused on it!  I hope that the information that I have given is good for now, and that you can use the recipes and things that I have left for you!  If you look to the right on my blog, under Natural Living Resources, there is a link titled "Recipes" that has a LOT of the basic recipes that we use often. 

I WILL be back to all of this at some point.  I'm definitely not finished blogging about it... it is after all a passion of mine!  I just need a break :). 

One thing that I'm kind of sad about is that, for now, we are having to stop buying raw milk (yes, already!).  I have been having trouble thawing it out... I have tried just about every way possible, and the cream always ends up kind of lumpy.  It still tastes good, but the texture is just not for me.  And, since it's already hard enough to drive an hour and 15 minutes every two weeks, buying it weekly isn't even an option... So, we are back to buying organic whole milk.  It will work for now...
It is tough when I know what's best and can't do it.  So, this is an area that I will have to let go of and know that God will take care of us!  Buying pasteurized milk isn't the end of the world... it's just not ideal to me.  But, oh well!

Courtney, don't obsess about not being able to do all of our research for us : ) We LOVE all of your informative posts, but sometimes, it's ok to focus on your family, especially with little Levi arriving any day now. Kick back, enjoy your family and don't worry about us, we'll still be here when you have the time and energy to research again. Hugs, ~K~

Hey Courtney! Can't wait to see pics of the new baby when he decides to get here! Random question...do you wear foundation/powder and if you do have you found a "safe" brand that you like? Abby P.

Courtney, I just wanted to say that we only buy milk every other week and it keeps just fine without going in the freezer. You might want to try it.

Also, I wanted to tell you about my new blog; it is part of Simple Living Media, which owns Simple Mom, run by Tsh... I think you have read Simple Mom? Anyway it is about natural and green living - it's called Simple Organic. I think you will like it! http://simpleorganic.net if you want to check it out.

Hope you are getting some rest and that soon soon you will get to meet that little guy!
