I believe in mother nature,, I know that natural is best,, and wish more people felt that way! We recycle, reduce and reuse!!! We recycle, compost, we use cloth napkins/cleaning rags. It's all about habit folks,, its not a hassle once you do it for awhile,, its about change:)
I have been married for 11 yrs to my best friend and soul mate, he is my teacher and my forever partner, we have struggled with infertility and have now decided against putting my body through any more trauma and to foster to adopt, whatever child the Lord choses to put in our hands will be ours no matter if it came from us or not. we live in a modest house in a country setting in Maine, we live the simple life and try to be as natural as possible in a crazy world so fixated on the here and now, the fast food and the fast life, to me that equals fast death. I plan on living long and healthy. everyday is a new lesson
