Welcome to my new site! This is an idea that has been building up inside me for a while now. This blog was inspired on my journey into motherhood and exploded from there. While I was pregnant I was in shock at all the processed foods I was told not to eat or eat in strict moderation (I just didn't eat them) and it made me wonder if I should ever really be eating them. I started trying to slowly but surely live life simpler, more like my grandparents did. To say it has changed my life is an understatement. It has changed how I see myself, my relationships with others, and especially my relationship with food. I hope this blog can serve as a connecting point to others looking to live their lives simpler and still realistically. It will include blogs on canning, preserving, sewing, gardening, and being a woman in our society. It will be dedicated to living a healthier life the way grandma did in a modern world!
