I am just so thankful for my amazing family! I have THE bestest husband in the whole world! I'm so happy to be HIS wife! Our daughter is simply the sweet little lady! She is such a joy! I love to hear her randomly giggle! Right now she is in a really fun stage where she loves to play with us and gabber! She is now saying 'Da Da', 'Ma Ma', and sometimes 'Hi'! She used to call me 'Ba Ba'... I think it was because the Mmm sound was hard for her to get so she replaced it with B! : ) Now if she's crying sometimes she'll say 'Mama ma ma Ba Ba ba ba'. It's kind of cute.

Lately I've been feeling like I've been hibernating... just waiting for Spring to come. I miss things like walks in the sun, gardening and many other great outdoor activities! I've been thinking of all the great outdoor things that I really hope to do one day! Like vegetable gardening, canning, herb gardening, raising our own fruit, raising bees, raising animals, and so much more! I want to be self-sufficient!
Speaking of self-sufficiency...
This is an amazing book! I've been making a lot of my own natural cleaners with this book! It's so much fun to clean with something that you made yourself! And that you feel good about breathing in the fumes! I'm really not a big one on breathing in something that could do some harm... a lot of cleaners tell you to be cautious breathing or not use at all while pregnant, so why would I want to breath them while not pregnant? Plus a lot of the cleaners are really unsafe to have around while there are small children in the house. Even tho you still don't want your children to play with or drink the homemade cleaners, it's not going to necessarily burn their insides if they accidently do.
Have you read this book? Or any other good self-sufficiency book? I would love to hear from you!

On Day one the Mary Challenge is to write a mission statement as to why you want a clean home! Here is mine! : )
Reasons why I want a clean home
~ because I want my husband to feel like a king in his castle
~ because it’s healthier
~ because you can find things easier
~ because I want to be productive
~ so that I can have company come over and not be scrounging around the day of trying to get things presentable before they get here.
