Where did the past five months go?!

Last time I checked he was five weeks old, wouldn’t stop crying, and I was a walking zombie. Man…how time flies!

This past month was our best month yet with Grayson! I feel like I’m going to say that every month from now on so be prepared. But really!

I started to and had really good intentions (made a bunch of purees to freeze) but then I got rather lazy and started buying the little organic squeeze pouches from the supermarket. I think I’ll do a combination of homemade and the pouches because they are so easy and Grayson seems to love them! Especially the pears and sweet potatoes.

Fair Trade Month Giveaway

by jenna on October 20, 2014



I am so, so, so excited about this Monday morning giveaway! I seriously think it’s one of the best giveaways I’ve ever done. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this, friends.


I am partnering with my friends at Fair Trade to giveaway an AMAZING box of Fair Trade clothing to one lucky reader! Yes, you heard that right — today you win clothes! Super cute clothes, at that. When my friend Lauren contacted me about this, I had no idea that certain clothing brands had recently started carrying Fair Trade items. Like, awesome brands such as Prana and Patagonia. Brands that I already wear and adore. You guys know how passionate I am about ethical companies promoting job creation to help diminish poverty….and I was soooooo happy to see that these brands were partnering with such an amazing organization like Fair Trade USA to do so!

The BEST part though is that for each piece, they give you information on the factory it was produced in and guarantee fair labor. […]
