I'm a first grade teacher, turned stay-at-home mom. I have three little boys (husband included) that keep me on my toes. Spare time is a scarce commodity around here. But if I manage it, you'll probably find me curled up with a good book, watching a movie with the hubby, or on the computer researching simple natural alternatives to pricey consumer products, trying them out, and having an abnormal amount of fun blogging about it.
why our homemade happiness
In 2009 my husband got mono and he's just never fully recovered. Walking on a treadmill leaves him exhausted for days. His blood results showed some liver disease, from the Epstein-Barr virus. Since the liver is responsible for filtering chemicals and toxins from the bloodstream, I started to become aware of how many chemicals are in everything we buy, from processed food to household cleaners, lotion, and even air freshener. It's crazy! A lot of people believe this onslaught of chemicals is causing an increase in cancer, asthma, and all sorts of health problems.
I've become inspired to rid my home of as many chemicals as I can, for my family's health. I started Our Homemade Happiness in February 2012 to help others on a similar journey. I hope you'll come along for the ride!
