I am Angela and I would really like to thank you for stopping by! I am a very lucky mama. I am married to my best friend and we have 5 kids. Alex (7), Ava (4), and Audrey (2) and my stepdaughters who are 21 and 16. We live on the East coast of Florida on a barrier island. I absolutely love where we live, it is pretty much paradise.
I started this blog to chronicle my families homeschooling experience. As we began to live a more natural life I decided that I would write about that too. So, if you are new to this site you should know that I pretty much blog about anything and everything that goes on in our lives. I realize our life is in a state of constant evolution and this blog reflects this.
I am also getting more comfortable sharing our journey and am beginning to ‘open up’ more on a personal level. I am realizing that there are so many people out there who are on a similar journey. I really really love blogging and have made some really great connections with many like-minded people.
Homeschool: Our home learning is a constant evolution. We began homeschooling in 2011. Our homeschool started as ‘school at home’, that lasted about a week. I have deschooled and we have unschooled. Currently, we are settled in as very relaxed eclectic homeschoolers. When I was going to college to be a teacher I had no idea that I would be a homeschooling mama. I am so happy with the way things turned out and I am proud to say that world is our classroom!
Natural Living: My family is certainly making a dramatic change in our lifestyle. We used to eat fast food, buy bottled water, and use harsh chemicals in our home. We now make our own homemade household cleaners and hygiene products.
I used to run to our pediatrician every time my child had a runny nose. Now we rarely go to the doctor and use homeopathic remedies as often as we can.
My husband and I practice natural parenting. I am a mama who believes in attachment parenting. I co-sleep, wear my baby, breastfeed beyond one year and so much more.
I love to cook. I try to feed my family very little processed foods. We do not eliminate them 100% (I allow indulgences) but I can assure you that we have come a very long way in the last 8 or even 1 year. I love to share my recipes on this blog.
Pretty much we are going back to basics. We are educating at home, making our own household items and eating real foods. In the upcoming year we will be adding chickens to our family (for their eggs) and a big ‘ol garden.
Oh, and one last thing about me. I am a very happy person who believes in kindness. I am on a personal spiritual journey that opens my heart and being every single day. Maybe soon I will begin blogging about that journey!
Love, peace, and happiness,
