HI folks! We’re in the middle of construction on this site and this particular post is far from finished. I’ll leave it up in case any kind souls visit, but please hang in there with us as we navigate some bumps in the road with getting this project off the ground!!!
Hello everyone and welcome and thank you so much for coming! I am the Roxanne half of the sister-endeavor and here’s just a little about me. Over the past 15 years we have eliminated and replaced so many common household items, food staples, bad habits and other goods for living that ultimately just kept us from reaching our full potential. I personally suffered from fatigue all the time(at least it felt that way). If I had a dime for every time I have thought or said, “I’m just too tired to do…” goodness, I would certainly stop working until my kids were in school! While I still battle that some (these days mostly due to being the 23-weeks-pregnant working mom of a 2.5 year old), I have made huge strides in taking back my life from what felt like days just slipping away.
I have big dreams, goals and ideas! Ideas, I cannot even begin to scratch the surface on ideas here, but hopefully those ideas will start seeing the light of day more often than not as I plan on being ever more successful with healthy living now that I’ve got accountability by putting it all out there on the internets. Haha! Trust me, not all steps are easy – I struggle the most with making good eating choices after a night of interrupted sleep. So that would be every day I guess.
But! That’s a big one because there are so many easy changes you can make to live a healthier lifestyle and have a safer home for yourself and your children. I think for a lot of my friends, a growing family is often the catalyst for asking more questions about what we are bringing into our homes and putting into our bodies. So we are here to share what we know and encourage our family, friends and communities into implementing easy changes to create not only better living through healthier choices, but also a more sustainable lifestyle.
We are anxious to have others join us on the journey. While I do not claim to have the answers (not even close!) I probably have a great resource to share regarding whatever specific issue you may have on your mind. Do you want to live in a world without DANGER warnings on items in your house and free from worrying how exposure to every day household chemicals and items in your home could affect your kid or even grandkids? Me too.
My ultimate goal: To feel as alive as I do when breathing the mountain air. Something about the Colorado mountains and rivers gives me energy that I can never seem to capture fully when I’m home. These old pictures are just about right – one in mid-sentence with a bit of a furrowed brow and one when I just feel energized after my first catch!
