Why do I do it?

People often ask me how I got started on this crazy, wanna live naturally, do it myself lifestyle. The answer is simple…necessity. Have you checked out the “healthy” stuff in the stores? It’s always more expensive than buying the cheaper, full of chemicals options. I don’t know about you but I don’t have extra money to spend living healthy. 

I’ve always been a gardening, canning, walking through the woods to see what I can gather, make it myself kind of gal. I started to take things more seriously after two recent cancer scares. I became more conscious of what was on the labels of what I was buying. Reading labels on everything…and I mean everything…I bought has been a real eye opener for me let me tell ya! It gave me the push I needed to keep taking things “one step  further” and gave me the need to share with others what I already knew and what I continue to keep learning. 

I decided to blog about how to grow and/or forage for your own herbs and what to do with them once you have them. Yes, there will be step by step instructions along with some free recipes 🙂 I will share with you what I know about gardening, canning, freezing and dehydrating your fruits and vegetables. I will share with you some recipes on simple homemade beauty products you can make yourself. Basically, I will be blogging anything I can think of to help you live a more natural, chemical free, healthier, often times cheaper, DIY lifestyle. 

Until next time,
