I've been feeling the pull to start blogging again.  I stopped about two years ago because I felt like my life was pretty hectic with work and family obligations and I didn't want the blog to pull me away from the important moments in my life that needed my full attention.

Now that I am no longer working outside the home and both of my boys are in school, I feel like I can dedicate more of my time to it. 

There have been many changes with our diet and my personal journey with food and health over just the last 3 months. I have had issues with digestion and low energy levels for several years now and have felt like I was going in the wrong direction on a vegetarian diet. 

After reading several blogs pointing me to I signed up and listened to it. I thought this whole gluten free, paleo/primal movement was just a passing fad that couldn't be all that healthy for you. But, I was wrong! 

As a family we have been eating primal-ish since October and it has completely changed our lives!! I have no more digestion issues at all and as an added bonus my skin has cleared up and I have more energy! My husband no longer has heartburn after meals and he is no longer having muscle cramps (cramps in his hands and arms would wake him up at night). He says he feels like he did when he was in his 20s. :)

It has been trial and error to learn to cook without wheat or sugar but there are so many resources at our fingertips that help make things easier. Pinterest is a BIG help.

Food and health will probably be a big focus of this blog but I don't want it to be solely dedicated to it. I feel like God has been working in a big way in our little family and I also want to use this space as a way to sort out the things on my heart and the direction He may be leading us.
