THE SAFER WAY TO CLEAN PRODUCE YOU NEVER KNEW

Give Naiya, Sadie and I ALL the fruits and veggies but make them clean! Until recently, I never focused on the fact that SO many harmful chemicals live on the skin of produce even AFTER they’ve been washed in water. Excited to partner with Vege Aqua today to share an all-natural spray that has changed our family’s healthy eating game.  Loving that this company also has an all-natural spray for safely cleaning baby products too–from Sadie’s pacifiers and bottles to toys.

I’m feeling like a super mama this week.  After a number of sleepless nights, I made it through two cross-country flights with Naiya and Sadie (without Phil!) in these crazy uncertain times.  We were masked, armed with sanitizer, snacks, toys, toddler headphones–ALL the things. Rounding up tips and tricks I learned along the way in hopes that they’ll help you and your family too during these uncertain times.

REMEMBER SHOPPING WITHOUT A MASK?

I originally drafted today’s post a lifetime ago when I was uber-prego with Sadie and the world was still “normal.” I remember having such bad morning sickness sorting through all of these grocery store photos, I couldn’t bring myself to press publish so I hit ‘archive.’ Thankful to have rediscovered these shots this week because they have so much more meaning now. Naiya and I took these photos for a branded shoot and today, I’m finding comfort in seeing a snapshot of what life was like before COVID-19. Remember grocery shopping without a mask or without waiting in line six feet apart to get in?! Sharing these photos with you today as well as a family update. Spoiler alert: COVID-19 has really hit home for our family and life over the past few weeks has been a lot.
