How long have you been interested in holistic living?
I have been intrigued by the mind/body connection for a long time, but didn't make drastic changes to my nutrition until 8 years ago (when I got pregnant with my first child).
a little about me
i spend way too much time reading! My kids are my life, they are so much fun and I'm honored to be their mommy. I enjoy my garden, planting, writing about topics on parenting, natural living, and the environment and have recently gotten into bird watching--fascinating little creatures

None really...I do own a small tee shirt business selling organic tees for babies and kids touting pro environment, i.e. pro people, slogans! www.terratees.com
