A June Love Affair

A June Love Affair

June has flown by. And I’m okay with that, really. I’m getting larger and larger by the moment with baby #2 and have my fingers crossed that he makes his debut in July (although it could easily be the beginning of August). This pregnancy has been harder than my first, and the summer heat is really making me anxious to have this baby in my arms instead of my belly. But still, I’m grateful to be pregnant and excited to meet this little boy.

Other highlights from June

Learn how to eat right without stressing out!Launching my third ebook, Processed Free, was exciting. This is the book I wish I would have had when I was making my transition to real food. Simple, practical, and useful. In a world that makes eating “right” so complicated, I hope this guide can be a resource for many.

The launch of the Village Green Premium membership. So many awesome deals, and I’ve already made my 4 bucks back in savings. That’s sweetness to me, for sure.

Getting back into the habit of dry skin brushing. As I said, this pregnancy has been rougher than my first… and the swelling was beginning to get really annoying. But once I started dry skin brushing I’ve noticed a HUGE change for the better. Gives me hope that I can make it to the end!

Making the commitment to less plastic. This is something I’ve been working on for years, but I’d let my laziness get the best of me and would far too often forget to bring my reusable bags to the store. No more! I’m committed to doing my part. Learn how you can, too.

And of course, I love spending time with the hubs and this beauty:
