Last Week in Moments
As the boys are getting older, I've been starting to think a little bit more about what I want to be when I grow up. I absolutely love being home with them so that's not changing. But I did something I never in a million years thought I'd do — I signed on with Beautycounter as a consultant.
Why Beautycounter? This past year in I’ve made a huge effort to focus on my health and wellness. For me, it’s about food, diet, exercise and making smart choices when it comes to personal well-being. Beautycounter has been an essential part of this journey.
The personal care industry in the US is extremely behind the times — we haven’t passed a major federal law to regulate the safety of ingredients used since 1938, and only have 30 partially banned chemicals to date. Compare that to the EU, where more than 1,400 are banned. It’s crazy to me that we need to even think about this. Beautycounter advocates for higher standards within the beauty industry, so you don’t need to think twice about what you are putting on you, or your family’s skin. What ultimately sold me was knowing that everything offered is high-quality, safe and works well on my sensitive skin. I'm so excited to be a part of this movement. Feel free to following along:

Every Friday night since the beginning of November, C and a couple of his club teammates have been playing on a futsal team coached by one of his teammate's fathers. Last week they won the championship! What a blast.
Brian I took a long walk (over 4 miles) with the dogs. This view never gets old to me.
On Sunday, first C had a soccer game and right after, H -- all on our home field. That never, ever happens! Both sides of the family, and two of Ian's soccer teammates from Waldorf University, came to cheer the boys on. It worked too -- they both won their games.
This could not have worked out more perfect! My niece sent a text that she would be in our neck of the woods for her lacrosse game. It happened to be at University School Milwaukee, where C had a track meet that afternoon. The lacrosse field was seriously right next to the track. All we had to do was turn around and we got to watch both. Perfect!
This tree in our yard is blooming. Such a nice surprise. I always seem to forget about this one.
