If it's good, share it

We have been drinking raw cow's milk for a couple weeks now. Guess what, good news for the lactose intolerant: I can totally digest it, no problems!

This is because raw milk has not been pasteurized (heated up) and therefore retains all of the enzymes that natural to milk, including lactase, the enzyme that helps us digest milk.

We are raw milk converts now. Especially when it's from such a reputable source, a farm that has never had any issues with contamination or food poisoning, we are happy!

We buy from though not online. They have a "hub" (a truck, essentially) in Glendale where we buy their stuff for almost half the price they used to sell it at Whole Foods Market. A family at our Bible Study also buys from them and they've been drinking their raw milk for years.

I am a total "natural parenting" mom, so guess what Noelle is going to be drinking once she can start dairy?

You and Me

What day is it
And in what month
This clock never seemed so alive
I can't keep up and I can't back down
I've been losing so much time

Cause it's you and me and all of the people
With nothing to do, nothing to lose
And it's you and me and all of the people and
I don't know why I can't keep my eyes off of you

- "You and Me," Lighthouse

This is us honeymooning 2 1/2 years ago, with all the fullness of heart and lightness of spirit that we began with when we got married.

Today we are a family of three, but when all the business of life is over, and the baby is sound asleep, it's just you and me and I love our quiet life together.
