I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with food, friends, and family – whether it’s the family you were born into, or the family you’ve chosen over a lifetime! Join us again next week, when I’ll round up the month with the final installment of Thankful Thursday – but until then, here’s…

Today I am thankful for being alone.
Wordless Wednesday – Pregnancy Cravings
Ohhhhh this week. It’s been a year. So even though underneath it all, my life really is lovely and sunny, try as I might, right now I cannot for the life of me come up with the kind of Thankful Thursday post I’d LIKE to write…So instead you guys are going to get reality.

This year, on May 2nd, the day after our son turned 2, we walked into the OB’s office full of excitement and fear. There was no reason for the fear, everything was fine, but there was fear nonetheless. It had settled into my bones and I just couldn’t shake it.

What’s Brandless all about, anyways? Basically it’s about providing you and your family with quality food, personal hygiene, and household products free from the huge markups that come from buying name brand items.
But right now, if I’m being completely honest, there are things I won’t miss. In the balance of wanting my little to stay little forever, there are times when I find myself aching for him to grow up…just a tiny bit.
