Remember the good ol’ days when Granny would call in you from playing in the street for a plate of fresh baked cookies? Remember the good ol’ days when Mom made EVERYTHING you used…toothpaste, shampoo, soap…? Remember the good ol’ days when you needed a new dress, Mom would make one for you?
Well the fact is, most of us probably don’t remember the good ol’ days. We probably remember shopping at J.C. Penny’s for our new school clothes every August. We probably remember that nice blue tube of Crest toothpaste always sitting on the bathroom counter, with a back up in the linen closet. We probably remember Oreos and Chips Ahoy arranged on a plate for us when we got home from school….Our lives have become so commercialized, it would be unrecognizable to those who lived in the good ol’ days. We buy everything we need, usually without giving a second thought to what goes into making it, what goes into getting it to the store, what goes into our bodies….Well, I have decided to change that. I am on a crusade to create the good ol’ days for me and my family. No processed food here, no shampoo, no toothpaste, no diapers from the store.
As I delve deeper and deeper into the world of homemade, I’d like to share my journey with you. There have been a lot of experiments, failed recipes, and interesting stories, but there have also been a lot of successes, triumphs, and awesome smelling deoderants (which I’ll cover in another post….stay tuned). Mostly, there’s been a lot of fun….so come join me!!
