My name is Kate and I am the wife of a wonderful husband, Jacob; mother to two beautiful daughters, Beckett (Birthdate: August 2008) and Camden (Birthday: October 2011) and a fantastic dog, Tucker (Birthdate: March 2000). We live in a small town just south of the Canadian border in Washington state.
This blog is a chronicle of my attempt to make my life and my family’s life healthier starting on January 1, 2010. We will be reducing our waste; supporting local farmers, producers and vendors; and eliminating chemicals, pesticides and other artificial ingredients and items from our diets and household.
My goals for this blog include:
- I want to reduce our family’s carbon footprint.
- I want to raise my family in a healthier, happier, more productive environment; from our immediate personal environment to our global environment.
- I am hoping to spread information about the local resources in Whatcom County, Washington state and the Pacific Northwest.
- I hope that our family’s plan, decision and lifestyle choices can help illustrate the reasonable changes that can be made in your own home and the positive results.
I appreciate your support and look forward to your comments and suggestions.
