Happy 8th Birthday, Elias

You should have been 8 today. You should have been looking forward to summer break, to you and Noah walking Henry to kindergarten this fall. We should have been planning a party for you. Instead, in the morning, we’ll be getting ready to go to the cemetery, instead. Like we do every year for your birthday.

It never really gets easier, does it.

Happy birthday, Bow. I love and miss you so very much.

Giveaway: Poofy Organics “The” Sunscreen

We keep hearing more and more about ingredients in everyday products that aren’t so safe for us. There are also a lot of companies out there that make a lot of claims about the safety of their products that turn out to be not so good. In some cases, they seem to be outright lying about ingredients.

I want to introduce everyone to Poofy Organics “The” Sunscreen. It comes in both a tube and a stick. You’ve probably never heard of it, which is too bad because it’s a great product. It even keeps my pasty self – and my pasty kids – from burning.

Just as a quick intro, Poofy Organics is a small, family company out of New Jersey. The company started after a family member was diagnosed with breast cancer, causing the family to eschew toxic chemicals. Everything is made by hand to order. They really care what goes into their products!
