My husband and I have recently relocated to Norfolk, Va for his job! He is in the Navy and currently working at the largest Military base in the world (Wowza)! We are currently adjusting to a new way of life without a farmers market right down the road and just living in a busy city.
We lived in a hotel for 10 days waiting for our house to be ready. We have now moved into our house and we absolutely love it! This spring we are putting in a garden in the back yard- it will more than likely be a "raised garden" but we will see! We also found a dog park for our little fur-babies to socialize!
Thomas and I are extremely happy to be living together once again! We are hoping to start a family soon as well!! After being apart for a year it is such a blessing to be together!
One pretty cool thing for the moment is we found a Trader Joe's and a Whole Foods. I prefer to buy everything from local farms and farmer's markets, but for now Whole Foods and Trader Joe's is working out. Beware of the "crap" that Trader Joe's sells though! Many of their "sweet treats" have corn syrup in them- just remember to ALWAYS read the ingredients before you buy! I like Whole Foods for the moment because everything is very well labeled. My husband is not a vegetarian like I am, so it is nice to see that the meat is grass fed, free range, etc. If the meat is conventionally raised, the package will say so. I enjoyed the bulk grains and spices sections as well! We bought a mix or organic brown & wild rice. I'm hoping that once spring and summer comes I will find more local cruelty free butchers and markets. We are praying that we will have a good harvest of our own this year as well-- maybe even having a little vegetable stand!
Also my etsy shop is now open! If you are looking for medicine for a cold, flu, etc you will find different tinctures! I carry flower remedies- that are originated from Dr. Bach. We also have organic skin care products, moisturizers, bath salts, soaps (goat's milk, shea butter, or avocado), anti-aging products, hair care products, acne products, diaper rash salves, lip balms, etc. You can put your orders in now and they will be shipped within a week!
Blessings & Love
