How to Woo Your Wife during Any at-Home Date Night

The Presence of Fatherhood


Written March 1, 2017: One night about five months ago I lay in bed with my head spinning. It had been spinning all day. I had slacked on my normal routine of a morning and afternoon walk and staying inwardly relaxed, instead letting myself get caught up in peoples’ excited attitudes at work. I don’t feed on excitement like …

Why We Don't Use Air Conditioning


We have lived in two different apartments since being married, both equipped with either central air or a window air unit. Yet, as a general rule, walking into our house will not bring you any temperature relief in the summer! I know some people …


Homemade Socks are the Bomb


A few days ago, I was taking an afternoon break from my usual chores, and I sat down and pulled out my knitting. I was working on an adorable little newborn sock for our coming little one (surprise!!). As the foot began to take shape, I was filled with so much joy and …


5 Minute Peanut Butter Mousse


The other day I was really craving a protein smoothie, but upon looking in our freezer, found that I was out of the frozen bananas that I generally use as a smoothie base. Usually this would deter me, but I really was craving a smoothie. I decided to just throw some …


Salted Caramel Ice Cream


When experimenting with ice-cream one night, I accidentally discovered how to make a yummy salted caramel flavor. The caramel flavor came from coconut sugar. The salt came from salted butter I put in, in an attempt to make the ice-cream creamier. It didn’t work, as …

Will There Be Seasons in Heaven?


The seasons are a beautiful microcosm and example of our beautiful life cycle. We all know it and have all observed it. In the spring, we have new life and tons of growth. Plants, flowers, animals. It seems that everywhere we look, the colors and blossoms of fresh and new life are …


Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies... with a Twist (Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, GAPS, SCD Friendly)


After changing our diet, one of the things Chloe and I sorely missed were the occasional baked goodies. We found and enjoyed grain-free recipes for brownies, cake, and other things. However, eventually …


The Pleasure of Seasonal Eating


Making the shift to real food eating can make your budget skyrocket… if you don’t shift your food buying mindset in addition. When we first jumped onto the “real food” boat and started focusing more on organic fruits and veggies, I just continued to grocery shop like I always had …


Use and Uselessness


My mind drifted as I lay awake in the early morning. I thought of the stars shining brightly outside and listened to the beeps of semis echoing from the factories across town. An idea, perhaps born from the juxtaposition of stars and semis, was conceived in my mind: “use and uselessness.” …


Where Have the Baskets Gone?


The other day the wife and I were perusing an antique store. Suddenly I realized that baskets were everywhere, stacked on top of shelves, sitting on floors or crates, peeping out from cupboards. Big baskets, little baskets. Baskets with gingham cloth. Baskets with handles. Baskets without handles. Baskets made of dark wood. Baskets made of …


The Most Delicious Real Food Oreos (Gluten-Free, Paleo, GAPS, SCD friendly)


I absolutely LOVE oreos. In the distant past of a previous life, Will would oftentimes bring me home a little surprise gift of flowers and my own personal six pack of oreos. Delish! My favorite kinds are birthday cake and any with colored cream in the middle-somehow they seem to …
