What do you do for a living?

Right now I am a registered nurse working in labor and delivery.  Currently, I am working towards become a Family Nurse Practitioner.

What kind of dog do you have?

I have a Australian Shepherd.  She is hilarious and smarter than is right for a dog.  

Why should I listen to what you have to say about health and wellness?

Just because I am a nurse does not mean that I necessarily know what's best for you and what is not, but it does mean that I have a brain and I know how to use it.  I also have the skills to critically evaluate the wealth of information that is out there and determine if it is valid or questionable (note: most of it is questionable).  

Also to note: I might be a nurse, but I'm not a doctor/nutritionist/therapist/shaman or whatever, which means that you should talk with your doctor or medical provider if you have any health issues or concerns.  While I like to pretend I know everything, I don't.

And please…do not disregard medical advice from your healthcare provider or delay in seeking medical care because of something you read here.

Are you paleo? 

Basically, yes.  However, I don't like to label things because I thnk it limits creativity and decision making. I am more concerned with food quality and eating whole nutritious foods than with deciding whether or not something is "paleo."  

Is your boyfriend paleo? 

Not really.  He eats whatever I cook for dinner (and eats the leftovers for lunch), but he still eats bread and other paleo/whole food unmentionables.  We're working on it ;)

Is you dog paleo?

I am working on transitioning her to a raw food diet.  

Can I send you my product to mention on your blog?

Maybe.  Email me and we can discuss it.  

Will you link to my interesting blog post, add a sponsored link to a post, or share a link to this cool thing I made?


What else do you do that I might care about?

I like to run, ski, knit, sew, and do art projects.  I try and blog about all of these things!

I saw something that you made on your blog but can't find it in your shop...how can I get my hands on it?

Send me an email!  I don't always have time or think that other people might want to buy everything that I make.  But by all means, if I made something that you love and you want...or want to know how I made it, shoot me an email and we'll work something out.
