Looking Back

January 8, 2009

The new year usually brings up memories of years past and resolutions for the coming year. I’m (N.) not really into New Year’s resolutions but I do like taking a moment to remember the trials and triumphs we have successfully weathered and the good times we have had. So I give you 2008 in photos.

    How did that homemade shaving soap turn out? This year we’re focusing detoxing our personal care routines and we’re hoping to make some of our own products.

    Hopefully all that garlic does well. It will keep you healthy in 2009!

      We really liked it! J. did need to purchase a shaving brush to get a good lather going but it didn’t cost a lot and it will last a long time. I just used my hands and it worked great. When we made it we stored half in the fridge until we needed to use it.
