I’m surrounded by boxes!

Consumed. That’s the word. I have. so. much. stuff. T loves to remind of me of that too. It’s all good. I know I have a lot of stuff. Being all fair trade, local and eco-friendly has made me really live a simple life a la Simple Mom. I love reading their blog entries to just sometimes, breathe and pause.

I’m unpacking — we found a place to stay and it’s stressful with a baby and preschooler in tow.  We are still in the midst of unpacking, purging, organizing and also cleaning up the old place so I haven’t found the time to say hello to you all in the last couple of weeks.  Hello! I’m still here <<echo, echo>>.

I have been loving instagram and I found a lot of fair trade minded folks and the lovely Sally Medwin from @shopfairtrade (instagram name and the title of her blog) did an interview with another super sweet fair trade gal Kayli who is sharing about how to fair trade your summer through her blog. I think changing consumers habits of thinking of buying more ethically made products starts one product, one person at a time and I love her passion with her journey of shopping fair trade.

Enjoy this while I go back to unpacking and making sure my two wee ones are not getting themselves in too much trouble. I hope to be back on a more regular blog schedule in September.

Also, we still have a super summer sale going on strong until the end of August. Shop for Christmas early — these deals are unreal!
