Finding A Healthy Balance in Healthy Living

We are a family who eats veggies and cooks at home, but we are also a family that occasionally goes out for ice cream sundaes. We are a family who fills our lives with movement and nature, but we also deeply value cuddling up together in front of a favorite movie.

And we want to be able to live a life we can sustain, instead of trying to be perfect each and every day.
