Nordic Naturals Prenatal and Baby DHA Review and Giveaway (And Our Huge Announcement)

No, I’m not closing down the blog.

Despite the fact that I haven’t been here in…oh…say…over a month!  Life got the best of me this spring – getting in the garden (which still isn’t done!), finishing up our homeschool year, trips to the park (now that the Polar Vortex is behind us), and all of this seasoned with the worst morning sickness ever put me in bed most nights by 9 or 10 – and for me – that’s early!… Read the rest
