Hey y’all. It’s Jess. I am going to bring you a series to help how you can “green” different parts of your home.

Content warning: This article contains subject matter surrounding miscarriage and pregnancy loss. 

Hi all! Its Caitlin here on the blog this week and I am so excited to be a new regular here!

I live in Alberta with my husband, our 18 month old daughter, Aileen, and our 5 pets. I love all things Lil Helper, but also crafting, gardening, and animals. I’m also a preschool teacher and I can’t wait to talk about all things kids and life!

Babies have an especially quick way of filling our homes with “stuff.” Stuff people give you. Stuff your pregnant mind says you absolutely must have. Stuff a new grandma just can’t wait to see her baby play with or wear. Stuff.
