Farm Fun!!!!

Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend.  My weekend was a busy one.  On Saturday I had a “purging itch” and got rid of a lot of junk that I somehow seemed to have collected through the years.  In the process I have cleared a lot of space in the basement and my closet.  Having some space in my closet is a very very good thing (evil laughter 🙂 ).

On Sunday we decided to go to a farm and pick some fresh fruits that are in season right now.  It was an exhilarating experience, the kids got right into it and had a blast.  It is true when they say that “Farmers feed cities”.  I have a whole new perspective and respect for farmers.  There is so much hard work and care that goes into farming, it’s not an easy job to say the least.

On a serious note, it is vital for us to know where our food is coming from and what is being put into it. Did you know that there was a study done in California where scientists detected pesticides and other such chemicals in mother’s breast milk. (check out this link).

So here’s to supporting everything that’s local, organic and healthy.

About Heels Health and Happiness

A little about myself: I was born and raised in Canada. Coming from a family with 4 siblings (total) it was hard to convince my parents to give me enough money to experiment with fashion. You see...I come from a family that puts a LOT of emphasis on Academics and fashion was something that was almost looked down upon....so I did what most kids do, I went the academic route secretly envying fashion from afar. What I hope to achieve in this blog is to experiment with fashion and all things creative. Be it interior decorating, landscape designing, gardening, art and my first love fashion. I invite you all to join me on this journey of fashion and creativity and self discovery. I will make mistakes and fashion blunders but a wise man once said "The best part of the journey is the journey itself not so much the destination"
