Sharing recipes, crafts and frugal living, the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum. Yoga Instructor said goodbye to her nightly glass of Chardonnay to give up habits that were not serving her purpose in life! The CocktailMom name remains, however with a new focus on healthy and authentic living.


Journey in Pictures

Now that we have had a break in the weather, the boys and I enjoy heading into the woods next to our house. There we talk about natural resources and watch spring take shape. Amazing questions are asked and together we imagine being small and living in a tree stump. We count logs and watch bugs collect food. With sword and shield in hand we discover the world right outside our front door.

Oh, that wood shed would make my husband drool! We just had our last official fire of the season last night, since we've completely used up our entire wood pile this winter. So, the weather can definitely stay warm now, please!

You are doing something that I always like to do when I was a kid.
Great Job Gretchen. Keep those boys informed about nature.

I am loving those photos. In California we aren't allowed to have wood burning fireplaces anymore-just gas or electric. We also don't have basements like where I grew up in the midwest(maybe 'cause of all the earthquakes?). What a lovely family. I have a boy (our youngest) on the autism spectrum as well. Hugs to you.
