Good morning! 

Thank you for being here! I'm so excited to get this blog going and I'm thrilled you're here to check it out! 

I mentioned a little bit of back story in my About section as to where Barefoot and Crunchy came from but here's a little more info. 

I started Barefoot and Crunchy while we struggled with infertility in an attempt to find a more natural solution to getting pregnant rather than turning to fertility drugs. I wanted to know I had exhausted every option before going that route, and I'm glad I did! After 20 months the fertility specialist wanted to put me on fertility drugs but I was determined to give it a couple more months of what I had been doing. I really felt like I was on the right track and sure enough, 3 weeks after that appointment I found out I was pregnant. Sadly, our first pregnancy and subsequently our second both ended in early miscarriages but I had crossed the first hurdle of even getting pregnant and the month after our second loss I found out we once again were expecting. 

I'm now 15 weeks pregnant with our little bird and so happy I took the path I did, and listened to my body. I plan to share more of what worked for me in a later post but my hope is that this little bit of background helps to show you where Barefoot and Crunchy came from and why I wish to continue to blog the successes, and the struggles of a simple, more natural life - especially as I enter the beautiful world of Motherhood!
