There was a roasted garlic butter bean hummus, and candied tomatoes with feta, thyme and avocado, piled upon yummy Franjos Kitchen pregnancy and lactation crackers. Nature Baby has kindly shared the recipes on their journal, find them here. x
It's been a beautiful winter, the colder months gently forcing me to slow down, and to create a new family rhythm for our family of five.

Carefully laundered and organised neatly, I have gathered the essentials that we will need in the near future.

There will plenty I'm sure!
