Seconds before I walked down the aisle

Waiting for the church door to be opened, stuck in my wedding gown (and the very tight corset), I had no tears of joy or last minute wedding jitters.

Organic Baby Food Jars from Earth’s Best and HiPP Organic

Convinced on how organic baby food is better for my baby than other commercial infant foods, I started my search for organic baby food in the Philippines.  Though I believe preparing home-made baby food is still the best option as it is safer, healthier, more cost-effective, I honestly think there’s nothing wrong to feed her these safe alternatives.
