Battling Infertility

Infertility. It is perplexing how one single word can bring about so many emotions. In an ideal world, it wouldn’t exist, as every couple who wanted to have a child would be able to have a child. In the next best scenario, the word would be part of the phrase “we overcame infertility.” Again, every couple wishing to have a child would have one, even if they encountered struggles along the way. Unfortunately, there are too many of us who instead use the phrase “we are struggling with infertility.” And let me tell you, that struggle is real. Every. Damn. Day. Each day...

Cascadian Farm Roadside Stand

One of my favorite aspects of adventuring, as we call it in my family, is that there are always little perks along the way. One recent perk happened on our recent day-trip to the North Cascades National Park Complex (read about it here and here). We stumbled upon the Cascadian Farm Roadside Stand. I would later learn that this marks the home farm location of the popular organic Cascadian Farm brand (I’m a big fan of their raisin bran cereal and peanut butter granola bars). It just so happens that when we stumbled upon this pleasant surprise, I was hopped up on caffeine after a horrible night...
