Book Recommendation

If you are female and haven't read this book, I highly recommend it.  Even if you do not want to use it as your choice of birth control or are not trying to get pregnant, it is still a fascinating read.  It describes how your body works and some very interesting details you may not have known, since we are really taught about this subject.

I have had this book on my to read list for a while and finally got around to it.  I wish I had read it earlier in my life, since it is very informative.  I finally read it since I have recently decided against hormonal birth control.  No, I am not trying to get pregnant, but if that happens so be it.  I really want this method to work so I don't have to depend on a drug and instead can depend on my body.

I am really trying to get back to the basics and live a simpler life.  I want to be able to not depend on things that I can deal with myself.  This also includes making foods from scratch and getting rid of unnecessary items, like a TV or bed frame.

*side note: I decided I prefer my mattress on the floor after Leland started crawling and was still co-sleeping with us, so we sold our bed frame.  I am looking forward to not having to move that ever again.*

Please go read this book, it is truly fascinating. 


  1. My decision for no hormonal birth control had nothing to do with "living the simple life" but more to do with "scared out of my mind" of the concept. My mom had breast cancer twice and I don't like the idea of artificially messing with nature in the girl department.

    1. Saying the simple life was the quick way of explaining the many reasons I want to stray from hormonal birth control. I agree that I feel the artificial hormones were messing with me.
