Did you know the 🚨first 1000 days🚨are the most crucial in our entire lives for development? These days are the building blocks that set up our most prized possessions, our babies 👶🏻, for good (or poor) health in the years to come. We believe so strongly in the power of proper nutrition for our babies to reach their fullest potential. This is why we do what we do:
“The right nutrition during this 1,000 day window has a profound impact on a child’s ability to grow, learn and thrive.” - thousanddays.org
“Early life, from conception through to our second birthday, is a period of growth and development more rapid and significant than at any other stage of our lives. Since all of our organs and tissues are being formed and educated during this time, it offers a unique window of opportunity to shape our lifelong health.” - nutriciaresearch.com
“By age 3, a baby’s brain has reached 80% of its adult size. The quality of experiences during the first 1,000 days of life establishes either a strong or fragile foundation for everything that follows.” - first1000daysfl.org
“The first 1,000 days of life - the time spanning roughly between conception and one’s second birthday - is a unique period of opportunity when the foundations of optimum health, growth, and neurodevelopment across the lifespan are established.” - UNICEF
“Proper nutrition within the first 1,000 days of a child’s life can have a lot of benefits. It can ensure a healthy development of a child’s brain and body. A good diet can also improve a child’s educational potential. And we know how having healthy children can help their country, and even the world. A healthy child will be overall more adjusted and achieve better grades in school. Hence, have a higher chance at getting a good job. This will even lower inequality, and save more than a million lives every year.” - hmhb.org

Our Finger Lakes tasting adventure began at Ravines Wine Cellars...
A snow storm was just wrapping up when we arrived promptly to Ravines at 9 AM. The long driveway led us back to the beautiful rural estate. Lisa Hallgren, Ravines proprietor, welcomed us to the property leading us into the tasting room set in a gorgeous old barn filled with beautiful details.
As the tasting began, Lisa shared how the journey between her and her husband Morten, led them from Texas to Europe and here to the Finger Lakes in New York State.
Located near Keuka Lake, she explained with passion, how each bottle of Ravines is very expressive of the soil. After each sip, It wasn’t hard to imagine what food would pair perfectly with the wine we tasted.
We’re looking forward to a trip back to experience the Ravinous Tasting Table and enjoy more of the wines offered!

These necklaces feature Smoky Quartz, Sodalite, and Clear Quartz crystal spheres encased within geometric cages hung on adjustable brass chain with silver accents. Each of these babes are available to purchase in the shop. •Smoky Quartz gently dissolves negativity as it encounters it, allowing positive frequencies to take their place. By relieving any negative emotions, it teaches one how to let go of what is no longer necessary for growth.
•Sodalite inspires insight, awakening, examination, and connection. Called the blue “Logic Stone,” Sodalite emits an easy, tranquil energy that clears the mind and elicits deep thought, expanding the ability to arrive at logical conclusions based on rational consideration.
•Resonating at the level of an individual's needs, Clear Quartz amplifies whatever energy or intent is programmed into it, and continues to broadcast that energy throughout the world and into the etheric realms. This may accelerate the fulfillment of one's prayers, intensify healing or spiritual growth, or support manifestation.
