Two exciting announcements!

You may have noticed that things have been quiet around here. Maybe record-setting quiet? Either way, I think I have some ‘splanin to do!

In my last post I mentioned that we’ve been busy as bees behind the scenes building something really special. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you were the first to find out that we’re getting ready to launch the gorgeous Oh She Glows recipe app! The dream we’ve had in the works for years and years is finally happening and I can’t wait to share it with you guys. Keep your eyes peeled for our official launch in the very near future!

What I haven’t shared yet is that I’ve been creating something else, too. As grueling as the app work has been, this work has been even more exciting, exhausting, and life-changing. I’ve been lying awake for hours at night thinking about it. During the day, my thoughts are filled with vinegar-soaked cucumbers (seriously), these fruit chews, and 8:30 pm bedtimes.

Any guesses?

You got it: we’re expecting our second baby this September! That’s right…a second cookbook and a second baby will be dropping (well, hopefully not literally!) in September 2016. Our timing is impeccable, I know. But, joking aside, we always hoped to have our children close in age so we’re very grateful about the spacing; my due date is roughly two years since we brought Adriana home from the hospital. We can’t wait to meet this lil guy or gal!

My main worry right now, aside from the well-being of our little ones and state of this world, is how we’re going to take care of a two-year-old and a newborn. I’m expecting a loss of sanity for the first several months…or decades?! There will be an adjustment period for sure (especially when you add these lovely toddler temper tantrums into the mix), but if Adriana treats her sibling anything like she treats her favourite “baby” doll (lots of doting and kisses), I think it will all work out in the end! We just need to teach her that eye poking and head dropping probably aren’t the best approaches with an actual newborn. Baby steps, people.

I spent the first few months of 2016 revamping and shooting a ton of fan-favourite recipes and photos for our new recipe app. It was an intense few months when I didn’t want to be anywhere near food, but I also enjoyed being distracted with a totally new project! It kept me going. When I wasn’t immersed in the app project (and cookbook editing), I was collapsed on the couch and often feeling down and out (the first trimester blues hit me with both pregnancies, unfortunately). So while things have been quiet on the blog, they certainly haven’t been behind the scenes. Plus, I didn’t think you needed a recipe for salt and vinegar chips, popcorn, dill pickles, mustard-covered veggies (ew), cereal, nut butter and jam toast, or how to convince your husband to pick up a container of vegan caramel chocolate chunk ice cream during a cold snap. (…Or do you?!) Because that’s basically what I lived off of for a month or two. Oh, there was also that day when I decided to drink all the juice from my Bubbies Sauerkraut jar. I didn’t want to eat the actual sauerkraut, just drink the juice. I’m pretty sure Eric was ready to commit me!!! I haven’t touched sauerkraut since. Actually, I think I’ve been banned from buying it in North America.

Now that I’m in the second trimester, I’m slowly getting my mojo back (case in point: I changed out of my sweats for the photo above). Workouts have returned to my life on a regular basis which feels like a damn miracle, and the nausea is starting to fade a bit. The good news is that the app is almost finished, my second cookbook will be heading to the printers shortly, and I’m ready to get back into the swing of things—well, maybe after a much-needed break first.

Of course, I also have some delicious food to share with you soon. Eric strongly discouraged the dill pickle soup recipe I was dreaming up, so with some serious restraint, I moved on to Plan B. This post is already much too wordy, so I’m going to have to share the recipe in a separate post. Stay tuned for the recipe!!! It’s a great one, and I promise it’s worth the wait.

Congrats mostly on the baby and the app of course! One thing I’ve come to learn in life is that truly…..every baby is a miracle, a wonder, a delight. After struggling with secondary infertility I realize what a blessing every. single. baby. is and not take pregnancy for granted!!! You look beautiful and stunning and I just wish you the best and please send some baby dust my way =)

I couldn’t agree more. Thanks for your congrats Laura. I’m sending all the baby dust your way! I truly hope 2016 is your year. xo

10 Erika March 29, 2016

Congratulation on baby number 2! I am so excited for you and I really hope that you’ll consider posting about your pregnancy journey like you did with your daughter. I was kind of obsessed about reading it and would look out each week for an update (and then basically every day when it was coming up on the due date). As a “someday mom”, it was so inspirational and helpful to read!

Reply

11 Angela Liddon March 29, 2016

Thanks, Erika. :) I’m beyond flattered you enjoyed the baby updates so much!! To be honest, I haven’t thought about whether I’ll do updates this time around, but if I do I’ll definitely mention it on the blog.

Reply

12 Emily April 7, 2016

I have to agree with Erika, for a 24 year old very non pregnant woman (!) it was so fascinating just to read about someone’s progression through the process! You are probably snowed under with commitments with publishing & your app etc., but maybe you could do really short one paragraph weekly updates? I mean is it really fair to have done it with Adriane and not with little bump now? :D
You’re an inspiration Angela!

And if it makes you feel any better, I had to stop buying Bubbies because all I wanted was the juice…it was becoming a bit of an addiction, and I’m not pregnant. Lol.

Reply

16 Stephanie March 29, 2016

Really, it’s okay! The Boston Fermentation Festival this year had plenty of vendors who sold jars of the juice from kimchi, saurkraut, etc. Full of all the good prebiotic/probiotic stuff that the solids have.

Whoo, congrats! It was so quiet here that I figured something had to be going on “behind the scenes,” but I would have never guessed baby #2! :) Sounds like Adrianna is already going to be a great big sister.

Reply

25 Rhianna March 29, 2016

Congrats! We added our second little girl last December and our girls are 22.5 months apart. It’s crazy but awesome – I think it’s a great spacing. Baby mode isn’t far from your mind so you just keep going. You’ll be amazing.

And I’m super excited about the app and new cookbook!

I once had pickle soup in a polish restaurant. I wrinkled my nose at the idea but the waitress highly recommended it and she was right – the whole table loved it!

We will be figuring out the toddler plus newborn thing together; I’m due in October. Does Adriana understand yet? My son sort of gets it and keeps telling me there’s a baby inside him, too; it’s so funny!

Reply

39 Angela Liddon March 29, 2016

Aww congrats Kat!! Adriana looks very confused when I point to my stomach and say “baby!!!”. We call her stuffies “baby” so I think she’s like…mom, no that’s not a baby you weirdo! Heh. Are you finding out the sex?

A million congratulations, Angela! The app, the cookbook, and a new little one. You definitely have been busy! I hope this means new baby posts (fingers crossed!) or at least another birth story in the future. Even though I’m a long way from having kids of my own, I was kind of obsessed with reading them haha. It’s so wonderful Adriana will have a sibling close to her age. And I’m sure it’ll be fun for mommy and daddy too when you have a four year old and a two year old stirring up trouble together! :P
Now I’m craving something vinegar-y…

Congrats on Baby #2!!!! My 2 boys are 18 months apart and although it was a little nutty at the beginning, I wouldn’t change it for anything. They are such good buddies who are both at a similar stage of what they like to do, etc which makes outings and activities so much easier. I love watching them together!

Reply

48 Mary Golosinski March 29, 2016

Congratulations to you! I sympathize with the first-trimester woes. When I was pregnant with my second, it was not one particular food that made me sick, but the sensation of eating anything at all. And I love to eat! Go for it with the pickle soup! There’s a good recipe for it in the cookbook “Love Soup” that came out a few years back. I like to make it a little more dilly and a little more pickly though :)

Reply

49 Angela Liddon March 29, 2016

Thanks for the recipe suggestion, Mary! :)

Reply

50 Liane March 29, 2016

Congratulations on your new addition! I had my boys that close together, and the first year was pretty bumpy and wild, but now that they are 7 and 8 (almost 9!) they love each other so much, and that haze of early parenthood was so worth the outcome. I totally recommend finding a second time mom’s group (if you have the time), it’s so important to connect with other folks who are experiencing the same joys and challenges. (full disclosure: I’m pretty biased, as I oversee these kinds of groups in the Boston area for a living) Feel free to ping me when the time comes- I’m happy to help – my boys also love your taco and 10 spice soup recipe, we have both sooo often! Yum!

Reply

51 Angela Liddon March 29, 2016

Liane, that’s so sweet of you to offer! I really appreciate it. I totally agree about having a network of mom friends and regular meetups. It’s made such a difference in my first couple years of pregnancy and motherhood. So happy to hear that the close age was worth all the work!

53 Nikki March 29, 2016

Congratulations Angela! I had my second baby this past August, 3 years to the week after my first. Before #2 arrived I stocked my freezer with glo bars (which the 3 year old LOVES to make with me!) so I would always have something I could eat one-handed when the baby arrived!

Reply

54 Angela Liddon March 29, 2016

That’s such a great idea Nikki! I had some stocked in my fridge before Adriana arrived, but I didn’t make nearly enough. I think this time I’ll have to invest in a deep freezer and fill it, haha. Thanks for your congrats!!

Reply

55 Julie March 29, 2016

Congratulations! Our kids are similar aged, and I think the thought of having another has crossed my mind, but oh, to take that leap back into the newborn days… But you’ve done great and will continue to do great and hopefully you will continue to post!

80 Colleen Goodrich March 29, 2016

Congratulations on your baby news and new cookbook. Like others I have also given your cookbook as a gift to friends and family. The other thing I like to do is find a pretty container with a lid ( in a thrift store), fill it with your pumpkin pie pecan butter and give it to a friend – with the recipe, and the cookbook name. My quilting friends are blown away with that recipe and your coconut cream – and it’s hard to impress quilters!
My sister and I were 15 months apart in age and the closest of friends until she passed away in 2011. There’s nothing better than a close sibling to whom you can tell your deepest and silliest thoughts. They always understand and never judge. I wish you and your family all the best of luck and love.

Reply

81 Angela Liddon March 29, 2016

87 Nicole W. March 29, 2016

Warmest wishes to your family! The gift of a sibling is the greatest one you can give to Adrianna! There are uncountable blessings in having your children close together and, though I don’t give unsolicited advice, I do spend my days with little ones aged 1 through 19 and have seen for myself the bonds that form between those close in age, so I encourage you not to worry (and to try to co-ordinate their naps so you can rest, too! Not develop a recipe, test a recipe, write a blog post, take pics for instagram, respond to facebook posts, write a new cookbook or develop an app!! Sleep, Mommy!)
And, uh, I would actually like to have a dill pickle soup recipe.
Maybe one with beets so you could call it borscht and avoid the weird stares!
On a serious note, what a busy and fulfilling year for you all. God bless!

Just an FYI? Dill pickle soup isn’t really that crazy. I know its eaten in Polish homes, likely other slavic countries. It’s actually really good and not as gross as people seem to think….

Reply

98 Lauren March 29, 2016

Congrats!! I had a hunch your big news was going to be a pregnancy announcement! I’m currently pregnant with our second so ours will be 28 months apart but our first born is very excited. We bought him a doctors kit so everyday he gives the baby a checkup. He loves the midwife appointments too and comes to every one. Getting Adriana involved in any way possible might make it easier. I heard big siblings love feeling important and helpful with the new baby. I’m dying to know which salt and vinegar chips you eat!?! I really miss lays since going vegan and can only find kettle cooked type vegan ones.

Reply

99 Angela Liddon March 29, 2016

Congrats on your pregnancy Lauren! What a fun idea to buy a doctor’s kit! Oh that would be right up her alley. I hear getting them involved makes such a difference (even letting them help with bottle feedings and other things). I’ve been eating the kettle cooked S+V chips. I tried the light and original, and didn’t care for the light too much (too firm), lol. I also wish they were organic. :( It’s really hard to find good organic S+V chips…I’ve looked everywhere!

Yayyyy!!!!!
So, so happy for you, Angela.
I was about a month behind you with your pregnancy with Adriana (my son was born in Oct ’14), and while I’m no where near ready for a second child of my own, I do hope to follow any updates you choose to share with us.
I’m so excited for your new cookbook, and I’ll have to sign up for your newsletter again (I thought I did before?!).
An app, too? So exciting. You’re practically taking over the world.
You look beautiful and so, so happy, and I’m glad you’re starting to exit that first trimester funk.
Can’t wait to read about your latest recipe (though I will admit I’m glad it doesn’t feature sauerkraut juice!). ;)
All the best <3

105 Angela Liddon March 29, 2016

Hey Catherine, thanks so much for your kind words! And for your excitement about the updates and book. :) I just asked Eric about you not getting the newsletter, and he said some email providers can have filters. I would suggest checking your junk folder (the last one was sent last week on March 25th I believe). If worst comes to worst, try signing up again – maybe there was a glitch! Another thing you can try is adding our newsletter email into your contacts list (newsletter[at]ohsheglows[dot]com) so it thinks it’s a “safe” email. I hope one of these things works!

Go for the dill soup. I have had carrot and dill soup and plain dill soup. They are both delicious. One persons weirdness can be just what another person needs.

I’ve already booked off work for they day your cookbook comes out, as I don’t think I’d be able to wait until the end of the work day to start cooking from it. Also, I’m eagerly awaiting the launch of your app, mainly because of all the beautiful photographs you’ve taken. Your photography style has evolved so beautifully, and I am SO loving your white + bright pics as of late.

Reply

128 Angela Liddon March 30, 2016

Hi Candice, Aww thank you! I’m definitely hoping to do some kid-friendly recipes in the future (possibly in the app, too). While I don’t label my diet/lifestyle as vegan anymore (see my blog post called “Food for thought”), and Adriana does not have a label on her diet either, we obviously still love to eat plant-based foods!

Congratulations, Angela! (And Eric and Adriana!)

I have followed your journey from the 2nd blog post you ever made on the Oh She Glows website and your journey has truly helped me in so many ways. I am a senior in college and have struggled with my weight and my desires to eat right for over 8 years. I am also allergic to gluten and dairy, so the struggle is just that much more difficult. But your recipes, your enthusiasm, and your journey have been inspiring me for years and I just wanted you to know that.

Thank you for sharing your stories, your food cravings, and opening up your kitchen to us.

Sincerely,

Iliana F

Congratulations on all the exciting developments! My sister and I are just under two years apart and, from a sibling perspective, the timing has been perfect. It’s not hard for her to project forward to where I am and I can easily remember what it was like to be at her point in life, so we relate to each other extremely well. Also, it meant we could start sharing clothes even before we settled into our roughly stable young adult sizes, since were were always relatively similar. I’m sure there will be times when it’s crazy having two little ones, but if their experience is anything like mine you’re giving them and incredible gift!

Yes you are going to be in for a gruelling few months (years) but hopefully your two will be as close as mine and you can do lots of things that they both want to do at the same time . Unlike if you have a bigger gap where one had passed a stage and the other is still in it . Good food , a good partner and taking all the help you are offered will help . Good luck . Twenty two years in it gets much better x

Congratulations on the second September baby! My twins were born in September, as was my brother and his daughter (all near the end of the month), so it’s a big party month in our family, too! I’m also excited about the new book and app. I wanted to share that you have major street cred at our house; whenever I make a new recipe, as I did this past weekend with your Warm Spring Salad, so long as I preface it with, “It’s an Oh She Glows recipe, okay?” my son (Mr. Picky Eater) mellows out and agrees to try it. (My daughter is happy to try any and all foods, happily.) Excited to see the upcoming recipe; I’ve missed your postings, but totally understand the delay.

Congratulations on your new little one, you must be over the moon! I can’t wait for the new cookbook! African Peanut Stew is often a weekly staple of mine, among others, but it’ll be nice to try some new ones! :-)

I know my post will probably go unnoticed, which is totally understandable, but I had to come on and mention the idea that ran through my head like a mantra the entire time I was reading your new post…

… OSG meal planner!!

I just wanted to throw that out there if you hadn’t already considered it… If there was a way to make your new app work as a meal planner, I would not hesitate to pay $15 a month for it, and I doubt I’m the only one!

I recently subscribed to a meal planner @ $15/month, hoping it would steer me toward some healthy options since the blogger who was selling it claims herself a natural, whole foods mama (out of respect to her, I’ll leave her name out of it)… I like the idea of a meal planner to help make life a little easier. Making a grocery list every week while trying to please a large family (I have 4 daughters) is no joke. I really dislike grocery planning and would welcome something that would help make it a little less stressful! Sadly, there were very few options for healthy meals available with this particular planner so I stopped subscribing. I was not convinced that recipes calling for heavy cream and bacon grease could possibly be good for my family!

To this date I have not found a vegan meal planner that is self directing. I’m aware that Lindsay Nixon offers a vegan meal planner, but last I checked, she creates them herself week by week, and I’m looking for something more customizable.

Do you use a meal planner program? I imagine since you test so many recipes you probably wouldn’t have much a need for one and have a fridge full of amazing recipes (and empty sauerkraut jars), but I’m curious! :)

Anyhow, an OSG Meal Planner?! Would be amazing – just sayin’!

Lots of love,

Kristina

When you get your “baby blues” please think of the people whose lives you have saved! Thank you!

Congratulations from BC! You look beautiful! Don’t worry about the toddler and newborn thing… It will work itself out. The hardest part is adjusting to having one baby, after that, you’re a pro! (Tried and true advice from a momma of 4 boys in 6 years.). Angela, you’re an expert already. :)

Reply

221 Angela Liddon March 30, 2016

4 boys in 6 years…wow, that’s amazing! My mama friends have said the same thing (adjusting to one child was much more difficult than from 1 to 2 kids). After that point, you’re just adding chaos to the chaos right? ;)

Pickle soup is a thing! You’re not crazy! It’s a Polish staple, usually made with salt brined (kosher) pickles, not dill, but I lived on it as a kid. Stock, carrots, chunks of potatoes, grated pickles, and a dollop of “sour cream”. Mmmm.

Congrats! On both exciting news! Just wanted to share that you will be just fine with a newborn and a two year old. I delivered our baby boy the day after my girls second birthday. That party was the last thing on “the to do list” before I felt ready to go into labor so I guess he couldn’t wait the extra week until our due date.

I was also worried but I promise you it will just sort itself out. When the baby sleep you can give big sister some one-on-one time and she will quickly adjust. Also, I realized that I had to just let go of some of the cleaning and “have to’s” around the house. Less pressure on ourselves in the household department makes for less bad conscious. Looking forward to following your journey! Greetings from Norway :)

242 Robyn March 30, 2016

Congratulations Angela! I have 2 girls that are 23 months apart and although it was nutty for the first few months, you will adapt and you will survive (even potty training). I found that my first born was only interested in the baby if I included her and asked for her help (getting wipes etc.). They are now 4 and 6 years old and get along very well most of the time. My second is more independent and I think it’s because the attention wasn’t solely focused on her all the time.
On a different note, I agree that pickle soup is a thing and it’s delicious.

Reply

243 Angela Liddon March 30, 2016

Hey Robyn, Well, now I must make pickle soup!! It seems to have quite a few fans on the blog. ;) That’s so great to hear about your experience with your girls. I’m sure they’ll grow closer and closer as the years go by. I’m trying to think of all kinds of ways to involve our oldest so she doesn’t feel left out – I think that’s key!

It changed our life and the ones of all the people I know who read it: “Siblings Without Rivalry: How To Help Your Children Live Together So You Can Live Too”, Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish. A toddler and a newborn are not easy to deal with for the first 2 years but then, they play together all the time. Good luck!

I don’t give out advice, except this is something we did right. I sure it helped our oldest at 25 months old to like her sister.
When people came over, for the first while of a visit, we asked them to not pay attention to the new baby and pay attention to the older child. She was never jealous of her baby sister.
Good Luck Angela! you will be and will do just fine with 2 little ones.

Soooo happy for you beautiful! I had a feeling that’s what was up! Wonderful news for you all!

I’m wonder if you might answer a question (ok if too personal), here in Melbourne Australia, we are now being forced to vaccinate children or we lose benefits and are banned from school – thankfully I don’t have kids yet, but this really worries me – have you/will you vaccinate Adriana and your new baby? I’m not judging you if you do, I have my own reasons why I don’t want to but my sister has with my neice and that’s her choice, for me it’s all about choice! I’d love to know anything you want to share on this, i loved reading your baby section on your blog (which I’ve always loved).

Dear Angela, Congratulations on baby#2 on the way! I love your cookbook and have ordered several copies for my friends who all dabble in the world of veganism. I was vegan for 5 years and stopped I stayed vegetarian but there aren’t really an good reasons except that I had to move back in with my parents back in 2008 and felt I was inconveniencing them with my “restricted” diet.

I am inspired by your recipes and want to get back into the vegan world of cooking and living. It is hard because my husband eats meat and we seem to go through a lot of dairy. I am starting slow. I wondered if you could recommend certain staples that you always keep in your pantry. I apologize if someone has already asked, (I am new to your blog), I am also a new mom and want to be vegan again. God Bless you!

Jane

Dear Angela

I am slowly but surely changing my life and your cookbook and recipes on this blog keep me focused on, and excited about, the attainment of a healthy body and life.. I am curing chronic pain with a vegan lifestyle ( though I have been vegetarian for almost 16 years). I find myself at 59 years old coming into my 60th year with a new outlook on life!
You have been and continue to be part of that change…so thank you. I appreciate your openness about your struggles…real life stuff.I appreciate your fun approach to food, which has been my enemy for “oh so long”, and I can tell you that…healing feels so good.
I send you heartfelt congratulations on the new baby.

That’s a surprise and the best news possible in this news edition … how you manage to do all with such creative flair is amazing. I hope for yourself & family, you’ll be able to take some maternity time to rest, enjoy & regroup. We, your enthusiastic fans, will understand and watch for your return with even greater anticipation.

My question … I’m the last of the hold-outs on smart/i-phones etc and operate fine with a flip phone and 100 minutes per year. The new ‘Oh She Glows’ recipe app will not apply to folks like me if I understand correctly. Will a comparable recipe app be available on line, or included with the new format newsletter?

My chil are grown now and these magical, preschool years of 24/7can be quite intense in terms of personal involvement – yet ironically fly by so quickly.

Love everything I have made out of your book. I do wish that the nutrition break down was listed at the end of each recipe. As an athletic family, I really have to stay on top of the protein. It just personally reminds me to choose the recipe that has higher protein if it is a more physically active week. I tend to get hypoglycemic if I have too much carb, even if it is healthy complex carbs, if i have not had enough protein. Post, post, post, you made my day yesterday when i checked FB and right away knew what I was going to make for dinner. Love it when I can feed my son something I feel so good about.

Your wonderful work with creating delicious tasting healthy food is making a massive difference to the way my family eats now. We are a few months in to eating like this, and honestly, had I not come across your cookbook (even before your blog) we probably would be still struggling, and I fear probably returned to less desirable eating habits. My kids love baking and for special treats your one bowl double choc-chunk cookies are our absolute favourite, beating any non-vegan sugar & fat laden recipe out there. And there’s not been one meal that we wouldn’t try again and again. So much flavour in all your recipes! I can’t wait until your next book is out, but in the meantime we’ll be enjoying the blog.
And don’t worry, I have a hunch you’ll do a wonderful job at juggling life with a new little one. Thank you, we truly appreciated this wonderful resource.

We just welcomed our 2nd baby into the world a couple of weeks ago- our two are exactly 23 months apart, to the day! So far my main advice: make more freezer meals than last time, accept more help around the house than last time, and don’t expect to ever finish the laundry ;) Postpartum this time around has been so much easier because you know more what to really expect with your body, hormones, etc.
Congratulations and wishing you all the best!!!

Congrats to you all. After successfully making most of the recipes in your Oh She Glows Book my husband (gluten free) has decided to go VEGAN! I have two meat eating young adults still at home. I feel confident in your recipes, they are always successful and delicious. I can’t live without you, sorry to say, and need to develop a repertoire of more things. Looking forward to any new recipes or ideas you can come up with.

And when I was pregnant with my son I ate a whole purple cabbage one night. I could have single handedly sent a space shuttle into outer space. Then when I discovered I was pregnant with twins, all I could eat for three months was gefilte fish. Honestly.

Hang in there and be well.

Dana, Your comment is equal parts hilarious (purple cabbage!!) and inspiring. Way to go, to your husband!! That is so awesome. I’m thrilled that my recipes could be helpful in your day to day life! All my best.

Congratulations! I’m a little late to the party- but was excited to see the big news of the baby and the app! I’m currently 14 weeks- expecting early October and also have a toddler, so will be learning to juggle 2 with you. :-) I was introduced to the plant based word last year and I love love love your first cook book. I’m very much looking forward to the second. While we’re not a strictly plant based family, I love to incorporate it into our diets as much as possible and it makes me truly happy when my toddler partakes. She loves “our perfect veggie burger”! I’ve made several of your recipes for my omnivore friends and they are always a hit! Thank you for your great work and congrats again!

Congratulations Angela and Eric!
My kids are 20 months apart and the first year was crazy, maybe it was the first three years until our son was in kindergarten. They are 20 months apart but we’re only one year apart in school and we’re friends through high school and still are in their twenties. Such fun times are ahead for you!

OOOH, I completely missed this news! how incredible! Congratulations, on both big celebration-worthy surprises!
Also, I’ll happily admit I’ve drank the juice/water of the sauerkraut jar multiple times, and I’ve never been preggers. It’s just so yummy! (might also have to do with low blood pressure though ;))
