About Me
I'm Jade as you might have suspected at this point. I love lots of things, and dislike others. I have an amazing husband and we have two beautiful little girls. Light, laughter, love, nature, photography, beauty in obscure places, incense, being barefoot, science and art are all things that make me smile.
How long have you been dreading?
Since August 2010
Dreading methods, maintenance, and products used (if you currently have dreads)
Had a few as of August 2010, but took them out. In January, on January 14th to be exact I used the twist and rip method to get them started, but my hair is so soft that they just fell out mostly, so I just left them alone and let them form themselves. I use BS and ACV to clean them.

New baby?

Hi ladies, I need some feedback from people who's hearts are open... My husband, and our two daughters are planning to move to Oregon in a year or so. We live in Louisiana so it will be quite the move.... Both of us make around 11 bucks an hour so we are pretty low income, but we have always lived modestly so we don't really want for anything..... Well we had initially decided we wanted another baby and that we would wait until the move is over, we have bought a house, ect....... But my…See More

.. It gets very hard to not feel a tad beaten down by the world around me. I don't live a common lifestyle as it is, never mind in a part of Louisiana that is the basic opposite of New Orleans (ohhh how I love NO)... And I get tired of explaining myself. Or, maybe, not explaining myself, but why I do what I do to others.... I want to, to help them understand and educate themselves, but it's tiresome....because for every positive and uplifting response I get, there are ten more negative…

I finally managed to post some pictures ofJustin and I's wedding. It was wonderful. We had it at a park, barefoot with a very small group of friends and family. Good stuff. So much love floating around!

Say no to goverment drug warrior propoganda and look at the federally funded, scientific studies...  I found this here.

Let me start off by saying my fiance is amazing. AMAZING. I love being with someone who is my intellectual equal, if not surpassing me in so so many areas.

I never expected our indulgence in science and educating ourselves in the facets of it would lead us to... well, I guess, modern day hippie-dom of sorts.

Justin has been practicing Trancendental Meditation at like 4 in the morning, I haven't tried it yet, but I'm very very interested. Mind over matter, scientifically… Continue
