Sharing In The Process...

So this whole blog thing is something foreign to us, or at least writing one is. My last, and only post was back in 2016 (how can that even be?!?!). You can check it out here, if you didn’t read it, or you can’t remember it (like me). It discussed how and why we began this crazy, fun journey. Since then we’ve had SO much to share. So many goals, challenges, dreams and a whole lotta hard work in between. The more we grow, the more dreams we create, the more excited we get. And really, we want and need to, share these with YOU. You’re the whole reason we’re doing this! So we’re making a promise (hold us to it), that we will be blogging on the regular. We'll be utilizing this as a tool to keep you updated with the all happenings of Cultured Leaf and more!

Now here’s where we’re asking for some help. We want to hear from you! Let us know what you’d like us to blog about. What are some questions you have for us? What would like to know more about? We’re open to discuss just about anything from Kombucha (duh), to fermented foods, running a small business, balance, community….any and all of it. So please, leave your comments below and let us know.

You’ll be hearing from us again soon…promise!

We love your guts,

Jodi & The Cultured Leaf Team

ReThinking Normal

Do you have a moment that grabbed you? A distinct moment that changed your direction, opened your eyes, challenged you? My moment was on a trip to Asheville, NC.  It was our 9th wedding anniversary. I didn't even know it was a "moment" until looking back months later.  We we're enjoying ourselves in a sweet little bookshop downtown, perusing a few books together. We we're chatting, connecting with each other, flipping through beautiful pictures and being inspired.  I came across two simple words that resonated with me...ReThinking Normal. 

I took those 2 words away from that trip and asked myself to begin ReThinking our Normal.  Months later, I had quit my career at that time so I could home school our daughter and began shaping a passion of mine into a business. That was almost two years ago and we've had many changes since.

My normal isn't yours and your normal isn't mine. My normal today may not be my normal tomorrow. It should be evolving and growing with me and my family. My goal now is to challenge my norm, embrace the change of it, and to continue dreaming about where it's headed.

Embrace YOUR normal, EVEN IF it's far from the norm.
