So blessed to announce that Baby Morris will be joining us in September!

first baby announcement purelytwins

Seriously this has been one of the hardest things to keep a secret. Especially through all the style and flavors of recipes that we’ve been posting lately, and me looking different in all our workout videos. Β  It feels so nice to not have to keep quiet anymore. I’ve wanted to say something for so long, but was waiting for the right time.

I will have more details coming soon! Β My journey to getting pregnant was a long one… I will share my story tomorrow.

OMG I’m so excited for you!!!! Especially since I’m pregnant too, my little boy is expected in July already (I’m in the 25th week). I had a very very hard time getting pregnant too, so I can really relate to you (although I’m looking forward to reading about your exact story, I’m going to share mine on my blog really soon too, I feel it might help some women out there knowing that they are not alone). I wish you all the best and am looking forward to reading about everything that is about to come!!! Have a great day! Ulli (PS: I have a dog too, so I always love seeing Jax on the blog ;-))

Woop! Congratulations! I’ve been following your blog for the last couple of years and you’ve really inspired me not to be scared of fats and carbs, and I love your recipes, so thank you!. I don’t normally comment but as a soon to qualify midwife in England anything pregnancy/baby related is uber exciting to me! It will be really interesting to hear about your pregnancy care as its apparently very, very different in America.

I know I don’t “know” you…but I’ve been reading your girls, blog for so long now and feel like I do! After everything you’ve been through – this must feel amazing. All the best to you and your growing family.

Also…being an aunt myself, I’d also like to congratulate Michelle on her upcoming “aunthood”.

Big hugs for you both!

Hello Lori and Michelle,

I was looking for gluten free (yes, i am one of the many who has wheat intolerance) doughnut recipes last night, and after clicking too many links I came across your website and pinterest. I also have hormonal acne (on top of hormonal imbalances-PCOS), dry skin, and dry-scaly scalp problems. I just wanted to say, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for sharing your story, journey, and tips regarding balancing health. Today is day one to try your recommended products.

P.S. Lori, congratulations! That is a very exciting news! πŸ™‚

Love all the way from Michigan.
