FREE 30 Day Health Challenge

Ok so this last year has been a doozy.  I have gone through a rollercoaster of life events and emotions that have taught me so much about what TRUE HEALTH and SANITY really are!! I used to just get my workout in, eat mostly whole food, plant based, and just hope for the best.  I…

It’s Time

It’s been a year. More than a year since I have been comfortable having an online presence.  Let me tell you why. Ok but first, let me pre-empt this post by explaining that I am healing from a mild concussion.  How did I get this you ask? Well, we are EXHAUSTED really tired parents dealing with an 18…

Extrovert Meets Introvert

So… we’ve been married for 10 years.  We made it 10 years, yet in MANY MANY ways, it feels like we have only scratched the surface on what it really MEANS to be married to someone. When a ton of my friends are getting their first divorce, we are wrapping up 10 years of marriage…

Essential Oils

Ok, So I am still relatively new to the world of Essential Oils.  I have only recently come from the thinking that they were just smell good fluff or snake oils.  I had no idea they actually improved anything. Until…. I broke my foot. I broke my foot, y’all. I was coming down the stairs…

I’ve homeschooled, sent kids to public school, been in therapy, more than once… I’ve been vegan, vegetarian, I’ve eaten ‘cancer’ food and healthy food. I’ve had periods of intense emotional stress, and periods of clarity where I…

Welcome To The World Baby Jack! Baby Number 6! 

I guess it’s only appropriate to start at the beginning. Not the moment my water broke, but the beginning of how you entered the outside world and started becoming a part of our family.  I’ve known you were ready for our family since I was pregnant with your older brother. I saw you two in…

HELP WANTED

HELP WANTED! I am a total MESS when it comes to hearing the stories of others that are in the same shoes I USED to be in.  Depressed, unhappy with my body, tired, in PAIN… The list goes ON!!! I was 24 (On the left), a total wreck, and I could barely keep up with…
