Angelica Essential Oil

I am having way to much fun with my Young Living Oils, hence the lack of posts here #SorryNotSorry I have been so busy sharing the oil love in real life I haven’t had as much time as I hoped to dedicate here. I do hope to rectify that over time and get back into […]

2015 Word of the Year: LISTEN

listen 2

I love picking one word to focus on each year. It is easier to stay tuned into your goals when you only have one thing you are trying to focus on. Last year I picked purpose and I think I did a pretty good job staying on track. I wasn’t perfect, but I know in […]

Finding Your Passion


(source) I’ve had many discussions lately, with myself and others, about passion.  I used to get annoyed when my Facebook newsfeed was filled with the same thing every day. I wanted to ask my friends if they did anything else. All they seemed to talk about was the same thing over and over again. Doesn’t […]

Losing the Leftovers

Young Living Cleanse

I felt like “leftovers” was an appropriate post title for so many reasons. For one, we are all still dealing with a massive amount of leftovers from Thanksgiving. We didn’t even host Thanksgiving and our fridge is stuffed with them. Then, personally I am dealing with my own personal leftovers from my daughter Leah. I […]

I Like Giving by Brad Formsma

This month’s idea of “giving” big or small started back when I read the book “I Like Giving”. This book is truly inspirational. The tagline is “practical ideas, inspiring stories”. Giving doesn’t have to be this BIG thing that we do. Giving can be small. Giving can be something as simple as your time. Simply […]

Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon Essential Oil

I’m kind of mad at myself that it took me so long to jump on this awesome oil train. I have only been a member for a month and I can already see so many changes in myself and my family. One of my favorite oils right now is the lemon essential oil. There are […]

November. Can you believe it? November already! This is the beginning of the season. It is about to be a tornado of family, food, and fun up in here. You are also about to have your Facebook feeds flooded with 30 days of thankfulness. Day one will the obligatory “family” post. We are always so […]

5 Tips for Taking the Perfect Selfie


I honestly can not believe I am writing this post. I mean, who really cares if you take a good selfie or not, right? What does it really matter?  It doesn’t.  Selfies can be narcissistic (ahem, Kim K.), but they can also be fun! They are a way to express your personality or your artistry. […]

One Dresser, Two Ways

sauder 03

We are having such a fun fall so far. I am really enjoying my little sabbatical from work. Probably a little too much. I get to spend every day with these two adorable munchkins. I mean, really. Does it get any cuter? I did have these huge expectations for maternity leave. I had plans of […]

Felt-O-Ween by Kathy Sheldon

felt o ween 01

Halloween. I’m not really a fan. I have to admit. Walking around in the dark, knocking on strangers doors, and people passing by wearing scaring masks. I can do without all of that in my life. Let’s not even discuss possible clown sightings. If it wasn’t for the mom guilt I would feel if I […]
