Kick Off To Christmas!

As the first weekend in December comes to and end my heart is beyond full, my body beyond tired and my mind a little foggy, all signs of a great start to the holiday season. We really have come to a point in our lives where our family are our friends and our friends are …

Girls Night In

“Choices, life is all about choices” is a common phrase you can often hear my mom saying.  She does make a good point, some choices are simple and have relatively little impact on our life, like what colour socks you wear, it’s a choice with no real life long effects, others are more influential and …

Christmas Market at The Farm

I am so excited to be spear heading a Christmas Market at my good friends family farm Emma Lea! It all started as a relatively simple plan, lets try and host a little market as a way to share our oils with friends and family.  I was unaware of how easily this “little” market would …

You Only Have 1 Life, hope your LIVING it!

Have you ever felt like who am I to deserve all this?  Even this week, a week with lots of ups and downs in our house, sitting here looking back on it I feel like we are so lucky and wonder what did I do to deserve this?  I have worked so hard to create …

Give Thanks

Holidays have always been big in my family, my mom made sure to celebrate each and every holiday.  Whether it was homemade cards, special food or new outfits and gifts... often it was all of that!  What made it even more special was that we always had a big family that lived close so we …

MIA- Busy playing and resting!

Sorry I have been Missing in Action the last week or so of September and it kinda feels like I can’t quite catch up.  Catch up to what though??? These past couple of days have been one of some strange things, for me personally but also for the world.  We have had a lot of …

I Promise …

Today marks Auntie Mona's 53rd Birthday, and September 15th marked the 6th Anniversary of the day she passed away.  Now my Aunt was more than an Aunt to myself and my two sisters.  She was my Moms only sister and she was our second Mom. We grew up with a single Mom who worked full …

Beginning of a new Decade…

First I need to say HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY to my youngest sister KP!  Now I couldn't think of a better way to wish her Happy Birthday than to write about it on the blog, my sister may not agree but I hope she likes it (better to beg forgiveness than to ask for permission)!   …

In My Spare Time

 I sometimes think about when I had time and read a lot, I especially think about it when I am packing for vacation.  Pre-kids I couldn't pack enough books.  I loved to just sit in the sun, relax and read.  I now know that with 3 very little ones reading is a luxury and …

Be Curious and Judge Less.

I was talking to my girlfriend the other day on the phone and she casually mentions that her husband had given a compliment about me and she totally forgot to share... Obviously I was curious and almost brought to tears when she tells me he said that he loves how he feels can totally be …
