I’m “just” a mom…

Ah, the time of year is upon us. It’s time for the homeschooling moms to make any last minute changes, curriculum purchases, or plans created for the coming terms. This year instead of the normal 2-semesters/4-quarters I am going full on Charlotte Mason and making this a 3-term year. At this year’s homeschool convention I […]

Thank you

Last week I celebrated my 35th birthday. I had one of the greatest birthdays I can remember. My family, my husband and his parents made the ordinary Friday into an extraordinary day for me. It was a joy seeing my little boys having fun in the pool and on the water slides at Oceans of […]

Living Loudly

Who knew I could feel so happy and alive inside and my body could feel so tired and pained at the same time? It comes with the territory. Let me ‘splain… A few years ago I found out that I had cancer in my thyroid. Barely thirty years old and three young boys to raise, […]

One Another

When we feel loved we are better equipped to love as well. There has never been a more desperate need for women to shine. Women, mothers, survivors. Instead we sometimes suppress the truth, hiding our light instead of shining. Or worse, we snuff out the light in others to make ourselves appear brighter. It is […]

Happy Love Day!

Pretty big fan of Valentine’s Day here. As a kid I loved the parties at school. This was before the days of mandatory Valentines. Which I happen to be super fond of since my boy has special needs. He is in a remedial class with kids younger (and sometimes meaner) than him. It was nice […]

Oily Words

I began studying the craft of Aromatherapy when was suffering through several emotional and physical ailments last year. A friend of mine, who happened to be trained in a medical field, introduced them to me. Her previous work skills (she is currently a stay at home mom, but stays up to date on her medical certification) […]

Curriculum All Day

A peek behind the curriculum curtain… My main planner… the most used book in my daily book bag. It not only has room for lessons, but meal plans, book list, monthly budget planning and field trip and activity planning. It’s a homeschool planner, but it’s also a life-planner… The Well Planned Day by Home Educating […]

Aromatherapy 101, 102, and 103!

A natural health magazine I read religiously published an article having to do with eo’s. The writer was not a trained holistic health professional, let alone an aromatherapist. Which is normally fine, if sharing a personal testimony or excitement over the discovery of these amazing little bottles of gold. But this person was giving advice […]
