who the heck is allergic to ducks?!?

As y'all know, I've been fighting my autoimmune diseases for several years while getting more and more sick. I've also developed multiple food intolerances and many GI issues recently - which is not at all uncommon as I have celiac disease as well. I knew I was allergic to eggs but have been reacting to…

roadtrippin’

This past Saturday, my husband's Father's Day trip to Atlanta to see the Braves play came around. We were super excited. It was also to be my first BIG outing in my smartchair. Since it arrived, I had only taken it out on some short trips to Target and such. As life sometimes happens, some…

500 days

I hardly ever think to check my clean day app but remembered to check it yesterday - and it must have been a God thing as it was 500 days to the day since I've stopped drinking. I am deeply grateful for this and for the community of amazing women I've found as well. I…

Merry Christmas!

I've always liked Christmas a lot - but, until I met my husband, I think I honestly would have told you Halloween was my favorite holiday (and I still do love it!). However, with our first family Christmas as a couple, we had a wonderful family Thanksgiving at the lake all together with Mom, Pop,…

Why I Am Done With Young Living

graduation and gratitude

I'm hoping this post makes even a little bit of sense because I'm writing as I'm getting ready for our first event this morning with Sara taking her EO rollerballs and me taking all of my coaching stuff and there is so much to do. We are excited and super busy and running. This week…

the mother’s day mixed bag.

Yesterday was honestly the best Mother's Day celebration I can remember. We went to spend the day with our family at the lake and had the best time talking and laughing and enjoying each other. It was simple and wonderful and I loved it. Today has been good too. I've mostly rested - travel wipes…
