Do you ever look back on life and know that certain things happened for a certain reason? Like the path that you took was meant to be and guided by outside forces you have no knowledge of? Sometimes I like to think about these moments and consider how different my life would be without them. But it always ends the same – I wouldn't change a thing. The decisions I've made have always let me exactly where I need to go. Faced with the uncertainty of the future this is a small comfort. This doesn't mean that my life has been without struggle… Because I've had my fair share. But these moments driven by fate have brought some of the most important people in my life to me. It's easy to look back and wish you had done something differently. To wish you hadn't taken the long road and instead had chosen the appropriate shortcuts to get where you needed to go. But it's this meandering path that led me to places and people I could never ever regret.Read More
In honor of spring and the warmer temperatures here in Maryland, I wanted to do an essential oil post highlighting some awesome floral oils. Let’s be honest here - we all know about lavender and it’s versatile benefits. Everyone can use (and probably has used) lavender in some element of their life. It’s wonderfully relaxing and gentle enough to use for nearly any purpose without any adverse reaction - the swiss knife of essential oils! I mean...of course we all love lavender but I’m here to advocate for some other flowers!Read More
I wanted to talk a little bit about how I got started with essential oils and with Young Living! I think that backstory is important--who is this girl talking about oils? Why should I listen to her?...she wears rainboots when it isn't even raining! (that's totally true)
My introduction to essential oils started halfway around the world a little over two years ago.Read More

We had our biggest snow of the year here in Maryland on Tuesday...a whole 3 inches!!! Stella was supposed to bring us 8-12 inches, so her follow through was not the best. However, 3 inches or 12 inches, it was still Chester's first snow, so of course that had to be documented.Read More

As both Meagan and I consider ourselves feminists, this was not a day we could let pass us by without saying anything. Here's too all the strong amazing women in our lives - we couldn't do it without you.
This post might just be another rambling mess of words that come straight from my brain (and my heart). I'm currently watching This Is Us (all the emotions), knowing I'm a little behind on my blogging schedule and staring at a post I've been working on for days. It needs a lot of work. Graphics. Descriptions. It's a post that deserves a lot of my attention and this week...I can't give it a lot of my attention. So it's going to get some more time because it deserves that time.Read More
What's up, party people?!
I'm elated to be here and have this space to share all the things that I (& Kerra!) love. I've been sitting here most of the day trying to figure out how to start my very first blog post, and I still don't know what the best way to start is. So let's just jump right in, shall we?Read More
