So this past month I’ve been pretty quiet for a few reasons. First – my blog was down for nearly two weeks. Don’t ask me why, I know but I’m certainly not going to be able to explain it because I don’t know that well. I just know that it was down.
Second, I’ve been dealing with a cranky, fussy Charlotte. I think it’s teething but again – I don’t really know that either. (see the theme here?) Bella didn’t get teeth until she was a year old and then four at once without an issue. She never drooled, no hands in the mouth – so this is all unusual to me.
The past two days have been mainly us two being sick. Just colds – with her it might be teething as there is so much drool and hands in the mouth. Sam took Bella to the store so he can make chicken noodle soup tonight. I’m making lunch and this is the only way she’ll sleep. Always thankful for baby wearing on these days especially.
Third. Oh third. I’ve started a new venture. It’s been a year in the works but it’s finally up and ready. Last year I became a member of Young Living Oils. Now WAIT – before you roll your eyes and think, “Oh my gosh, noooooo…” because we all know that dear person who can’t post anything without an oil reference, hear me out.
I was a skeptic. I thought it was stupid. And when I joined, I had no idea what I was doing or how anything would make a difference. And then shortly after, I found out I was pregnant with Charlotte. Then I realized I couldn’t take any meds because of what happened with Kaden. So I used oils after first tri. Sparingly, researching what I could about things I could use when I was sick, or exhausted, or my head was pounding, or I seriously couldn’t bear to smell any food ever.
I’m not saying oils worked magic. But I made it to full term with a healthy baby for the first time, with hyperemesis again – after four pregnancies. I know this was due to a combination of things but part of that combo was no meds + using oils.

During the past few months, my friends Nicole from Mommy Moxie and Tamar at Ode to Story joined up to start a blog and social media where we could write and create a place for the more holistic side of our lives. We’ve worked really hard to make a space that reflects our hearts and talents.
We’re launching with a giveaway, a blog, and a peek into our days on Instagram (today is my day!). Tonight Tamar will be showing you what happens when you order a starter kit – what oils are in it, how to figure everything out. Tune in for her unboxing on Periscope at 7:30pm PST @TAMARMEKREDIJIAN.
I’m so very excited to share this part of my life with you all. We’ll be blogging over there as well as sharing videos and our favorite products that make life a little healthier.
Lastly – if you are reading this and wanting to jump in, we have a promotion going on for our oils kit this month. You get everything featured below with your choice of diffuser (the DewDrop is pictured), 10% off the kit, plus we will pay your shipping and taxes up to $20.

That makes me feel super old you guys. I try to remind myself that’s what happens when you get married at 19. You get super old super fast.
Life is a little crazy but right now it’s really, really good.
P.S. Don’t forget to join us on Periscope tonight to see what an essential oil starter kit looks like! xo
