Hello and Goodbye to the Last 15 Months!

Why hello there strangers!

I know.. I know.. Where in the world have I been? Let's see where I can begin on updating you all on the past year. I guess I can break it down to the top five moments for my family and I:

5. We have welcomed many new people into our family. From our sibling's weddings to new babies, the family is rapidly growing!

4. We took the plunge and decided that we would 'officially' homeschool the boys.  It has been so much fun!  Parker will be starting 'kindergarten' this fall and Preston and Spencer will be continuing with their pre-school 'curriculum' while Charlie adorably drools in his highchair.

3. I started sharing my passion for essential oils with others.  What started as something that I used on myself and my kids when we were sick, has turned into something amazing and gratifying.  I have made new friends, learned more about something that I already loved and have helped more people start their journey to a healthier lifestyle than I could have ever imagined.

2. We moved into our new home on May 12th, 2012.  I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful it is to have us all under one roof again!

1.  The birth of Charlie! We welcomed our 'not-so-little' bundle on December 15th, 2013 after a wonderful labor and delivery.  Strange to hear someone say that, huh?  I will have to share his birth story soon.

I know you all have missed my family and I dearly (insert eye roll and sarcastic laugh here) and I cannot wait to be back to blogging and filling you all in on the crazy antics of my family and I!

New Address... New Adventures

As many of you know, my family and I moved last summer. It was an awesome opportunity for our family and I couldn't be more thrilled to have us all under one roof again! This momma will come back to reminisce about the past 13 months a little later, but for right now I am here to talk about the newest adventure that my little family and I are on...

I have been using Young Living Essential Oils for years. They have helped my family continue our more natural lifestyle adjustment and the oils and products have fit into our life like the missing puzzle piece. Since I love the oils so much, it was hard to contain my love and passion for them. The more I learned, the more people listened. Since then I have began to share my passion regularly and it has been so rewarding to hear how Young Living has positively changed the homes of many of my friends and family members.

With all of these new adjustments of being a homeschooling, blogging, work from mom home, I wanted you all to join me as I work my hardest to find the balance that my family and I so desperately deserve.

Thanks for checking my page out, or returning if you're one of my past followers!
