Getting ready for Christmas at our house has included: – Setting up a little Christmas corner for the kids. They get chocolates each day of December (I’ve given up on trying to do an activity each day or explain the message of Christmas using this format) and they cross off how many days are left til… Read More
This week we’re at home recovering from colds that have been hanging on for the past few weeks. Tis the season, hey? I’ve been using my YL oils, especially diffusing thieves and putting it on all the feet in the house, but to be honest, I haven’t noticed a huge difference yet. I feel a… Read More

I still love you), shopping, wrapping, card writing, partying, eating. Ya, it’s a lot. And on top of all of the stuff that needs to get done,… Read More
