to my cozy little home on the web, filled with every bit of encouragement, love, hope, beautiful things and whatever I think you might enjoy. I know that most things can be fixed with one or all of the these…a hug, a snack, or a nap…so if you need any of those let me know and I’ll post some! Ha ha ha! Here for you as a sister, friend, aunt or mom, whatever it is that you need, I'll happily stand in that spot. I hope you find more than you are looking for, leaving inspired and recharged to tackle life at your best.

All the best of everything I can think of,



We all get “up-close and personal” accounts of others and their success on social media. It’s nearly overwhelming, we get SO much information and images on a single scroll that it’s easy to log off feeling worse than before. Sometimes we feel so overwhelmed that we don’t even want to try to live our own […]

If you are anything like me, it seems like it will be beeline to our destiny in this life–meaning a straight shot, from point A to point B, and VIOLA! You should arrive safely and quickly at your dream life. Ha! It’s more like 17 switchbacks, a few puddle jumps, Everest, and 3 high dives […]

I live in a area that doesn’t exactly have seasons, it’s always balmy and 72 here at the beach. And this is wonderful except that I love a cozy snow day filled with cookies baking in a warm oven. And the anticipation of all the Fall holidays when the leaves turn and sprinkle the lawns […]

We started with the show on Netflix, and then got the book…Marie Kondo has officially changed our lives. Ha ha ha! We are tidying up everything and it actually feels SO good! It’s surprising how much trash we had, 3 bags of expired boxes, sauces, spices, soup and canned beans for one. Or the clothes […]

This is THE best detox bath. It’s an incredible tool in your health tool box when you have a chronic illness like Lyme Disease, and it’s also incredible for the whole family (including kids) when anyone is starting to get sick (colds, flu, etc.). It stops infections quickly and relieves PAIN–all while detoxifying the body. […]

I’ve tried a lot of chili recipes and this one is my family’s favorite…plus you can throw it all in the Crockpot to cook…it’s like dinner magic. Aaaand you feel just about as close as you can to superwoman (or man) when all you have to do is dole out the chili into bowls and […]

The life we live today is so very riddled with pressure, completely unattainable levels of perfection, and rules/laws/fees/taxes/fines/penalties that others have created–it’s a miracle we all get back up in the morning. Not to mention all the classes, clubs, extracurricular activities that our children do…that WE do, with driving, prepping, dress rehearsals, extra practices, tutoring […]
