How I’ve Simplified Using My Three Rules For Gifting

I’ve done it before, and I’m sure you have too. Bought things and then spent time regretting the increase of STUFF and MESS. It never brought us more joy and it certainly didn’t bring us more peace, so why did I do it? Several years ago, I clued in that for my daughter GETTING something was more important to her than HAVING it. In the store, she loved having something bought for her and then promptly forgot all about it once home.…

How To Survive A Rainy Day With Your Child – Guest Post

How to Survive a Rainy Day with your Child by Jeana Kinne Rainy Days are often very long and eventful in an enclosed area full of rambunctious preschool aged and toddler aged children.  The fact that you can’t go outdoors and are inside for many, many, many hours during the day can wear down any adult. Both at home and at school, children are awake and ready, as ever, to play! All of the research and information available that tells…

There Is No Such Thing As Balance

Balance.  The ultimate quest. The one thing we all seem to be in pursuit of. And something that’s been on my mind often, moreso since going back to work just over 5 years ago. Finding balance between the need to do things and the want to do things, and how I actually view the things in my life in terms of these two categories. For the past few years specifically, I’ve considered each opportunity with one specific phrase, What Do…

Wounded Healer ~ Finding My Passion As A Massage Therapist

I don’t get asked very often why I do what I do. People see it when they come to see me, they feel it. Not everyone can see themselves as a massage therapist and truth be told, 3+ years ago, I couldn’t either. I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2014 and it rocked my world. I began to view health in a completely different way and found myself going more for more of a holistic route in healing. UC…

Well That Was HAWKward ~ My First Brazilian Experience

The truth is, nobody talks about these things. The other truth is, this story is too good NOT to share. And because I tend to not have a filter in real life and in an effort to make this blog as true to me as possible, I’ve decided to adopt the same approach. {Almost} no filter. So here’s the deal: Getting a Brazilian wax is something I thought I would NEVER do. Bare is really not my jam. But for…

Ten Things You Shouldn’t Say To Your Vegan Spouse

I want a divorce. Unless this is an extreme case of bad timing, you probably shouldn’t threaten divorce with someone just wanting to change their eating habits. If the fact that they are going to be eating a plant based diet is that scary to you, perhaps they aren’t the issue 😉 Does this mean you are going to be a hippy tree hugger now? For years vegans were thought of as hemp loving hippies and while that may have…

Herbalife Collagen Beauty Booster: One Week Results

I think most people have a trouble zone, an area that just isn’t quite where they’d like it. For me, it’s my MumTum – and although I know it could be worse and that it’s grown my babies, I hate it. And I’m allowed to. No apologies. It grew my perfect babies who I love and wouldn’t trade, but dammit….I’d still like to improve what I’m left with. You can see exactly where I grew them and where my son…
