Wild garlic, isn't she beautiful? How do you use it? We've added it to nettle pesto and steamed it with rice so far. Any more ideas? #foragedfood #forageforfood #wildgarlic #natural #intothewild #rewilding #simplejoys #thisthingcalledslowliving

Each time brings new worries and concerns.

How am I supposed​ to take care of more than one kid at a time?
Everyone is telling me things, but they just don't feel right to me...
And on, and on.
I want you to know, I hear you. I got you. And you've got this!

We had a fun weekend with keeks in town! Now we are getting back into the routine and catching up... this sweet boy grabbed his binks and wubby (his blanket) and climbed in his bed. I think he's ready for nap time 😴 #radlittlerowen

Dreams do come true. 👟
This is where it all began.  I found Robin Long and The Balanced Life (@thebalancedlife) soon after my daughter was born.  Robin had written this beautiful post about her newly born son who was about the same age as my little one.  I was immediately drawn to her outlook on life.  One of her main beliefs is “grace over guilt.” Man, do we mamas need to embrace this one.  How much guilt do you experience in a day?  The house isn’t clean enough.  The laundry isn’t done.  I didn’t play with my kid(s) enough.  I shouldn’t be eating this.  I should be working out.  We moms are so hard on ourselves!! Instead of beating yourself up, give yourself some grace.  When we choose to feel guilty, it only leads to a negative thought cycle.  You feel bad, and the bad choices continue.  If your best friend did the same thing you’re beating yourself up over, what would you say to her?  It would probably be something like, “Don’t worry about it!” “It’s no big deal.” or “You’ll do better next time.” Grace.  Treat yourself the way you would treat your best friend.  Let yourself off the hook.  If you want to indulge in a DQ oreo blizzard, do it.  And enjoy it.  Every minute of it. And then get back to your healthy eating tomorrow.  Not healthy eating because you have to “undo” that blizzard or because it’s what you “should” be eating, but healthy eating because you feel better when you’re eating healthy and it’s what your body deserves.  When you give yourself some grace every once in a while, you break the negative cycle.  You can just enjoy your life without feeling bad about it.  And guess what?  When we feel better, we do better.  Indulge and move on.  Figure out what your goals are (eat clean, be a present mom/wife/friend, etc.) and make sure your actions line up with those goals most of the time.  Then, every now and then, when you decide it’s worth it, have your cake.  And eat it too. (Photo credit @thebalancedlife)

The spot on a Luna moth wing. My new 10$ toy came in the mail and it was worth every penny! I got a macro lens for my phone and it's so cool. I apologize in advance for all the photos coming your way.

Be still and know I am God. Psalm 46:10.  It really is amazing to just see God and His amazing power and creativity in little things like the budding flowers and birds making their nests.  Whenever I feel God is far away it helps me to stop and see His majesty in little things.  If He cares for them He surely cares for me--and you! 🦋 🐦 🌺 🏃🏻‍♀️🙏🏼#theemptiedheart #psalm4610 #littlethingsarebigthings #joyofthelordismystrength #sexabusesurvivors #recovery #livinginthemoment #birthing #imakeallthingsnew #hope #majesty #bible #godlover #birdsnests #simplejoys #butterflies

Valor is BACK you guys.

For reals. And I'm rejoicing like the rest of YL addicts everywhere 🙋😍😍🙌🎉🎊🎉🎊 A lot of you have NO clue why millions of people across the US are rejoicing over a unicorn bottle of oil right now, so here's the scoop..... About 3 years ago, Young Living was growing about 4-6% per year. The company could control the amount of trees and plants that were being planted and they could plan ahead.

But then the company started growing really quickly and the company couldn't keep up with the 150% growth per year.

The mom and pop partner farm we used to get black spruce from couldn't keep up with the demand. 
Young Living decided to go on the search for black spruce and found a large enough amount that it would have put Valor back on the shelves. But when tested, the oil came back within the "good" limits but it wasn't "excellent". So Young Living passed on it and continued to search until they decided they would rather spend millions of dollars to buy a huge acreage of black spruce up in Northern Canada. They built a distillery and then a water filtration system to ensure the water for distilling was pure.

Then, blue tansy had a bad season and Valor was put on hold again.

Rosewood was then found to be close to becoming an endangered species so the search started for an oil that would be sustainable but also have the same qualities as rosewood. Young Living finally found a farm to partner with that is giving us camphor wood oil.

And now, it's back! (BIG sigh of relief)

Young Living has lost approximately $100,000,000 (no, my zero key is not sticky) by not having Valor available for sale. But #youngliving never compromises quality, purity or sustainability to make a buck. They would rather be out of stock than have subpar products for their members.

That's my kind of company! So here we are, almost two years later and the oil that gives people the strength, confidence, courage, quiet nights of sleep, and supports the body's ability to align itself is now back. For many, this oil is the difference between being alive and LIVING.
