A Land of Permanent Goodbyes~ REVIEW

A Land of Permanent Goodbyes by Atia Abawi
I'm one of those people that avoids the news.  I know war, pain and crime is out there but I choose what I watch and read carefully because it hurts.  It hurts to see what lies outside our four walls....but, it's important for me to honor the victims by not ignoring what I know is out there.  That said this next Book Review from Penguin Random House is called A Land of Permanent Goodbyes.  I almost didn't read it because I was afraid of the emotions that might come up for me.  But, then that was also the reason why I did decided to read it and I am relieved with my decision.  This book was heart squeezing, several times I realized I was holding my breath while reading.  It will be one of the most influential books I have ever read...it truly touched me and has opened my heart and my eyes to a situation that I had closed myself off from.

Essential Oils with Me

Well, it's very Simple... I will be updating this part of my Blog as often as possible.  I NEVER talked much about oils, even though we have been using them for 4 years now.  I didn't want to get into the "sales" part of it.  But, my Family and I have benefited so much I just feel now is the time.  I can't continue to enjoy the benefits without sharing with all of you so that you too can feel the difference in your lives without always reaching for a pill.

I have used a few different brands and right now I am committed and benefiting wildly from DoTerra's Essential Oils.  Feel free to hop over to my Wellness Advocate page and look at all the Plant Magic they have to offer your sweet Family!!

Walking Along the Spectrum

Opening up about Special Needs Parenting is hard to do, but I need to be true to myself and my family.  So, I will be opening up more and more in the hopes that it will benefit some of you.  At least lessen some of the guilt that I know we carry....we are not alone in this.  READ MORE.....


Princess Pulverizer~ Blog Tour

I have a super fun book that Kaden couldn't put down to tell you about this week....it's called PRINCESS PULVERIZER #1 GRILLED CHEESE AND DRAGONS.  Personally I think it was the pulverizer part that pulled him in and the fact that it allowed him to play around in the kitchen and make some grilled cheese sandwiches sealed the deal.


Welcome 2018

I probably started writing 8 different times this past month, but I honestly was just trying to enjoy the Christmas Holiday and all that goes with it before and after.  And soooo much has happened, lot's of good stuff and I honestly feel refreshed and ready to tackle 2018.  I am going to pretty busy around here, but I can promise you one thing for sure....I will be choosy as to what occupies my time.  Time is so limited, I have lot's of things in the works like a book, a possible move, we are looking at finally opening our online shop to sell our soaps, candles and tincture/oily goodness.  Not to mention my painting....I have a possible adventure with it that has to do with affirmations/devotional cards featuring some of my artwork.  So, yeah...that's just me.  Mahala is graduating in just a few short months and helping me launch Four Violet amongst her craziness as she figures out where and if she will go on to college.  Kaden is growing leaps and bounds.  He has truly been working hard regarding his self control.  We are all working on a healthier diet and lifestyle, limiting certain things and using only herbal remedies for just about everything you can imagine.  So, yeah...pretty crazy around here.  But, I love it!  I'll be posting a recap of our Holiday in just a few days, but I missed you all, I missed writing and reviewing....so, it's a New Year and I'm ready for it, what about you?????
