Hello everyone and thank you so much for stopping by! I started this blog to share my love for the simple joys in life, fresh cooking, and natural living. I have an obsession with essential oils and yoga. I love my dog and will talk about him endlessly to anyone that will listen. I try not to take life too seriously and embrace the natural beauty that is all around us. Some people think I am overly happy and cheerful; I think life is too short to waste on bad moods. I try to find the good in every person I come across (even if it is not always easy). Gardening has been a life long love. Even though I sometimes struggle to get the perfect crop, I love the process. One of my greatest pleasures is cooking a delicious meal straight from the garden and enjoying it with my hubby and a glass of wine. I love to shop local and support my hometown. I am working towards living more naturally every day, but I am by no means perfect. I do indulge in the occasional potato chip or milk shake. Sugar hasn’t totally been banned from my house, but I use it very sparingly. I try to find a balance and go from there. I think anyone can live a more natural lifestyle and you don’t have to go all in if you don’t want to. Small steps make a huge difference. I hope you will join me for the ride and share in the conversation.
