Thank you, thank you, thank you! I wouldn’t be here without you. I can’t even believe it’s been a year. Let’s celebrate and do some giveaways!!
I can still remember the day. I chose the first day of spring to launch, because A. I needed a date or I would have let fear win and never pulled the trigger and B. spring signifies new beginnings and this was a scary new step for me.
I wrote my first post, hit the publish button, then FREAKED OUT! What if no one read it? What if no one cared? What would my friends and family think? Ugh. So much wasted time worrying about what other people think.
Fast forward a year later and I still catch myself wondering what people will think and wondering if I’m truly helping people. Then I let that go and trust that this is exactly where I’m supposed to be right now and I don’t serve anyone by playing small.
Here’s what I know right now:
-No matter what comes of this, it is my passion to help people live their best lives and if I’ve helped just one person then it’s been worth it.
-I have stretched myself in ways I really didn’t want to stretch and I’m stronger, more flexible, and more confident because of it.
-I have learned to enjoy the process, put all my heart in, and let go of the outcome.
-I have learned to be okay with saying no. (Soooo hard for a people pleaser.)
-I have learned not to cringe when watching myself on camera (Is that really my voice?) and know that everyone started somewhere. To be scared and do it anyway.
-No matter what happens, I am showing my boys to follow their dreams, dream big, never stop growing and learning, just take the first step!, and most of all, to love themselves.
Now, let’s get on to the important part…..celebrating you. You are the reason I sit at my computer instead of shopping, or having a glass of wine at noon.
I remember ten years ago wishing I had a community of people who were interested in clean living. I was a tired new mom who just needed some easy recipes, a little cheering on, and a little humor. I had just started to learn about what’s really in our food and I wanted to know everything. I wanted to talk to people who cared. (It took me awhile to accept this, but some people just don’t care.)
I created this community for you. Because you’re doing your very best. You love your family and you want the best for them. For that, I am celebrating you.
And that is why I am giving away some of my favorite things. (watch out Oprah!)
Here’s what we are giving away:

RMO has been my go-to for essential oils for years. I love that they are transparent. All of their oils are grown with pure, natural and organic practices, and they now have a line of USDA certified organic oils. They will show you the testing certificate for any oil you have purchased, they have a 90 day return policy, free shipping on all U.S. orders, and excellent customer service.
Betsy’s Best Almond Butter and Peanut Butter, value $27.98 each, 2 winners
I recently discovered Betsy’s Best nut butters and they are my new favorite dessert and snack. Sometimes I have a scoop with some apple slices, sometimes I just have a scoop! They are non-gmo and fabulous.
I have been using their products for years. Besides being fabulous, their products are: organic and wildcrafted (from the wild), real, pure unadulterated, cruelty-free, have a commitment to truth in labeling, non-gmo, and made safe certified. They also focus on giving back. Not only do their products smell absolutely amazing, they REALLY work.
