  • Blessings for the New Year

    In the past, I have mentioned that New Year’s Resolutions aren’t really my thing. I prefer to live in the present. It’s a positive act to set the intention and there is much to benefit from such achievements. However, I often view resolutions as ideas that someone sees as a far-off and perhaps even unattainable long-term goal. Set those intentions, but live in the present at the same time. Make changes today, even if they seem small. Continue Reading

  • Intuitive Harvesting

    To step out into the garden any time of the year promotes a feeling of tranquility and wonder. While I am in the garden harvesting, the plants seem to call out and offer their assistance.

So this is where hair gel is sometimes a necessity. Over the years I have purchased “natural” hair gels, ones that contain less toxic and minimal ingredients. However, they often seemed to be lacking in performance. This would result in resorting back to the store-bought products. Continue Reading

  • Twenty-one Things About Me

    This is my hundredth post on my blog. A bit of a milestone for me. I wanted to do something a little more out of the ordinary to honor this occasion. It was with the encouragement of a few loved ones that I decided to write a “things you probably didn’t know about me” post. Honestly, at first, I was uncomfortable with the idea-  having to talk about myself. Wondering who would actually want to read it. Then I realized that reading this type of post is my most favorite read from my fellow bloggers. Continue Reading
