What does the word exercise conjure up in your body and emotions?  What feeling are expressed in your body when you think about exercising? What does the word movement bring to your mind and body?  What feelings arise when you think about moving?

Our relationship and associations with the words and action will impact our success!  Energy doesn’t lie…

Welcome to March Healthy Habits—The Movement month!  

As a child, I was what they call, sickly.  My body didn’t seem to work as a whole and the random parts did their thing relatively disconnected to the other parts.  Therefore I found my happy place in books and my big imagination. I ignored my body as best as I could and tried to make a life without it entering TOO much into the equation.  Needless to say, this didn’t go very well. The older I got, the more my body complained about its neglect and needs… At nearly 48, I am SO much happier and healthier and energetic than I was in my teens, twenties or even my thirties….

Stuck in a Rut....No More!

Ask yourself, and be honest: when was the LAST time you did something JUST BECAUSE?  I realized that even playing games with my kids, though I thoroughly enjoy it, is something I value because it’s good for the family and our relationships.  There is a purpose to it greater than myself. My business with essential oils is something I absolutely LOVE and so I enjoy that work. But it’s still about more than just me having fun.  


This week, snowed in, I realized that there is very little in my life that I do simply because I love it and it brings me joy ALONE.  If you are a mom of littles, I’m pretty sure you get that. We can be stretched pretty thin during that season of life.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes--What’s your relationship with Change?

What comes up when you hear the word, change?  Do you believe “the more things change the more they stay the same?”  Do you dread change? Fear it? Fight it? Want it? Try to make it happen only to experience more of the same in your life? Let’s face it, as inevitable as change is, it can come with a lot of baggage.  This month as we dive into the theme of BREATHING and AWARENESS, let’s consider how we roll with change…

Just Press Pause

The Fall is a busy season of harvest and preparation for the winter. Of back to school and holidays and sweaters and transitions. Sometimes we feel depleted, yet can’t press the pause button on Life to rest.  That can feel frustrating! If this is you, I invite you to consider some new thoughts around that.

Welcome Home

Home is where your heart is, I've always said. Mark and I have been gypsy nomads for the past 18 years with the longest stint being 6 years in Washington back in 2008. When we moved back to Duvall last year, I had hoped to be settled. While we felt like we would stay, we did not feel settled in at all, even though we were renting a beautiful property. Last week we moved into our new home in Duvall. Having lived here just one week, I feel more settled and at HOME than I have in the past 5 years.

Joy in the Journey

Journeys can be tough, painful, disappointing, and exhausting, even scary at times. But then, (imagine you are traversing up a mountain), you get these vistas that just take your breath away. So much beauty! Such a bigger, more beautiful view that you ever could have imagined, and you know the Journey is worth it! Ahead there will be more scary, hard times; more pain, and twists and turns that you just can’t see around; but pressing on and through, TOGETHER, we know there will be more of the beautiful moments that make it all worthwhile.

Aromatouch Soothed

“To touch can be to give life,” said Michelangelo. Midnight, my niece and her boyfriend arrive at the hospital. Her father had just passed away. The three of us stood there awkwardly waiting until the rest of the family arrived. No words were adequate. I offered a hug and we waited.
