It’s National Boss’ Day, y’all and I think we should chat about it. The reality is I’m my own boss and my own secretary and my own errand runner, and on and on. 😜
🌿
And since I love any reason to celebrate, today I give it up to you, my clients, each of whom becomes my ‘boss’ in a way, my reason for being, my inspiration, and the ones who challenge me to be better at what I do.
🌿
Happy Boss’ Day to you! You’re the absolute bestest to work for! Thank you for loving me enough to let me grow! ❤️😘

I have so met so many wonderful people and see so many new, and lovely faces around here. I know today is not Friday I figured I would do another fun facts post for you all so you can get to know me a little more.
☺️
1. I was born in 1985
2. I don’t follow trends or keep up with the latest fashion. I do what I like and wear what feels comfortable! (Leggings/yoga pants y’all! Mom life!) 🤷🏻‍♀️
3. I enjoy scrapbooking! I love doing crafts. 
4. I’ve always wanted to skydive. Let’s hope I can do that one day.
5. I often quote song lyrics to describe the circumstances in my life! 😉😂
6. I am an OCD clean freak!! BUT am not an organized person or good at planning! 🤦🏻‍♀️
7. I can walk into a room and forget why! 💃🏻
8. I can also forget what I’m saying while talking—forgetting what exactly it is I’m talking about! 🙈👌🏼
9. I’m into fitness! Fit’ness tacos in my mouth! 🌮 😁🤣
10. I would like to think that money wouldn’t change me, yet when I am winning at Monopoly I am a terrible person!! 🤣😜

Thank you for being here and sticking around! Tell me about you in the comments, I’d truly love to get to know you more! Xo

The difference between school and life?
🌿
In school, you’re taught a lesson and given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.
❤️💙💛
#homeschoolingmama friends; what curriculum are you doing for your kiddos? What helps or what has worked for your kiddos? #specialneedsmoms and #homeschoolingmoms, what curriculum do you use for your kiddos? I’m new to this and it’s our first year. I have a child with Autism, and my oldest has several learning disabilities as well as ADHD, ODD, Dyslexia, reading and writing disorders as well as math, mood dysregulation disorder SPD, and anxiety. We think he may be on the spectrum. Abeka is hard for him and need to make a switch but am wanting some advice or see what you mamas do with yours and if It has worked. Thank you in advanced!! Happy weekend to you all! ❤️😘

The Beatles always knew we’d get by with a little help from our friends, right? Well, today I need a hand from you! I’m looking for some fitness advice, and I’m just sure you’ll know what to do. If you’ve got any insight into workouts specifically geared toward stress reduction please, share your wisdom in the comments below!
.
I’ll be forever indebted to you and my long-suffering husband will probably send flowers to you! Thanking you in advance, friends!

Happy Monday, friends!!
🌿
It’s been awhile for me. So much has gone on and It seems like It was one thing after another. Dealing with mental illness and all that throws at you sometimes, family struggles, two children recovering some hard diagnosis that effect their life and something they’ll have forever, it’s been rough to say the least. I will share more this week but I wanted to let you all know that I am so thankful for you all for staying here and continuing to follow me!! You all are wonderful. I’ve loved getting to know you all and look forward to catching up!
❤️
There’s really nothing easy about being an entrepreneur. There are times when I think I must have been insane to ever have chosen this life. In those moments I remind myself of the nicest thing anyone ever said about my business: “No doctor ever had any good answer as to how to manage my son’s health. Your essential oil remedies have given him the life every child deserves”.
.
It means so much to receive this kind of feedback and it’s always the thing that keeps me pressing on. And I’m here to connect with you if you have any questions I can answer.
😉

September 22 apparently was the first day of fall.
For me that means pumpkin lattes, cozy cardigans and Ugg boots everyday. Even chilly morning runs by the water and the peaceful zen of raking leaves in the backyard. I love.....what I love—call me basic, but there’s a reason these things are popular!
😉
Those late morning marine layer, and the respite from summer’s punishing heat! How a simple change in season can make me so incredibly happy. What does fall mean for you? .

I try hard as a mom.
I’m not perfect, but I try my hardest to do my best for my kids.
Some days are hard. Lately, everyday has been so extremely difficult battling my demons and mental illness. Recovery isn’t easy.
BUT I make it through and try and push through because I want them to be happy and I want them to know they are loved.

|Military life + Autism|
.
This girl is a daddy’s girl all the way. It has been so amazing their bond get closer and how well he has adapted to a new form communication with her. Love isn’t just words!❤️
😍
Military children bloom everywhere the winds carry them. They are hardy and upright. Their roots are strong, cultivated deeply in the culture of the military, planted swiftly and surely.
.
Their ready to fly in the breezes that take them to new adventures, new lands, and especially new friends. Experts say that military children are well-rounded, culturally aware, tolerant, and extremely resilient. Military children learn from an early age that home where is their hearts are. They learn that to survive means to adapt, that the door that closes,  one chapter of their life opens up to new and exciting adventures full of new friends and new experiences.
.
This is a whole new ball game with Autism for us. This girl was diagnosed {finally} in 2016 while on shore duty. Today we are, again, saying more “see you laters” than I can list so far. It’s so difficult and heart breaking for me because I cant just sit her down like I can the other 3 and have the talk. She doesn’t understand and all she wants is her “daddy back”. We are doing visuals, picture schedules are hard for this life as submarine-fast attack life is unknown at times! 🤨
BUT I do we will make it through, no matter how bad I’m struggling, no matter how hard it is and will be....We can do it.
.
So, Autism/special needs Military mama friends, if you have any tips or ideas that have worked for you....I would love to hear them!!

| I am N O T that mom |
.
I am NOT that mom who remembers to sign everything, check everything. I am NOT that mom who signs up for everything, I am NOT that mom who shows up looking perfect at every function, or even manages to make every function.
.
I am NOT that mom who keeps a spotless house and hides her tears from the kids, and also remembers to always keep a soft voice.

I am the mom who keeps getting up everyday when I don’t want to or the pain of getting up is fierce. I keep going despite the depression, anxiety, and PTSD. I still find strength to be the best mom I am capable of being. I A M that mom❤️
.
I wish people could understand that just because I’m working through my own mental health issues, (this is why I’m choosing to speak about my story, journey and educate) It DOESN’T mean I am irresponsible or an unsafe mother. I can still fully care for my children and/or any friends who may visit. Don’t judge mine or any other mothers ability to be a good and loving parent based on their health.
.
My children are my world. They have and will always be first! Obviously this is the case for a lot of us struggling....we put ourselves last. BUT we are N O T selfish for finally putting us first and seeking help. It’s not attention seeking for talking about It. This is called strength! We will overcome, and we will prove you wrong!

|| MY BRAIN IS A BROKEN TIME MACHINE ||
.
It is storytelling in the wind; pages blown back and forth. Chapter 8 giving way to Chapter 3. Familiar scenes that refuse to stay, on the left side of the book mark.
.
My brain is an archeologist.
.
It is fossils learning to breathe, and ancient buried memories breaking through the crust of the earth. It is a sticky rewind button and an escalator changing direction within.
.
My brain is a museum curator.
.
It is “n behind finger-smudged glass and memories secured in elegant, golden frames. Those nights sealed in paint on canvas...never to fade, never to fade.
.
My brain is a rogue tour guide.
.
It is monuments built over bruised skin. It is tears on Holy Ground. It is historic preservation and a gift shop. Cave paintings I keep going back to like spontaneous pilgrimage Shrine to words I never said.
.
And although the forest fire raged over me years ago, the burn of his touch long gone, I am still through the ashes and still following the scent of burning wood.

Lately, I’ve been so drawn to flowers especially sunflowers. These beautiful flowers a friend brought over to me to cheer me up.
.
I’ve been admiring them and sometimes just stare at its beauty and feel so instantly calm in the midst of my darkness.
.
It finally hit me; I’ve shared about my story in my Insta stories this past weekend about depression, anxiety, and PTSD and what I’m struggling with. It’s crippling, dark, and lonely. The pain from my trauma is so intense. It hit me, what if we keep our face to the sunshine so we can’t see our shadows? I mean, after all it’s what sunflowers do. Yes, friend, I know how hard It is. I feel It too. Keep fighting! Let’s keep fighting. I want to be like a sunflower and stand tall and find sunlight, don’t you? 😉🙏🏼
We got this!
Thank you all for you sweet words, messages and encouragement when i shared my pain and trauma and all I’m struggling with. You are all so amazing and am so glad you’re here!! ❤️

Friends!
I did something beyond my comfort zone this morning. I opened up about my trauma a bit, in hopes to educate and  inspire that is why I’m here. Being real and vulnerable. Sharing the good and messy. This is what I experience with depression, anxiety and PTSD.
.
I think it’s so important to educate and talk about this. Especially if you know someone with mental illness. So we can help them and a light in their dark!
👆🏼👆🏼Check out my stories! 👆🏼👆🏼And I’ll be posting shortly more of my story. ❤️
Thank you for all the love and encouragement friends!! So glad to have you along this journey!

I’ve been trying hard....with everything going and everything I am struggling with, I have been trying to be intentional. Not only has this been a long season for me the last few years but now it’s a challenging parenting season. And I’ve seen a lot of posts lately regarding the same feeling I have been going through as a mother. So I know I’m not alone.
.
My husband has had such major stress with his job as a submariner lately. I hate It for him but my kids and I thought that we needed a nerf war! Is your family like ours? We haven’t done this in a while so It was time!
😉
Little did he know what he was getting on his way home, but I loved seeing his face while playing with the kids and I.
.
So mamas, let’s try and let go of this guilt we have and just remember to give ourselves grace! Grace not perfection! All our kids care is that we listen to them and be with them not if our house is clean or laundry is done! You, mama, are amazing and know that you are doing your very best!
.
Have fun! Lower your expectations. Those dishes can wait! 😉

Last night I went into my closet (because the only time I can get some quiet time ;)) and rolled al of my oils on before bed. While I was laying there, I kept thinking just how much I love them and how It almost felt like I was in a spa. ☺️
My diffuser was going, Frank was on my face for that perfect glow, oils in my wrists for hormone support and then my emotional support oils on my chest and shoulders. All of the sweet, dreamy smells and feels!

Cheers to the weekend! We have been taking it easy, unplugging best we can, and enjoying this time with my kiddos.
.
It’s been a really challenging season as a mom, parent. I’m trying to be more intentional, and for someone who battles mental illness it’s so hard! Today I took my older 3 out on lunch and dinner dates....just them and me, having uninterrupted time without my youngest with Autism taking my attention away. I will say It was wonderful! I truly missed them in that sense. Talking with them, laughing, getting to them better. What a fun Saturday!
.
Hitting the beach tomorrow, with nice walks up the coast, sand castles, picnics—I’ll stay wherever I am when the sun sets. It’s something we were really looking forward to all week. How are your weekend plans shaping up?
.
Keep doing your mama!! Keep your head up! Don’t let mama guilt eat at you! Your kids are so blessed to have you as their mother. Keep doing you and doing what you can! 😉

I’m sorry friends. Life has been rough, challenging, and honestly so much is going on at the same time. It seems like everything just keeps getting worse. Isn’t how It usually works? Things get worse before they get better? I’m holding on to that.

So much has been going on BUT I will just focus on the sweet girl turning 5. F I V E! Sunday was full of reminiscing and reflecting on the last 5 years and how much she has changed our lives for the better.
.
I think of the trials/struggles/hard times we’ve been through (deployments, underways, 5 moves, Autism diagnoses and more!) but also the JOYS and PROGRESS she’s made in these last 5 years. My heart literally could burst.
❤️
We had a wonderful day celebrating this sweet girl. Her face from the time she woke up to the end, you could just see how truly happy she was. No problem behavior, no screaming or hitting. JUST PEACE. A lot of love and laughter and hank God for that blessing. Happy Birthday (last Sunday) to our girl!! ❤️🌷
