Our Homeschool Journey

Do you homeschool?  We started homeschooling in March, 2015.  Our kids went to a nearby Catholic school, which we were very happy with until the 2014/2015 school year.  Our daughter was in 3rd grade at the time and up until then, she absolutely loved school.  I mean, she loved it!

Homemade Deodorant

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder…the Demon is Real

I haven’t written about my Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) in a long time.  Well, I haven’t written on my blog in a very long time, for that matter.  I have been busy with my Young Living Essential Oils business along with being a stay at home mom of 2 and homeschooling them.  So, to say I am overwhelmed sometimes is an understatement.
