The most exciting and scariest “welcome” of my life

Here’s a bit of my story

Ok, the fact that I am writing this right now is growth.  This is going to be a journey.  It’s going to be tough, and exciting.  I am fearful to be vulnerable, and truly honest with you and with myself. I am also so very excited to share my passion with you and hope to give valuable information that people like you are looking for.


Let me share with you about me.  I am 36 years old, a wife to Paulo and we are almost hitting our 10 year wedding anniversary. We have 3 little boys. William who is 8, Joshua is 5, and Matthew is 2.  I am very outnumbered at home to say the least, and I can’t tell you how many times I have to say “wipe the seat”.  Seriously, it’s non-stop.


I am not your average “crunchy” mom.  My kids eat sugar, they color on themselves, and we have a messy house sometimes.  But I can say that I am trying really hard, doing my best to reduce the amount of toxins in our home.  The more I have researched and uncovered, the more terrified I am.  Which makes me want to get the word out even louder.


Since I’m not perfect, I expect to make mistakes, which to be honest isn’t easy for me to admit, see I have let pride get in the way before.  But like I said, I’m on a journey.  Not only a journey into less toxins, natural products, but also on a journey of self discovery.  I am discovering limiting beliefs, and false stories that I have been telling myself since I was a kid, or that I was told by my parents, because that’s what they believed, or they didn’t even know that they were doing it. There’s all these generational beliefs that happen, and oh my gosh, am I trying my hardest not to put mine on my kids.  A journey, like I said.  I am on a mission to discover the real me, where I am truly happy and content, and where I completely love myself.


If it wasn’t for the timing of events, I wouldn’t be on the path that I am on, I wouldn’t be surrounding myself with the most amazing people who actually love me for me and I wouldn’t be as grateful as I am.  I have to remind myself to practice gratitude everyday, because that’s what it is all about.  So much to be grateful for, and my past track record has tended to allow complaining in.  But awareness is a gift.


I am so grateful that you are here, reading this, and joining me on the journey of self discovery and hopefully less toxins in your home.  I look forward to sharing recipes and DIY’s, education, and my whys with you.
