Halloween is coming, and with all the festivities, there’s one thing I really dread about Halloween – the candy! I’m hippy(ish) myself, and now that I have 2 little boys, they also get to be hippy(ish). That means we drink our green smoothies for...

The Best Essential Oil for Skin!

My 1st Book is Getting a Facelift!

My Second Chance

This morning I woke up at 4 am and had a song playing in my head. It was so clear and real, it sounded like I was listening to the radio. I hadn’t heard the song since I was 24 and had just had surgery. I found the song on a CD I checked out from the library, and it...
