Love Doesn’t Flow Up

Events in our lives, such as the death of a loved one, can seem to bring about great reflection regarding life. We often reflect in a rear facing manner on the “could have,” “should have,” and “would have” in relation to the loss of our loved one but never about the can and will be [...]

Growing Up is Hard to Do

Adulting is a real pain in my neck. Really, a pain in my ass, but neck works too because you use your neck for so much more. I digress. Growing up and evolving into an adult, learning the hard knocks of life, understanding who I am as a human, person, and being in this world [...]

Loving Care with LaKota Herbs

As you know our family is pretty crunchy, green, granola and alternative. I see a naturopathic doctor on a very regular basis. Not that I am opposed to western medicine by any stretch, however, my medical history with western doctors left me heavily medicated and with more problems than what I was originally diagnosed. So [...]

Recalling when my mom put my childhood home on the market for us to move, my grandmother (her mother) came [...]

Hollowing lyrics play through my ears, a familiar song. “Their tears are filling up their glasses, No expression, no expression. Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow; No tomorrow, no tomorrow.” Listening to these words I am reminded of the craziness of our today, even the smallest craziness of today, parent teacher conferences. Still [...]

Have you ever watched chefs and the staff clean a five star restaurant? Yes that is what happens in my kitchen; [...]

52 Weeks to Toxin Free Home
