Mommy, Hold My Hand

By Nicole / December 18, 2015

There are days where I feel like I just can’t get anything done. I feel overwhelmingly lucky on the days I’m able to shower, fix 3 square meals, and wash the dishes. Add in completing laundry, and I’ll feel like we’ve hit the jackpot. This entire month so far has been consumed by a the […]


Does Your HVAC Need More Freon?

By Nicole / December 3, 2015

Freon, otherwise known chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, these chemicals are controlled substances, which means they must be properly disposed. If you have central AC/heat, chances are it is a closed system unit. It does not consume any coolant in order to function. Contrary to what many people think, it should […]


Is Your Home Toxic?

By Nicole / November 22, 2015

If you purchase your cleaning and personal care products from the local or chain department or drug store and don’t pay attention to the ingredients label and what each item is and what those individual and mixed items can do to your body, chances are, you have a toxic home. Although your body is incredible […]


Mommy Time-Out

By Nicole / November 17, 2015

Kids crying… spaghetti sauce exploding all over the stove… husband calling to let you know he will be home in 20 minutes… dogs rampaging through the house, fighting over a single bone (when there are at least 4 lying around the house)… you stub your toe on a cabinet (you know – the one on […]


Homemade Sugar Scrubs

By Nicole / November 8, 2015

Last year I decided to dive into a little DIY for the majority of the Christmas gifts we gave to friends and family. After years of research and learning what is in the day-to-day products we use (like lip balm, skin and hair care products, cleaning products, cosmetics… etc), my family has been replacing the […]


Homemade Body Butter 

By Nicole / November 4, 2015

Today I made some body butter for my dry, cracked hands and feet, and had to take a moment to share with you how I made it. If you have never tried homemade lotions or body butters, you truly are missing out!! I’m one of those people who deals with seriously dry, chapped, and cracked […]


Too Much Halloween Candy??

By Nicole / November 2, 2015

It’s that time of year again. The Halloween rush has ended. The parties have stopped. And the pile of sugar earned from a hard night’s work of Trick or Treating never seems to end. What is one to do with all that left over candy??? I definitely don’t recommend eating a little at a time […]


Why is it so difficult for a new mom to make new friends?

By Nicole / May 8, 2015

Hello Baby… Goodbye social graces… I sit here as a brand new mom, watching my newly mobile son play and admire him as he consciously stands by himself for the first time without holding on to something, while our dog strategically lies next to him with his ears out of little hands’ reach, and VeggieTales playing in the […]


A Letter To My Younger Self (or My Sisters)

By Nicole / April 23, 2015

I would have a lot to say if I were able to send a letter to my younger self living 10 years ago. It’s a message that’s been on my heart a lot lately as I see my sisters approaching where I was 10 years ago. I really am hoping it will help someone somewhere. It might […]
