New Year, New Beginnings

I love the New Year - the fresh starts, the endless possibilities, the white and bright and shiny. I am a dreamer + doer by nature, so resolutions are something that I take to heart. And I've decided to extend some of my resolutions into this space as well. 

I feel as though I am in a transitional stage in life. I am still learning and growing and figuring out what I want my life to be, and in the midst of that the Lord is teaching me about marriage, motherhood and purpose. I'd love to share some of that with you because I am certain I am not the only thirty-something out there who is still figuring it out. When thirty seemed so far away, we were certain we'd have it all by now, but the reality is that life is messy, parenting is hard and marriage takes work. 

So, all that to say, that I've decided to give the site a little facelift to encompass all the things that I want to share with you:
+ Living a natural, healthy lifestyle
+ Continued tips + tricks for eating a whole-foods diet on a budget
+ Healthy recipes
+ Tips + tricks for using essential oils in your everyday life
+ Personal finance + freedom from debt
+ The heartbreaking joy of motherhood
+ The beauty and intentional work of a Christian marriage
+ Thoughts on faith and growing through the hard seasons
+ Maintaining balance + staying grounded in a world of endless distractions

So today, I invite you to thiscommunity - a place to talk about life, health, love, motherhood, joy + pain as we walk through this imperfect life. Will you join me?
