I’m a Jesus-loving, hubby-adoring, essential-oil using, home-birthing, homeschooling, crunchy mama of three girls who loves to write.

I’m passionate about living healthy lives–in what you eat, what you put on your body, what you clean your house with, and how you are emotionally. Taking care of your body is an investment in yourself–and when you invest in yourself you have more to give others. I plan on being able to keep up with my great-grandkids. You’ll probably learn pretty quickly I use essential oils for everything as there is always “an oil for that.”

I love making my home beautiful (as I can make it with small kids) and comfy, I like my garden filled with home grown food and flowers , and I love welcoming people into our cozy chaos.

Originally from Orange County, California, Matt and I met and lived in San Diego for 6 years before moving to Seattle for a job opportunity. After having our first girl we realized family help was underrated, and moved to Edmond, Oklahoma to be near my parents. Seven years and two more girls later we packed up and headed back West to settle in Southern Oregon. 

Being outside is where I feel most connected and grounded, and I try to bring my girls into the sunshine and wilds as much as I can. 

I enjoy creating things like watercolor paintings and quilts and nourishing meals, cultivating things like the plants in my yard and kids in my care, and if yoga or trail running isn’t cutting it for stress relief, I enjoy target practice with my bow or guns.
