REVIEW: February Favorites

Hello, friends! It’s hard to believe that yet another month of 2016 has flown by so fast! We enjoyed a very spring-like February, went on some hikes, did some rockhounding and I celebrated my 37th birthday. This was such a fun month for new products, books and of course delicious new recipes! So let’s dive…

REVIEW: January Favorites

We had a few highlights during January – a good bit of snow early in the month, took Willow to use her snowshoes for the first time AND we got our fireplace running! Which meant we were finally able to keep our house heated above 60°! Not even kidding, our house was freezing – I’m…

Unplug to Reconnect

I have been unplugged from social media for over a week now. One full week. It was never my intention, but after two getaways with my family where I didn’t use my phone for anything other than texting, I came to a sad realization. We, as a society (myself included), spend far too much time…

New Products in BeSolFul Etsy Shop!

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s been a busy couple of weeks and if you follow me on Instagram, you know that I hit a couple of setbacks with my shop. We had ordered all the ingredients, packaging, and labels for my body butter, only to find out that summertime is NOT a friend of homemade body…

REVIEW: May Favorites

Happy June, everyone!! Like all of the previous months, May flew by just as quickly. It was a bit of a rough month – a combination of rare gloomy weather, plenty of toddler meltdowns and some feelings of stress and being overwhelmed. But it’s a new month and I’m excited for what’s in store. The sun is back and summer…

On the night you were born, the moon smiled with such wonder that the stars peeked in to see you and the night wind whispered, “Life will never be the same.” Because there had never been anyone like you… ever in the world. {{On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman}} These last few…

Happy Friday, everyone!! Today’s interview is with someone I’ve only known since the beginning of October, but has grown to be a dear friend. I met Jen through Lauren (from last week’s interview) when they ran the Fall In Love With Life challenge on Instagram this past October. Not only was the challenge a healing…

REVIEW: October Favorites

Hope everyone had a great October! Ours was full of adventure and fun – my absolute favorite season. I fully intended on getting this blog post up a few days ago, but I battled vertigo all last week, so when Willow went to bed, I wasn’t far behind her. Luckily, things improved over the weekend and…

YOU are Beautiful

I am 5’4″ and 120lbs. I’ve been called fat, big-boned and thick…and during my unhealthy, sick years, I was called all the opposite – a walking skeleton, a rail, skin and bones. Why am I telling you this? All of those words did damage to my body image. Our society’s concept, or definition of what’s…
