Open a book, and there you'll find,
A magical world.
_

A world of wonder,
battles and balls.
Go back in time,
Or head to the future.
_

Wherever you go,
I'm sure you'll meet,
a friend, a foe,
a make believe creature.
_

Don't close your eyes,
there's nothing to fear,
keep reading.
_

Fairies and gnomes,
Nights of all kinds,
Grand palaces,
Tiny, knobbly homes
_

Step into their world,
Soak it all in.
Enjoy each second,
Don't rush to the end.
_

Oh dear,
Don't cry, the story is over,
but remember each person,
hold them in your heart.
_
And when you want to go back....
Just re-open the book! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ It's been a long time since I've written any stories or poems, but, I think it's about time I started again. It used to be a big part of me and I miss it. 💕 So, here you go. A poem that came to me when I saw how this picture turned out.

Share your fiber haul from the festival, tag us and we'll feature you too!

#Regram @chickenlibrarian ・・・ Good Morning friends! I’m finally getting around to sharing my haul from the @catskillsfiberfestival. Look at all this pretty stuff!!! Yarn from @color_craze_fiber and @toadhollownj and that pretty Halloween themed project bag from @catiescreationsshop.llc. I had such a good time! I even blogged about it (link in profile). Happy Sunday y’all! Fall is finally here and all I want to do is knit! .

Do what makes you HAPPY,
be with those who make you SMILE,
LAUGH as much as you breathe and,
LOVE as long as you live

Lil Day 2 recap.... Guys...there's such amazing things happening here. Seriously... Here were the main takeaways from today :

1. The science of essential oils is growing + showing incredible results. First, you must understand that there is no company that rivals the quality + purity of dōTERRA's oils. None. It's being shown through comparative testing + studies, by labs autonomous from dōTERRA. The quality + purity of dōTERRA's oils makes it possible for a) effective change on our biochemistry, which other competitors are not able to achieve, + b) reliable research + studies to be completed because the oils are so consistent + of high quality that they can be used from one batch to the next.
2. Healthcare disruption. The vision dōTERRA has is not just for people to be using a drop of lemon oil in their water, but to drive the way forward for a new standard of healthcare that puts the patient first + treats the whole person, mind/body/soul. They're opening their first clinic on their Salt Lake City campus in spring of 2019 open to employees, Wellness Advocates, + the community, as well as three clinics across the US, to start.

3. The work they do in the world is incredible. Through dōTERRA's own Healing Hands Foundation which improves the infrastructure + access to education, water, + healthcare in struggling communities around the world, or through their partner organizations like 3 Strands, Rapha House, Days For Girls, O.U.R., + more, they are literally changing the lives of the most vulnerable + tramatized.

So, when I say I'm aligned with dōTERRA, this is why. Why would I support any other company when looking for natural health support? I've felt healing + support in my own life, just from bringing these oils + products into my home. + that's nothing compared to the healing + support being put in place for those who have suffered from child slavery + sex trafficking, the impacts of natural disasters, inaccessible education + healthcare... Each decision we make has an impact, + the more I learn, the more mindful I'm becoming of how I make mine. + that's why I'm aligned with dōTERRA.

And sometimes, self care really does look like a bubble bath....in the middle of the day. 💁‍♀️🛀

I feel so much better now with fresh hair, (my hair was.....yeah...let's just say it was in the same half braid for way too long and needed a good soaking) smooth legs, and a rejuvenated spirit. 🙏

And you guys.... tomorrow is the first day of FALL!! Autumn! That lovely time of year where the leaves change, pumpkins and apples are abundant, and fluffy socks and hoodies are welcomed back into my loving arms. 🤗🤗
_

The time of gathering and harvest. Of pies, soups and chilli. Of days starting to get shorter and slower.
_

Oh, I love the change a new season brings!

Are you all doing anything to celebrate the Autumn Equinox tomorrow?? 🍂🍂🍂

Место истории.

You guys! First, apologies for being MIA. Again. Second, I won a giveaway that my lovely friend @daenelt was hosting a couple of weeks ago on her blog, @livingoutsidethestacks. The winner received a canvas from @canvasonthecheap. I knew immediately that I would have ‘Joe Pye Weed’ printed on the canvas if I won. And guess what?!?! It is beautiful. I love it. I love it so much that I’ve already ordered another canvas and have plans to order more. There’s nothing like seeing your own pics in print. That is all. Happy FriYAY! .

Melvin gives zero craps that this bone is both too big & just out of reach. He is unwavering in his pursuit and keeping his eye on the prize. The lil dude is full of #lifelessons. *

Pourrais-tu grandir un peu moins vite? Stp 🙏

The boys are playing happily so I'm spending a few moments checking in with my fit tribe, and then it's nap time! {Praying I can get a little cat nap in today too!} 🙏

And you guys, this space right here makes me SO happy. I've dreamed of a homeschool space like this and now here I am, listening to my boys play in this magical space while I work....and sneakily observe their play. 🤫 For if they catch me, the spell will surely be broken! 🤫✨✨✨
