No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.- Aesop
Doterra Natural Health

Welcome to my world of happy little surprises! I believe that God is in the details and this blog is my discovery of the small things that make me smile. I am a little bit Amish, a little bit hippie, a bit city, and a bit country, but a whole lotta happy Momma to the most beautiful little girl and curious baby boy. I like to make up words and meals and home remedies. I enjoy spontaneous trips to exotic places with my husband. My father died way too young from cancer, and since then, I am passionate about living healthy and helping others do the same. I believe that life is too short not to live it happy, healthy, and free!
