The Best Books I Read in 2019

2019 was a great reading year. I met my reading goal of 30 books and I simply enjoyed reading this year. That is most important to me. I’m going to make this simple and just list out the book titles without a review because posting them here is enough of a recommendation. Feel free to…

How to Conduct Research for Every Mom

There’s this unspoken and sometimes spoken idea that moms are the least intelligent of people. One step above the IQs of children, you’ll find moms twiddling their thumbs while watching soap operas while their kids are at school, only venturing into politics when they ask their husband who to vote for, and reserving any mental…

Replacing Your Greenwashed Products

What is greenwashing? Quickly summed up, greenwashing is making a non-natural, totally toxic, chemical laden product seem natural through branding and marketing ploys. The Healthy Maven has a great blog post about greenwashing that I suggest you read for a more in depth explanation. Maybe you’re just starting out on your natural living journey, or…

My September Goals

Guys. Autumn is about to make her entrance. I can feel it. I am beyond ready. I adore cold weather and wearing leggings with long shirts and drinking tea and coffee endlessly. It is the time my soul comes alive. I may live in the south, but I can dream that I live in New…

Many of these ventures are gaining profit and growth very quickly. More and more people need help, but they can’t afford a factory/office building (not that they want that anyway),…

Gelassenheit: A Journey

I’ve written twice on gelassenheit, that un-translatable word that has stuck with me for almost ten years. You can find the posts here and here. Gelassenheit. The art of surrender contentment. When I first wrote about gelassenheit, I was renting a home from my in-laws that was covered in wood paneling. I hated that house….

Book Review: First Impressions by Charlie Lovett

First Impressions will always hold a special place in my heart because Anne Bogel, otherwise known as Modern Mrs. Darcy, selected this book for me at an event at The Bookshelf in downtown Thomasville, Georgia in June of this year. I always knew she was good at her job of book-to-human matchmaking, but I truly…

Book Review: Wonder by R.J. Palaccio

I read Wonder for my book club and I am so glad they chose this book to read! I am not a fan of children’s literature or teen lit. I find it difficult to relate to the angst of the teenage years and often the dialogue of children’s literature is very primitive and I find…

Book Review: Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson

Have you ever wanted a book list for your life? “What books should I read for my life? What books should I read before I die? What books should I read because I am a human?” If you’ve ever thought, or asked yourself those questions, you need to read Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson. This…

Book Review: Woman Code by Alisa Vitti

This book seems to be out of the normal for conservative ‘ol me, but it is one of the best books on women’s health I’ve ever read. Alisa Vitti recounts her experience of going through multiple doctors visits to figure out why she felt so terrible, her discovery of a PCOS diagnosis, and how she…
