• How to Help Your Mom Friend Pull Out of Her Funk

    As a mom, friends are the main thing keeping us sane. We spend day after day selflessly caring for our families. We give up our alone time and hobbies to keep our little people alive. The only way not to go completely bonkers is to have an outlet to continue being yourself. Now, just because we have friends doesn’t mean that we don’t get down. Moms have their moments and funks just like anyone, but they can be harder to break free from when you are constantly your own last priority. This is where our mom friends really come in!

  • 10 doTERRA Products You Need

  • Our Transition to Healthy

    I’m not sure I ever really knew what the word “healthy” meant to me. I guess I kind of assumed being healthy meant you only eat salad and spend 3 hours a day at the gym. I never really took into consideration all of the other factors that go into being healthy; I just embraced that I definitely wasn’t.  Pizza has always been my jam. Like, I know this is bad but, I literally used to order pizza 3-4 times per week. It was totally an addiction. I didn’t care because, well, it’s yummy!
