  1. Clarity

    Last week I woke up with this incredible sense of gratitude (also a sense of “how did I get here?”). Here being: In this house With my husband Two amazing daughters, son in law and now a granddaughter.. In an awesome community with great friends and work I love! A life I love, of which […]

  2. You can call me Oma

    My daughter gave birth to a daughter…. I was blessed, and honoured to be there and witness the miracle. I say miracle because the birth of a tiny human is a miracle. I feel that we often forget that. We forget that our bodies are beautifully and perfectly made. My daughter was fully present, in the […]

  3. I felt like I would die, if she did

    I remember that feeling when my sister was battling cancer. And then she did…but I didn’t…. Those memories return to me as our tiny town mourns. A young man is lost, a man I never met but I still feel the sadness that lies like a blanket over our community. Shock Disbelief Saddness Grief We […]

  4. I must have slept wrong…

        Have you said this yourself, or know someone who has? Well, I hear it a lot…but seriously, how do we sleep wrong? Unless it’s in a chair or on a plane..that I can see but in our own bed? We go to bed and we’re fine, we wake up in pain. What the […]

  5. What drives me crazy

      The whole idea of flu season. There I said it. I’ll confess that I don’t watch television, or listen to the news, or read the paper….shocking right? However, I still know what’s happening because it happens every year at this time. There’s talk about the approaching flu season….and mostly scary talk, like we need to […]

  6. My favourite things

      I thought I’d share some of my favourite things or tools that I use myself and suggest to my clients. Why?  Because we all need help in supporting our health and wellness on a daily basis. Yes, you heard me right…daily. So here’s my list: Anything Katy Bowman..her books, podcasts, DVD’s whatever….anything she has to […]

  7. A howling dog

    Seriously, it’s so distracting!! Loud and uncomfortable, because yes, I do feel I should be comforting him instead of writing this. However, it is a wonderful example of full expression of feelings. Imagine this…Daddy has gone to work, Mommy is trying to work, no friends to play with….feeling lonely, so very lonely. His instinct is […]

  8. Raindrop

      Have you ever heard of a Raindrop Therapy, or Technique? Well, it’s a method of applying essential oils to the body that was developed in 1989 by D. Gary Young. The technique is based on his research of the essential oils, his knowledge of the VitaFlex points on the feet and the effects of the massage […]

  9. One of those people

     I take my parenting seriously and that includes fur babies. So with this in mind, a couple weeks ago I headed “up the Valley” to listen to a talk by a homeopathic vet. My main reason for going was to gather more information on dealing with ticks so we could make an informed decision. Something in between […]

  10. Breakfast of chemicals?

    Apparently the average woman is exposed to eighty chemicals before breakfast. I know what you’re thinking..how is that possible? Or maybe you’re like me and you’re thinking, I’m not your average woman (which I’m sure is true). Let’s think about it: Personal care products like shampoo/conditioner, hand soap, body wash, nail polish (and remover), deodorant, […]
