Lemon Lavender Carpet Deodorizer

We have three dogs-this usually means that we have a lot of for and a faint odor of wet dog in our house.  Back in the day I would use Scentsy (still do actually) but I also like to use this homemade recipe to freshen up our carpets and give our house a fresh boost.… Continue reading Lemon Lavender Carpet Deodorizer

Why I Started a Bullet Journal

After quitting multiple side projects to focus on homeschooling and family, I found the urge to find new fillers setting in again.  I’ve always struggled to find balance in my life.  I’m always goal setting (and failing), pressing forward and trying to cram more into my day.  I decided to deliberately force myself to not… Continue reading Why I Started a Bullet Journal

Can we really do this?  Have we… Continue reading How I REALLY Feel About Homeschooling
