You know what’s awesome? When you are sick and your toddler is sick and then one of your dogs gets sick. And you’re cleaning up dog diarrhea AND dog vomit at the same time while hollerin’ with your barely-there-voice to your clingy toddler to stay back so he doesn’t come walking into the mess. Then he melts into a puddle on the floor and sobs. And you now can’t swallow because you made your sore throat worse. And the dog is pawing at the door to go outside where he will unleash more piles of liquid poo which you have to pick up so the neighbor doesn’t step in it...
Oh wait. Awful. Not awesome, awful. That’s what I meant. It’s awful.
But you know what is awesome? When your nephew’s infectious laughter brightens the day, when your seven year old gives you the biggest hug and says everything will get better. When the fever you and the toddler had to sweat out doesn’t come back. And then your mother shows up with bags of groceries and fills your fridge. When your husband says you’re cute even though you can’t possibly be in your current condition.
Look for the awesome in the awful. .
And maybe break your own “nothing Christmas related til AFTER thanksgiving” rule by putting up some festive decor and curating your Christmas playlist a little early. 🤷🏼♀️
‘Tis always the season to find joy. ✨
I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet...
And I’m not starting the great debate again. But at any given point in the year you can find me roaming around the forest and you can bet a time or ten I’ve grabbed a few fir branches and given them a whiff. The smell of firs and pines and spruces are better then any scented candle you can find. Like if you could bottle up a tree farm I would be in heaven.
So when I experimented with this oil combo last winter I was sure to save it. It’s like a Christmas Tree Lovers dream. So I’ll just be over here all day long dreaming of fresh cut trees and all the memories they bring! (If you’ve never looked into the power of our olfactory system and how smells can envoke so many memories then you should totally google it...or just ask me)😉
If any of my oily customers want to give this trip a try let me know! I may send out a few diffuser bombs!

When you work at a snail's pace, things like figuring out the stair nosing become disturbingly exciting.
It isn't even installed yet... Jake just put it in place to show me his colour matching skills (the stair nosing was bought as an unfinished oak that we needed to match to the flooring).
I am slowly getting into the Christmas spirit which is odd for me, usually I am ALL over that. But I need to give the house a thorough cleaning and get a few minor projects cleaned up and finished before I can really go to town. Plus all of our Christmas stuff is in storage so I need to find that. And go out to my parents to cut some greenery to do my garland... Oh the to-do list just keeps growing!!

Long post alert & repost :
Christmas has to be the WORST time of the year for me - not because I don’t like it, but it’s complicated on how we do things in our family. Being a convert to a different religion, Christianity to Islam, we don’t celebrate Christmas and praise the Lord.
Since I was born in a family who celebrates Christmas, it’s been a hard transition - but also it’s simple to explain. I have an entire family that celebrates the traditional Christmas.
Christmas is one of the biggest holidays in a year, and it’s a perfect opportunity to gather around with my family, and enjoy their company. This is my way of seeing every one I don’t get to see during the year. Personally, there’s no way I’m missing this. As for my husband, who was born Muslim, I don’t force him to come to my grandmother’s Christmas gathering if he’s not comfortable with it. If he wants to come for free food, then be my guest. But I don’t push him out of his comfort zone to come with me because I don’t want him to feel like he’s celebrating Christmas.
As Muslims, we don’t bring Christmas into our home, as we don’t decorate or put up a Christmas tree - but this hasn’t stopped me from feeling the same way about Christmas.
Christmas is something that I’m going to incorporate into my children’s lives, although we will be raising them as Muslim - I will make sure they are able to enjoy this time of the year with their other side of the family, and are able to see everyone with the knowledge of we have different views on religion than them. It seems a little difficult now, but I hope it’ll get easier when we have kids. ❤️ ••

It’s unbelievable, the devastation caused by all of the wild fires. As most of you know the town of Paradise was demolished, leaving so many without homes, clothes and resources. It’s unimaginable. I know. And I’m sure so many of us feel so helpless. But, there are ways we CAN help! They may seem small, but to all of the families in Paradise your support means the world. I’ll be making another trip up that way next week. So, if anyone in the Bay Area would like to donate clothes, shoes, blankets, baby stuff, gift cards, literally anything you feel you can spare I will happily deliver it for you. Text, call or message me 😘 Sending you all so much love! And of course all of your prayers and love are always soooo appreciated! #paradisestrong#campfire#californiastrong#unity#love#tistheseason#generosity
