We finally got our snowstorm in the valley!! So. Much. Snow!! Overnight! ❄ So of course we had to get out and play in it!!! The puppy and the toddler ❤ the snow so much! They also both shoved their faces in the snow and then weren't so happy about it either. The fresh air feels amazing!! We are most likely locking ourselves in the house the rest of the weekend and staying in our pajamas!

Global warming issues aside... I'm ❤ing the spring type weather here in Utah lately. Yes basically the state will be on 🔥🔥through the summer, yes we are in a drought and probably will be told to shower 1x a week (exaggerating kinda)... BUT for now this cooped up family is loving park days, walks around the pond, fresh air- if you don't mind the inversion of pollution- and good old 🌞. .
.
When I'm pregnant I start to feel SO claustrophobic! Even clothing makes me feel like I'm suffocating! So getting outside even if it's still in the city helps me to relax and breathe. When I go on walks I make sure to use Balance and Citrus bliss or wild Orange. I feel refreshed and refocused after my walks!

Where my preggos at?? What sorts of things are you experiencing that you didn't expect??

Do you ever end a day and just want your brain to shut down and just dont have to think, worry, focus, feel? Just have a break from the feels alltogether just for a night?

Working in Child Welfare and seeing abuse, neglect, sexual abuse, destroyed families and childhoods, and families in crisis I definitely have my fair share of days where I just don't want to think about it. I have been using my Forgive roller bottle like CRAZY lately! Self care is such an important part of life in general and even more so if you have a high stress job and exposure to trauma. I will be the first to admit that self care is the last thing on my mind after work! It's bedtime routine and mommy duties and then I just wanna hang out and then my brain off with some Netflix. .

What's your favorite way to take care of yourself??

The last week I have been on my death bed 😵 and back. Was dead set that my death certificate would say that I suffocated on my own boogies! I of course wanted something that worked and gave me relief immediately! And being pregnant I am limited to what cold medicine I can use anyways.
------------------------------------------------------------ I religiously applied oregano onto my upper back ( the smell of oregano on my chest made me gag all day) anyways... along with on guard on my chest, breathe stick 24/7 on my chest and tip of my nose. And at night I must admit to using robitussin so I could breathe better. In my diffuser I ran a blend of breathe, on guard and lavender.
---------------------------------------------------------- Although I still spent almost 3 days basically writing an emergency will, and nothing gave immediate relief my oils gave some relief and definitely helped me get over the bug faster than other people who had it! While I was sick I applied oregano and on guard to my son's feet and spine to avoid him getting sick! And so far so good!

So I tried the onion in the sock over night cold buster remedy last night. Here's how it went..
●  For the first hour I smelled nothing but onion
● The second hour I felt a little congestion relief and thought it was gonna go well!
● I was still up ALL night coughing and putting oregano and on guard on my chest
● In the morning my feel didn't smell like onion like I thought they would
● no relief :(
● BUT I used a yellow onion and everything I read says a red or white onion.
.

Has anyone had success with this remedy? What's your favorite cold buster??

Apparently the secret ingredient for fluffy cinnamon rolls is instant potatoes! Who knew? Have you ever used them in your cinnamon rolls? I woke up today really not feeling well bit wanting cinnamon rolls like crazy. So 3.5 hours later (for rising time, and I even cut that short 😂) I have delicious treats! Soooo yummy! What's your favorite homemade sweet treat??

❄❄"We have all heard that no two snowflakes are alike. Each snowflake takes the perfect form for the maximum efficiency and effectiveness for its journey. And while the universal force of gravity gives them a shared destination, the expansive space in the air gives each snowflake the opportunity to take their own path. They are on the same journey, but each takes a different path.
Along this gravity-driven journey, some snowflakes collide and damage each other, some collide and join together, some are influenced by wind... there are so many transitions and changes that take place along the journey of the snowflake. But, no matter what the transition, the snowflake always finds itself perfectly shaped for its journey. 
I find parallels in nature to be a beautiful reflection of grand orchestration. One of these parallels is of snowflakes and us. We, too, are all headed in the same direction. We are being driven by a universal force to the same destination. We are all individuals taking different journeys and along our journey, we sometimes bump into each other, we cross paths, we become altered... we take different physical forms. But at all times we too are 100% perfectly imperfect. At every given moment we are absolutely perfect for what is required for our journey. I’m not perfect for your journey and you’re not perfect for my journey, but I’m perfect for my journey and you’re perfect for your journey. We’re heading to the same place, we’re taking different routes, but we’re both exactly perfect the way we are. 
Think of what understanding this great orchestration could mean for relationships. Imagine interacting with others knowing that they too each share this parallel with the snowflake. Like you, they are headed to the same place and no matter what they may appear like to you, they have taken the perfect form for their journey. How strong our relationships would be if we could see and respect that we are all perfectly imperfect for our journey."❤❤ Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

Cleaning up never smelled so yummy!! And festive! I am all 😍😍 for the on guard cleaner!! Not only does it smell good, it really works 👐!!! Sticky, stinky, slimy, and grimy are no longer a pain to clean! For tough stuff and bathroom you just use more of the concentrate instead ofndiluting as much. Stuck on grime you just let itbsit for a few minutes and wipe it off!! I added some Holiday Joy to my cleaner today and love how it is making my house smell!! I'm kicking all the germs out in hopes we don't get sick for Christmas!! 🎄

Okay let's talk personal diffusing!! I have become obsessed!! ❤ It's so simple to add oils in the morning to help for all day! You can also apply more/different oils as needed through out the day! I have a couple diffuser cuffs thanks to @folkandco and a diffuser necklace from @nurturing.simplicity. Most days I start out by diffusing balance and citrus bliss on my cuff and  passion on my necklace!
.
How do you diffuse??

Happy December!! Although I know it's warmer than it should be in December I want to remember that one time in November we had snow for about 1.5 days. I'm not someone who wants snow for months on end but.... We should have some in December! I'm excited for the storm that's supposed to come next week! (I say prior to having to drive in it!) .
December in the oil circle we are spotlighting Douglas Fir! Make sure to add it to your LRP. If you don't have a wholesale account DM me! .
Douglas fir promotes positive emotions, focus, easy breathing and feelings of clear airways! Plus it smells like a Christmas tree! Don't be buying the chemical filled potpourri yo make your house smell like Christmas!

I’m really great at hiding behind the camera, seriously.. I take all the photos around these parts. So this month was extra weird for me during this photo challenge to find myself taking so many pictures with me in the actual photo. I had to play catch up a bit since I never realized how hard it can be to remember to take a different promoted photo everyday, but I did it! Cheers y’all and a happy December to you all.. and good night 😘🍷

My oil collection is growing and I’m thrilled about it 🤗Everything I need to support an all around natural lifestyle is right at my fingertips.
••
A passion for natural living is probably what led me to essentials oils (along with a few amazing oil guides who taught me about oils -grateful for you) 🙏🏼 Now I use oils daily and it has helped me to simplify my life, reduce harmful chemicals, save money, support my health and so much more.
••
Opening a wholesale account was one of the best decisions I ever made because I’m able to get the highest quality oils in my home for affordable prices. Not only that, but doTERRA offers wholesale account members loyalty reward points which earns FREE oils 🙌🏽 To learn more about the loyalty rewards program, use the link in my bio 😊
••
Now that I’m a wellness advocate for doTERRA, oils are also helping me create a side income and work with an amazingly supportive tribe of like minded ladies 💛💛 I’d be happy to give you more information about the generous compensation plan doTERRA offers! You don’t have to be as obsessed with oils as I am 🙈 but I’m sure that will happen anyway because oils are pure magic ✨

Tonight at bedtime, Kam used the Anchor blend on her heart and has Siberian Fir in her whale diffuser, Landon has the Petal diffuser going with OnGuard in it and I busted open the brand new Lumo diffuser (I'm in love) for Sophie's room and added a few drops of Arise and a few drops of Balance. My kids intuitively want these oils as part of their routines. I'm grateful that this aspect of self-care has been instilled in all of us. Today, (okay, this whole week) my energy has been low (Thanksgiving party animal recovery) and finally this afternoon, I thought to take more action with Rose oil on my heart. I don't know why I'm not bathing in it every day. It continues to do what I need it to do! 
There are other oils we used in addition to these today, but I'm realizing how quickly doTERRAs newest oils have become staples for us.  If it's been a while since you've updated your oil collection, I can't recommend the yoga collection (not just for yoga obvs), Siberian Fir, and Rose Touch enough!! 👌

Behind me, my kids are picking their favourite blends for sleep and blends that protect their immune systems. My 2 year old is spinning around in circles with his tiny hands cupped to his nose saying “yummy”. I love that I have an oil for pretty much anything and I feel confident to use them on every single member of my family. #oilstash #lovewildnovember @lovewildtribe .

A rainbow of oils ✨Are there any oils you have on your wish list? I definitely want Copaiba & Frankincense soon! This is just a small snap of what we have used over the last few months to support our family's health. I have wanted to try good oils (like, really good quality oils) for years but always thought they were too expensive. But once you think about all the unnatural products you aren't using anymore for health support or pain relief or seasonal ailments - it's definitely so worth the investment. I started out small so I could take my time discovering each oil. They are so unique and special just like the plants they come from, and it's been such a journey of discovery adding them to our daily routines. Join me tonight at 8:30 pm EST when I go live to chat about @doterra & oils that boost your ability to manage holiday stressors! #hawriverhomestead #lovewildnovember

Oil stash aka plant magic ✨ 😍 what is your most used oil? Or what oil don’t you have that you want to get?? I N E E D to get helichrysum at some point. It’s probably the best first aid oil ever—good for all things pain related, including emotional/spiritual pain. Oh and it’s good for your skin so there’s that. #lovewildtribe #lovewildnovember #growloveoils

I don't know why exactly, but the world around me feels like it's beginning to change as we head closer to 2018 and the newness of a fresh year. How will you spend the last month of 2017 when it arrives? // I think I want to learn how to ski and hopefully beginning photographing portraits! 🍂✨#lovewildnovember

We decided where going to make this a tradition. The day before Thanksgiving we harvested our first free-range home raised turkey. It was the best feeling giving thanks to those birds and giving them a quick and easy end. It feels even better though, to know the story our of our food from start to finish.

"I understood at a very early age that in Nature, I felt everything I should feel in a church but never did. Walking in the woods I felt in touch with the universe and the spirit of the universe." -Alice Walker

Our lives revolve around nature. We are outside more than in, whether in our gardens, playing with goats, hiking, washing in creeks, taking long walks through the forest, spending an evening around a fire with friends... A speaker I listened to recently said something that really connected with me. She said you can't go out into nature because you *are* nature. You can only rejoin nature. That resonated. In Nature, I am home.

Nick and I spend time in nature every chance we get. Being outdoors is so fulfilling for us. We especially love taking long walks together 💛 We definitely share a love for nature. A couple months ago, Nick proposed at the top of a mountian and it was the most special moment of my life.

Hello book-nibblers! I hope you’ve had a lovely Monday. With how windy it’s been I only ventured outdoors long enough to do some holiday shopping and to pick up a book from the library (one of my new-found favorite things of all time). 🌲. Since working with several small businesses this past year, and getting to know many creators and makers here on Instagram, I’ve come to treasure local/handmade/small batch goods more than ever. I highly recommend supporting small businesses during your holiday gift shopping this year! There are real people behind each sale, and I promise you they cherish your purchase more than you know. 🌲. A personal note... As a fellow business owner, know that your support for my books means the world! Every purchase, review, and message of encouragement is a light in my life and a motivator to keep writing. Thank you all! 🕯📚 ☕️

With how windy it’s been I only ventured outdoors long enough to do some holiday shopping and to pick up a book from the library (one of my new-found favorite things of all time). 🌲. Since working with several small businesses this past year, and getting to know many creators and makers here on Instagram, I’ve come to treasure local/handmade/small batch goods more than ever. I highly recommend supporting small businesses during your holiday gift shopping this year! There are real people behind each sale, and I promise you they cherish your purchase more than you know. 🌲. A personal note... As a fellow business owner, know that your support for my books means the world! Every purchase, review, and message of encouragement is a light in my life and a motivator to keep writing. Thank you all! 🕯📚 ☕️ . 🖋: @hannah.packer
My favorite drink is actually probably water, which is totally boring. but in the summer (or when we go out), it’s lemonade, and in the winter hot cocoa orrrr this chicory root tea, which tastes a bit like coffee. It’s really bitter and good for your digestive health, but probably not so much with all the whipped cream or chocolate that I add sometimes but YOLO or whatever 🤷🏻‍♀️ #lovewildtribe #lovewildnovember

Our house is starting to feel like home as we slowly start to make it our own. Yesterday we put up our little tiny Christmas tree too!🎄✨

Nick is still adapting to my decor preferences. I’m not sure he was expecting a deer skull to be displayed front and center in our bedroom 😂 I’ve added some dried herbs from the garden and it’s so beautifully in tact 😍

Home was yesterday’s prompt for the #lovewildnovember photo challenge and today’s is favorite drink. Mine is black coffee. I drink the same kind every morning, it’s a fair trade organic medium/dark roast 🖤

// h o m e // After a long few days of non-stop cousin fun, we are home. Today I was thinking about this song. 
1. Home is where the heart is

And warmth and love abound.

Home is where warm, circling arms

Go all the way around.

2. Home is where there's father,

With strength and wisdom true.

Home is where there's mother

And all the children too.

3. Home is where our Father,

Who dwells in heav'n above,

Guides us in the way we live

And lets us feel his love.

I am grateful that my extended familys homes feel like home to us as well. I'm grateful for the like-minded love of a Father in heaven and warm circling arms. Thank you to my parents (and Adams as well) for creating a loving family culture. Sundays are my favorite day because I get to listen to my kids happily playing together all day long. Happy Sabbath! // #lovewildnovember @lovewildtribe #home #Thanksgiving #momlife

The last of the golden leaves. Au revoir Autumn.🍂🍁 I’m preparing for Grandmother Winter’s arrival. She will spread her snowy cloak across the land and the Earth will sleep. What does the Earth Goddess dream? Do the trees dream of blue skies and the sun’s fingers gently caressing their lush green hair? I dream of traveling to far away lands. A church built of rusty red bricks. Someone hangs a verdant spider plant from the ceiling and I worry that the weight of the plant will cause cracks in the wall. The priest reassures me that the foundation is strong. Nothing is going to crumble. The rusty red contrasted with green is charming. My heart is eased.

Something I have always enjoyed doing together as a family is, going for walks up the hill and finding rose hips for fresh rose hip tea.

Fiery oranges and reds, together with soft purple lavender. A nice compliment to the oils I'm wearing together today: lavender and lemon. Calming and uplifting.

We spent the first few years of our relationship long distance. We would get to spend a weekend together here and there. Now that we are together almost all the time I just don’t know how we did it!

When I look back on our journey together, I feel so proud of how far we’ve come. We’ve purchased our first home and we are planning our wedding. My heart is so full.

The first few months we were dating, he sang + played the guitar to the song “Better Together” by Jack Johnson. He was so nervous that he asked that I face the other direction 😂 We are definitely better together 💛 #together #lovewildnovember #lovewildtribe @lovewildtribe

// traditions + thankful // "Other things may change us but we start and end with family." -Anthony Brandt
💗Most thankful for my people. I feel incredibly blessed to have family that is all close (in proximity and relationship). Last night, my siblings and our spouses all went on a date night to an escape room. I think that's a way better tradition for Thanksgiving night than shopping, so I'm declaring 'new tradition'! I'm thankful to have amazing parents who serve us in so many ways and many cousins for kids to grow up with. I'm thankful my mom wants family pictures so that my fam gets them taken. I am sooo not on top of that and Adam can't say no to my mom!! Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving!!!💗

One of the many things I am thankful for. ...my shoulder cat
I’m so incredibly grateful for my family. As wild, loud and crazy as they can be, everything is perfect when we’re all together. Keep scrolling for some photos of my wonderful family 😊
••
My grandfather was telling stories of when he was in the service. He and my grandmother were living in Germany when they were pregnant with my mom. He’s a great story teller and makes me laugh harder than anyone else ❤️ It’s moments like those that you hold in your heart forever. I’m so very grateful that we are all still able to gather for the holidays and I’ll cherish the memories we make forever.
••
Also I baked bread and it was a hit! I’m grateful my bread turned out good and wasn’t hard as a rock like I was expecting 😂

Dzień dobry pięknie 🤗 dzisiaj odpadam z zabawy na IG, oczy mi łzawią a w gardle dusi, chyba spokoju potrzebuje 😊 ale dziele się z Wami... skarbami z mojej pracowni... czego ja tu nie mam... pracownie mam malutką, więc wszystko jest upchane w skrzynki, pudełka, pudełeczka... dobra, kiedyś pokaże - ten bałagan pudełek, ale ja nie o tym chciałam... zobaczcie co to tam jest w obróbce na stole! Miałam mega zadanie! Tym razem dostałam gotowy projekt, który trzeba było przenieść na kartkę urodzinową (bo urodziny bez kartki to jakaś lipa ;)) i przenieść na prezent... a prezentem były... to za chwilę... wyszło #pięknie 💙 
Projekt który dostałam @ przerysowałam na papier, by zobaczyć jak ja sobie z tym poradzę, zwłaszcza z kolorami, bo wiecie, albo i nie... że na papierze to można jeszcze coś poprawić,  ale na tkaninie zwłaszcza, gdy już jest uszyty prezent.. to tylko idzie do kosza na ścinki, tego się już nie uratuje, no także tego #dalamrade 💙

| day twenty • something old |
I’ve always had a love for old treasures with a story so when my mother in law gifted us this door from a 1930s cook stove I couldn’t help but swoon over the warn paint and light coat of rust around the edges. And what better place for it to live than next to a cast iron model of a vintage cook stove on the mantle of our new fireplace. #lovewildtribe #lovewildnovember

Two prompts in one photo: baking and tradition. Every year I make these rolls...and I have for like, 10+ years. And for the last four thanksgivings I pick the best roll and take it to @ldslawgirl’s grave because they were her absolute favorite. (Thinking about it I did miss one year when I was in Georgia.) I know the squirrels probably snatch it up as soon as I’m gone, but it’s one of my favorite little traditions ♥️ what is one of your favorite traditions? What food do you not eat on Thanksgiving that everyone else seems to love?? Me: pumpkin pie and stuffing 🙅🏻‍♀️ 😂

Also, I’m grateful for you ✨ @lovewildtribe #lovewildtribe #lovewildnovember

I think my love for baking started here. With my mom. She had 9 kids. 9!! And woke up every morning and made pancakes. Even grinding the wheat herself. I love baking with my kids and teaching them how to measure, stir and of course-the cook has to taste test. That’s the best part.

Our family tradition is usually that my mom does all of the baking because she doesn’t trust any of us to do it. 😂 This year, however, we broke tradition. She finally let me make my dads beloved raisin cream pie. I’ll let you guys know tomorrow if my skills were a disappointment or not. 😏 #lovewildnovember

| day eighteen • talent |
Let me preface this by saying that I am not talented at butchering.. yet. The farther we wander into homesteading the more skills we pick up and take along for the ride. Among these I feel like a talent for proficiently butchering is one of the most important. I know I learn something new every time and I’m always amazed all over again by the whole process. Sometimes the skin tears and sometimes it doesn’t but it all tastes amazing. So thankful for the chance to grow these birds 💕🦃 #lovewildtribe #lovewildnovember

Day 22: Traditions // When I was younger, my mom would make us Ghirardelli Hot Chocolate before we boarded the bus on early, frosty mornings just before dawn. I still drink it today and think of those cozy winter days, the hot thermos warming my fingers as the bus drove through the sprawling sleeping, countryside. 🌌❄️✨ @lovewildtribe #lovewildnovember

Today felt as timeless as the day I took this picture. I mean timeless as in being without time. A moment that feels endless and intimate all at once. _____________________________________________  What do you have planned for this Thanksgiving break? Mine so far has consisted of reading the last book in one of my favorite fantasy series by @kcrosswriting, and working on my project for #nanowrimo. _____________________________________________  I’ve taken a step back from writing the first draft in order to continue some story structure and plotting. I’ve found I go back and forth between being a “pantser” (writing by the seat of your pants) and a “plotter.” Which one are you? Or perhaps a bit of both? 🌦📖🖋☕️

I’m currently in the process of finding out more about our heritage and ancestors in mine and my husbands families. So far I’ve found the birthplaces of a few of my great-great and great-grandparents, in both sets I have roots back to Ireland and Sweden and that’s just the late 1800s I wonder what more I’ll find. It’s so cool to find out more about your family. I wish I had done this sooner! #lovewildtribe #lovewildnovember

Combining two prompts for #lovewildnovember today since tomorrow will be full of fun and food and family! ⠀

Definitely one of our favorite holiday traditions is baking together. The kids all gather at the counter to "help" while I whip together pies and cookies and so many yummy goodies. Today so far we've made 3 pumpkin pies and some pretty tasty cranberry orange sauce with wild orange essential oil (see my story today for the recipe!). Later it will be molasses cookies and fresh bread. ⠀

I can also remember so many fun times in the kitchen with my own mama and sisters. Baking just kind of lends itself to good memories, doesn't it? And it's fun that so many of my traditions with my mama have turned into traditions with my own children! What are you baking today?⠀

 P.S. even if you're not much of a baker, you can still diffuse yummy oils!! Today's BOGO is Holiday Joy and Arborvitae. Holiday Joy smells like delicious baked things and Christmas morning and sweet and spice.... it's truly delicious. Message me for details!
{ baking + traditions } ⠀ ⠀ Combining two prompts for #lovewildnovember  today since tomorrow will be full of fun and food and family! ⠀ ⠀ Definitely one of our favorite holiday traditions is baking together. The kids all gather at the counter to "help" while I whip together pies and cookies and so many yummy goodies. Today so far we've made 3 pumpkin pies and some pretty tasty cranberry orange sauce with wild orange essential oil (see my story today for the recipe!). Later it will be molasses cookies and fresh bread. ⠀ ⠀ I can also remember so many fun times in the kitchen with my own mama and sisters.

#lovewildnovember in my diffuser. I use my hippy beads (lava bead bracelet) to wear clary calm with a drop or two of juniper berry every day for hormone and mood support and a blend I made for focus and energy on my new leather cuff that I LOVE from my girl @folkandco ✨
