We have been loving the switch to organic cotton. Even Izzy says it just feels different! We recently had family come in town and so I decided to share a fun reel of myself and Luna (she’s honestly no help) making my office into a

Making Spaces Cozy with Rugs

Our new home had an additional living space and covered deck, both of which I felt needed rugs to make them feel more cozy. I looked for months at brands and styles and ended up going with these Orian rugs after watching their highlights on 

Healthier Option Mint Chocolate Cookies

Healthier Option Mint Chocolate Cookies

Let’s make some healthier option Mint Chocolate Cookies featuring some of my favorite products from Navitas Organics. Thank you Navitas Organics for sponsoring this recipe.

These are currently Izzy’s favorite cookies!

(Yields about 20 cookies)
Cookie Ingredients 
* 1 cup almond flour
* 3 Tablespoons Navitas Organics cacao powder
* 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
* 1 tsp monk fruit sweetener 
* 2 Tablespoons melted coconut oil
* Pinch of salt
* ½ teaspoon peppermint extract
* 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chocolate Coating
* 1 cup Navitas Organics cacao wafers
* 2 teaspoons coconut oil
* ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
* 2 tsps monk fruit sweetener

* Combine the almond flour, Navitas Organics cacao powder, maple syrup, monk fruit sweetener, coconut oil, salt and peppermint extract in a medium bowl until dough forms. Place dough in the fridge for about 15 minutes.
* Preheat your oven to 350°F and prep a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
* After 15 minutes, place the chilled dough on a piece of parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Cover the dough with a piece of parchment paper. Flatten with your hands and begin using a rolling pin to roll out the dough. The dough should be about 1/4 of an inch thick.
* Use a small circular cookie cutter or shot glass to cut out circular cookies and place each on your prepared baking sheet. I used a shot glass and even though it was not sharp like a cookie cutter, it worked great.
* Place cookies in the oven at 350°F and bake for 10-15 minutes. In my oven at 1/4 inch thick, 12 minutes worked great! Remove from the oven and let them cool completely on a cooling rack.


* In a small pot combine the Navitas Organics cacao wafers and coconut oil. Melt on med/low heat. Once chocolate is melted, stir in the peppermint extract & monk fruit sweetener.
* Using a fork, dip cookies into the melted cacao wafer mixture. Let any excess chocolate drip off on the cooling rack or on the fork prior to placing on the baking pan lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

* Place the cookies in the fridge or freezer for the chocolate to set, about 30 minutes. Once the chocolate has set, they are ready to eat! Store leftover cookies in the freezer or fridge to enjoy later.

Please note: These cookies are not super sweet. If you are use to sweet cookies you may want to add more sugar and some Navitas Organics Cacao Butter wafers in place of the coconut oil. I find they help cut the bitterness you can get with a “dark chocolate” or in this case cacao wafer. With that said, Izzy (currently a 7 year old) loves these as the recipe calls for them, and so do Joe and I.

Hemp Wellness & CBD

Hemp Wellness & CBD

Did you know that you have an endocannabinoid system (ECS)? You can learn more about how that system works & how hemp can be used to support this system here (please note when Dr. Knox says cannabis she is referring to CBD hemp). For another great and educational video as well-click here.

How has hemp helped me? Here is my testimonial: My family has seen benefits when getting sick. When sick we just aren’t as sick & the duration is much shorter for us since regularly nourishing our bodies with clean, organic C B D. Feeling calmer, less stressed and anxiety for me has reduced significantly. I struggled to fall asleep and have such an easy time now. My husband never considered himself someone that didn’t sleep well, but has noticed his sleep has improved and he feels so much more rested when he wakes up. Physically we love the creams when working out or if we happen to pull something… listen, we aren’t getting any younger. ha!

I’m not sure whom to give credit for, but I loved this graphic for visual learners like myself.

Ready to get started with Green Compass? This brand I love because they are organic and transparent about their ingredients and the processes used to create their products. Learn more about what sets Green Compass part here.

My favorite products: Full Spectrum Daily Nano Jellies, Full Spectrum Tinctures, Collagen (daily, this is the cleanest collagen I’ve found and it has helped more than my joints, skin, hair and nails), Reduce Topical Pain Cream, Soothe Topical Cream (I use this for sunburns, acne, bug bites and more), Roller Blends, Lip Balms & Buzz Insect Repellant.

Most people think CBD is an as needed support, but it does best as a daily. Most people take 1-2 weeks to really start seeing changes. Everyone needs a different amount so it’s all about starting slow. Weaning up to what feels right and then staying put at the amount. Reach out to me and we can discuss further if you have questions. Now with that said, as needed I may take more. For example when I got a concussion I took 3 times what I normally take daily. It helped me with my dizziness and nausea I was experiencing for a week after the head bump.

This is my testimonial & some great information I wanted to share about CBD. Again, my personal experience and knowledge I have gained since researching and educating myself on how plants can support our bodies. I am not a dr. I am here to share my experience and hope by sharing I might help others.

Hidden Hazards & Window Safety

Hidden Hazards & Window Safety

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Window Covering Safety Council. All opinions are 100% mine.

Did you know October is Window Covering Safety Month?

It is important to be aware of your window coverings and check your window coverings for exposed or dangling cords. Corded window coverings are one of the top hidden hazards in the home, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). This is because they can pose a strangulation hazard to infants and young children. It is best to replace these dangling cords with cordless products if possible. When choosing window coverings for your home look to install only cordless window coverings or at least those with inaccessible cords in homes with young children.

If you realize you do need to replace old blinds or install new ones, going cordless is easier than ever before! A recent US Safety Standard requires that all stock products be cordless, or have inaccessible cords. Be sure to look for products marked with the Best for Kids™ certification label. The products with the Best for Kids™ label have gone through third party testing and are designed for use in homes with young kids.

I hope this brought some light to a more hazard.
