9 Lessons From My Dog

Lessons from a dog
April 26, 2016

I have had a lot of dogs in my life. I have actually only been without a dog for a couple of months between the death of one and the adoption of another. I have found that the dogs in my life have taught me a lot. Some lessons I am still trying to make a habit, but all of them are worth striving after.

  1. Always be an optimist

Maximize Your Time: Meal Planning

Meal Planning
April 21, 2016

Everyone is busy. It doesn’t matter if you have a full-time job, a part-time job, are a stay-at-home mom or are just between jobs. There never seems to be enough time in the day to get everything done that you would like to.

Natural Wart Removal: Results Picture!

If you read my post on Natural Wart Removal then you have probably been waiting for the pictures of my son’s foot…wart-free. I’m sorry that I didn’t track how long it took for the warts to leave…life got in the way. But I did get my son to hold his foot up to get a nice picture today.


You can still see where the warts were if you look close enough. If we were concerned about scarring we would apply coconut oil daily to help it heal.…
