I'm so excited to introduce the newest kitten to our family, sweet little Blu. He arrived Tuesday after a trip to Ohio (he comes from Michigan) and is a Ragdoll. His coloring is traditional blue colorpoint, which actually is the original color I fell in love with when I first discovered this laid-back breed.

With fall and Halloween just around the corner, I figured this would be a good post for the almost upcoming season. I follow a few Instagram accounts that are really big on the health benefits of essential oils and crystals. Both being holistic, natural and earthy -- my interest piqued. I love essential oils and if I'm being honest, mainly for smell (vanilla, rosemary and lemon being my favorite combo). I haven't used them daily or frequently enough to determine if there are actual health benefits to them, but.. I do believe the many people I've spoken with that say they've helped during the sick season along with the alleviation of stress and anxiety among other things. I've had a diffuser for quite some time but am somewhat limited in the oils I can use because of our pets. Any oils that contain phenols are toxic to cats so I won't diffuse those in our home.

Myrtle Beach

This was our first family vacation as four to the beach and we had so much fun. Experiences are very important to me and I want Brody and Harlow to grow up with tons of memories of adventure and a bit of wanderlust. We enjoy sharing our love of travel with them (and love for the ocean) and hope they grow up continuing to love it too.
