Once I got the good stuff… a beautiful door opened for myself and my family, and now we are oily AF, with no looking back!
Here is what a day looks like for us. Continue reading “An Oily (AF) Day”
I think it’s hard sometimes to read DIY (do it yourself) and think… sure, I’ve got time for that! I am a doer, a maker, a DIY’er, but when kid #2 came along production stopped on all things that weren’t essential to survival.
However! Some DIY tasks come along, and it’s so darn easy and awesome. It ends up saving you time and money!

There has been a great deal of pause on Green Up Well! Since my last post, I have drafted (electronically) 12 posts. As well, I have handwritten quite a few. This Mama needed some mental time!
I have scribble here, scribble there… MANY photos of things I do on my phone…messages between friends, study groups, my children…collecting sharable information for sweet, sweet Green Up Well. Continue reading “What’s the Hold Up?”

Our paper towel-less home! We don’t use paper towels…. and we prefer it!
Nearly four years ago, we made the very scary swap from paper towels to cloth towels. It didn’t come with some doubt. I honestly felt like it wasn’t possible for my family to go paper towel-less.

But guess what? It worked! And it works really well. Continue reading “Our Paper Towel-less Home”
