Cheers to a whole week of vacation. R&R, perspective, priorities, and lots of sleep- it's a great idea! You should try it.
For those wondering, here's where all we went on our 2018 Summer Vacay. Links are included where possible. Essentially, we took a grand tour of central Pennsylvania, and it was great.
Really, get out of your house, out of your office, out of your town, and go breathe some air made by trees you haven't seen before. The world will be here when you get back, but you'll have a whole new nervous system to deal with it.

This week I was invited to give a presentation at the Tamanend Herb Club in Southampton PA. We made Echinacea Tinctures and Immune Boosting Pastilles (aka cookie dough balls). It was SO MUCH FUN! The club was super engaged, asked lots of great questions, really had fun getting their hands dirty (so to speak) making the tincture and sampling the pastilles. A great time was had by all. If you live up that way you should check them out!
This week handed my butt to me on a platter. Just served it right up. It was a great week, busy and exciting, but I ended up not writing any posts like I promised I would.
I started to get all in a twist about it, then I stepped back. Some days I just don't have words in me to write, only to speak. And I speak to LOTS of people in a week! Some days I do have writing words, like today, and I'll get them out.
I apologize for the dead air this week. But I also encourage you to practice self-forgiveness when you encounter your own dead air. It's OK to take a shower or get 30 extra minutes of sleep or make a hot meal or even get a hair cut, instead of doing something else you ought to. It'll be there when you get back.
Also today, a spring time picture! I spy with my little eye...
Hi there, I'm an herbalist and a pilates teacher. Not a doctor, or a pharmacist, and not pretending to be one. My writing reflects my experiences, and I try to stay general enough so it might relate to you. This does not constitute medical advice, and I encourage you to discuss concerns with your doctor. Remember, however, that the final say in your wellness decisions are always yours- you have the power to choose, you are the boss of you.
