It’s hard to believe but our summer break is almost over! I just love summer and everything about it – late nights, lazy days, summer sun, baseball, swimming, ice cream, birthdays and more! I could go on and on! We’ve been busy with lots of fun so I thought it was a good time to give you all an update….Instagram style!

Family trip to the zoo today! We’re all here!

My sweet middle child, Andrew, celebrated his 8th birthday with a sports party, of course! Just a few buddies and whiffle ball in the back yard. It was perfect!

We also celebrated Sydney turning 4!!! How can that be??! I actually started my Instagram Account right before she was born. Hard to beleive that was 4 years ago, too! 

Ella made her first Facebook Live Debut on my All Things Mamma page and talked about healthy snacks for kids! It’s my most watched FB Live video to date! Way to go, Ella!! She’s a natural!

The girls and I dressed up as Cows for Chick-fil-A Cow Appreciation Day! That was pretty fun! AND our food was FREE!

After a slow season, Andrew’s baseball team brought home a 3rd place in a tournament!!! We were so proud and happy to see all the boys work hard together!!!

And, I’ve been working hard on getting healthy. It’s hard! Most of you understand how hard it is to take time for yourself and work on getting healthier. But, it makes all the difference in the world on how I feel when I’m able to get out in the fresh air, get my blood pumping and adrenaline flowing. It’s like a little mental health break. Being a mom is hard. Working is hard. Being a wife is hard. It’s ALL hard. But, when you’re able to take a timeout and get out there, you can go back to your people refreshed and ready to tackle the rest of the day!

We talk about this all over on my All Things Mamma Chat Group page. I’d love for you to join us there! Just click HERE to go the group to request to join. I think you’ll really enjoy it! Everything from food to family to beauty to about anything you’d like to talk about! It’s a closed group so you can feel safe chatting and it not being all over Facebook.

Oh and another thing….I’m off to NOW Foods in Chicago this week for my first trip away in forever! We’ll be talking about having a Healthy Home which is perfect and goes right along with my book – Essential Oils for a Clean and Healthy Home! I’d love it if you’d follow along on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. I’ll be posting all along the way!
