Rugrats on Oils

Growing through what I'm going through.

I'm a mama to three beautiful children- Hawk, Scout and Saylor Verity. I've attained my co-occurring counseling master's degree and plan to return to work as a mental health counselor for postpartum mothers, once my children are in grade school. For now, I'm making my living as your oily lady & I'm just here to help you do the best you can on your chemical free, and natural alternatives journey.  It was really overwhelming to me, when I first started with oils, and it doesn't have to be that way.  I love to incorporate oils into my mental health practices, life in addiction recovery, and provide healthy coping mechanisms for my kiddos- in hopes that they don't grow up and turn to alcohol and drugs to cope with things like I did.

I have been waiting since 6am for both my children to be in bed, and asleep, so I could catch up on some much needed Z's.  Being solo this week while Jon is out of town is always a little tougher for me than the norm because the whole family gets emotionally outa wack....

I've gotten a little braver these last three months, at going out and socializing.  Not only that, but doing it with two kids.  Before my affirmation work, my anxiety about socializing with other moms and women would go to an extreme place in my head: She is weird...

When you're new to sobriety, or any recovery really, you are told to fake it till you make it.  Essentially what you’re being told is, have an optimistic attitude and that the only way to get to the other side of something (my addiction) is through it.  Well, I have fo...

The Fourth of July is and always has been special to me. Towards the end of my active addiction I can't recall celebrating it in anyway that I am proud of.  In fact, the last 4th of July I spent drinking back in 2013 was my last hoorah with alcohol. Go big or go home....

It's been 1,811 days since I blew 0.00, at Hazelden in Newberg, Oregon.  It's been 1,814 days since my last drink.  That's three days.  Three whole, long-ass days, and two very sweaty nights, of being woken up every two hours for vitals, receiving a breathalyzer, and j...

Last week, Jon and I decided we needed a family day. We said goodbye to the messy kitchen, yard chores, and to-do-lists, hopped in the truck and decided to take the kids on a ferry ride across the Sound.  Typically, I take this opportunity to blow up my FB albums with...
