oh hey there!!
I have missed this little corner of the internet.
I won’t go into details of why I haven’t been around. life is full of ups and downs, priorities change, usually out of necessity, and dare I even say survival at times.
Lots of things have changed, in this world and even in our family and home. 2020 was well 2020. And then the beginning of 2021 brought the biggest loss my heart has ever felt, when I had the honor of being by my Dad’s bedside as he left this earth for his eternal HOME. The hole that is left in not having my Daddy here, is simply indescribable. The pain doesn’t lessen, as much as it just becomes a familiar part of everyday life. Tears come freely at random times, and I don’t mind them. It feels good to remember him, miss him and allow myself to be sad sometimes.. There have already been so many moments and things that He would be so proud of.
This summer we had the most amazing time taking our little family to my favorite place in the whole world. Kings Canyon National Park, staying in my Dad’s favorite campsite. So many amazing memories overwelmed me, as this was the place we camped as a family my whole childhood and even into adulthood.
We had the added joy of getting to meet up with friends that are more like family. The same family we have 30 years worth of camping memories with. After a 17 year gap of time, It was like entering a bizzar time warp, watching my friends that I grew up with, playing with my boys, in “our” river! Just wonderful and hopefully the start of continued traditions.
Now, as fall 2021 is approaching we have started school. We still homeschool, this year we have a pre-k, 2nd grader, and 4th grade.
We are thankful to have many of our ministry opportunities back, with some fun new ones as well.
We have continued to love our young living oils and products. And love to share them with others. It’s a large piece to our focus on switching to natural, healthy things for our bodies and around our home. I have some exciting new bundles to share with you!
Well, that seems to sum things up I guess. As I said, some things have changed a lot. others have stayed the same.
In the near future, I hope to come back to writing here at Love and scribbles. I’ll be sharing Young Living oils and Our homeschool adventures. Eventually, I hope to return to posting recipes, though not committing to the time and effort that endeavor requires just yet. I still use our Instant Pot pressure cookers daily, so feel free to ask, if you have questions about them! I love to help people become more familiar with our favorite appliance!
blessings to you all,
ps. thanks for still being here.. stay tuned for some new posts and things coming soon.
