I don’t look my age. When I say that, I don’t mean it as a bragging right, I just know I don’t. People always thought I was the younger sibling in my family. My husband is 8 years younger than I am and people are always in shock. Some say it’s because I never wear make-up, others say it’s the vegetarian lifestyle. Some even credit my seemingly easy, stress free life (which always makes me smile… oh what they don’t know!). I’ll tell you what my secret is : I treat age as a number, it never defines me…
I’ve changed fields of work more times than I can count. I consider myself the perpetual student. I’ve always been a pretty fickle career women. Mostly because, I’ve never really wanted a career. A job has always been what pays the bills and when I had been in a job for too long, monotony would set in and I would reorient. Once, it even brought me back to school after several years for a bachelors and 3 semesters of a masters. Wen to school in my field. but still, 5 years later, I reoriented.
The only thing that has ever lasted longer than 5 years has been my love of the home. Being a mom, a wife, having a home to care for and make sustainable. Planting, growing, fixing, building… Creating a universe that is to me and my loved ones an oasis of peace. That is my dream career.
So when Isis from Little Mountain Haven told me about this amazing online class given by The Herbal Academy of New England, I just knew that is what I should be doing right now : Learning how to heal and care for my family naturally. I had already started a herb garden, hoping to make a few teas, but this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up!

I started 2 weeks ago and have devouring the readings and material for the class. I haven’t been this excited about learning in a long time.
I will be 40 this year, but I still don’t feel it : My home makes me happy, my mind keeps me young… You are never too old to learn and life is to short to not have the life you really want!
Have a good night everyone. xo
