About Me

My name is Carlie and I am a full time working wife and mom! My husband and I meet in college and started dating in March of 2010. In the last 8 years, we have had shared some of life’s biggest adventures.  We moved to Portland, Oregon after he finished college and lived out there for little over a year! While we were out there we got to travel to the coast often, went to Seattle, WA and to central Oregon. We also go our first fur baby, Hercules! He is a Shiba Inu and is unlike most of his breed! He is very needy and loves attention.  He was such a blessing to us when were out west and missing our family back home! We also got engaged at the top of Mt. Bachelor while on a snow mobile excursion!  A month later we relocated back to the Mid-west where we are both from. Since then we have gotten married and had two beautiful babies, bought a house and I completed my Masters in Organizational Communications from Murray State University!

Now here we are in this crazy thing called life, trying to figure it out one day at a time! In the process of doing so I have learned that I love to be a mom and a wife, cook, craft and share my passion of essential oils! I have also learned that I hate laundry and dishes! Who is with me on that one? It is seriously the worst! It’s never ending… however, we will get into that another day! 😊 Most of all, I have learned that I need Jesus in my life more than I ever thought before! I am strong in my faith and I love to share it and be a support system for those who need it!

We were such babies then! Five years sure does make a difference!

I hope that this blog offers you valuable information and that we can grow and make it through life together! I will be sharing organizational idea, recipes, parenting advice, and information on Essential Oils, plus much more along the way!

I am excited to share this journey with all you other squirrelly folks!
