So as some of you may know, aside from crafting body products, I'm also an environmental educator. I help people learn about gardening and sustainable practices for their homes and schools.
I love this aspect of my life, getting dirty and "being one with nature" fills me with a calming sense of purpose. The process of finding out who I am was touch as I was conflicted with what others thought I should be and how I felt about my strengths, passion and what I wanted to do with my time on the planet. I've gone through so many changes in career which is a needed thing for some. I'm helping a family member go through this exploratory phase, hoping she can let go of some of the fear and hesitation and go through this journey with an open mind and heart to her personal destination.
Here are a few photos of where my week goes. Enjoy!

Ever since Ive decided to focus on what I love to do, my days have been filled with great happiness. I'm able to give and receive such joy!
