Happy 1st day of summer!
The season of flies, tails to the face, humidity so bad you change your shirt multiple times in one day and the longest work days of the year.
Being in health and wellness world I’ve tried my best to be an example for others.
It was 2015 and my husband and I were recovering from what was our toughest year ever! I’ll sum up the events that occurred. 1st up: several failed fertility interventions, after spending several years trying all sorts of things. We were heartbroken and emotionally drained, I was hot mess! •
Then our dog Bear (our child) got diagnosed with insulinoma which is a tumor on the pancreas. It was causing blood sugar issues and major seizures. We ended up having the tumor removed and thought he would be okay. •
Next up - Chris was finally approved for his TOTAL left knee replacement - MAJOR surgery that we had to put off because “pre-existing condition” bla bla … He was literally in pain everyday, it was bone on bone, bone spurs, arthritis, you name it - it was shot! So, there I was being a home nurse for both Bear, who began to have seizures again, and Chris who was recovering from this major surgery and who, by the way, is not a light-weight human for my little ass to be trying to help get around.
Bears tumor had come back with a vengeance and after 3 months of nursing him at home and doing everything we could we had to say goodbye. He had lost the use of his back legs, he was crying every night in pain and one night he looked me dead in the eyes and LOCKED eyes with me for several seconds. We knew he was saying it was time. It literally ripped our hearts out! •
The stress of the year was SO great we decided it was time to sell our business, our CrossFit gym that we had owned and operated for 5 years in Montana. That was hard but we had no choice. We were exhausted, heart broken and done!!!! •
We spent the next 3 years getting back on our feet, physically, financially and emotionally. Much of the credit goes to our Company Isagenix! None of this would be possible without our incredible nutrition, our community and our beautiful business partnered with this amazing company! It’s taken massive amounts of personal development and hard work. •

These last weeks have been a strong dose of real life. Farm and non-farm obligations. My tweens being out of school. Which apparently means my kitchen is a war zone and the dishes have quadrupled. A rotating schedule with our youngest’s maternal fam. And side projects for days. At this rate, Aaron and I will get to spend quality time together by August! 🤞
When it rains it pours. Sunday night, we found our largest buckling, Foreman, bleeding from behind his left horn. He must have stuck his head where it didn’t belong. Thankfully, he got loose and was able to eat and drink normally. But the damage was extensive. I’m talking almost lost his horn. Which, if you know goats, that can be a death sentence. It took 2 days to stop the bleed. Patient number 1.
I haven’t been able to make dinner before 8pm since May. So, our evening chores have become night chores. Just a bunch of headlamps moving from pasture to pasture. Last night we noticed our prize goat Pinkette (normally a lively, chubby doe covered in silky brown fluff) low energy, rail thin and fur a wiry mess. How long had she been like that? Par for the course, the production stopped. No goat left behind! We isolated her and her kids. Checked her eyelids and surmise it’s just the hungry hippos she’s created that are depleting her of nutrients. But decided to give her a few things for good measure. Full bellies of grain, 2 oral drenches and an injection later, we both feel better about her health. Though it will take time to get her back to peak condition. Patient number 2.
And lastly, I track down my beloved, still pregnant Highlands. Only to find Nala with what looks like a gore wound on her side. Could have been Betty. Their irritable pregnant syndrome is at an all-time high. But the worst part is, she’ll never let me treat it. I guess I’ll just be out there stalking her, monitoring the healing process. I’m sure she’ll love that. Patient number 3.
Life right now feels like Stella’s acrobats. Leaping and bounding over a bunch of unpredictable things. No time to pause. One missed step and she's thrown off course. She just keeps moving until she reaches solid ground again.
▪️Coffee talk▪️ found the cutest coffee shop here in Cincinnati, where the staff was awesome and the environment was so relaxed. I got an almond milk latte ☕️(and although I brought my own metal straw, their straws were 100% compostable!) and toast with jam. Quick story: I ordered the toast with jam and the barista asked if I was vegan, and said he’d switch the type of bread to the quinoa bread because the grain bread has honey 🍯 how sweet was that! Anyway 11/10 will come again.
No I did not drive 12.5 hours for this place, though it would have been totally worth it! A delicious vegan menu, sustainable products, a compost, and the cutest setup. I got the roasted vegetable sandwich and a “happy” drink. I could eat this everyday, so filling and nutrient dense!
