I Vow to YOU Today!

Welp, I think we can agree on one thing, I stink! And not smell like bad B.O, but I stink at this blog bit.  I haven't really put it out there in the world that I am even doing this blog jazz, so there really is nothing to complain about...but nevertheless I stink at it.  My intention for this blog is and was to allow it to happen organically, nothing forced or contrived...just honest blogging.  And well I guess I'm being honest when there is no posts made..that's certainly not forced now is it?!  But that completely defeats the purpose of blogging.  If you have a blog you have to blog.  Somehow I'll make it work.   I just need a swift kick in the pants to get me going.

Honestly my excuses as to why I haven't blogged lately are really just lame and so overheard. "I've been so busy."  Albeit the truth, it's lame...If I have time to Facebook, I can take the time to blog a little.  But then I'm sitting here going "What the heck am I going to blog about?!"

I really want this blog to be a awesome space eventually...somewhere that is fun to come and honest.  I have no intentions at the current moment to shout to the world about this here blog...and as I type this I know that I'm completely typing this for myself.  But maybe one day it will be read by others.

Anyway.....sooooo I vow to you (or to myself since I'm the only human that knows about this corner of the world) to be better about blogging.  It will happen.

As for now....here's a pretty little picture I took at the workshop I taught in Paris France two weeks ago. Isn't it pretty?!

Oh La La...oh hey...did you know they really say that in France?! They do...I guess it means WOW!  I think I like Oh La La better than Wow.  I'm going to start saying it.  Sooooooo Oh La La...(giggles)

DIY Sink Cleaner

It's no secret that I LOVE essential oils! I just think they are so helpful and to know that I can arm myself with homemade remedies and kick butt solutions is so empowering.
And here's the thing...I believe in modern medicine and even store bought cleaners...but the added benefit I have started to find using my oils for things like helping my girls with tummy aches and cleaning my kitchen counter with essential oils has not only saved us the green stuff (which I can now spend on sparkly stuff) but my family is healthier. It's so awesome.

So today I was cleaning my kitchen sink and I could not get it clean....I mean it was clean, but it was stained.  Cleanser wasn't cutting it and I wasn't going to use bleach in it.....(for pete sakes I wash my veggies in this sink...I don't want to kill off one of my offspring).  So I decided to try my hand at making up a little home remedy (I'm sure other people have done this..but to me I was the first.

So I opened up my cabinet and pulled out the baking soda, then I grabbed my Young Living Lemon Essential Oil.
I put the plug in both of the sinks.
I sprinkled about 4 Tablespoons Baking Soda both the sinks.  Then I put about 10 drops of Young Living Essential Oil in both sinks.  Added a little bit of water to make a paste...then I grabbed my scrubber and went to town.

I am thrilled with the outcome...and not to mention my sinks smell divine!
Never again will I buy soft scrub.

A Little More of Me!

Hey there universe!! so I'm not really sure what to blog about, but I have to have entries right?
Some day other people will read this here blog...but for now, it's just me in my own little corner of the universe.

So I'm horribly in love with all things girly.  No really I am.  I just can't get enough of little luxuries.. It could be a new silky lipstick or a cup of herbal tea in a vintage tea cup.  I just like surrounding myself with little lovely things.  I think it's my way of  feeling fancy.  Because I'm not fancy, I'm just a normal girl who leads a normal life.

One thing I love is perfume.  I just love smelling good and pretty.  I love spraying a pretty perfume.  Sometimes my mood dictates my perfume, and other times my perfume dictates my mood.

Now excuse me while I go smell something lovely!

Well Hello There!

My soul has wanderlust and I'm always up for an adventure...here's to a new adventure.  Catching Wishes. 

Why hello there world!  Welcome to my little corner of the universe.  In my own little corner I am exactly who I want to be.  I have toyed with the idea of starting a blog for a long time.  I think I missed the boat to be honest.  There's a bazillion blogs out there and well I know this blog will be a small fish in a big pond..but oh man, my pond is freaking rad!

Okay so why am I starting this here blog?  Well maybe I have something to offer the big wide world. Maybe I have something unique, or not so unique but maybe something I say or do will change someone.   So I should share with the the fact that I am a photographer.  I own Wish Photography, and I'm not gonna lie....I'm pretty successful.  I freaking love my job, but I know that I have more to share other than just my photography....I have wisdom, advice...life...awesomeness to share with you.
I totally get that maybe nobody will read my blog and honestly I'm totally cool with that...I just know I want to share.

So here I am sharing with you all my wishes.  Start Catching Wishes....start doing.
