Back from Vacation with Something Exciting to Share!

I just got home from an eventful 10-day vacation that started in Texas and ended in Maine. With two back to back wedding weekends and a short New Hampshire climbing trip in between, we had a jam-packed time. I wish we could have had a bit more relaxing mixed into this whirlwind trip, but to be honest, it was so much fun it doesn’t matter. I was able to recharge my battery by reconnecting with great friends while enjoying the beautiful natural landscape in central Maine. We swam, we ate, we drank, we laughed, we cried. (Might have been the crying-est wedding I’ve ever attended — and most unique and beautiful.)

4 essential habits of healthy families

Spending quality time with friends and family is always fodder for a sweet (potentially sappy) post about how much I cherish the people in my life. I’ve done that a few times on this blog, so I’ll sum up my sentiments with this: I am so so so grateful for the path I’ve taken in my life that’s led me to amazing people, all doing amazing things with their talents and passions. I cherish the relationships I have — my cousins who are getting older and have become young adults that I love talking to and listening to, and the friends I’ve made over the years.

The last weekend of my vacation was spent entirely surrounded by kids. I seriously don’t think I’ve ever seen so many children in one place at one time that wasn’t some sort of school or camp in my entire life. There might have been close to a 1 to 1 ratio of adult to child at this wedding. It was bananas.

But there was also something cool about it. My friends who got married draw a special type of person into their lives — the DIY, off the grid, natural-living, adventure-seeking, sincere type. I was excited to reunite with the mutual friends we share, but I was also fascinated to meet people I’d heard about by name but never met (and their 2 to 5 kids in tow). I was interested to learn about the unique and fulfilling ways they were living their lives and raising their families.

And that brings me to the “something exciting to share”!

The 4 Essential Habits of Healthy Families

I skipped a post last week while I was on my vacation, but what I wanted to give you is ready today! It’s free and it’s awesome. Get excited.

Here it is:


My friends over at Spark Health and Ultimate Bundles have put together a FREE mini-course called “The 4 Essential Habits of Healthy Families” Hey Folks, sorry, but this promo is over. But there’s a new one running through the folks at Ultimate Bundle! Go on over and check it out! (affiliate link)

The course contains a collection of quick and easy-to-follow lessons from trusted bloggers (like me!) to help awesome people (like YOU) learn simple, helpful ways to get yourself and your family on track for a healthy fall and winter season (and beyond!)

Here are the 4 Habits:

  • Essential Habit #1: “Nurturing your Best Self” (with Heather from Mommypotamus)
  • Essential Habit #2: “Staying Fit as a Family (Gym Membership Not Required)” (with Crystal from Money Saving Mom)
  • Essential Habit #3: “From Scratch Meal-Making” (with Katie from Kitchen Stewardship)
  • Essential Habit #4: “Using Natural Remedies” (with Katie from Wellness Mama

Each lesson comes with a 25-minute audio lesson, PDF transcript, and a practical “Take Action” guide.

Why You Need this Free Course:

If you’re like me, you’re often on the hunt for an easy, healthy snack to bring on the trail (or to the office), a new natural dish soap that actually works (and doesn’t just spread the grease around on your dishes), or a natural remedy for a head cold or sore throat that doesn’t destroy your gut bacteria (or taste like chemical grossness, not that herbal formulas taste that great).

You think about all this stuff because you want to be healthy and you want your family to be healthy too, right? You want to have plenty of energy to do things you love — get outside for a hike, play with your furry friends and children, do some yard work, create something beautiful.

And maybe you’re curious about what natural alternatives you could use in your house to get rid of the chemical-laden cleaners and sprays you use at home. I know I’ve been working on a chemical-free household for quite some time, and I’m almost there. My husband and housemate can’t quite let go of the chemical bathroom stuff, but I’m still working on him.

This course sets you up for success in the most essential areas of health and wellness, and it’s great for the whole family. And I love it because you can listen to it on the go and check out the “Take Action” guide when you’re ready to get started. I don’t know about you, but anything that gives me the option to listen instead of read is probably more likely to get consumed, because I can do it while I drive. I love that about modern technology!

If you want to get your family on the road to real health, it’s simple to get started: sign up for your FREE mini-course now!

P.S. Hurry because this mini course is only available until Sunday, September 6th. Don’t miss your chance to access this exclusive content! Grab it now.
