On our last trip we struggled to know how much water we were using. So for this trip Ant knocked up this little gadget which uses ultrasound to measure how much water we have left and wirelessly transmits it to a display we have by the sink.🚰
Saturdays are Hydration days. After all the cocktails and shots, you need to drink lots of water to help your body flush out all the gunk from your system.
Water is so so so important for your skin. It keeps away dehydration which may manifest as small rash-like spots on your face, chapped lips, dry skin on your body and even vaginal dryness for some women.
Everyday ought to be hydration days actually, try to drink at least 4 liters a day. Some sources mention a little more or a little less for some people.
One major key to glowing, healthy and supple skin is WATER.
I personally find it hard to drink plain water so I find it easier making flavored water by adding cucumbers 🥒 lemons 🍋 and mint leaf 🍃 to it. This also serves as a form of detoxification, so it’s a win-win 😎😎 It is also best to drink smaller quantities all through the day so you stay hydrated and not just fill up your bladder 🙂🙂🙂 So stay hydrated and beautiful, lovelies.

I get to spend the day with my hubby today and I’m feeling extra excited about it! Even though it will be spent doing yard work, it’ll still be fun!! What would you do with a kid-free 24 hours? ♥️

I get to to go back “home” to Lebanon, Kentucky for a family wedding this weekend. It will be Katie’s turn to do the same in a couple more weeks. ⠀
There’s nothing quite like going back home and being with the people who have known you forever! I get to be with both of my sisters in the same place at the same time spending time together in our childhood home 🏡❤️ Family is truly what makes my world go ‘round!⠀
✨✨Where is your home sweet home?✨✨

This truly vintage lace in this set from @littleheirloomstitches is stunning and it reminds me of my grandmom. She passed away when I was a young teenager but if she were here today, she would make B all types of handmade heirloom goodies. ♥️♥️ happy Saturday and first official day of fall! 🍂🍂
Give me good books and fried eggs. Brewed coffee and ripped jeans, Vance Joy on vinyl. Give me sunny days with a cool breeze, cereal and milk at kid height, the feeling of being safe and loved, hugs in bed before my eyes are even open, and give me weekends, just like this.

Happy Fall Equinox everyone!! Oregon definitely decided to drop the temperature for the first day of Autumn, perfect for adventures. #sweaterweather
DAY 4 - Arctic Circle Trail
Ikkattooq - Eqalugaarniarfik
The fourth day on the trail was a very short hiking day, only 11 km, and started out foggy. The perfect excuse to take it slow in the morning. By the time I’d made it out of my sleeping bag and had lots of coffee the fog had cleared and the sun was starting to feel warm. There was a quick climb out of the mountain saddle followed by and even steeper, blueberry-filled, descent into a wide flat valley. On the way down I saw my first arctic hare. They are huge and have fur as white as snow. In the valley I had to cross the Ole’s Lakseelv, the widest and deepest river on the trail. According to trip reports I’d read, fording right through was tricky. The water level could be up to your chest. I spent about 20 minutes searching for the best spot to cross only to conclude that it didn’t matter; there was no way around getting really wet. Took off my pants, put on my Crocs and went for it. The water got up to my waist but it was an easy crossing. After another two hours of hiking I arrived at the next hut. Had a lazy afternoon picking berries and looking for the nearest drinking water source. With no river or lake next to the hut, water had to be collected from a nearby spring. In the hut was a note with instructions and gps coordinates. So much more fun than just opening a tap! In the evening two Danish fellow-hikers arrived. We lit candles, played cards and went to bed at 8pm.
If people really knew what was in the food and drinks they are consuming and the effect those ingredients have on their and their kids’ bodies, do you think they would think twice about consuming them?? While some would say ignorance is bliss, I say knowledge is power and once you know you can’t “unknow”. With that knowledge and power comes choice, a responsibility and an awesome opportunity to influence the world we live in. My mission is to empower people to lead a less toxic and healthier life. From the foods we eat, the water we drink, the personal care products we put on our skin and head, and the cleaning products and fragrances we inhale into our lungs... all these lifestyle choices impact our and our kids’ and our planet’s health 🌏. In my health coaching sessions, healthy home / healthy swap gatherings and cooking classes my mission is to take people from overwhelm to overjoyed with the prospect of living simply and with hope. While the outlook of the planet’s health can look dismally depressing, never underestimate the profound impact we can all take at a micro level starting with our OWN HOME and our OWN LIFESTYLE CHOICES. You don’t need to do this alone! There is the support of a like minded tribe who “gives a shit” to back you. There is a groundswell movement echoing from the rooftops that we’ve had ENOUGH of the chemical shitstorm that surrounds us. Join me on this journey for the betterment of your health, your family’s health and the health of the planet. The future is in our hands ... and there’s nothing more empowering than that!!! DM me if you don’t know where to start and I’ll hold your hand and inspire you to be the change you want to see in the world. #giveashit#chemicalshitstorm#staraniseorganic#livesimply
