Hi all! I’m Nikki—Which by definition means a wife, momma, and former business development consultant turned professional diaper changer. For those of you that know me, you know that I have a bit of a potty mouth, my sense of humor borders on corny, I'm obsessive about organization, words are important to me, I blabber when I’m nervous, I would prefer a book and glass (sure, or bottle) of wine over a night out at the club, I dance when I'm happy, Audrey Hepburn/Carrie Underwood/Jennifer Aniston are my girl crushes/role models, I fully believe laughter is a cure-all, my anxiety is a deep struggle, and sleep is incredibly important to my sanity. This is my family. We are FAR from perfect... our days aren't all sunshine and rainbows, but they are full of love and gratitude for the blessed life we have been given. I decided last year to take control of my family's overall health and wellness in a way that SCARED me... because change is scary. Deciding to alter so many aspects of our daily life seemed daunting and truth be told, impossible. I started down the essential oils path because I just wanted some sleep. My older daughter hit the age of two and decided all the sleep training we had done with her was no longer going to work, so our nightly battle became hours upon HOURS of fighting her at bedtime. While we were busy finding her special oily mix to help with the nighttime struggles, I discovered so much more down this path than I ever anticipated. I found a whole world of amazing individuals who just want to know better and do better. We work every day to keep our family's health above the wellness line by sharing what has worked for us, taking/teaching classes, watching documentaries, and creating a more peaceful path with each others support. Almost a year later, I can say without a single false pretense that once I opened my heart to the concept of something different, I shifted from scared to empowered. No longer was the process daunting-- I just taught myself to take it one day at a time. Day one was ordering my kit. Day 365? Well, we are still learning. We will always be learning. But now, we all breath easier, enjoy each moment more, and know that this path is taking us somewhere GREAT. I hope in my soul you decide to take the leap-- and share with me your thoughts on day 365 of your journey. Because while you won't be the same person, I can promise you'll be happier than you ever thought possible.
