For the last three months, I’ve been participating in Project 333. You can read about my altered rules and my list of items here, and I have a halfway update with changes I made to my list here.
Today, I’m participating in the She Reads Truth devotional–writing project. You can read more about the project and check out other SRT readers’ devotionals here. When I think about all of the different names I’ve identified with over the years, it’s almost overwhelming. Teacher. Wife. Sister. Neighbor. Student. Daughter. Aunt. This week’s lector. Coordinator. Friend.… Read More By Any Other Name: She Reads Truth devotional
As you can see, the excitement around here truly never ends. Wink. We’re leaving on a jet plane soon—details to come, promise—and now that I have this new love of embroidery, I’ll be packing a project for the flight.
Adding to my little “Natural living for normal people” posts. Read more about the basics of essential oils here.

I see a few pieces that could use updating or replacing, but I’m at a point where I can do that… Read More Summer Non-Shopping
Did you know that Down–to–Earthy was originally supposed to be a niche blog about leading a natural lifestyle? Of course you didn’t. How could you have known that? Why am I asking such dumb rhetorical questions? I dreamed up the idea for this blog a few years ago, when I was first getting into blog–reading… Read More Essential Oils: The Basics
My favorite little tradition. Happy weekend, friends!
I’m not much of a shopper. Take me to a mall, and I get sort of zombie–esque, staggering around, staring aimlessly ahead, wondering when I’ll get to eat (not brains, promise).
