Hello, nice to meet you.

Welcome – let me introduce myself. It’s something that I’ve been saying a lot lately when presenting my essential oil classes. I’m finding that its a re-introduction of sorts, even for me! I’ve been through some very big changes in my world over the past few years and I truly feel like I now know the ‘new me’. This of course, will change as the years go by as I think, like many of us, just when you think you have adjusted to the ‘new normal’ (whatever that may be), something else comes along that changes the landscape yet again. I like to think of it as an opportunity for us to re-invent ourselves, evolve, develop into new and better versions. If we can always be striving for that, it makes for a fascinating journey of growth and discovery if you are willing to take the path.

Having now come out of the fog that had resulted from my cancer experience and treatments, I find myself dusting off a lot of my old attitudes and outlooks. During this process, I noticed that my blog and the ‘About Me’ section no longer fit. I’ve done some updating and decided to make it a blog post so that I could get current with you as well.

About Me – and what I write about here:

My name is Sandra and I’ve been an auto-immune warrior since childhood, breast cancer and treatment survivor of four years, (and counting) as well as a spouse, step-parent, cat mamma and a caregiver for elderly parents. I have a lot of passion for cooking and enjoy doing that for my household and people I love.

But that’s just the beginning; I am also an active advocate of my own health and wellness; body, mind and spirit. I believe and respect the need for both modern medicine and alternative, more holistic approaches. I don’t know if I’d even be here without both!

I write about and share things that I love such as recipes, cooking tips, kitchen hacks, essential oils and living and thriving and striving for my best life possible.

You don’t have to have a chronic illness to groove on the things here in my kitchen. In fact, in spite of having RA since early childhood, I have never considered myself to be battling illness but rather striving towards wellness. Won’t you join me?
