My Village

Welcome to my village! I've become a big believer in living a clean lifestyle that includes loving the environment you live in. Not only is eating clean food important but living in a peaceful, happy, and clean home and environment is essential to being your best self.

I love where we are.  My family and I live in a great walking neighborhood where people are pretty friendly and helpful. On nice days my son and I walk to his school as it is within the vicinity.  I also love that there are beautiful, unique looking parks in our neighborhood and a cute shopping area with a nice eatery.  Soon to come our way are a pool and club house which were at first not in the plans but because folks here raised their voices we are getting more amenities to enhance our beloved community.

So far this is my favorite place to live. We've gone through four moves in the past six and half years and to be frank moving so constantly is an added stress. It was a lot to maneuver especially with a newborn.  I believe it's one of the reasons for my debilitating fatigue. When stress attacks and the body cannot handle the load the body stops functioning in normal capacity. It starts to shut down and that's what happened to me along with reoccurring episodes of shingles, vitamin deficiencies, and gut issues.

I am learning to avoid stressful situations.  It's quite damaging to the spirit and it takes a toll on the immune system.  For me I do my best to live in the present and to have faith.  

My village feels like living in the woods -- so quiet and serene.  This place reminds me of the book Walden.  If you have never read it, it's a must read.  This place is really planned like a village as the homes are designed to be close to one another and the lots are not so large.  We are encouraged to walk as the mailboxes are located in a shared area. There's a real community developing here in which I think it's a great place to make wonderful memories.  Feed yourself the best clean food possible and make sure you love where you live.  You owe it to yourself and your family. 

Not only is eating clean food important but living in a peaceful, happy, and clean home and environment is essential to being your best self.
