Being thankful and paying it forward
Happy thanksgiving! This year has been an amazing year in so many ways. I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Iris in February on a very cold day and got to experience the joy of motherhood for the first time, I spent another season volunteering with Operation Fruit Rescue Edmonton (OFRE), picking fruit and helping people get registered as fruit pick volunteers and fruit growers, and I have begun to shift my business in a way that more greatly reflects what I am about and what I want to share with the world. For all of these things I am very thankful and joyful, so I have something special to share with you. From now on, I am going to do something to pay it forward to spread the joy I have felt all year. How will I do this? Starting this fall, I will be sharing my recipes with my products! Why? I want to pay it forward and encourage you all to make easy herbal medicine recipes at home with local ingredients from your gardens, river valleys, etc. I have learned from so many other people who were generous enough to share their knowledge, expertise, and skills with me, which has helped me to get to where I am today. So, it's time for me to pass on some of that knowledge along with some joy and hopefully inspire you. What are you thankful for this year?
