Hello There…I’m Still Here!


It’s been a while.

But I wanted to say I am blogging weekly on my website . These photos are from a mini post about a Cedar Rose tea recipe.

It seems silly to maintain two websites and blogs. However, since it’s been around since 2007 it has a lot of traffic and reach. I still get people contacting me through here seeking herbal support, I don’t want to leave people hanging.

BTW I still live in Portland, and I am a mother of two kids – as of pandemic times they are 5 1/2 and 2 1/2. Yes, never a boring day with little kids around here. I am with them almost full time – normally they go to preschool two days a week and my husband Rob holds down the fort for me to work on Saturday and sometimes evenings.

But that’s not the only reason I stopped writing on here. I was very ill with a chronic Lyme infection that became very acute and disabling in September 2018. For about 3 months I was bedridden most of the time with symptoms of joint dysfunction and pain, recurrent migraines with vomiting and POTS (intense dizziness).

For the following 6 months I was bedridden about 1/3 of the time – by then the migraines stopped with the help of some Chinese herbs, so it was joint dysfunction, POTS and, as I started killing the Lyme, lots of infections and illnesses to address. Whoa – it was intense.

The following months were better in some ways but worse in others. Healing is hard sometimes, folks.

Now, as of May 2020, I am more stable and see my health is slowly improving.

All this is to say I’ve been preoccupied. But now I am thinking of the future and how I can be of service.

I may move the content from this site over to my website. I don’t know.

Let me know what you think.

2020 blogging is sure different from 2007. Social media has taken over, but I still like the process of publishing a post the good old fashioned way.

Best to you all,


PS send me an email anytime. I’d love to hear from you.
