About Me


My name is Monica. I’m a mama, culinary school student, freelance editor, and a lover of Jesus. I have the privilege of raising my three sweet kiddos, Parker, Nolan, and Avery.

I’ve lived in the chicagoland area for nine years, although I’m a California native. I love God, my family, people, home-making, traveling, reading, cooking from scratch, crafting, quilting, all things natural, and trying to be healthy.

My love for health, helping people, and staying home with my kids has led me to Shaklee. A company that’s passionate about creating healthier lives through trustworthy products. I’m a health consultant and distributor — visit my Shaklee website to find out more.

  1. Hi Monica! It’s your (step) cousin Kevi! It’s been such a great long while since I have seen you. Bonnie pointed me to your blog since I have a newborn (6 weeks old now) that I am cloth diapering with. After some research and trial and error I came across a great diaper that is working well, so it was more the diaper cleaning do-dads, if you will, that I found most useful, so far! I love the pleated purse design, but I am not much of a seamstress, yet… Also, one of my baby gifts was the cute hooded towel you have a tutorial here for. I have a little sewing machine I plan to get running soon and a few small projects in mind. Maybe I will come back around to try out the purse when I get some practice under my belt. In the meantime, thanks for the lovely blog. Nice to see your face here. If you’ll send me an email and I will send you a few photos of my little one, Thea.
