Back at the Lakeside Ranches

We are happy to be back up at the Lakeside Ranches (Inverness, Fl). We moved from Tampa to Inverness about a year ago. Now that the kids are getting older we are keeping them busy with Ranch chores- feeding the horses and taking care of the animals. We just started Pony camp for Summer 2019. The boys are now camp counselors and they help the younger campers with Pony care. It is a great summer at the Ranch.

Natural Bug Spray

What are the best natural Bug Sprays available on the market? Before Hurricane Irma and Maria hit Florida in September we hurried to stock up on supplies before we had to evacuate S. Tampa. We live in Flood zone A. There was a mandatory evacuation pretty early on for flood zone A. I love the homemade bug repellent option - but we had little time [...]

Healing an Umbilical Granuloma Naturally

My daughter was born August 2014.  I was the happiest Mom on the planet.  The labor was only 3-4 hours and the delivery was nice and easy (a first for me).  The essential oils and chiropractic care really made a difference this time around.  I did have her in a hospital and I did get the epidural after my water broke at 6 centimeters.  No [...]
