Hi friends! I’m Holly Perona and welcome to my blog. I live in Ca with my husband and 3 babies! I was in desperate need of a creative outlet so here we are! If you stop by you’ll probably find me talking about my children, faith, painting, DIY attempts, my love for essential oils or road trips! My dream is to live on a little farm or at least have a bunch of animals. We already have a pet cow so that’s a start :)

I have a kindergartner!!

I can’t believe my baby girl is going to be starting kindergarten this fall. Everyone always says to enjoy every moment because it goes by fast and I knew that would be true but I never imagined it would go THIS fast. I have tried to be intentional about being in the moment (although I fail at this daily) over the past 5 years. I knew she was going to

Some of my best memories..

I know there is a way to move my old blog posts over to the new site…but I have no idea how to do it. I used to be so tech savvy…I don’t know what happened..technology has gotten too complicated for me!! I’m going to recreate some of my fav posts on here because I love the memories and want to have them to look back on. I love blogs

How to easily grow succulents!!

I LOVE plants. I especially love plants that are easy to grow. If it was up to me I would have a huge garden full of beautiful flowers . The rental house we live in right now has a pretty big yard that came pre-landscaped. Besides the Iris flowers the rest is basically shrubs. I do have a collection of my favorite potted plants though…SUCCULENTS!! Seriously, succulents are the cutest

Why I am starting a blog!

Hi! I’m Holly and welcome to my blog!! I started a blog awhile back and had no idea what I was doing. I still don’t…but I have been researching a bit more and think I’m a little more organized this time around. Apparently starting a blog that says .wordpress.com at the end is a big no no?? I love reading other’s blogs and always thought it sounded really fun to

How to make all natural Easter egg dye!!

I feel like when people use natural dye on their Easter eggs they get the most unique & beautiful colors!! This year I decided to finally try it myself. I also picked up one of the standard egg dying kits from Target that I will do with the kids. This egg dying project was just for me and I loved it! I didn’t have any formal instructions to follow and

Picking wildflowers & making wishes

Today we got to go out to our property for a little while so Tom could finish up some things he’s been working on. There is a pile of sand out there that the guys have been using with the electrical stuff but to the kids it’s a magical sand castle! Today they told me there was a giant spider on their sand and sure enough there was a huge

How to care for Irises

I have always liked to act like I have green thumb. I love gardening and planting flowers but I still have a lot to learn about keeping stuff alive. That’s the best thing about gardening..you don’t have to be an expert to get started. I just came across an article the other day that was talking about how gardening can actually cause physiological changes in your  body that make you

How to get stains out without chemicals!

When I first started using Young Living products I just wanted the lavender to help me sleep. I diffused oils day and night. I loved them, but never once went on the website to check out what else they offered. Huge mistake! After I was running low on my oils I hopped on the website and was shocked to find there are TONS of other products. Most of the products

Everyone needs a pet cow!

Ballerina Unicorn Moo Moo. That is the name of our new family pet. Ellie had the honor of naming her and she actually tried to add Little Mermaid to the end, but I convinced her the name was perfect how it was. So we loaded her up in the back of my suburban… We have a couple of cows out on our property and were planning on selling them after
