I’m very picky about the water I drink and consider it to be an essential component of self-care. We’ve had a variety of water filters over the years that were pretty good but now we have the best solution ever. 

A company called Northern Water Cleaners came and put a filter right on our water supply so now we have highly filtered water from every single tap in the house. It cleans out chlorine, lead, hormones, pharmaceuticals, bacteria and everything else you don’t want to put in your body or on your skin. We even get to shower in our crystal clear water. Plus it tastes amazing!

Check out their website to have a gander at all sorts of interesting FAQ about safe drinking water. You might be surprised by what you learn. I know I was. 

Another cool thing about this company is that they’re working with Reserves to ensure safe drinking water in even the most remote regions. Love it.

I recommend Northern Water Cleaners with all my thumbs up and then some 🙂


Here’s a lovely song that just makes me feel so calm and peaceful. It’s called Honeycomb by Hayden Everett and I have my son, Oakley, to thank for it. It’s so nice to have teenagers in our lives who have varied music interests. They bring so many songs into our awareness that we otherwise wouldn’t know about. 

If you haven’t heard this song, consider me your handy teenager, introducing you to new music.

Listen to Honeycomb on Spotify

Listen to Honeycomb on iTunes

Even just the name of the song makes me so happy. Who doesn’t love a honeycomb with all its geometric gorgeousness?
