We Have Secrets for the Wind

We are Kim Krause Berg and Arielle Krause, mother and daughter, from beautiful Bucks County, Pennsylvania.  One is just starting out her adult life and the other one has a lot of stories to tell. On a light breezy day you can see the trees leaning in to hear what we have to say.

Well. What a winter it has been. Cold. Dry. Dark. Snow. Snow. Ice. Snow. My body is starting to take a toll. Not only emotionally, but physically. One thing that I always think of when I am feeling lousy is “Detox.”  My body needs a break from all the toxins I expose my body to. So, I figured I would share some words of wisdom about detoxing. What we want to do is cleanse the body to allow it to perform its best. Then other pieces of our life will fall back into balance. Detoxing is just as important as exercising and eating well. If our organs are healthy and working well, they will naturally detox, but sometimes we just expose our bodies to so much yuck, that you need to help it out a bit. ( or a lot, for some of you!) You may need to detox if you ….. Experience breakouts Noticing aging of the skin HaveRead more …

Suddenly my daughter is my clone.  How did that happen?  This new version of me is prettier and has a college degree.  And one boyfriend. Whereas I had %@^@^!!## of the boyfriend traumas, breakups and solid belief that no male would ever love me, she got her boyfriend in high school and they are still together in their mid-20′s. At a recent party a family member remarked that her mannerisms are just like mine and people say we look alike.  I see we have the same nose and she’s slender, like I was a thousand years ago.  We have been to places where we are considered sisters and darned if I’m going to correct that one! What fascinates me is how much she has grown into a mini-me in areas like my love for essential oils, Bach flower remedies, holistic health, mindfulness, organic food and earthy stuff.  Neither of us is afraid to hug trees.  In fact, Arielle is aRead more …

Well, after the catastrophe I had this morning… I definitely needed something to cheer me up. It has been snowing since this morning and there are a few flakes still floating around out there. My car did not like driving on the slippery roads and luckily my work closed and I am back at my apartment safely. After ripping off all of my layers and untying my boots, the first thing that came to my mind was hot cocoa. I began searching for those delicious packets of hot cocoa, only to realize I did not have one lousy packet! Then of course my instinct was to get onto Pinterest and look up a recipe for hot cocoa. After searching for the perfect hot cocoa recipe and digging through my cupboard, I decided to just  make my own concoction. I found my raw cacao bag in my baking drawer. It has never been opened because I did not know what IRead more …

Hi Ya’ll! My name is Arielle. I am a 23 year old, nature loving, hippie girl trying to find her place in this world. Just as a recap of my life right now, I graduated about a year ago, landed an amazing first job, learning amazing valuable lessons that they do not teach you in college and loving every minute of it. (Minus, the recovering college student budget) Thank you student loans and entry level jobs. But hey, I gotta start somewhere. It only gets better from here. And to top it off, I have an amazing guy by my side. He puts up with my craziness, which is awesome. Anyway, lets get to business. My part of this blog will show you that I have a few main interests. And I will share and show you all of my tips, how to’s, stories and more. A few of my favorite things: tea, hiking, photography, farmers markets, coffee shops, soupRead more …

Kim Krause Berg

If you’ve ever sat outside at night time, looked up at the sky and gazed at your surroundings in silence, have you ever wondered what secrets are waiting for you to hear them?  Do you wonder, sometimes, if this is all there is? I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t want to know more.  The topic never mattered as much as the wanting to know.  I wished I was smarter in school, better at sports and happy to be here when I was growing up.  I didn’t understand that my problem was that I had so many questions and nobody had the answers that felt true to me.  Their information was true for them. So in time I asked so many questions and read about so many different things that I formulated the idea that nothing was true and the best I could do was listen to the silence for guidance. When I turned fifty yearsRead more …
