Camping at Echo Bluff State Park

Formerly Camp Zoe and located in Eminence, MO, the beautiful Echo Bluff State Park is a relatively new park with lots to offer by way of accommodations and things to do. Nestled in the Ozarks near several springs, the waters of the Current River flow through this park, providing multiple areas for swimming and fishing, and it is a great place to stay if you are planning a float trip! There are even sightings of wild horses that roam the area!

The Colorwork Playbook

Have you ever wanted to learn crochet colorwork, but don’t know where to begin? If you've hung out around here long enough, you'll know that I'm big on teaching and I LOVE a good cheat sheet. So when Claire of E'Claire Makery told me about her new colorwork resource, I knew I had to share!

Montauk State Park

Inside the park is the spring that combines with Pigeon Creek to form the headwaters of the Current River. It is this spring that gives the water its beautiful green/blue hue. The water is so clear, you can see clear to the bottom of it. If you're a fisherman, this gives you a perfect view of where the fish are.

Two Days at Hawn State Park

This time of year, with the rain and the air starting to warm, everything was just starting to bud and bloom. Hiking the Pickle Creek trail, we saw lots of small waterfalls as the water raced over the rocks. The creek has carved away at the sandstone around it creating beautiful bluffs and rock faces. Though those same rocks made this trail a more difficult trail, but it was worth it to see those bluffs with the creek racing along at the bottom, wildflowers and trees blooming up around the banks.

An Essentially Oiled Machine

While I'm not in the business of selling essential oils, I am a big advocate for them, and in case there are others out there that could benefit from the information, I want to do what I can to help empower others to take control of their health and wellness.
