Recently we completed a series of interview questions and were asked to name five things we love.  It was a much harder question than I expected.  It's so easy to pick things we love, but how do you narrow it down to just five?!?  So, I thought I'd interject our normal posts with a quick list of things we love (Oprah style!):

~being alive~


~our dogs (holli, maude, cassie, sparky)~

~our bees (too many to name)~

~selling soap at farmers markets and festivals~

~ our garden ~

~ our six acre little piece of heaven ~

~the smell of lavender~

~(almost all) things french~

~the first organic sugar snap pea eaten right off the vine~

~the first organic tomato (most often eaten by the dogs) ~

~rosetta's kitchen (asheville, nc)~

~lan vang (charlotte, nc)~

~sage cafe (chapel hill, nc) ~

~ the quietness of the country~

~the thought of becoming as self-sufficient as possible~

~our customers (of course!)~


What do you love?

(our favorite answer will receive a soap & lip balm gift set!)



I love my family, my bf, hiking through the woods, cheese, and bananas. Interesting list no? :)

I love loud chirpy birds, the wind in my face, goat milk soap, making people smile, and Blackberry cream and walnut frozen yogurt :)

Courtney Eriksen:

I love waking up to a sunrise on a nice day, my two babies (kittens lol), my family, anything to do with outdoors and nature, climbing, improving myself, being informed enough to make good health and lifestyle decisions, gardening, and learning. And I love Belle Terre’s soaps and lip balm :)
