Finally Pregnant and Carving My First Pumpkin

Finally Pregnant and Carving My First Pumpkin

I had never carved a jack-o’-lantern, ever, until my oldest child was almost 5. Growing up, my mother had always led the charge to carve our pumpkin. It was the one thing about Halloween she enjoyed, and she’d soak and toast the seeds for us. I loved to lick the salt...

‘Boo’ Your Neighbor: A Random Act of Kindness

‘Boo’ Your Neighbor: A Random Act of Kindness

When we were stationed in Hawaii, we lived in what I will always remember as “the best neighborhood ever.” We lived in military housing and it was a very close-knit community with lots of sweet families. When family would come to visit, they would say it...

Born and raised in the Aloha state and a traveling gypsy at heart, Chantel left the nest fresh out of high school and headed off for college in sunny Southern California. Almost a decade later she met and fell madly in love with her hubby who whisked her off to the great Midwest. After five brutal winters in Nebraska, Chantel realized that home will always be where the ocean is (and the snow isn’t), so off to Jacksonville they went, where this Hawaiian girl now spends her days as a stay-at-home wrangler to her two baby bears. Prior to becoming a household CEO, she joyfully spent her time as the Program Assistant Director of a preschool. Digging deep into wellness and health is her jam alongside spontaneous dance parties with her kiddos are what sing to her soul. Chantel is wildly passionate about advocating for her son, who lives with multiple severe food allergies. You can find her out and about on a daily basis as she is a self-proclaimed busy body and loves hitting up the beach or exploring new spots in town while homeschooling her kiddos. If you ever see this fast-paced mama on the go, be sure to say hi because she is always up for meeting new people and making new friends!
