I am ABSOLUTELY HONORED to announce this weeks giveaway good!
So first of all… let me just tell you about my absolute favorite blogger, who is also the first blogger I fervently followed!
My friend Hannah introduced me to Casey’s blog when I was first starting after my senior year in high school. Most of you may not know, but I started my blog the summer before my freshman year in college so it’s been a long time coming! And from humble beginnings… So much of me feels like I just started! When Hannah told me about “The Wiegands,” which is Casey’s blog, I immediately fell in love with her. Her aesthetic, dreams, lifestyle and authenticity were spot on with the direction I saw my life going. I found myself immersed in her words and pictures as I learned her perspective on life, faith, kids, marriage, loss… and was inspired by her art, creative inspiration, fashion style, and projects. To say the least, I was Casey’s biggest fan:)
So how did I go from being a fan to a friend?
Thanks Hannah;) My friend Hannah (the one that introduced us) reached out to Casey and asked if she would write me a personal note with some marriage advice on it, to give to my for my bridal shower gift. Casey said yes!! I gasped in pure joy as I opened up Hannah’s gift and read the framed words of Casey Wiegand speaking to me. Since then we’ve exchanged many more notes of encouragement, advice, and dreams with one another. The woman is incredible.
Jeremy and I look up to Casey and her husband Chris because their story resonates with our future. Chris is a filmmaker, like Jeremy, and we both have a craving to tell stories, travel, build, create, dream, and bring lots of children into this beautiful crazy world. Currently the Wiegands live in Dallas, Texas, but they spent a season of life on the road filming a documentary called “American Blogger,” which is available on iTunes! If you have not seen this, go watch it right after you read this post!
The Wiegands raise their beautiful children, 6-year-old, Aiden, 4-year-old, Ainsleigh and 2 year old, Apple in Dallas in a beautiful home that they recently moved into and are renovating! You can watch “Weekends with the Wiegands” on The Design Network to watch their beautiful home renovations unfold!
Casey is one of the founders of HopeSpoken and also shares her family’s love for Essential Oils over at CaseyLeigh Essentials. Writing and capturing everyday moments are a true passion of hers and being able to share her life and thoughts through her spaces have been an amazing journey so far.

“Last summer I decided I was going to start sharing what our family was doing with Essential Oils and natural products and how it has forever changed our life! It has been so amazing to see a beautiful community form and see young newlyweds, college students, families and mamas benefit from being open handed with our own journey with oils.
Many people think it is overwhelming or intimidating, I have been there! But with a community full of support and resources, it truly feels more like a family!
Many people believe these oils are new & trendy when in reality people have been using oils for such a long time! Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends depending on user experience and desired benefit.
WHAT ARE CARRIER OILS?
Carrier oils are helpful when working with essential oils because it is sometimes necessary to dilute an oil. The carrier oils used should be as natural and unadulterated as possible.
*Always use a carrier oil with small children, babies, and those with sensitive skin.
A few of my favorite carrier oils are:

For beauty month, I wanted to remind people that while watching what goes into our bodies via food is so important, but so is what our skin is “ingesting”. I encourage you to get this app and check out the products in your home. VERY eye opening.
