Why I Started EB Simply Naturals

Let’s Do This…

So, I decided to start a blog and my deadline for myself is approaching quickly (like in 3 hours because that is midnight)!  What does one do in this day in age when they don’t know where to get started and need some inspiration?  Google, of course.  While here I go typing in “first blog” and proceed to click on a promising link on the subject, these people claim that I need a manual and that they received almost 5k visitors during their first blog post…back up a second.  Hi Mom and Dad!

If you aren’t Martha and David, the two lovely people who conceived and raised me, then let me go ahead and tell you a little about myself.  My name is Elisabeth, I was born outside of Boston, moved to Southern Oregon about 2.5 years ago, and am absurd.  I like to play with my ferrets (Haystack and Wetzel), run, sip on tea that is borderline boiling, spend time doing just about anything in the wilderness, and am a creative old soul.  I work in a special education classroom and aspire to go back to school to become a social worker who helps children become the very best versions of themselves.   

Some of my favorite soaps to date!

My goal here is to entertain you (and me), and to basically just tell my story.  Everybody has a story and a voice, so here is mine.  If I become a social media sensation and do talks at convocations great, but mostly I hope to connect with the people in this crazy world we live in and maybe even make a friend or two.  Enjoy!
