Hey! I’m Kate Sosebee!
Thanks for checking out my blog. I hope you found it useful and you come back for more!
I’m an Air Force Pilot’s wife, a crunchy mama to three small kids, an Essential Oil addict, and a lover of traveling .
Air Force Wife
My husband is active duty in the Air Force – we LOVE the military life. We are currently stationed in Colorado Springs. It is not always easy but it’s our beautiful, messy life. I still have moments (or let’s be honest, days or weeks) when I want him to “get out.” But I don’t think we will anytime soon. The always-moving lifestyle is perfect for me.
Why “Prickly Pilot’s Wife?” I’m originally from the West Coast and I’ve always liked the Prickly Pear cactus. It’s beautiful but also steady against the harsh desert heat. I guess, I feel like I have similarities with the cactus. I am strong and independent to handle what life throws at me. But I am graceful and beautiful as I do it (Or I try to be!). And when choosing a title for a blog, alliterations are always great!
I have not always been crunchy (natural-minded). Before I had kids, I didn’t think twice before popping over-the-counter medications. But after getting
pregnant and nursing, and especially after having an infant on many medications, I started to look for a healthier alternatives. That’s when I found Essential Oils and the crunchy mom lifestyle. We also do other crazy crunchy things like making our own baby wipes, tandem and “extended” breastfeeding, baby-led weaning, and babywearing.
I never planned on homeschooling. Both of my parents are public school educators so it was definitely not something on my radar. But my husband was homeschooled from preschool all the way through high school. It was important that he and I both take a step back and decide what was best for our lifestyle. After much consideration we’ve decided to homeschool our kiddos. You can read my post about why as a military family we’ve decided to homeschool. Right now we are a part of a lovely Classical Conversations community. We absolutely love every minute of it and the kids are learning a lot.
Platinum Wellness Advocate and Leader
I was introduced to doTERRA Essential Oils when my daughter was just a few months old. I signed up with the Family Physician’s Kit as a Wellness Advocate. I got my oils and within only a few weeks of having them in my house, I decided to build a business with doTERRA. I haven’t looked back. It’s been an amazing experience. My job is to help other moms and dads take care of their babies with essential oils. We’ve been able to double our family income and I do it all from home! I’m a Platinum Wellness Advocate and doTERRA Leader. I am only excited for the possibilities my future holds in this company! You can read more about my Journey to Platinum here.
Find a Wellness Advocate
I am in Colorado but my team is nationwide. I have many team members in Georgia, Michigan, and Delaware but also all over the world. I can help you with essential oils or I can help you find Wellness Advocates all over the nation and even internationally.
I’ve worked hard to teach myself how to better feed my family, better care for my family’s ailments with herbs, workout to keep fit, and to see the world while we are doing it.
Thanks for reading this to get to know me a little bit better!
