The Soapy Raccoon


Though it is quite obvious…I should bring up the fact that I have not posted on this blog. In. A. Long. Time. There are many excuses that I could use and they’re all good, believable, pardonable excuses. But, I think it best to leave the past in the past. Focus on the “now.” The “Now” being that I just posted something on this blog today. Be proud of me. Be annoyed that you received a notification about this post in your inbox. Remind yourself that if it weren’t for this blog post, you could be doing something very productive right now! But you’re not, and that’s okay. Because you are taking time out of your busy day to read this. And for that I owe you my thanks! Now, onto the post…

Do you want to read about what I got in the mail?

No? Well you’re going to read about it anyway!

I got a Java Nut soap bar from The Soapy Raccoon.

soapaysI know, what an awesome name! lavs

I wish I would have thought of it.

Turns out that a lady named Megan, started up the company to help promote wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, and education in the Mountains of north Carolina. Cool right?

Here is her story:

“I am a volunteer wildlife rehabilitator who cares for injured and orphaned squirrels, rabbits, opossums, groundhogs, and other wild creatures in my home. All of my wildlife receive dedicated care until they are ready for release into their natural habitat. My hope is to use my soaps to help promote wildlife rescue, rehabilitation, and education. “

Having taken care of numerous wild animals (including our squirrel named “Bur” not sure how we ended up calling him that) I thought it interesting that she takes time out of her day to do that as well.

The soap was just lovely. I loved the smell, lather and look of the bar. javanutlather

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Megan & share this awesome soap with you. (even if you can’t smell it.)

When I’m not writing blog post on here (which is almost never) I am editing videos to post to my new YouTube Channel. If you ever find yourself not busy with the many tasks of life, my videos are there to watch. They’re not the most interesting thing in the world to watch but they’re special to me.

Here is a link to my new channel:
