I Won!!!

Thursday, January 26, 2017

I am not the type of person who wins things. Fantasy Football...Bowl Mania...the dream house on HGTV (is that even real, y'all?). But last week my luck changed, and today this beauty arrived: Young Living's ART Skincare System! Thanks for holding that contest, Brittin!


Paying for My Raising - In Oil Currency

Sunday, January 22, 2017

Oh my goodness - I am definitely paying for how I acted when I was younger! Most days I question whether or not I am actually strong enough to get through the tough days, and then I find something familiarly reassuring in the least expected places. I have been diffusing Joy like a crazy person today, and I am literally rationing what's left of my Peace & Calming stash until I can order more. I love my girls with all of my heart, and I am just not sure what I would do without my oils. They keep me going (the girls and my oils!). Speaking of Peace & Calming, anyone who orders a Starter Kit between now and January 31 will get a free bottle of P&C - it's a life changer and an incredible gift-with-purchase! If you want to know more about oils, let me know. I'd love to help you!


In the meantime, I find this article super helpful in maintaining my sanity.

Taming the Nerves

Sunday, January 15, 2017

Love that #10! Jay played in her first volleyball tournament...ever, and I am beyond proud of her determination and excitement! Volleyball is a huge learning curve for me (this recovering soccer mom used lots of Stress Away oil today!)! There's nothing better than watching my girls do what they love.




Cedar Pollen, Be Gone!

Monday, January 9, 2017

This face. This is the face I got every single time I sneezed yesterday (which had to exceed the 500 mark)! Mae did not understand what was going on at all.


I am totally breaking up with cedar pollen - it is just really out of control this year, and I need it to be gone! Thanks to everything I've learned from my sweet friend Kelly, I knew exactly what to do to start taming the beast! I rubbed Thieves oil on the bottoms of my feet and down my spine, and I immediately started diffusing  Purification and Orange - which not only made our house smell completely wonderful, but also calmed my sneezing down to a manageable level. I forgot to take my oils with me to school today (ugghh, it's a Monday), so my allergies got a little bit crazy again this afternoon. When I got home, I added a drop of Copaiba in my Neti pot along with the usual salts, and I feel like a new person! Game changer for me. I honestly can't wait to add two drops of Copaiba to my Neti pot tonight before bed...it's the little things that make a BIG difference!



Winter Break

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

We have had the most amazing winter break! We've stayed up way too late playing board games, being silly, watching movies, and just loving life. Two-thirds of us have also slept in way too late. I'm talking noon, or maybe even a little later (which has allowed one-third of us to be super productive int he mornings!)! Bedtime tonight will be a bit of a struggle for all three of us, but I know using Peace & Calming and Valor on our wrists and a drop of Cedarwood on our big toes will help us relax into a wonderful night's sleep so we are ready to make big things happen tomorrow and for the rest of 2017! I'll probably diffuse some lavender just for good measure. If you ever want to know more about essential oils and how they've helped our little family, please reach out. I'd truly love to help.
