Trip to Cali 


This was only the third time I’ve flown on a plane… and I have never been to California 😳

My daughter and I went to a Young Living Essential Oil Beauty School and had a great experience.

Leaving wintery Missouri and stepping into a land of green and flowers 🌺 was amazing.

Flying into L.A. at night was wild. So many lights so many people.

I’m living in the wrong part of town. 😃

A beach should be my front yard always and forever 🏖🏝

The Gift of Health


There are a lot of things to ask for or hope for during this time of year.  Peace on earth always comes to the front, health and happiness follow close behind.  I have found as I get older that things have lost their glitter for me and connections with people are more valuable.  Yes like most Americans I would like to be more comfortable but sometime there is never and end to how much  comfort is enough.  There  is always more to get.

I would love to travel more, spend more time with my grandchildren, donate more time or financial help to animal shelters and shelters for battered women or those caught in human trafficking.

This is also a time of year when for some of us it has turned from a joyous time of year to a stressful time or darkness due to loss of relationships or just change in general.

I like to evaluate my days more frequently now since I had a mile marker birthday this year.  Time is fleeting.  I want to condense my time into a capsule rather than a glass of water.

Do you make resolution or plans on how to start the new year?  I always do. It helps me with goals and growth.  My health has been on the top of the list after struggling with some areas that have caused me to slow down a bit.  This year I am going to add focusing on guarding my heart because it takes time to recover from an injured heart.

I hope to post every week next year at least once a month for sure.   I started using essential oils last year and they have been a big help for me with my emotions and my immunity.  I will share some of my recipes and experience in the weeks to follow.

I will leave ya a pic of one of my favorites…..Liberty and wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happier healthier New Year!



FAll is in the air


As much as I love fall I hate to see summer leave.  I love to be outdoors and the winter months just plague me.  Yes I could bundle up and endure but just haven’t spent the money to get those things I would need to feel more comfortable in the Midwest.  That’s goin’ to have to change.  I also hate all the cooties that fly around.  It seems once kids get in school and the holidays come around somebody is always sick around me.  I am prepared this year for that since I have come across some fantastic oils in the last year.  I love the Thieves line for helping me to maintain a strong immunity against such things.  I try to drink more water and it helps for me to put one of the Young Living citrus oils in there to give it a healthy boost. I have been drinking one of their supplements called NINGXIA.  It has really been a benefit to me for energy and to think a bit more clearly.  It is a high antioxidant drink. I have a few diffusers that I use daily and try to maintain a 80/20 diet of healthy foods.I am afraid I am not so disciplined to hold to a 100% healthy lifestyle.  Plus I have to have my health to KEEP UP WITH THREE GRANDSONS!!!!!  Leavin’ some info. below about some of the products I have been using in the last year. Please contact me for questions you might have in joining me as a member with Young Living or any questions about how I have radically changed my lifestyle to promote a healthier ME.ningxia  310668987_735904526493569_3403702028415967100_othieves4407850170_b3c209f68e_n

Essential Oils



In the last year I have added to my healthy lifestyle by incorporating oils into my life.  I chose Young Living because they are the only ones that have a Seed to Seal guarantee on their oils and they are 100% oil. I began diffusing and replacing my candles and had not considered using them really for anything else at the time.  As I learned about how they can help maintain a healthy body I became more interested.  The quality is amazing! This company is passionate about producing a quality product. In the next few months I am going to focus on living a healthy life and how it is important to include the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical sides of us not leaving one out.  That makes for a well rounded person.


I am amazed at the ability oils have.  When diffusing or smelling the oils they reach the brain in 20 seconds.  I have a very emotional personality so I use them a lot for calming and sleeping.


Here is some ideas for use in a diffuser.  Some oils can be applied to the skin or taken internally.  Right now I am focusing on a diffuser because it is the most gentle way to introduce oils to a person who has never used them before.


Young Living is running a special until the end of the month for some of their starter kits.  There is a choice of three diffusers.  If you are not a member they are giving you $10.00 off a starter kit.  This is where I began my journey.  I got a diffuser (at the time to replace my candles) and a 11 oils, sample packs, Ningxia ( a fantastic drink that I take daily for energy) and sample bottles to carry some of the oils with you or share with others.The price is reduced from what it would cost you if you bought everything separately.  Please contact me if you are interested in joining this fantastic company.  I have just come back from convention and they have released many new products from when I first joined.  One in particular is a dinosaur diffuser that I bought for my grandsons.  So cute!


Cheers to a happy, healthy year !
