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 🏖🏝

Convention 2016


   Having SO much fun in Salt Lake City !

Young Living Convention is in Salr Lake and the mountains still have a bit of snow on them.This is only the second time I have been in an airplane. Still amazed about the sites you can see from above. This little lady has come a long ways in the last few years. I’ve gone from a stay at home mom and home educator to running my own business at 60.

One never knows how life is going to go for sure with all the twists and turns. It’s exciting and I am not one that likes to sit and watch the world go by.

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 !


My yard is filled with noise this week.  The Carolina Wren in the Oak tree, the House Wren in the brush and checking out my house I have hung in the Birch tree, the Purple Finch in my Boston fern, the Robin’s nest in the neighbor’s gutter, the Catbirds with their meowing right before bedtime, the Mockingbirds, the Nuthatch with his “yank yank” sounds, the woodpeckers both Downey and Red-headed, and of course the Sparrows, Cardinals, and Bluejays. Throw in the bunny friend I’ve made in the last few days that is gorging himself on my lawn(which is filled with goodies of every kind because I do not spray), and it makes it hard for Puppy and me to peel ourselves away from the activity and blue skies with white fluffy clouds.

Greens for breakfast, lunch and dinner today for one of my sides as the doctor suggested and washing it down with a new kombucha flavor…Celestial Seasonings meyer lemon ginger YUM!!! Retiring with a new yoga dvd and waking up to a fresh page of life to color as I wish tomorrow.

More like photograph but you know what i mean 🙂
