Love how this maid of honor’s highlights accentuate this style. If you look closely, you can see my next little hair client waiting for me in the chair in the background of the second photo 😂😍too cute! #flowergirl
Taking a moment to stop and appreciate the beauty of late fall foliage yesterday and to reflect on a sad and poignant weekend.
100th Anniversary Of Armistice Day. Our world political climate is no less complex today than it was at the end of World War l.
Veterans Day and a visit to my aging Vietnam War veteran father and mother. No public celebrations when our drafted vets returned home from this senseless war.
54th Birthday and profoundly sad and lovely memorial service for our beloved LCA teacher Lori Johnson who died on Wednesday. The thousands of students, alums, classmates, neighbors, parents, friends, family, and lovers of literature that attended is a testimony to Lori’s remarkable life well lived (yet heartbreakingly too short). May we all strive to live with just a little bit of the passion and joyful generous and kind spirit that Lori exuded every day. We have been changed for good by your life Lori.
How many of my friends have NOT tried essential oils yet?
I really want to know. Is there a particular reason? I know I thought they were like voodoo, witch craft, hocus pocus....just weird. We used over the counter medicines when needed and suffered through the rest. I've never been a big pill person. And the fact that I'm pretty much always pregnant or nursing makes it hard to take anything anyway! 😂
A few years ago, when I was pregnant, I had an awful respiratory thing going on and it turned to my sinuses, like always. A friend lovingly lent me some of her oils, and that was that. 😍🙌😮 I ordered my starter kit the next week...I was only going to order the 3-4 oils I needed, but the kit was such a great value, it didn't make sense not to order it.
It's been about 4 years of using Essential Oils with my family now. FOUR YEARS! I guess I can say we are hooked. 😍 I tell people all the time, "you need oils in your life." Seriously. Life changed.
I just placed my typical oily order for winter. I have a handful of oils that I WILL NOT be without for winter. That is what prompted me to share with you lovelies. 😙 If you haven't yet experienced the amazingness of oils, can I help you???? I promise, I'm not salesy. At all. I really, truly just believe that every mama of littles needs oils in her home. Especially this time of year! 🤪😥 I would love to help you get started. You can find a link to order your own Starter Kit in my profile.
BUT, I don't want you to just order...talk to me! I will help you figure out what to use and when and on whom. I also have something really special and helpful that I will send you when you order your oils. And a community of moms where we can chat. We can share this natural mama journey together, ok? 🌱🤱 TELL ME: If you use oils, what is your favorite this time of year? And if not, why not?
