Anyone into family history?! 🙋🏼 It’s amazing what things you can learn about your relatives just by searching for them. As a family, we decided to venture down town today and look around for distant family members. We came across my third Great Grandfather’s headstone today and didn’t realize he was a veteran and served in the civil war. Pretty cool.
Do you have connections with families who have served in the military or are still serving? If so, tag them here so we can say THANK YOU!! With Memorial Day right around the corner I want to honor someone who has lost a loved one while in service... if you know of someone who has experienced this that might be willing to share their thoughts, please DM or email me (or have them do so)! I’d love to hear their story of faith, love, and service.
Ollie couldn’t wait to see his cousin shake her little tail feather on stage in her first dance recital. We are so proud of this sweet little lady and love her to pieces.💕 #dancingqueen#familysupport#cousinlove
My essential oil journey has never fall short of interesting experiences! Ever since my trip to the helichrysum farm in Croatia last October, I’m now in Doha, waiting for the transit flight to Sofia, Bulgaria, where i will be able to experience the annual rose festival (harvest)!!!!🌹🌹🌹 Although I still have a good 5 hours wait here and then 8 hours before I will arrive in the rose valley, I’m already excited!💖💖 Will be soaking in Rose delight for the next 8-9 days, this is too good to be true! So grateful to my extra sweet hubby to make this possible for me and help to take care of the kids and everything at home! .

Life has been super crazy lately....
April 14th one week after my brother got married-. My mother was diagnosed with stage 2 endometrial cancer. This is super cliche, but this woman is my absolute hero. Everything I am- I thank her for challenging me to be better. This is a woman who has sacrificed everything- her own happiness, hopes, and dreams to make sure her family has the best chance to thrive. I can’t possibly thank her enough and yet I feel like I haven’t even tried. Over 15 years ago she underwent brain surgery and lost a lot of her physical abilities. I think about how back then I could’ve been a better daughter, if we were a better family then maybe.... this wouldn’t had happened. It’s hard not to blame myself and think about the positives. It’s almost impossible to see the silver lining when these kind of things happen to amazing people like her. I question everything and my mind and heart fills with doubt.
But...I know I can do better. For her. For my family. For my husband. For my friends. Here’s my silver lining: I get a second chance. WE get a second chance. To be better people to the people you love. Our time here is finite, we should make meaningful memories, beautiful connections, hilarious encounters, and days that are filled with smiles. And for the days that are filled with tears and mourning we should remember that you helped create those beautiful moments that will last forever. My mom is and will be a warrior. She will fight this and she will get better. So we will find a way....we always have. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼
If you know me you know this is my team.
Tonight’s viewing will be a bit different to 13 years ago.
But! I’ve made the silly bets, I’ve rounded up my cousin (& and let’s face it he’s pretty much my big brother). We’re going to the pub. Neither of us drink anymore but I can guarantee I will lose my voice 25 minutes into the match.
So 3 out of 4, 13 years on really nothing has changed much.
Here’s hoping for the same result!
My mom's go to essential oils blend
My mom would by oils to help my business out...
I would visit and say mom you haven't even tried/moved the bottle!
So eventually she would end up giving me everything she ordered.
We went through a sad family event
I added Stress Away and Lavender on her throughout
She said it was helping.
But one day at work during a super stressed time she had it!
She was beyond stressed
She grabbed the Stress Away
Called me and she was in love
Now my mom is a hoarder with the greatest stress release on earth
From the Earth!
Thank you Gary Young!
We miss you and love you so!
