One of the things I get asked ALL the time is “why is Young Living different?” People want to know why they can’t use oils off the shelf at the grocery store or from Amazon.
Besides the fact of how YL chooses their seeds, own their own farms, chooses beyond organic land to grow on, ensures the correct time to harvest, including the correct time of year to harvest, they also are in complete control of their distilleries.
No other company owns farms or distilleries. NONE. They all get their oils from brokers. YL is in complete control with their farms and partner farms. When it’s tested (multiple times), if it’s not right, it’s not used. Period. No question.
Inspired by some local flea markets and book pages, these large canvas prints have been added to the shop and are both perfect everyday inspiration. If you are looking for a memorable gift, or something that will complete a room, these beautiful canvas pieces are the perfect way to tie everything together while adding something meaningful.

We went out for sushi, just the two of us, for lunch while Elizabeth was in daycare. Nothing fancy, no big deal, but it was.
You are so incredibly smart, beautiful and determined.
You know no limits and amaze me everyday with your curiosity and wonderment of the simple beauty the world holds.
I hope we give you the space and acceptance to become whoever you wish to be, and the guidance to listen to your intuition.
My wish for you is that you are kind.
Kind to yourself, kind to others and kind to those who are very different from you.
I love you baby girl.

I started out just trying two Young Living Essential Oils to see if I liked them. I was a new mom, and desperate for quality products for my home, my baby and my family. I quickly used them up. I decided to dive in and purchase a starter kit, because I knew I would save the most money that way.
Let me be clear…when I purchased my starter kit I told my friend who sold it to me (who is also a nurse at the Birth center where I had my daughter Elizabeth), “I’m so excited about my kit and using it, but there is no way I’m going to sell it. I’ve got three jobs right now and I’m so busy, there is no way.”
This roll-on fragrance is easy to make and my absolute favorite!

Five email address and over 100,000 emails were in my inboxes. Tech clutter. I didn’t even know they were a burden until they had been deleted. This year, 2017, my wish is for less, starting with emails. Less clutter, less stuff, less scheduled activities and more freedom.
I hate to use the word minimalism because it is dramatically overused. However, my desire for less and realization for how much room is left for happiness when there isn’t so much “stuff” is thanks to the minimalism gurus. One of my favorites is Allie Casazza. She keeps it real and is a mom as well so she understands the struggle when comes to the clutter our dear little ones bring along. I highly recommend her free Periscope videos on getting started with the decluttering process.
With Christmas came loads of new “things” and to prevent too much from entering the house I placed all of the new items on the dining room table, grabbed a garbage bag and for each new item put in its place, another item went in the garbage bag for the Goodwill.
It is a start, and I encourage you to also seek out a little less this year!
I’ll be honest, I watched every episode of Fixer Upper during my maternity leave and I got the itch to change things up in the dining room. We really were not using the space because it felt way too formal and stuffy. I decided a dining room “make-under” was in order to make the space more usable. I imagined a place for game nights, kid’s art activities and Sunday breakfasts.
I was also inspired by the book, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. In the book, the author encourages us to only keep items we love and that make us feel good. I realized the previous dining set was not something I loved, more so something I felt obligated to have for those twice a year fancy dinners. I encourage you to also go through the process of ridding your home of things that don’t make you happy or don’t get used-in the end, it feels wonderful!
