hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

“Oils” Night

“Oils” Night

My friend Sheri is an essential oils guru, and she convinced me to get a young living start-up kit so I could understand what was behind her love affair with Frank(incense). Long story short, I bought the kit at the end of August or September and since then we’ve been talking about having an “oils night” so she could teach me how to do AllTheThings. 

Tonight was that night! And after being at my house for 3.5 hours, as she packed up her things to leave, she said, “Oh my gosh, we didn’t even talk about oils!” 

I hadn’t even noticed. 😳 

We has such good conversation, ranging from dream interpretation to psychics to Hannah’s Prayer to Jesus to the Bible’s mysteries to The Chronicles of Narnia in publication order  (which, by the way, I’m excited to say I’m re-reading!) that I forgot the premise for her visit. 

A bottle of wine, a bowl of guacamole, half a pan of cranberry sauce, and a bag of chips later, I’m going to say that my joyful moment was her showing me this video. But it was really the whole night. But this video!!!!!! 

Mom and Dad: this is my early Christmas gift to you. It gave me goosebumps

Side note: I got two pieces of happy news from two separate people in my writing group that literally made me fist pump. Praying for the Lord’s hand to be upon them!
