HUUUUUGE NEWS THE STARTER KIT IS CHANGING! And let me tell you, it's a HUGE UPGRADE! Back in 2015, Valor and Peace & Calming, two of YL's most famous and sought-after oils (which were a part of my very first beloved starter kit), were removed from the kit. We were bummed but understood sourcing issues and sustainable, ethical farming practices. Today, THEY'RE COMING BACK! If you're new to these oils, here's a little bit about them: ………………………………………………………………………………….. VALOR: - A blend of Spruce, Rosewood, Blue Tansy, and Frankincense (a great way to get Frank into your daily routine for CHEAP!). Google the benefits of those oils and prepare to have your mind sufficiently blown. It gets me so pumped! - It's one of the most popular scents. Amazing amazing amazing for smell alone! - Referred to as a "chiropractor in a bottle" because of how we feel it aligns our bodies and minds - Stop pesky snoring by putting 1 drop on the big toe! - Promotes feelings of bravery. Mamas, this is huge for little ones. We use it in sleepy cream and "monster spray" for kiddos who struggle with fear at bedtime. Also think: first day of school, dance recital, big soccer game, test-taking days, trying something for the first time, airplane flights, kids in daycare or at church nurseries who are afraid without you, anything where an anxious heart could use a little help. - Helps with occasional soreness! Runners, swimmers, pogo-stick jumpers, this one's for you. Add it to some PanAway and Copaiba in a cream.... it's good. - Is a gorgeous blue color! ………………………………………………………………………………….. PEACE & CALMING: - A gentle, sweet blend of Ylang Ylang, Orange, Tangerine, Patchouli, and Blue Tansy. And people lose their crap over it FOR GOOD REASON! - Diffuse this oil to freshen the air, especially in rooms where children play or study - Apply to the bottom of feet before bed as part of a bedtime ritual for your whole family - Dilute for a calming back massage before naps or bed - Add 4-5 drops to 1 cup Epsom salt for a calming bath at the start of the day or as part of an evening routine - This is one we do NOT go without! All this magic for just $165!! http://yl.pe/44dv
Oh my sweet heavens. How I ever got so lucky... I don’t know. My team (with a little help from my mom and husband) surprised me yesterday with an afternoon @ninestonesspa ... and then they surprised me again with dinner at @dimillos !! This was the sunrise from our hotel room this am.. I started my Young Living business 2 years ago with a little dream to make some extra money so Darren wouldn’t have to work 2 jobs and we’d have a little more time together as a family... Darren got done that second job pretty quickly.. but it sure hasn’t stopped there. I have found my place in life. I have found my people. The BEST people on this earth. And it just keeps growing and getting better! Your vibe attracts your tribe... my vibe must be pretty good because dang my tribe is just 😍😍😍 Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart... #blessedwiththebest
Jacob asked for a kitty EVERY day for an entire year.... of course, I wanted one too, but his persistence is what really pushed me to get one. It has been so much better than I ever imagined. They LOVE each other. She sleeps with him every night and every nap. When he comes trotting into our room in the morning, she is right behind him. It is the sweetest love and friendship. I love it so very much. ❤️
I bought my starter kit 3 years ago this week!! In the last 3 years, we have transformed as a little family! I knew we’d use lavender and I was curious about thieves... I had no idea we would completely overhaul the toxic chemicals from our home and live this happier, albeit crunchier lifestyle! We are better humans because of Young Living. We sleep better. We eat better. We have had FAR less sickness (like almost 0 in 3 years...). We got a big handle on toddler emotions and have magic oils that rescue any bad mood! We’ve even turned it into a full time income, just sharing what we love with the people that we love! Not to say you have to do that, but it is an option! Life is better. If you want to see for yourself, this little snake oil kit is for sale until 1/14! http://yl.pe/44dv
My dad took me to lunch. ❤️ Choosing to be as present as a possibly can this year.. forever, I hope. I spread myself so thin last year that I feel like I lost actual months of my life... I’m going to practice saying no. No, to things I don’t actually want to do. No, to things that don’t fill my cup. I’ve never been good at saying no.. it’s a big goal. And praying for a million more lunch dates with my handsome dad. Also, there is no way I can stop my project.. it totally fills my cup. So, here we are again... 2/365
Learning how to ice skate be like... 364/365
They each picked out their own cake.. we danced. We laughed. We watched movies. Played with all the new toys. It was a pretty great day. As I tucked them in I asked what their favorite part of the day was? And they all agreed it was being all together as a family. ❤️ #myheartcantkeepup 360/365
“It’s the oldest story in the world. One day you’re seventeen and planning for someday. And then quietly and without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And that someday is yesterday. And this is your life.” -Nathan Scott My words fail me tonight for just how grateful I am that God gave me more than what I wanted, and instead trusted me with what I really needed. On this Christmas night... on the eve of all of the magical birthdays of my loves. I am emotional. I am overflowing with gratitude and love. Liam (my first by 2 minutes). You are my greatest teacher. You are magic. You would give your shirt straight off your back if that would serve someone... I’ve seen it. You are so much more than anyone knows and I am secretly so thankful that you just share that with me sometimes. I couldn’t be anymore proud. Or thankful. God knew exactly what he was doing when he gave you to me. Nicholas. You are so stubborn. Holy moly, you have taught me more than patience... you have taught me more than all 20 years of school taught me! You are my clone... the most Stevens in this house. And I can’t believe you’re mine. Jacob... GAH. You have a voice of a complete angel. I could listen to you all. Stinking. Day. You are the boss. But, also compassionate, loving and thoughtful. You have given us more joy than we can count and I am so very thankful for you. Six year old twins and a four year old baby in the morning... please time... slow down. ❤️❤️❤️ 📷 @mainetinkerphotography
Christmas Morning... All the toys, all the Christmas movies, all the Kerry jerseys, and all the hot whiskeys. Hoping Santa got me some new curtains.
Since it’s Christmas Eve... and we just love keeping things spicy... we put an offer on a pretty piece of land today in Freeport. Say a little prayer for the Carey’s! Eeeeeeeek!!! ❤️🌶🎄
I am the most decisive person I know... maybe to a fault. When I make a decision, consider it done. But. This season of life. This weird, uncertain, uncomfortable, upside down season of life has been hard on me. Maybe the hardest season I’ve ever stepped into. I know God’s plan is always better than my own... but being out of control is hard for my red personality. Next week is the craziest of the year. Christmas. ALL THE BIRTHDAYS. (Did you know all my kids were born on 12/26??). ALL the emotions. But. This guy. He is my rock. He is the calm after the storm. My very best decision. Thankful everyday for this guy. ❤️
Well. Nicholas wouldn’t get in this year.... so. Well all got in! Thanks @sjlabonte for the shot! Liam belts out “Santa we want 3 ground pounding transformer dudes!!” And Santa reply’s “of course my boy!” UMMMM... ANYONE KNOW WHAT THAT IS????? Asking for SANTA?!
I’ve got one GORGEOUS Premium Starter Kit wrapped and ready to go! Whoever messages me first gets it! I will even deliver this weekend if you’re local! This will be the BEST gift under your tree this year! $160... a crazy steal for an amazing and healthy new year! ❤️
We got a new little ball of fluff over the weekend.. the boys are totally smitten with her. I overheard Jacob saying “I just love her” to which Nicholas replied “why don’t you just marry her”.... 😹😻
