My everyday essentials πŸŒΏπŸ’› Also cant get enough of this roller blend that was gifted to me by my sweet friend Abigail when I first started Young Living! A mix of lavender and cedar-wood that gives a beautiful calming scent. 🌸 That's what's in my bag πŸ’― of the time! What's in yours!?

I'm ready for another pool day! 🐳I kid with my husband that moving to an apartment suits me because it's like living at a resort, and if you know me Im a sucker for resorts! πŸ˜‚ Especially if I'm blessed with a pool view room and gym right in front of me for daily access πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ͺπŸΌπŸ™ŒπŸΌ #Godisgood

Lavender chamomile with my boo thang before bed tonight πŸ’œ Love these sweet moments with him after Linus is snuggled in bed and we're winding down for the night. Nothing like a good cup of tea, a great convo, and belly laughs with your husband! ❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️

Now that I have my own dining room I'm sprucing up certain things here and there πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Im definitely going to re-vamp these black chairs that aren't really capturing the look I'm going for.πŸ™ˆπŸŒΏ I'll hopefully get to them this weekend but I'll make sure to show you all the finished product! Also, speaking about re-vamping, have you checked out my newly designed website yet? If you haven't been following along my insta-stories I had been working on a new design for my website and I also added a new page that briefly describes my essential oils journey!! It's a completely whole new look that I believe describes me a little bit more! Definitely wanted to put more of my personality in my site. I believe that's key when trying to brand yourself and your business! I am definitely one to get lost in the sea of inspiration of other bloggers and Instagramers but it's important to find our individual voice, look, and brand and run with it!! 🌸 It's definitely okay to be inspired but don't lose sight of you cause YOU is awesome! πŸ’›πŸ’›And there is no one like you!πŸ™ŒπŸΌ So any-who, go check it out all you lovely people!!! πŸ’ƒπŸ» Link in my bio! πŸ‘‰πŸΌ

Had a fun time last night at Americas Children charity event! My husband did an amazing job on percussion along with the rest of the band. The music was my fav part as well as the food!! Anyone here ever had a Burmese dish? It was my first time and I had a delicious spiced rice with lamb πŸ™ŒπŸΌ sooooo gooood you guys!!!! Love trying ethnic foods from around the world. I also got a few posing tips from some Hollywood photographers πŸ˜‚ Who knew there was a science to posing on a red carpet! Such a fun time with friends for a great cause πŸ’›πŸ’› Swipe to see all the pics!

β€œThe grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God remains forever.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:8‬ ‭ If Gods word is what will remain now and hereafter, shouldn't we take to heart the importance of being in it constantly? If at the end of the day all that matters is Gods word and what we are doing with it then our priorities would shift and making time to be with Jesus wouldn't be a job but a priority and something we look forward to. I'm not saying to put our families or our jobs on the back burner because those are gifts and responsibilities from God, but just as we make time for those responsibilities we need to make time for our spiritual responsibilities. We all can fall into distractions, but it is what we do with what we now know at this moment that will be the deciding factor. What will you do today? Make sure to make that time to read because today is a day we will never get back. Make the most of it with Jesus on your side! 🌸🌿❀️

It's been a while since Ive posted and I know I keep saying that but our weeks have been full of unpacking, acquiring furniture, and relaxing! So to say the least it's been a refreshing time away from social media. As a mom-prenuer social media can sometimes become one of those stressors in life that you definitely need a little time away from! Whose with me? πŸ™‹πŸ» Speaking of stress, these are probably the two oils that have gotten me through the last couple of weeks and the ones I've been using the most often! On my wrists, chest, and diffused πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Talking more about these two life saving oils in my story so go check it out as well as some #TSJhome updates! 🏑πŸ‘ͺ

Some good breakfast this morning with my little family πŸ‘ͺ We were all craving pancakes today (and Linus eats EVERYTHING) so we had to stop by Mimi's Cafe for their buttermilk griddle cakes. Soooooo good! On another note, I'll be updating y'all today on my insta story about our move and our new apartment! So stay tuned πŸ€—πŸ‘

Dr. Appt today and this was his trooper face πŸ™πŸΌ Linus seems to have picked up a virus which is why he has not been feeling well these past 5 days. He had a loss of appetite, fevers, and lots of sleepless nights. If you can keep him in prayer family that would be a huge blessing. He does seem to be getting better and getting his appetite back but this viral infection gave him a sore mouth. It seems like the worst part is over and now it's just a matter of time before it completely goes away. Praying he will be back to his normal happy self soon! πŸ’™
