DIY Orange Creamsicle Sugar Face Scrub | Young Living Essential Oils

Some homemade gifts this month were made using some of my favorite Young Living Essential Oils..  They smell amazing, leave your skin baby soft, and best of all they are products that you can trust!

So easy to make, and fun too.  I picked up some mason jars w/ colorful rubber seal lids at our local Meijer store..  Added some twine tied in a bow, and printed off the recipe labels using the online Avery template.

1/2 c Coconut Oil
3/4 c White Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
10 drops Orange Oil

This seriously smells like an orange creamsicle pop!

Ashlyn | First Lost Tooth

This girl couldn’t have possibly been more excited to lose her first tooth.  She has been telling us for moths that a tooth was wiggly.  We’d oblige and check, and reassure her that “no, honey, they’re all fully intact”..   I think she was determined enough that, she got one loose!

6 years old, and super excited to be semi-toothless:)

My Mother’s Day 2015

I always say there are things you never realize you’ll say, that is until you’re a mommy…   “Son, put your penis away”, “Why is the honey in the bathroom?”, “Okay, let’s have treats before dinner, but just this once”..  And the list goes on.

Truly one of the most difficult, patience challenging roles I’ve had in my entire life, but by far the most heart swelling, and rewarding.  Not a single day goes by that I don’t hear, “I love you, mommy”.. I couldn’t ask for more.

God’s Plan

I came across this video today, and just had to share it… Seriously beautifully spoken words, and a beautiful testimony of faith.

I recently had an absolutely wonderful conversation w/ a man working at our local Lowes store.  He initially asked if I needed help w/ anything.  I soon learned that we attend the same church, and after answering a couple electrical questions, we shared a great conversation about God’s plan for our lives, faith, and Christianity.  My new friend was a breath of fresh air on that random Saturday evening.  It was a blessing to have met & talked w/ him.  Couldn’t have been more apparent of God’s plan & timing.
