February Flew By

Can you believe it is already February 28?! I feel like I blinked and this month is gone.

At the beginning of February, I was moved out to jail court! So instead of going to the courthouse for work everyday, I go to the jail. I packed up all of my things, loaded them all into a pliable chariot (Costco’s fancy name for a wagon) and off we wheeled!

One of the first things I grabbed was my diffuser and purification oil, because I was sure that an office on the inside of the jail was going to be gross and terrible.. but its not! It is great, I love the people and the office (which is 2 desks and 1 couch larger than my last office!) I DID wipe down every surface with lemon oil and ran purification for at least a week, cause safety..

I like the opportunity to confer with defense attorneys in my office. Every time someone walks in they say.. mmm, what is that smell. OILS. it is always oils. It gives me the opportunity to explain the amazing benefits of purification or stress away! Every attorney in the world could use these (insert busy attorney joke here..)

Stay tuned!


A New Journey: Young Living

Hi friends! I know it’s been so long since I have updated our life! Oh my gosh, so much has happened.

First off, WE PASSED THE BAR! Then we went to Europe (check out our travel blog to look back on our adventure!) for like three MONTHS. amazing. We got ENGAGED! and MARRIED! We are now back state-side, working in San Antonio, living our life. So you see why I haven’t had time to blog! Recap: Bar, Europe, Engagement, Jobs, Wedding. YAY!

So. Why am I back, making time for this update? Because I started down a long windy beautiful road known as OILS. Oh. My. Gosh. When Michael and I started dating he would try to get me to experiment with oils.. but at the time I was still all about that spaghettio’s and boxed wine life, he could barely drag me into a whole foods. I know, crazy to think about. #pinnacleofhealth but as time went on, he wore me down.. and I liked them, they smelled nice.. he was right, whatever. Plus, wine in a bottle is the way to go.

Fast forward to present day! Connoisseur of whole foods, red wine, and anything outdoorsy. A few months ago (probably  longer) my beautiful sorority sisters started posting about oils. How they clean with them, how much they’ve helped their health.. you get the idea. Of course, always obstinate, I rolled my eyes at them.. lavender and eucalyptus oils smelled nice and peppermint oil was a nice way to make a cold compress, but I didn’t need whatever they were peddling.

After arguing that my whole foods oils were the best out there, I decided to compare. Boy, was I wrong. I finally gave in and drank the kool-aid in January. New year, new me? Well, maybe same old me but a balanced, healthier, happier, well-rested version. Soo side-hustle = oils. Because if I need them, you need them. (clearly none of us need spaghettio’s.. unless you want some.. I’ll share with you..)

Anyways, spaghettio’s are neither here nor there.. I am so excited to go down this oily road and share my life with you again!
