Not too long ago, you couldn’t scroll your feed on Instagram without seeing a post about slimming tea. It seemed to be all the rage for a while there, and all the celebrities were getting in on it. Their marketing did not suck. Meanwhile, quietly in our own stash of amazing Young Living products sat Slique Ocotea Oolong Cacao Tea just waiting to be noticed. It’s so unassuming among the powerhouse essential oils lineup that you would forget it’s even there. Oh but it is. And it is fabulous. Continue reading →
Last night we saw a huge moving truck driving into our parking lot. I went outside and saw that it belonged to a gentleman we had met when we were out here on vacation in May. They’re moving to Dallas by the end of the week. He said they’ve been here 9 months and just cannot handle it anymore. He has a job, but if he loses it he knows there is nothing else here for him. He has an almost one-year-old daughter, and the school system here is currently less than ideal. If they run out of her formula at the grocery store they need to wait at least a week before it’s back in stock. The water and electricity go out regularly. I stood there and listened to his explanation, as he looked quite blissful to get the heck out of here. Continue reading →
Oh my goodness, you guys! I have been drinking our Young Living Slique Shake for a few months now, and I love it. I usually drink it totally plain with water and ice, but yesterday I had a strong craving for chocolate. I have this vegan frosty recipe from Rabbit Food for My Bunny Teeth that I usually make, and wanted to see what would happen if I added our Slique Shake to it. O. M. G. It was amaaaazzziiinngggg!!

Before we left New Jersey, we were contacted by Juliette’s past dance teacher. We hadn’t seen her in years, but she didn’t want us to move to Puerto Rico without saying goodbye. She rearranged her schedule and made plans to meet up with us at Manhattan Bagel. I was so impressed that she actually went out of her way to catch up with us.
While we were there updating each other on life, and filling her in on why we were making such a drastic move, we got her talking about her goals and dreams. We found out that her BHAG is to be a backup dancer for Beyoncé. We also found out that she had gotten a degree in video production. Well, that was a no brainer! I told her she needs to start a YouTube channel where she is showcasing her dance styles, along with some trending hashtag about her goal.
At first, she wasn’t feeling it. Continue reading →
An update is well overdue! We have been in Puerto Rico for a week and a half and it has been quite eventful, to say the least. A few days after we got here, we learned of Hurricane Irma – “the strongest hurricane to ever form in the Atlantic.” It was a category 5 hurricane set to completely decimate Puerto Rico. They showed the eye of the storm passing right through the island, destroying everything in its path. That didn’t happen – thank God! I had such peace about it. I knew the Lord didn’t bring us here just in time to wipe us off the face of the planet. Continue reading →
