Josh and I made it to our destination yesterday! But like most people, once you get to where you’re going, and you’ve been cooped up in a car, you are pretty exhausted by the end of the day.
When I am winding down for the day, I generally just like to turn on Netflix or YouTube and zonk out. Sometimes that isn’t enough. My mind will run and run keeping me awake and alert. Two things you don’t want to be feeling when you are trying to- oh I don’t know- sleep?!
That’s when I pull out my essential oils and a good book 🙂
I am currently reading The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson, I am posting my current locations on Goodreads. Along with putting breathe on my chest, lavender on my wrists, I start to feel the effects. Even then, I may need some help, only when I am away from home, that’s when I turn to the Serenity blend. Within 15 mins, I am out.
To continue where I left off on what I do to pack… I love making lists to help improve what I NEED to take verses what I WANT to take. It helps my also stay focused, this way I don’t fill my bag up with useless things I need for my trip!
I will never leave without packing my doTERRA oils! I generally put these in my purse with me, but these are what keeps my together when taking trips, no matter how far. I have two personal blends, then my Breathe and Lavender, along with my PastTense and InTune for headaches and anxiety attacks.
I find that toiletries can either make or break the trip. I have left the house leaving so many things I needed behind. Once I left my shampoo and conditioner behind and had to buy some. I dunno about you, but I would rather save that money for something else. I’ve gotta say, sometimes you should pack a little more, to save you a whole lot less. If that makes any sense at all!!!
After getting everything packed up into my purse and suitcase, all that is left is to load up the car and get going, which we will be doing in the morning! Again, this trip isn’t very long, but I want to enjoy more of it!
Do you have any summer trips you are taking this year??
Today, Josh, my grandparents and I took off to Delta, Utah to take flowers to our loved ones who are no longer with us. And to my surprise, visit with family. It was awesome! Josh and I learned from one of my great uncles that they had some kittens out back in their wood pile. Thinking that it would be fun to see them, we went looking for them.
To be honest, I didn’t think that they were going to be there. Whether they wouldn’t come out or maybe they moved out to the neighboring fields. And I was wrong. There were four kittens! Josh and I noticed they were thirsty and hungry. Over the span of an hour, we gave them chicken and water. They immediately warmed up to us!
It was quite an adventure for us today. How grateful I was to spend it with people I love and care for. While making some new feline friends 🐱
