What's the big deal about Young Living

Schlitterbahn, Galveston


Our entire family was given the opportunity to visit Schlitterbahn in Galveston recently, and I have to say, WE LOVED IT.

I made our plans for late May, before school would be out because I thought we would be able to enjoy a relatively empty park, so I was a little concerned when we pulled into the parking lot to see 10-15 school buses and realized we had scheduled our visit on what appeared to be “field trip day” for the local schools.

Although there were plenty of people in the park that day, we found the workers to be extremely friendly, courteous, and accommodating. I don’t know about you, but I have found these qualities to be more and more rare these days when I encounter workers in public places. Sometimes it feels like they are annoyed you are spending money there!

Not so at Schlitterbahn! In fact, I mistakenly thought the park closed at 6, and I thought it odd that the workers were starting to sweep up and set chairs in a straight line at around 5. Then I noticed there weren’t that many people in the park anymore, so I asked what time the park closed.

“We closed 15 minutes ago, at 5:00.”

“OH! I’m so sorry! I thought closing time was 6:00!”

“No problem at all. Take your time,” the worker reassured me.

We never once felt like any of us were an imposition on their day, even though we had no idea we were there after closing time!

My best tip for enjoying Schlitterbahn is to pack a rolling ice chest. They welcome visitors to bring in food and any non-alcoholic drinks not in glass containers. We packed plenty of food and drinks to keep us refreshed and hydrated all day during our visit.

Mood Lift in a Bottle

Young Living Mood Lift in a Bottle


I carry this combo in a little bottle in my purse wherever I go. While I was out of town with my 9 year old, she noticed me rubbing it on first thing in the morning.

“Are you sick?”

“No,” I replied. “These oils just give me energy and make me feel good. I like the way they smell.”

“Oh, so you’re addicted?”

“… Yeah. I guess I am.”

Here’s how these oils are described:

  • Vetiver: calming and stabilizing effect that accompanies its heavy, sedimentary fragrance
  • Patchouli: calming, relaxing, peaceful fragrance
  • Lavender: soothing and refreshing, great for relaxing and winding down before bedtime
  • Valor: inspiring and calming aroma or apply topically to experience this empowering and uplifting fragrance
  • Stress Away: stress-relieving and relaxing essential oils that can help reduce tension

You can see why I am never without this blend!
