December 2017 Recap

Happy New Year typography - can use the same idea for Christmas card

Happy New Year! December seemed to fly by. I had a better reading and blogging month than November. I also had several life things I wanted to highlight.

RC Essential Oil

First off, I want to sing the praises of RC essential oil. My mom is obsessed with Young Living essential oils and recommends them for pretty much everything. Some of them I like, some I don’t care for, but RC has kept me sickness free so far this winter. There was all sorts of sickness going through the office over the last couple of months and usually I’m right in the thick of it. But, I’ve been putting on RC every morning and night and whenever I feel like my throat is starting to get sore and it’s taken care of it. I really recommend this! And if you decide to buy some, you should buy it from my Mom (I can give you or sponsor/enroller ID # to order from the website) and she can follow up with you. She loves talking about oils!

Ok, other notable things for December. I have a new niece! Morgan was born a couple of weeks early, but she is doing great. She lives a couple hours away, so I’ve only seen her once, but I plan on going back down sometime this month for another visit. I also got to meet up with Brandie from Running on Words and Wine for the first time and it was so cool to meet one of my favorite bloggers! We lent each other a few books, which was also amazing. Christmas was good, despite being very different this year than in years past.

  1. Sounds like a good month. I’m impressed, as always, by the number of books rad this year. 134. Wow. O_O

    And I’m glad your new niece is doing well. 🙂

  2. I thought of you over Christmas and hoped it was going okay. Unfortunately, no matter how hard I tried, I still caught this dang flu bug. The RC oil still helps…I’m putting it on twice a day and it’s helping with the cough. I still plan to meet up and get more, but now that I’m sick it probably won’t be until the weekend. I hope this crap only lasts a day or two.

    • Thanks for thinking of me. It was kind of a weird year, but it ended up being good. I’m glad the RC is helping, even if you didn’t get it on fast enough to ward it off. Just let me know whenever you want to meet up. I hope you start to get better!

  3. A new niece!! Someone you can force all your reading habits on!! 😛 Congrats on that. 😉 Meeting bloggers has to be quite thrilling honestly! Awesome wrap-up, Stephanie and hope January will prove to be even more amazing!!
