Mom trip

October 18, 2017

Oh my gosh, you guys, I just had the most amazing weekend.

I got to go to Branson, MO for an Young Living conference, which was super amazing all in it self. And let me tell you, if you’re looking for a way to grow yourself, connect with other women who have the same #momboss passion that you do, or maybe you need to be inspired to bring that out of you, then this is where you need to be. Words cannot even express how filled up I am after this weekend, and more so just because I was surrounded by so many women who want the same things as me. A healthy, happy family, that I nurture and care for, but also a little piece of my own success that can lead to build up other women in their own journeys. Ugh — gives me goosebumps.

So besides all that amazing-ness, I think Branson is one of the prettiest places I’ve been to. I am used to city living and this was the total opposite and just tugged at my heart strings so badly. The wide open spaces, the tractors, the cute little towns full of connected community. I could just eat it all up.

We got to take this gorgeous tour through the Ozark mountains, seeing old civil war cannons blasted off at sunset, and just reconfirming what a blessing it is to be an American. I was crying like a baby, no joke, the mom cocktail probably didn’t help the emotional state.

And you know, taking a trip like this just really made me appreciate my family. I got to talk to Logan over the phone, which never happens because I’m always with him, and he was telling me joke after joke after joke. It was the cutest thing, and made me hear him totally differently than I normally do. I could hear Holly in the background calling my name, Lucas said that she was so confused because she couldn’t find me, and of course that made the crying on my behalf ensue.

But, getting some time away, in the mountains was enough to clear my head from the fog I’ve been living in. It gave mea moment to restructure my thoughts. Realize what I’m really working for. And just trust that I am on the right path.

So, if you’re walking in a fog, take a mom trip. Even if it’s somewhere close by. Get a girlfriend, pack a bag, and re-implant yourself in those younger years of just living in the moment. It’ll be so worth it!
