Still The One

How was your Valentine's Day?  I love February!  
This week I will celebrate 11 years of marriage with this handsome guy!

Wow we looked young.  

The time has really flown.  Our three older kids were very small 
at  our wedding-- ages 5, 6, & 7.  They are now practically adults. 
 And our "baby" is 10.  

Life with him has been interesting!
We've had tons of fun, lots of laughs,
and more than our share of bumps in the road--
Life truly is a roller coaster ride, isn't it?
But here we are, eleven years later,
eleven years stronger.

You're still the one, Babe.

You and Me

Can it really be February already?

Wow.  Valentine cards and conversation hearts
and giant teddy bears everywhere!  Hah!

Do you celebrate Valentine's Day?
I usually get my kids a little something,
but Hubby and I don't do much since our
anniversary is 6 days later.
I'll probably get him a box of chocolate.
And then I'll probably proceed to eat most of it.
And he'll say it's ok and insist HE actually ate most of it
and tell me I shouldn't feel guilty.
I guess that's why this marriage works.  *wink*
Oh to be young again.

I have been very busy this week getting acclimated to

The best way to go about it is to click on the link, 
then choose "products" from the bar at the top.  
From there, you can choose what you want to explore first.
Essential oils?
Healthy weight loss?
Versastyle jewlery? (Don't miss that!)
Scrapbooking and photo stuff?

It's a crazy-awesome website so full of things that I know will
pique your interest!  You can sign up for a FREE account and 
get your goods at wholesale prices, too!  What a great concept!

At this time, the South Hill Designs products are still on my 
Everything will be merged over the next few weeks.

I just placed my first Youngevity order and it's due to arrive tomorrow!
I can't wait to see it all! There is so much more I want to try, too!

Ok, off to wrap up homework duty and pack lunches for tomorrow!  
The weekend is in sight!

And Superbowl weekend to boot!  
My hubby is a HUGE Denver fan so....

Who are you rooting for?

The Perfect Couple

Are you half of that "perfect couple?"
You know the ones.  They go together
like peanut butter and jelly.  
Like peas and carrots.
Like wine and...well anything else.

You get the idea.

So it's no secret that I love lockets.
I mean, if you scroll back over this blog
or if you know me personally
you know I take more pictures of lockets 
than of my own children.
(No offense, kids.  It's just that the lockets
don't argue when I get the camera out.) ;)

I truly never thought I could love a jewelry
line as much as I have loved South Hill Designs.

And then came Mialisia.

Just watch!

Everything I have seen from this line is so amazing!
I really can't wait to get this stuff together
with my SHD lockets and start really rocking this
beautiful "marriage" of jewelry!


So in case you're confused...

South Hill Designs has merged with Mialisia.  So now
both of these gorgeous lines of jewelry will be available on my
website-- in the very near future.  The minions are working
diligently day and night to get everything underway.

And there's even more!  Mialisia (and now South Hill) 
is owned by an even larger, publicly traded company
called Youngevity.  

Youngevity is basically an amazing
one-stop direct sales shop!  Through Youngevity you can
purchase essential oils, incredible vitamins and other health products,
organic coffee, mineral makeup, clothing, and of course
this gorgeous jewelry!  I know.  It sounds a little confusing at first.
But it won't be.
Um....and did I mention you'll be able to order all of these 
awesome products at a WHOLESALE price?!
It's crazy-good!
As soon as my Youngevity site is up I'll share it and let you browse.
You might want to make a snack.

Ok, as much as I would like to just play with jewelry all day, I do have things I need to accomplish.

I have to adult.

Raise your hand if you think that's overrated.

Yeah, me too.

Have a charming day!

What a difference a day makes sometimes, right?  

How do you feel about change?
For some, it can be very difficult to accept.  
You just want things back the way they were, 
or you don't want to put the energy into learning something new 
or a new way of doing things.  
It can be very time-consuming.  
It can take a lot of your time and energy.  
And yes, change is hard.

I wonder if caterpillars feel this way.


And this is a big BUT...
 Change can also be incredibly rewarding...life-altering even!
When you accept it, don't fight it, and lean into the wind, well...

So, I am embracing this change with South Hill Designs 
and Youngevity.  
I'll tell you all about it very soon.  

But for today
I want to encourage you
to embrace change.

Because you just never know what you might find
around the next corner.

It could be something you didn't even know you needed!
It could be the most amazing thing that ever happens to you!

Have a charming day!
