It's another beautiful missouri summer day. The big rains yesterday have given everything a good soaking and the plants are smiling.

My husband Tommy and I are off to the Northwest----Bellingham, Washington area and then up to the San Juan Islands ----I'll pack an extra suitcase and take my oils along ----We've visited this beautiful area several times before and I look forward to the adventure and new sensory input that will come my way!
