Highway 12, the only road on and off Hatteras Island

Hello all! Just little about myself: I currently live on an island called Hatteras Island out in the middle of the ocean off the coast of North Carolina. It’s so small that you can really only see it on the most detailed of maps. I recently began a new job position at our local ferry docks in our southernmost village (and yes we do call our towns “villages”) of Hatteras as a receptionist at the front desk where my job is to answer phone calls, answer questions about our ferry system, do the morning paperwork, etc. Very exciting stuff.

When I am not at the office, however, I can usually be found doing one of three things: church/personal reading, gaining knowledge of and experimenting with essential oils, or cooking. Or maybe four things, since I spend a lot of my free time with my sister, who is one of my best friends on the planet, apart from my other sister. And my brother. And my parents actually… So I guess you could say my family is pretty important to me too.

And that’s where my essential oil journey began; when one of my sisters told me about the benefits and how I never have to have chemicals in my home again! Like, what?? So I recently signed up in June with the world leader in essential oils, Young Living, and though my journey thus far has been short, I have not looked back. I hope you can find some things in this blog that help you along the way on your own personal journey!
