Had my roommate try the vanilla lavender sugar scrub I made and he liked it. It removed the dead skin from his nose. He also said that the skin felt soft and tight. We discussed the issues he has with his face and decided to try to make one with tea tree oil and lemongrass.

Today I went to the lavender festival. It was really nice to be outdoors with someone I truly enjoy spending time with. I even got myself a couple of lavender plants of my own to nurture and harvest. I had planned on going there with dreams of someday vending there. As we walked by the vendors, there was one with goats milk soaps. I should have been excited at the prospect of seeing someone else successful and spark even higher flames for my hopes of being the same. Instead it discouraged me. I was upset about the fact that I wanted to make soaps and oils. I wanted to be that person. But I have to keep in mind that I'm not ready and the universe is not ready for this just yet. I will slowly continue my journey and crawl before I walk. Dreams are guidelines for what's to come if I just stay focused and determined.

So I have definitely been slacking on getting everything up and running. I'm so busy with the move, my super awesome boyfriend and work. I'll get those pictures up of the stuff I have made and will also put some ideas up of what I plan to do next. I know the deadline is coming up for my boyfriends deployment and I need to get some soap made as well as sunscreen lotion bars and bug repellant. I also need to get on my herbalism classes. I plan to start those at the end of July after I am fully settled following the move. Will keep everyone posted.
