life + prayers....

I wanted to take a minute to acknowledge some things …

Business is BOOMING praise God! And myself and family are so very grateful for our clients, community and the opportunities that we have been given. In the past eleven months, my fragrance business has gone from a few weekly orders to several signature scent clients. I have enjoyed the process of creating scents and feel like I’ve finally found my calling! All the jobs, businesses and volunteering I’ve done over the span of my lifetime has set me up for this moment. At this very moment, it would seem to outsiders that I’m on top of the world, but the fact is- it’s not totally the case. You see, the past two years of my life have been the most difficult I’ve ever faced. In the past month, my car has broken down, I’ve had family hospitalized, I got a letter from the IRS stating that my husband and I have to prove we are in fact married…???? seriously? I’ve been battling with health & wellness issues , but the fact is- this is just little life stuff and none of it has power over me.

I read a post the other day that said “ Remember , someone out there is praying for you have today”

….. and if that isn’t the T-R-U-T-H!!!!

so, I wake up every day at start it by feeding my herd and giving thanks that I can still afford to do so. I think about all the resources , gifts and talents that I have. I am so grateful.

Thank you for your love and support!

Hi Friends!

We’ve been so blessed with so much business that vacation seems worlds away at this point. Three thoughts on this:

  1. Praise God for ya’ll & the abundance!

  2. We’ll vacay at some point!

  3. In the meantime, I’m making my famous Perfect & Simple Sangria for a dip in the pool between making & shipping!

I hope you enjoy this recipe & share with your friends! It’s not too crazy strong- it’s like Koolaid for Mom & Dad!

Cheers! xox- Dondi
