WELCOME!! I'm so glad you are here! This is my first attempt at writing a blog, so bear with me as I get my bearings here and figure out how this whole blogging world works. I've been wanting to start one for a while now and think it's finally time to just jump right in! SO...here we go!! 

My name is Charlene Smith. I have been married to my fun-loving wonderful hubby, Weston, for 9 years. (Time really does fly by...) We are very different individuals, but God created us perfectly for each other. We really do balance each other out. I bring him down a level or two when he is about to fly off the handle or remind him to consider his words before he says them. He encourages me to be bold and speak out more often. We make a good team and we learn more about each other every day. 9 years ago, I didn't think I could love him any more than the moment we said our vows, but I was wrong. Each day brings a deeper sense of the love I have for him.

I work for a local bank and my husband works as a parts courier for a local quarry. I am also the Worship Pastor at our church, where Weston plays guitar as well. We LOVE the Lord and have a passion for connecting people's hearts with God's through worship.

We LOVE to travel. In about 30 years, you can find us on a cruise ship somewhere! We have been on 3 Carnival Cruises in the last 4 years. And we have more planned! We find it such a economical way to vacation and we just can't get enough. I plan to document our future adventures and I will probably re-cap our last cruise as well. 

We have been trying to have a baby for the last 7 years. It has been a very tough road to walk, but we have learned a lot along the way. We have learned to embrace the waiting and it's taken our trust in God to a whole new level. With that being said, God has also been speaking to us about not being stationary in the waiting. I'll talk more about that later....

We have a double yellow headed amazon parrot named, Lolita. She loves to sing and talk. I also can't write this without mentioning our sweet boy, Rocky. We faced a situation we didn't forsee for at least a couple more years this last week when we had to lay him to rest. Rocky had been a part of our family since before Weston and I got married. We don't know married life without him, so we are still adjusting to his absence. Once I gather my thoughts and my emotions, I will post about how we dealt with losing him. 

We are crazy essential oil people! They are a part of our daily lives as you will see me document on this blog. I will post DIY recipes and lots more regarding Young Living Essential Oils, as they are the best (in my opinion, the ONLY) choice out there. They have truly changed the way we do life and we love to share them with everyone we know and love, so they too can reap all the awesome benefits. AND Young Living pays me to share my love for their products...how awesome is that?!?!?!

Well....that is the quick and simple introduction. My intention with this blog is to be transparent and genuine. We hope that the trials we have faced and overcome in our lives can help others going through something similar. I am so excited to start this journey with you all! Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to get to know us. Have a blessed day!!!
