Playing a little catch up. Started this blog post about a dozen times this past week but never was able to finish it. This time of the year brings so much to do and all of it is good. So first thing to tell Hillcrest pounded Bishop Kelly 55-21. They literally beat some of the best football teams in Idaho by significant margins throughout the playoffs to win the 4A State Championship. After arriving back in Idaho Falls there was a party including 40 pizzas, 200 wings and singing “We are the Champions” to very loud music.
Before the weekend there was doTERRA Tour Arizona. So back to the beginning. Monday arrived to the Royal Palms Resort & Spa. After grabbing some lunch we hit the Alvadora Spa with a few of our leaders. I got the Hot Stone Massage and this Orange Blossom Body Buff and let me tell you I felt renewed. Honestly I was so relaxed I could barely walk out of the Spa. I think I found Heaven in Scottsdale. We stayed in the Arcadia Villa and enjoyed a great event planned by our team on Tuesday. I presented on Emotional Well Being and also presented the 2019 Incentives and Convention. I think everyone was very surprised and excited. I loved this Resort and the time we spent with new and old friends.
Oh one funny thing I have to tell you. We had a Taco Bar for dinner on Tuesday. They would make your tacos or burritos any way you like it kind of like Costa Vida. I talked them into providing crushed pineapple as one of the toppings. Sara hates it on tacos and tells me I am a freak because I eat my tacos that way. She bet me I couldn’t get 25 peeps to try it. I told her to hold my drunk and yeah I surpassed her challenge and she is now wondering what is wrong with her because peeps liked it. Ha! She is taking me on a shopping trip for new heels and there is no price limit (:
Wednesday off to Sedona and the L’Auberge de Sedona Resort. The resort and area is absolutely beautiful. Had another spa day and this time I enjoyed the Quiet Mind Massage and an Aroma Salt Glow. We also had a group session of Sound Healing. That was a unique experience with my friends. Thursday was the event and they had so many new people and guests there. I love when someone young, motivated and has no fear is on a mission. I was inspired and she had a lot of enrollments. I think I have several new best friends. We started Thursday off with a yoga class about 20 attended. Breakfast was at 8:30 then the Event started at 10:00. We had a Welcome, Key Note Speaker, then lunch. After lunch we had some breakout sessions. I taught two of them. One on Recruiting and one on Building Passion for Essential Oils & doTERRA. I loved our accommodations at this Resort. Stayed in the Creek House which was huge. It was the gathering place for the late night crowd. Below the top four pics are of the Resort bottom four pics of the Creek House.
Friday we had a chance to do a little touring and see a very cool property that was once a Hotel. Went through a nine year renovation and one of the coolest places I have seen in my travels. We arrived back in Phoenix later that night, ate dinner, crashed early and back to Salt Lake City. I made my connection to Boise in time for the game.
Some final thoughts. At the end of the day it is the relationships we have and build that is what matters. I am very lucky to continue to meet so many amazing individuals and as good as dōTERRA is, it is those relationships that are making a huge difference in the World. Lives are changing and all I can say is WOW I love playing a part and having a means in doTERRA to spread our Message of Hope.
