I'mmmm BACK!!!

 So...this post is way out of order....but by now you are well familiar with my tech skills. Last weekend while Josh was home we headed up to Deer Valley (GORGEOUS as ALWAYS) and heard the cast of the TV series in concert outside....YES WE ARE WEARING LAYERS and COATS and was freezing...such an odd non summer. Josh and Spencer endured...Mike Hardman is the one taking the pics. Yes, he is still as beautiful as always. The boys played that crazy poker game where you put the card on your head and have to eat however many Swedish fish are in the pot if you lose. I was sure one of them was going to throw up. Up above you can see that they got their pic with our favorite sister duo...Lennon and Maisy...and they thrilled us with singing A LIFE THAT'S GOOD...think that should be our new family song!
 Man...look at these beautiferous childrens I MADE:)  Michael and Sam and were MISSED!!! And you know how Laura is ALWAYS PERFECT? Well...for the record...she got in a card flinging fight and actually threw cards that landed on neighbors on the blankets next to us!!! I love it when she is naughty!

 Pic of Mike this week somewhere in Alaska...we are on the count down!!! He will be home the 21st!!!!
 I spent this week training for Do TERRA at their Elite Retreat in Altamonte UT. Everytime I fuss about the drive...and this time I was bugged to have to leave after only 2 nights at home from Europe...but you can was GORGEOUS!!! And as usual...I fell in love with another 100 new leaders...and of course wish they were ALL MINE! So many incredible people sharing the Do Terra love!

 Not hard to get up to exercise when this is the view on the road!!!
 I escaped the paint ball wars by helping in the kitchen!
 They didn't heat the water. I am so NOT a Utahn when it comes to pool water...I need my FLORIDA warm water!
 A look inside. I think we should rent this one Christmas when you are all married and we have grandbabies and we can all be together and snow mobile and just play with no outside interuptions. The blessing or curse of this place is NO PHONE RECEPTION. I 'm sad that this was our last time to train here. Now we will be in the new building just a block away from my new condo. Much better drive....but it will lose some magic not to be locked up all together.
 Soooo...this is the catherdral in Milan...It was raining like crazy and I got to sit through 2 Mass. It was a sacred experience that was unexpected and soul stirring. I have no idea how many people died in the building and creation of this is SPECTACULAR. I have found that I LOVE being in places where there is a group consciousness around loving God. SO MUCH LOVE in this place. SO MUCH LOVE. I sat in it and wrote and felt wrapped in new knowings. I lit 2 candles. I said prayers. I prayed for each of you.
 These 2 pictures are frustrating because they just don't do it is MUCH larger than this on the inside. The nuns were quietly moving in and out. I was in complete awe at the sacrifice their lives represented. I knew for sure that my life this time around was not meant to be a life of renunciation. As compelling as it would be to have the whole world as your children, I would be non-functioning overwhelmed. And believe me...I would NEVER trade any of you!!!!!! So much to examine in the differences in the lives we choose for ourselves. Yet, bonding to know that most of us come together in a love for the matter our path.
 This is a pic from up above the Parceleus al Ronc Retreat....the Swiss are quite the engineers with the way they build into the sides of mountains. We were up higher than the lightening and thunder...THAT was a sight and experience to feel! This pic is from a village of 25 homes, 2 restaurants, and ONE OFF THE CHARTS Chapel up took us about 20 minutes to hike up there. Switzerland may be the most beautiful place I'v ever been. But for every day...I like a bit more flat and bigger cars and roads that have 2 lanes, especially when winding up and down a STEEP mountain.

 My 2 latest and SO FAVORITE will meet them when they come to spend the week with me. This is Mariza (fellow Diamond, only in Robyn's leg) and her mom (yes...TRUE) Jody. I think Jody and I have been waiting our lives to find each other. We had SO MUCH...maybe TOO MUCH fun! We will definitely be travel buddies in the years to come. Guess what she does? She sells human parts for transplants...yep...another truth. Mariza gets married next weekend. After that Jody can come play and I get to be with them at convention. xxooxx In the pic above we are at a castle in the Italian section of Switzerland...SO MANY CASTLES!
 This is a quick SMALL shot of the chapel 20 minutes up from our retreat. only 25 homes with this indescribable chapel....we went to a string quartet concert here one night that would have blown your socks off...I was sure my life was a movie.
 Just a shot while driving as we were leaving Italy.
 Okay...McKenna the BRAVE HEARTED!!! Jumping off the Golden Eye Movie Bridge that I told you about. She was such a delight to have with us...she is a HAPPY, OH SO FUN TO BE WITH, girl/woman.

 Looking down on a morning hike....
 The Americans at the retreat...
 Yea,...lets not talk about my weight...this was our "treat night" after the cleanse :)...all fresh with no sugar....
 Here we all are at the castle!
 This is Laura jacobs...a Presidential Diamond with Do Terra (McKenna's mom)...I pretty much tried to pull out every bit of knowing I could get while I was with SMART, SAVVY, Oil LOVING Lady!
 And then there was SAMMER'S BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!! Dad posted the best pics on Facebook Sam! Made me cry. I'm so sad about the Tesco's delivery not working!!! Becky or Sam will be bringing you the Digestzen. Becky comes to me the 10th and is staying for 2 weeks for Convention. She really is one of my favorite friends now...England is actually the home to MANY new favorite was so exciting to finally get to them after Switzerland. So many people to love....xxxooxxx. Did you know that Sam Bowles is going for it in Do Terra? And our Joshy just decided to join as well. LOVE YOU SAM HARRIS!!! So thrilled you got to gold on your bday!
 That's what I'm talking about!!!!!!.......TIMBERWOLVES!!!!!
 Just letting everyone know Sam is BACK with Elder Pogue again and they are happy as clams!
 This is of my most interesting, driven, smart, FUN, tending BESTIES...she is the one who invited me to Switzerland....she is the world famous (literally) GREEN SMOOTHIE GIRL...if you aren't familiar...go google her...she invented the Green Smoothie and took it across the nation. She is the one I had the $10,0000k bet with for the year. Isn't if bizarre how all of my friends are true BEAUTY QUEENS?? No...I'm not insecure.....
 This is Miss Emma Peay bungee jumping....WAY for the AMERICANS to REPRESENT!!!! This is Robyn's daughter...and yep...equally amazing.
Soooo my lovies...I learned ALOT on my travels. I learned I want each of YOU to have time and opportunity to travel and be with other cultures. I want you to eat at a street cafe in Italy. I want you to hear Mass at the Duaomo. I want you to have 5 to 8 Italians gather round you the second you pull out a tourist map to help. You KNOW why they are considered the Lovers. I want you to hike the mountainsides of Switzerland and sing THE HILLS ARE ALIVE with a bunch of friends who just GET the moment you are living...and actually can harmonize...soul stirring. I want you to cleanse your livers. You would have laughed and would still be mocking...they take pictures of your output....seeings as Sam and Spence are already private pros at this :)...anyway....I knew you'd smile. SO MANY SMART, LOVING, CHANGE THE WORLD people to be crazy as it sounds...I want us to be with them ALL!!!!

My room mate at the Parceleus al Ronc was the dearest Indian woman, Rita Bassi. She has lived with Leukemia for 9 years with no medical treatments...she believes in this book called the CURE FOR ALL DISEASES....its all about doing liver cleanses. I could listen to her for hours as she told me about her life as an Indian woman, with 2 arranged marriages...arranged by  using star charts to help the parents decide...oh my...oh my...SO MANY LIVES and WAYS OF LIVING!!! I feel like the Gods love me best. I am constantly in utter AWE at all that comes to me. Thank you. THANK YOU. T H A N K   Y O U!!!!

Write me lovies...tell me all about the magic your lives are bringing you...and most importantly, that YOU are creating. Harrises love us some MAGIC!!! Excited for morning to hear from you Sam!

This is a PS...Saw this pic of Joshy's adorable girlfriend, Therese (on left) and thought you'd like to see her Sam...LOVE YOU ALL SO BIG!!!!!
