"ONE bite at a time!" ~Organic~Nourishing~Energizing~

NOT a RACE!

The “PINK RACE” is winding down, but the puffs of air fresheners and hair spray cranking out is still ON!

I am finding the saying “Ignorance is Bliss” more true now than ever.

The more I know, the more amazed I am of how ironic and contradictory the messages are in gyms, stores and kids’ activity centers.

The push for the pink along with the craze of candy has left me feeling like I was just transported here from another planet.

I am becoming more keenly aware that most of us give because we care, but without being aware that we are doing the very things to contribute to the possibility for needing the campaign for ourselves.

There’s not much we can do about the toxins that seem to “rain” down on us everywhere we go.  From air fresheners spritzing out on us in bathrooms, to bleach and other toxic cleaners in every business we walk into, we are surrounded by aromas that have not been tested for safety, but are freely dispersed in our air for all to breathe.

However, there are things we CAN control and these “little” things we do daily can actually add up to huge results.

We have the power to choose if we want these results to be health promoting or on the contrary, damaging.

A few simple things you can begin to transition to decrease your toxic load and keep you less likely to need the Race for the Cure.

I will share only the top 5 to help you begin incorporating some healthier options to your daily regime ( I will share more coming up).

1. FIRST on my list is to decrease and eventually replace refined sugar with alternatives like stevia, dates, raw honey and grade B maple syrup.

Cancer loves sugar, so give it less food to munch and grow on! Click Here to see my recent presentation on what sugar does to the body.

2. Switch out deodorants that have Aluminum with ones that have only safe ingredients (read here to find out why making the switch is so important).
The BEST and easiest option is to do it yourself!

I have always thought of this as a “granola mama” thing and since I was “addicted” to every kind of deodorant and nothing really worked for long, this has been a late transition on my health journey.

However, it’s one of the MOST IMPORTANT personal care products to replace.
Check out this easy recipe that actually REALLY WORKS!!

Deodorant:

I use 5 T coconut oil (warm to a liquid form)
4-5 T aluminum free baking soda

1 T arrowroot
2-3 drops melaleuca (for dryness)

2 drops of your favorite essential oils smell: lavendar, orange, rose, etc.

ANOTHER DEODORANT RECIPE

6 tablespoons of coconut oil,

3 tablespoons of baking soda

3 tablespoons of non-gmo corn starch or arrowroot

Add you favorite essential oils as desired

Mix all together and add to an empty wind up deodorant despenser (wind all the way down first, pour in the mixed ingredients, put lid on and then put into fridge).

You can also put in a jar and scoop out with your hands and apply if desired.

I also recommend using the poetic pits by Living Libations.
Nadine Artemis uses essentials oils to make a few versions that are lovely.  Go to the link here.

3. Begin replacing ALL AEROSOL
sprays with pump versions.

Breathing in the fumes from these pressurized cans are toxic for us and the environment. Click here for more information on why aerosol sprays can be toxic.

I love hairspray from Organic Excellence.  Check it out here.

4. Lose the lead (and other toxic ingredients)  lipstick.

I know this is a taboo topic, as we all love our beautiful, luscious lips.

We can still have this but with products that do not contain lead, Parabens, fillers, animal products and other chemically derived ingredients.

Transitioning from Revlon, Mac, Loreal and our other convenient make-up lines can seem daunting, as most of us are attached to certain brands and products, but I encourage you to begin replacing them with non-toxic and safe alternatives as you run out.

Click Here for a recent study by the FDA found over 400 shades of the most popular lipsticks contained lead.

I love Living Libations entire line of personal care products. Go to the Living Libations link here.Essential Oils

However, if you want to transition and use safe and non-toxic products, Arbonne also has so many options.

5. Alkalize your body.

A simple daily habit is to add fresh squeezed organic lemon juice to your water first thing in the morning and throughout the day.

This will keep your body in a more alkaline state so disease is less likely to take up residence in your bodily “home”. For more information click here. Another great source of information is here.

Continue reading and researching WHY this is important and you will become more aware of some of the contributors to our rising cancer rate and the need to raise money for a “cure”!

All the” dos and don’ts” can seem to be ” all too much”, so just start with ONE thing; master it, then add in another positive change.

You will be surprised at how far you get on your health journey just by making ONE simple step at a time.

Remember, it’s not a race… so don’t require it to be one!

ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY!!

The Big Girl Bed – “Letting Go”

By:Dotty Hagmier, RN, BSN, CHC

My sweet little baby just kept on growing.. It was time to transition her into her big girl bed…

But, as life continued to get busy, I kept putting it off because that would mean getting someone to buy it, or come get it, then getting other furniture set up…

The whole thing just seemed too overwhelming …. Not to mention the issue of her being my last baby and wanting to hold onto the crib…

So, time continued on until she was 3.5 years old and begged daily for her big girl bed, had way outgrown her crib and it was now becoming a pressing issue.

I finally broke down and bought a big girl bed on line and gave her crib to my dear, pregnant friend.

Saying goodbye was a bit tough.. But that was just the beginning.

The new bed finally arrived and all the million parts got put together…Sheridan was so overjoyed!!!

EXCEPT, there was the worst toxic smell I had ever smelled from furniture off-gassing from it!
I tried all I knew, but it still was stifling.

After 2 nights, toxic headaches, baby coughing and then the kids getting sick, we took the bed apart and it wound up in the garage, hoping for a Craig’s list buyer who didn’t care about the smell..

We got a buyer, or so we thought. After a 2 week long scheme, we almost got “had” by a fraudulent buyer.
After escaping this, there was still no buyers for this bed.

So, there it sat…Toxifying my already growing cluttered garage!!

It was just all too much!!!

I really needed to get in the garage for some major projects plus, IT WAS TOXIC for us to even go in there…

What was I to do??

Well, in the process of all of this, I was also trying to de-clutter and purge some of my kids’ baby clothes and toys they were growing out of…

I got a message that someone was on the way to get the donated clothes and toys.

Fear and panic gripped my heart…
Getting rid of stuff is and has been a difficult and painful experience for me…

I asked to have my friend, Jackie come ” hold my hand”.
Although I knew it was going to a fabulous cause, letting go was all too much.

Of course, while in the garage “shoveling out” and trying to deal with my attachment issues, I had to continue breathe these crazy toxic fumes.

So, here I was, having an anxiety attack about toys and old clothes and bumping into and breathing ” headache air” from
a bed I was holding on to in hopes someone would buy it!!

It in middle of all the madness, I got an epiphany that all of this “hoarding” was taking a huge toll on me and it was time to let it go and “cut my losses”.

I instantly gave the bed away to someone who could use it to help others and I began to open myself a little tributary beginning to form from the stagnant pond of this place in my life.

I know this is something that I need help working through, as just “getting rid” of  clutter is not always as easy as just coming in with the 3 labeled boxes and getting all organized.

Many (and most) times, there are deep seated reasons in the recesses of our soul as to why we continue to keep it for all the various ” what if’s, sentimental values , and a thousand other legitimate reasons to keep piling up , buying more bins and getting more storage space.

So, I feel a glimmer of light and hope as the outlet has begun to flow and excited that an amazing perfectly timed program is being launched from one of my heroes, Tera Warner!

Join me as I learn practical strategies for letting go and finding freedom in getting “light”.
You can sign up NOW!! Sign up here and get prepared to start on November 4th.

Don’t let the “baby” keep growing until there’s a crisis to make a change! Take charge NOW!

Thankfully, we found a non-toxic big girl bed and are moving forward!

Let’s get “clear” together, so we can all begin to be a river of flowing love and life to ourselves and others!!

 

Blessings,

Dotty 🙂

Cacao Your Life!!!

Hearing the word, chocolate invokes all kinds of emotions.

For most of us, it’s the feeling of love, euphoria and comfort.

These feelings are not by accident.

Unfortunately, chocolate has gotten a “bad wrap” and is now placed in the “can’t have” category for our dietary waist slimming plan.

As is the case with many of foods these days, a healthy food in its original state has been processed and altered to create a version of it, but stripping the vital nutrients.

Chocolate comes from the Cacao seed (nut) of a fruit from an indigenous American jungle tree. The cacao grows in a pod on the trunk of this tree. Inside of the pod is the outer fruit and then white pulp and nuts. Inside of these nuts is where cacao as we know it today is derived from.

Cacao is possibly the oldest word ever, being traced back over 15,000 years.

It was the trading commodity of choice instead of gold in ancient Mexico.
Cacao has been used for centuries and traced back to 1500 BC and was used by the Olmec Indians.

The Mexican leader, Montezuma, was said to have drank up to 50 cups of cacao a day.  This was not the sweet “Yahoo”, but rather a bitter drink which was also used in rituals and well known for its many benefits.

The Spanish explorer Cortez was introduced this amazing superfood by Montezuma and consequently brought it back to Spain.

Although originally consumed as a bitter drink, the Spanish began to add cane sugar to sweeten the elixir in 16th Century Europe.

As innovative as man is, they found a way to process it for mass consumption.

Although this is great news that we get the opportunity to partake of this life enhancing, mood elevating jewel, the way in which most are consuming it lacks the health benefits and on the contrary are getting ill effects.

Because “chocolate” is actually “cooked”, it causes the essential fatty acids to become rancid and strips away its vital nutrients.

Of course, the refined sugar used to sweeten it becomes a toxic cocktail to spike insulin levels and create havoc in the body.

Add in some pasteurized milk products and you have an intolerance waiting to happen from the lack of lactase to break down the lactose.

However, Cacao in its RAW form, without adding dairy and refined sugars is actually highly nutritious.

Incorporating RAW Cacao in one’s daily diet is key to a healthy and happy life.   It is so widely craved for very good reasons.

Cacao has been widely researched and studied for its health promoting benefits.

Antioxidants are key to preventing the accelerated aging and disease in our bodies.

“The Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry” in 2003 reported that cacao had much higher concentration of antioxidants than other well known sources of antioxidants such as black tea, green tea and red wine. Cacao’s ORAC value beats out out goji berries and any other super food.”

They key antioxidant, beta-sitosterol, in cacao plays a protective role against the development of cancer.

It also has components that are heart protective by increasing blood circulation as well as lowering cholesterol.

Women are susceptible to having decreased magnesium level and PMS that for many can be debilitating and life altering.  There is a reason there is the notorious “chocolate crave” during that “time of the month”.  Our bodies intuitively know we need this mineral, so we crave chocolate, which is richer in magnesium than any other food source.

Bones also reap the benefits of this amazing “superfood” as magnesium is also key element in absorbing and utilizing calcium.  Cacao is also rich in phosphorus, which is also critical in building strong bones.

It is also the highest natural source of iron, chromium and manganese, which are important for blood building and stabilizing blood sugar.

Zinc and Copper are rich in the cacao nut and are extremely important for a healthy nervous system.

The forgetfulness and brain fog that many women complain of can be helped with the component in Cacao called theobromine.  Among many of the wonderful things it can do for the body, it also promotes mental clarity and alertness, which has been noted to also help children.

Cacao also combats the particular bacteria that is primarily responsible for causing cavities.

Chocolate is almost synonymous with love and romance.  The reason behind this is not just because it tastes good, but because of the natural bliss chemical, in Cacao called anandamide. This the chemical in the brain produced when someone is in love or happy.

Eating Raw Cacao daily will help support our moods, health and vitality.

The best news ever is that we do not have to say “NO” to something that is so delicious and wonderful! WE can actually eat it joyfully and with confidence knowing we are actually doing something amazing for our bodies!!

Sweetened with raw honey, maple syrup or dates and combining with other superfoods will elevate our life to new heights!!

Giving your kids this healthy “treat” will also let them feel empowered that they can indulge in something that is super awesome for them!

Get them in the fun of life, empower them with healthy versions of the “treats” that are really and give them something that is not “tricking” their bodies instead!

Make sure you are getting your Cacao that is from a free-trade source as well.

Eat your Raw Chocolate and LOVE YOUR BODY!

Blessings,

Dotty 🙂

Sugar, Baby!!!

I recently was at my kids’ gymnastics and I saw a nice mommy take out a mini m&m pack and give it to her little girl.

She looked to be about 2 years old.

I sat and watched as this calm little girl downed nearly the entire container, leaving behind hands full of melt in your “mouth” food dyes.

This scenario really captivated me and I constrained myself from striking up a conversation with the mom to ask a few questions.

There were some things I honestly wanted to know, and without judging the situation.

My questions still remain.
They are:
1. When you decide to give your kids a “treat”, what are your thoughts before actually giving it to them?
2. Do you think about what’s in the candy or just unconsciously give it to them?
3. Do you think there are any consequences to the candy or is it just an innocent treat that is harmless?

This has been heavily on my mind lately with Halloween around the corner, and rows and rows of candy moved in front and center of every store.

It’s not only heavily accepted but EXPECTED to load our kids up to the gills with every texture, color and sweet and tart treat that is handed to them this season.

So, my thoughts have shaken down to the reality that people must REALLY NOT KNOW what it is they are giving their kids and the dangers behind it.

I would like to shed some light on the dark side of the white crystals and other refined sugars that pervade our food supply and culture.
Could it be that sugar could be classified as a drug?
A 2007 study found that sugar is more addictive than cocaine. The group of researchers conducting the study found that sugar surpasses what is called “cocaine reward” in most mammals, including rats and humans.

In another study, rats were given a choice between sugar, water and cocaine. 94% them chose sugar. Even the rats that had previously been addicted to cocaine switched to the sugar once it was a choice.

This does not seem far- fetched as we look at the astronomical increase in sugar consumption over the last few years since the introduction of high fructose corn syrup.

Presently, 17% of U.S. children and teens are obese, and across the globe the sugar intake has tripled in the past 50 years.
Our consumption of sugar is now at 180lbs per person per year, which is double from what it was in 1900.

According to the American Heart Association the average adult consumes 22 tsp/day and teens are up to 34 tsp/day.

There are very explainable reasons on why the increase in our sugar consumption is causing a health crisis in our country.

When we eat sugar, there is a cascade effect that occurs in our bodies that puts a tremendous amount of stress on the organs and systems of our bodies.

IMMUNE SYSTEM:
Our White Blood Cells, which are our main warriors against invaders, are immediately weakened for at least 20 minutes after indulging in that sweet “treat”.

The pancreas gets a signal to start pumping out insulin on overdrive to deal with the high concentration of refined and toxic levels of simple sugars, which our bodies were never designed to handle.

This triggers the “bad fats” AKA LDL’s to increase.
The liver is brought into the process, resulting in is excess fat storage.

The pancreas can only use so much of its precious insulin.  Over time, there is simply not enough to excrete to keep up with the load of sugar continuing to come down the pike, leaving us with type 2 Diabetes, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, with fat accumulation giving us that “spare tire” and our liver becoming “fatty”.

Unable to properly perform the critical detoxifying and eliminating functions, the body becomes like a toxic waste dump, and leaving in its wake the feeling as if being run over by the “Dump truck”.

Sugar also interrupts the communication of insulin to two important messengers which tell us we are hungry and full.

Therefore, we continue to think we are hungry and crave more food, perpetuating this vicious obesity, sick cycle.

Let’s talk about where the refined white sugar actually comes from.

Most of us unconsciously eat whatever is the tastiest most beautiful food set before us without any real thought about where it actually came from.

Sugar Cane and Sugar Beets are the most common sources for our white sugar.

It is not disclosed in most instances of where the source is from.
The beets are genetically modified  most of the time and at least half of the sugar gets it’s snow “white” hue from the ash of bones from casualties of the meat industry.

Their bones are sold to the sugar industry, who burn them and use the ash to whiten the sugar crystals.

It sounds like a convoluted mess.

The High Fructose Corn Syrup industry takes the “cake” by amping up the sugar content by deriving the sugar from government subsidized corn in a lab to chemically create a substance that has skyrocketed our poor health issues beyond belief.

Fatty hearts, athlerosclerotic lesions in our arteries, fatty livers, bellies, booties and bodies don’t seem to be motivation to kick the sugar our of our diet..

But perhaps information about the scientific research and startling truth about the sugar/cancer love affair would wake us out of our sugar “slump”?

The mere fact that conventional medicine uses a “sugar uptake” test to see where the cancer resides is fascinating.

It turns out that cancer lives anaerobically. It does not need oxygen to survive, but thrives on the composition of sugar that decreases the pH level in our blood, creating the perfect “acidic” environment for it to thrive and grow.

They inject the sugar water and the cancer immediately lights up as it begins to come alive with its delicacy to continue its destruction mission.

However, when the test is done, and if we are in the hospital, we may get jello, pie, ice cream, juice, crackers or any a sundry of sugar laden choices.

As a nurse, my colleagues and I didn’t bat an eye at this blind vicious cycle we were contributing to. I’m certain this continues daily in the rooms of hospitals around our nation.

The fact of the matter is, most of us do not make the connection to sugar as a huge culprit for the menace of cancer.

We continue our aimless campaigns and fund raisers and donate buckets of money to “find a cure”, instead of educating consumers of the grave dangers lurking in their pantries, refrigerators and on every corner.

The FDA seems to turn a blind eye to the gigantic elephant in the room and the trusting consumer continues eating himself to death.

Unfortunately, because it functions like a drug, even when we do become “aware”, we continue to fall helpless to its beckoning call.

The pervasiveness of this substance in our food supply goes unnoticed by most unsuspecting consumers.

So, what about our kids!?
How is this substance abusing their developing bodies?

Their immune systems are so delicate.

The more we continue to interrupt the normal functions of their bodies, the more likely they are to
develop childhood obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Their ability to fight off germs, viruses and other invaders becomes increasingly weakened.

The increase in allergies can be linked to our weakened immune systems as well.

The sad projection is that this may be the first generation where the parents outlive their own kids.

Beginning to understand the dangers of sugar is the first KEY to bringing about change in our culture.

Most of us, as I am sure the mom at my kids’ gymnastics class, certainly do not want to harm our kids.  We are doing the best we can with the knowledge we presently have.

The more we understand this information, the more we can begin to take the steps to transition toward healthier alternatives and begin to see our health improve and waistline shrink.

We are at a crossroads for ourselves and our nation.

Will we begin to say “no” to the pressure of society to give our kids sugar at every turn from birthday parties to holidays to the little “rewards”?

We can make a change and a difference for ourselves and our children.

Being a part of the CHARGE and sharing this information can be the catalyst for empowering more moms to help “Change the SHAPE of our Future”!

Think Before You Pink

We are deep in pink!

With half the month of Breast Cancer Awareness over, you can’t go into almost any store without the pink ribbons pulling at your heart strings.

While the desire to buy things shrouded in pink comes from a sincere desire to combat the devastating effects of breast cancer, the sad reality is that our money, according to many reports are not quite going to finding a cure for breast cancer.

We are walking, spending and giving blindly mostly out of the hope that someone somewhere can help stop the devastation of a disease that affects so many in our sisterhood.

Besides the fact that so many of the companies and their products that have partnered on the pink campaign actually sell products full of ingredients that are linked to causing cancer, the cure is largely within our own control.

The research shows that 70 percent of our health is determined by our own choices. The enormous amount of research is going into finding a cure is grossly unbalanced to empowering women to learn the strategies to maximize this exciting and positive percentage of hope of health and well-being.

As the President of Moms IN Charge, it is my goal and mission to give moms the understanding of what they can do to increase their immune systems and decrease the amount of toxic load so they have the best chance to live a healthy, vibrant life, free of cancer.

Our sisters who have died and suffered and are still suffering are in our hearts and minds and we are committed to supporting them with information and being part of the solution and putting our money “where our mouth is” to really make a difference for the health of all women.

Although the pink campaign was certainly birthed from a true desire to help women and find a “cure”, the truth is, the cure is not in supporting products and companies who are continuing to perpetuate the ongoing cycle of cancer.

“Think Before You Pink” is an effort to help women and people everywhere to consider what exactly it is they are giving their money for and what are in the products they are buying, which could be in direct contrast to the very cause they are supporting.


Decreasing toxins by using non-toxic products in our home, on our clothes, skin and environment that we can control is a first big step toward healthier immune systems.

Early detection is critical and finding the less invasive, safe yet best diagnostic method is key.  Thermography is a proven way to detect cancer long before it manifests as a physical symptom.

Our food choices are such a critical piece to the puzzle of our health and cannot be neglected and overlooked.

Simple, small changes every day can improve our chances of vibrant health.

A few of these are, fresh air, pure water, regular exercise, specifically rebounding to keep lymph flowing, sweating, far-infra red saunas, lemon water, organic foods, decreasing and eliminating preservatives and decreasing all sugar intake.

Supporting organizations like Moms IN Charge and The American Anti-Cancer Institute, who are working to bring authentic change and healthier options to those who are trying to stay healthy or are battling cancer and are looking for options that will give them real hope, are critical to making bringing about a brighter future for all women.
Please “Think before you Pink” this October and throughout the year…pathwaystones

Get empowered and begin taking steps to being a healthier version of you… You can be “IN CHARGE” of you!

The POWER of MCM (Medicine Cabinet Make-Over) ….And love ;)

Even when you are trying to do all the “right” things, unfortunate events can occur.

I was reminded again how grateful I am to have found information to empower me to help my family transition to healthier habits and eating lifestyle.

My kids one by one got sick.

Thankfully, I was armed with a new arsenal in my medicine cabinet to support their little bodies back to health.
However in the midst of “remedying”, with everyone tired, cranky, cooped up together and heavily on each others’ nerves, I had reached my breaking point. Mama needed a “time-out”.

In my venting mode, I sent my mom a text to let her know my kids were driving me nuts!

Her response set in motion a series of life-changing events.

“I’d gladly change places with you.”

Um, something must be terribly wrong with her to want to change places with me in the crazy house, I thought.

So, I picked up the phone to find out what was going on.

Hearing my mom crying on the line 3000 miles away telling me she was in the worst pain she had ever had in her life, prompted a quick re-organizing of my life to jump on a plane to Georgia to see what was going on.

She had fallen in the airport after her recent visit to see me and my family.

Her first x-ray said there was nothing broken, but upon arrival to seeing her bent over, hobbling in pain, holding on to whatever she could find to support her, I knew there was more to this “unremarkable” story.

After pleading with her MD for another Xray and guidance only to have him tell me he would give her pain meds and an x-ray slip she could pick up AFTER his weekend off, I swiftly took her to the ER.

The X-Ray revealed a fractured pelvis in 2 places.

Before I arrived, she was in so much pain, that she was taking pain meds and sleeping pills.
Unfortunately, this was the course of treatment prescribed  from her medical doctor.

However, I brought my “medicine kit” to do what I could to help support her body’s own healing mechanisms.

Homeopathic medicine is based on supporting the body’s own healing mechanisms .
I began using these through Traumeel cream and tablets.

As a massage therapist, I understood that the muscles around an injury always work to protect the insult by drawing up around the area affected.

The deep blue essential oil cream by DoTerra works to penetrate through the cell wall and relaxes and soothes cramped muscles.

Through gentle massages using the essential oils and traumeel, the muscles were able to release to give her relief and bring essential oxygen and blood flow to the fractured bones so healing could accelerate.

I gently rubbed serenity at night to her neck and back to help her get the needed rest.

She said it was like a drug and immediately put her into a deep sleep, lasting throughout night.

Liposomal Vitamin C is a powerful and effective healing balm inside the cell.

She began taking this three times/day.

I quickly ordered Juice Plus for her which has a synergistic amount of fruits and vegetables to give bioavailable calcium to help her bones effectively and more quickly repair.

Farm Fresh to You organic produce is on the way to continue nourishing her body at a cellular level with micronutrients.

Without these vital nutrients, the body cannot heal itself efficiently.

Last night in Georgia, as we discussed the whole ordeal, we were all so grateful that we were able to find out what was going on and put together a plan: rest, no weight-bearing and thankfully no surgery.

Because my mom never wants to slow down, before I got there, she admitted she had been on her hands and knees scrubbing the floors and hobbling all over the house.

Now, using a walker, she only moves when necessary and realizes her body is hard at work and it’s time to let it do it’s job.

The most amazing part is she never had to take another pain or sleeping pill from the time I got there.

Through my arsenal from my MCM and lots of love and TLC, I felt so blessed to be able to offer real and authentic help to my mom.

It’s sad to say that most traditional medical doctors really have nothing to offer besides medication.

It made me more acutely aware of how many unknowing people are being “drugged” daily instead of using safe and effective therapies to help them through their illnesses and trials.

More than ever, I now know how important it is to get the message of these simple, yet powerful remedies to as many people as possible.

Sitting here in the airport, I felt sad to have to leave my mom during this difficult time, but also feeling encouraged and blessed knowing she is in good hands, with the right plan to get her up and at em’ and
better than new.

Let’s get empowered to help ourselves and those we love now so we are ready when the opportunity arises..

Spots are still available and walk-ins are welcome!

Join us for the MCM TONIGHT and learn how to get your cabinet stocked and READY!!

See you there!!!

Blessings,
