Getting ready to go to Young Living Convention and then onward for our summer vacation. Traveling and sleeping in hotels is usually a challenge for me. I sleep better in my own bed. I guess it is partly the excitement of travel, new things learned at the Young Living Convention and a bed I am not used to. I have a hard time getting settled down for a good night’s sleep.
