This morning when I was driving Jeffrey bean to school Chloe was lamenting the fact that her birthday is 4 months away. “It’s gonna take sooooo long,” she whined, “I WISH it could already be October!” Jeffrey (age 7) looked very thoughtfully at her and said “You know, you shouldn’t wish your days away. Just be thankful. Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” I think this tidbit of wisdom was lost on little Chloe, but it had a profound impact on me and I can’t stop thinking about it. I so needed to hear that today. Maybe some of you do too, which is why I’m sharing. Be blessed, my friends.
Vista, Ca not only boasts some of the mildest weather on Earth but it is also home to one of San Diego’s best farmers markets. With 53 different farms sharing their fresh, local produce, 18 plus artisans selling their wares and numerous food vendors, the Vista farmers market is definitely one of the better farmers markets north county has to offer. The Vista farmers market takes place every Saturday in the parking lot of the San Diego County Courthouse Complex which is located at 345 South Melrose Drive, Vista, CA 92083. Conveniently located just south of the 78 freeway, the Vista market is open from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., rain or shine.
Once a month the Vista farmers market hosts the Vista Wellness Fair, an event featuring local experts, healthcare providers and wellness products which can help you and your family explore alternative methods of achieving optimal health. Last month The Joyful Oilers hosted our first Young Living essential oils booth at the Vista Wellness Fair, and—despite the unexpected rain that day—we liked it so much we decided to make it a regular thing. We went back again yesterday and had a wonderful time chatting with other Vista locals.
It was a gorgeous June day. The sun shone brightly but the sea breezes kept the temperature beautifully moderate. We brought along gorgeous diffuser jewelry by our dear friend and fellow oiler Alex Rymal, who specializes in upcycled vintage jewelry. She is a true artist in every sense of the word! We offered brand new essential oil customers their choice of diffuser necklace or diffuser earrings when they purchased their Premium Starter Kit from us, plus some other goodies to help get them rollin with the oily life. We hook our people up. 😉 Aren’t these pieces gorgeous?!
The Joyful Oilers will definitely be returning to the Vista Farmers Market Wellness Fair. For the remainder of the year this event will be taking place on the 3rd Saturday of the month, so the next one will be held on Saturday July 16th, 2016. 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. Come out to see us! We love talking essential oils, wellness, or anything really. We love meeting new people. 🙂 If you’re not already using Young Living essential oils, this event is also a great place to grab your premium starter kit since we usually throw in fun extras (like diffuser jewelry loaded with the oil of your choice!) Plus you get to take home our exclusive essential oil handbook so you can start learning all about your oils even before your kit arrives. Well, I hope we get to meet face to face soon, if we haven’t already! In the mean time, let’s connect on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, or if you’re local to San Diego county, let’s grab a smoothie or something. Stay oily, my friends.
