My first goal with working with Usborne Books & More was to take our family to Disney World! God has provided for us, in that we can pay our bills, but there isn’t a lot of ‘wiggle room.’ I knew that if I wanted to make my dream of seeing The Mouse come true, we’d have to get creative.
A year and a half ago, that’s exactly what happened.
In March of 2014, I joined Usborne Books & More with a dream of taking my family on a vacation (we’d never been on one). In January of the following year, God made that a reality!
(Special thanks to Kristy H. for putting these pages together for me!)
When the annual incentive trip, this year to Ireland, came around, I never imagined we’d make it! I mean, it’s IRELAND, people! But, I dared to dream a little more (click here to read more about that), and this past month, July of 2015, another dream came true!
My sweet husband and I toured Ireland for free!
It was such an incredible trip of a lifetime! I’m forever thankful to Usborne for this opportunity!
Here’s a little bit of my trip:
This is the line at the top of Blarney Castle to kiss the Blarney Stone!
Yep! That’s me! I had to be held upside down to kiss that thing, but I did it!
We took a cruise to see the Cliffs of Moher (which are the Cliffs of INSANITY from The Princess Bride! Yeah, WAY!!)
Here’s a quick video of our traditional Irish banquet at Bunratty Castle! The room is Usborne-only, and the event was fabulous! The lyrics to the song are above, and, well, lots of Irish songs are about some pretty awful stuff (kinda like Country songs with a fun accent)!
All the signs are in English and Gaelic!
Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Gardens
One of the best parts of this amazing trip was being able to share it not only with my husband, but with my friends! I could say ‘team,’ or ‘other consultants and leaders,’ but I won’t. These people are my friends. I love talking with them each week, I love spending time with them at meetings, Regional, Leadership Retreat, and National Convention, and I genuinely care about and pray for these sweet ladies. They are my friends, and y’all, I have the best friends in the world!
God has just blessed this business in a way that I never dreamed possible, and I’m so thankful.
It’s not only taking us to Disney again in January (we got ressies for Be Our Guest – for dinner!), but it’s also now paying for my younger daughter’s medical bills and therapies. What a blessing!
And, I’m going to dream again, this time for Usborne’s next trip – a cruise!
Doesn’t that look fabulous?!!
So, yes, I’m going to dream. I’m going to dream of warm sun, hot sand, and big buffets – all for just doing my job of sharing these incredible books with sweet families!
And I’d love for you to dream with me!
Is there something you’ve been wanting to do but haven’t been able to because of a tight budget? Would you love to fill your home with books for your children and never pay full price? Would you like to take your family to Disney or on a cruise?
It’s POSSIBLE, friends! You CAN do it!
If you’d like to talk more about it, please message me on FB or contact me through my website by clicking the pink envelope in the top right. Ready to get started? Awesome! I can’t wait to welcome you to the family! Click here to get going, and then we’ll be in touch very soon!
I’d love to set sail with you next July!
