Labor Day was created in the late 19th century as trade and union movements grew. The holiday first honored the American Labor movement with the first parade in New York city in 1887. Oregon was the first state to make it an official holiday. It has been many years since the first Monday in September was set set aside to celebrate Labor Day.
Yes, there are still unions- we are seeing big changes in the way business is conducted, and more entrepreneurs than ever. Young Living has long played a role in helping people choose a healthier way to live and work.
This leads us to another reason we celebrate this holiday- it is the last hurrah before school starts and marks the end of summer for many. So,before we shift seasons-we gather loved ones for an end of summer, picnic, BBQ or weekend at the cabin. We can't think of a better way to savor the last of summer than with some home-made Blueberry - Lavender Ice Cream!
Every year at this time, we wonder where the summer went as we prepare our family for back to school!

Today, we were discussing the word Stewardship -and what an important role it plays in our lives. Stewardship is a word that means "to manage or look after". Such as a farmer being a steward of the land or countryside, Young Living does an outstanding job of stewarding the land, and they do it on a global scale that is truly amazing.
Another description of the word Stewardship is " an official appointed to supervise arrangements or keep order at a large event, for example a sporting event."
As summer wains and we move to harvest time at the Young Living Lavender Farm in Mona, Utah plans are underway for one of our favorite events the Fall Festival- September 29-October1.
The Fall Festival & Draft Horse Show
For us Stewardship also speaks to how we manage our relationships with our families and our teams. This even celebrates not only the land and the people who care for the farms, but family, company values and teamwork. Click the image below for a link to all the details!
