I saw Miley Cyrus and Here's What Happened

I've always been starstruck.  Seeing celebrity makes my heart beat a little faster.  Living here in the midwest, my opportunities for seeing celebrities is limited.

I am also noticing that I am starting to worry a bit more about safety. Especially when I am with my kids.  Yesterday, my kids and I were at Los Angeles International airport waiting to go through security.  The lines were long, long, long and actually snaked through an entire hallway and down the staircase.  It was unbelieveable. Tempers were high as people feared they would miss their flights.

We finally reached the security checks.  People were putting their bags on the rollers to go through the xray machines.  I looked around and noticed an extremely scuzzy looking guy with a baseball cap and three cameras with zoom lenses.  What can he possibly be taking photos of I wondered?  No one else seemed disturbed. When I presented my license to the security guard, I asked who is that person taking pictures.  I also wondered why he was being allowed to do so. The answer was that he was a paparazzi. Miley Cyrus was just a bit ahead of us in line.  Sure enough there she was a darling looking young woman.  I pointed her out to my boys who recognized her but told me they wished she was a pokemon. 

In the interim, I was quite frightened of the paparazzi that I thought was up to more nefarious dealings that I felt my anxiety levels grow and grow and grow. When we exited the security area, my heart was really beating up a storm -- that old fight or flight syndrome.  Fortunately, I had a teeny little vial of lavender with me in purse that I was using on my dermatitis that I picked up on the beach.  I breathed in the lavender aroma with deep breaths and I could feel my heart beat slowly returning to normal. Essential oils work. They work everytime.  Contact us at for more details.
