After we got back from Michigan, we kind of had an empty fridge. We cleaned it out before leaving so we weren’t welcomed home with some foreign stink wafting through the air. Not waiting to go out to the grocery … Continue reading →
Winter time is always rough on my skin. I have to break out the big guns of extra healing moisturizers and such. This year, I’ve been going the “au naturel” route and have started to switch out my commercial moisturizers … Continue reading →
