As a woman, I love it when my legs are soft and smooth (and Frank loves it too)!  I’ve tried waxing (it hurt and was expensive), but mostly I shave.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve found that it never fails that the day after, my legs are already prickly.  Uh!  I want smooth […]...

With softer, […]...

Have you noticed all the store ads and emails coming in with bathing suits on sale?  I don’t know about you, but I am definitely not looking forward to putting one of those on any time soon.  While the Winter cold makes it easy to cover up, the Spring and Summer don’t.   For me, […]...

A romantic place filled with gorgeous architecture and rich history, the whole of Europe is a dream destination of many people.

I have loved shopping for wedding clothes and accessories – and that includes wedding shoes.  The first wedding shoes I tried on were the Glitter High Heel Platform Pumps at David’s Bridal.  While they are gorgeous and blingy shoes, they are not the ones I’ll be wearing under my wedding dress.  However, I will be […]...

  After being sick for a week, I was ready to “get back on horse” as they say and kick butt hiking.  I was on my own this week and didn’t want to hit an all-new spot, so I chose the Sycamore Crest Trail.  This trail is the backside trail to one of our first […]...
