At the beginning of this year, our family had a lot of wonderful changes happen. First, we moved to a bigger, beautiful house with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, on an acre of land. Secondly, we added 2 sweet, loving Great Pyrenees puppies to our family. I’d had dogs when I was younger, but never […]...

This is a partnered post with Canvas Factory. I’m not sure about you, but I love to take pictures. With smart phones and digital cameras, taking and sharing pictures is easier than it’s ever been. While this is a great thing, I wish I had more of those pictures printed out and hanging on the […]...

This is a partnered post with SPLASHPAD. Being a redhead, I am very careful with how I take care of my skin. I wash my face twice a day and my hands multiple times a day. I’m not a messy person, but it seems like every time I do that, I leave behind a mixture […]...
