As a woman, I have dreamed about my wedding day and what I would look like as a bride who walks down the aisle. I’ve imagined what my kids would look like before I was pregnant with them. I’ve even thought about what I’ll look like when I’m a grandma someday. Something I’ve never thought […]...

If you know me, then you are probably pretty familiar with the fact that I love sugar!  I drink Iced Tea often and usually use 4-5 packets of sugar in a 16 oz glass.  It’s so funny to see the looks on our kids face and hear their comments about how I don’t get hyper […]...
