plant based probiotics, shopping with purpose, 7 minute workout, and the buddha bowl

While I have never been a big meat-eater, I do enjoy a good chopped salad with chicken, albacore sushi roll, or a well cooked salmon steak.

say yes every so often

Individual time spent with each of my daughters is pure bliss. I am blessed to have sweet, charismatic, caring girls. Expectedly, because they are two years apart, they have snippy comments towards one another, CONSTANTLY. With having sisters, you would think I understand. The thing is, my siblings and I are not as close in … Read More
