Still, I think now that half of 2018 has passed, it's a good time to… Continue reading Mid-Year “Resolutions”
After a weekend trip to Trader Joe's where I really took my time instead of rushing in and out on a Tuesday night post-gym, I felt inspired to do another post about them and some of the unique and special items you can find there. As Chicago is celebrating pride this weekend, I really appreciated… Continue reading Trader Joe’s Treasures: Part II
