Over St. Patrick's Day weekend, I traveled with friends to Savannah, Georgia and experienced one of the country's largest St. Patrick's Day parades. Upon our exit from the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, I… Continue reading My Savannah Story
One of the "draggiest" parts about this time of the year in areas like the Midwest is the dry air, outside, as well as inside due to rogue apartment radiators that whistle like a tea kettle all night, every night! I used to have a humidifier that I would put a few drops of essential… Continue reading Weleda Skin Food

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZh7FLrzUao I love Bob's Burgers, always have. This television show captures a very realistic depiction of humanity in a very funny and sometimes heartwarming way.
