OR it sounds kinda "high falutin" and what those "ladies who lunch" do that the rest of us might feel too guilty about indulging in. But I'm here to share with … Read more about Self Care IS a Thing. . . and may not be what you think
Since I am not on my regular posting schedule, today may seem a little discombulated as I have two completely different topics to share. You know if it's on my mind then you'll likely be reading about it. You know I'm a big fan of enjoying a Big Ol' Salad - just about every day.

I haven't been sending you a bunch of posts recently due to the fact that I have some other projects going on that are taking lots of my time but also because, I don't know about your, but I have been totally overwhelmed with the amount of emails in my inbox.
