Darkness in Disguise

Anyone else out there a sucker for pretty packaging like me? You could pretty much wrap up a pile of poop in colorful cellophane, add some decorative labels and a cute tulle bow and I’d probably be tempted to buy it. Ridiculous right???But that’s what we do every day...

Legacy of Love

I’ve been thinking a lot about my Daddy lately. For those of you that don’t know, he passed away when I was barely 7 years old. When you think about the time that you spend with your child from birth to the age of 7, you would think you have this unbreakable bond,...
