“Christmas” means something slightly different to everyone. For some, it’s a time of community traditions and religious celebration. For others, it’s a family time, where loved ones gather around their own traditions. For others still, like myself, we really don’t have much in the way of tradition, or we did at one point, but as

It’s the day before Thanksgiving, and a lot of you are probably wondering why I’ve decided to make a post about ham and potatoes instead of turkey and stuffing, like pretty much every other blogger on the planet. Honestly, I don’t have a good answer for that, but I do have a kind of funny,

If you liked the Mint Mocha Body Scrub from a few weeks ago, then you’re going to love this week’s recipe! A friend of mine inspired me to go check out the local flora in my new home. To my surprise (and thrill), I realized that the community was FULL of decorative lavender plants! I

One of my friend-Skylers (the local one) mentioned the idea of banana pumpkin bread to me, and I had to say, I was intrigued. I enjoyed banana bread and I happened to have a surplus of pumpkin puree in the cupboard due to a sale at the local grocery store. 3 for 1. Great deal,
