This one is just right

I’ve been meeting a lot of people much younger than I recently who have the motto “Go big or go home.” I have to say, this is not my motto. You might find this hard to believe from a girl who’s always “More more more!”, but it’s true. I do not want my husband to . . . → Read More: This one is just right

Tiptoe through the new stuff… Sniffapalooza style

Hey, you know what I’m not good at? Doing a detailed wrap-up of a Sniffapalooza. I’ve been doing this blog for a year and a half and haven’t done a great Sniffa wrap-up post yet.
