Outfits: Leave Nothing But Footprints (+ Giveaway)

Lately, life hasn’t given me many reasons to feel like dressing up. Of course, once upon a time (not that long ago, really), I didn’t need a reason to get dressed. I just did it because it made me feel good. Well, I’m trying to get back in the habit of doing that. And I… Continue reading Outfits: Leave Nothing But Footprints (+ Giveaway)

Kid Style: The Wonder of Nature with Tor Organics

My family has lived in Georgia for a total of more than a decade, but I admit, we haven’t seen as much of it as we’d like. We’re creatures of habit, and we tend to frequent the same places we’ve always gone. That’s mostly my doing, I’m sure. I tend to prefer the familiar.

Why Organic Produce is So Hard to Find at Your Favorite Stores

As much as love patronizing my online farmer’s market, 80% of the time, I shop for food at a grocery or super store. This isn’t for lack of trying, but most of the “farmer’s markets” in this area are actually international markets with little to no local OR organic produce. I have better luck in… Continue reading Why Organic Produce is So Hard to Find at Your Favorite Stores
