I’ve Been Eating Well Lately

In previous posts, I have spoken a lot about how fortunate I am to live in a family and a place where good food is not hard to find. In recent years, I have branched out and opened my palette up to new experiences. But sometimes the oldies will always remain the goodies.

Good morning everyone! Ok, so I am the worst about scrolling through my news-feed on Facebook and clicking into every link shared by my friends. This morning no different at all. Thank you Colleen for the post! However, I wasn’t expecting to be brought to tears! I mean come on people it’s Friday. We are supposed to be selfishly thinking about our great weekend plans, right? Well the video below, will bring you back to reality. No, I am not a mom. However, I am a daughter.  If you are…
