Why do you eat healthy and exercise?

Slow Down and Take Care of Yourself

Uncategorized Nov 30, 2017

I have a pretty nasty cold as I am writing this. My sinuses are stuffed, my head hurts, and I feel absolutely drained of all energy.

This past October as the air was starting to turn crisp, the leaves were changing colors, and the promise of fall was in full sway  we found out the happy news that we were expecting our 7th baby.
