I’m back at work today after my birthday vacation last week. Actually I was back to work over the weekend trying to get caught up. Vacation is fun and all, but not the getting behind on work part… While I was on vacation, Organic Authority shared a post I wrote for them that I thought … read more

Fresh from the mountains

I’ve long been a fan of the Juniper Ridge line of incense–I currently have cedar, juniper, white sage and piñon.
