Brown Paper Wrapping Paper

This year we opted to forgo the fancy glitter wrapping paper in favor of using brown paper instead. The brown paper is not only stronger than the usual Christmas wrapping paper, but it’s recyclable. It has so many other uses besides wrapping. Once the gifts were opened, we folded the used paper and stored some… Read more

Glass of Milk

Dr. Bronner’s Soaps

Castille Soap

About a week or so ago when we were rained in I watched a video on Netflix about Dr. Bronner. He might be familiar to you. He’s the guy behind Dr. Bronner’s Castile Soaps. In watching the video I realized this man was a genius. Sometimes misunderstood and other times over the top, but he… Read more

In browsing the Internet I came across an interesting blog. I was going to link to it, but when I tried to go to the URL today, the account was suspended. Bummer! I’m hoping it’s a temporary glitch (here’s the link just in case it is a glitch). Anyway, on this blog was a post… Read more
