But First, Coffee…

Ever since I was younger, I remember my father drinking coffee every morning. To me it was like this ritual and rite of passage. I wasn’t an adult or couldn’t start my day unless I had coffee. I admit, I probably started drinking coffee slightly too young (maybe 14/15). But when I got older it’s…

The Reality Of Living On Disability

All Natural Products

Now, if you have looked through our own apothecary site, you know that I love creating and using all natural products. I fully believe that the earth provides us with mostly everything we need.

Snowfall, Pumpkins & Hot Cocoa
