How to Achieve Your New Year’s Resolutions….Or Not?

Hola Amigos! And amigas? I don’t know. Clearly I didn’t learn much in the way of Spanish during my week in Mexico. I’m sitting in the Acapulco airport as I type this, far too early for my flight, and really not ready to come home yet. I had most of my posts for December written […]

Sara […]

Guest Post – Making a Commitment

Krokodile Pear: New Juice on the Block

A little over a year I bought a juicer. I saved up all my Starwood SPG points so I could redeem them for Williams Sonoma gift certificates, and I hoarded all my work incentives for more gift certificates. I did my research and decided the Breville Dual-Disc Juicer would satisfy my juicing needs – I’d […]
