A few years ago, I decided I wanted to start yoga. So I bought an old paperback from the 1970s, called Richard Hittlemans Yoga: 28 Day Exercise Plan. It...is definitely from a bygone era. As in, entire chapters devoted to the housewife and her daily chores. But it was a great self-paced introduction, and I … Continue reading Namaste, Mfers
The weather here in Southwest Missouri has been cold, drizzly, and not very spring-like. So for Easter Sunday this year, we decided to have a French-inspired indoor picnic.

Bells & Whistles
The more crystals and bells in my house, the better. I can hear the crystals ring like bells and see the bells' jingle flitter like light refracting off the crystals. It brings so much joy and happiness to my home. In what felt like an intuitive decision, I hung a strand of bells on my … Continue reading Bells & Whistles

Some women are blessed with long, dark, beautiful lashes. The kind that get in the way of their sunglasses, and trap flies. We are not those ladies. Both of us are eager to try eyelash extensions, but the price tag is a bit steep for us to maintain. Until we can save some money, we've … Continue reading Eyelash Envy
