After having a rental car for 22 days, I couldn’t have been more excited to get my car back Tuesday! When the guy drove up in it, it was nicer than I remembered, and then when I opened the door, …
Since we live a holistic, natural lifestyle, it only made sense for us to give this same life to our new fur-family member! Luckily, we found a holistic veterinarian, and we brought Roux for her first check-up….
Just recently, I found myself trying to figure out what I’m going to be feeding everyone for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
