I Tried Blue Apron for Two Weeks and Here’s What Happened

My husband and I have been doing the Dave Ramsey program for a while. We make monthly budgets, and for the most part, we stick to them. But there’s always been one problem area that never seems to go away– food. We eat out too much. Both my husband and I are incredibly busy. He…

Announcing the Va Va Voom!

I don’t remember the exact moment that I stumbled upon it but when I did, I instantly saved it into my favorites. I remember thinking, these necklaces are so cute and I may have to commission them to do some custom ones. At the time, it had never occurred to me what would become of…
