However, one question that I’ve never really gone into detail about, are the products I trust and use the most. For me, it was a long process of trial and error, to […] Read the whole post!
Last week, I went to pick up my little one from pre-school and his teacher said he woke up from nap with a really runny nose.

Great news friends! I was recently contacted by Christine Kim, Founder of Ostomy Connection.

Another tap on my shoulder this morning, this time at 6:30. “Babe, I’m going to walk next door and get a quick blessing from Aaron before he goes to work.” …Phew. It’s not another trip to the ER.
