Five Ways I’m Adjusting For Winter

All of a sudden it's winter. If feels that way every year I know, but this year it happened in less than a week. Like it went from 60 degrees to 30 degrees in a few days. With such a mild fall I wasn't quite ready. That being said here are five things to do …

Forest Bathing And Why I’m Obsessed

I actually started writing this post and my IPad completely deleted it, which is probably great for all of you because I was starting to ramble, but I am back at the beginning because I really have to share how great forest bathing is. This fall, once all the ticks were dead (not really but …
