For more information, check out legal forms in the footer.   Every year, my husband and I make it a goal to plant vegetables in our raised beds that he made for us. I have always loved to grow my own vegetables but I haven’t always been successful at it. For the life of me, I could never get my bell peppers to grow! About a year ago, I was in an Epson salt bath just relaxing. I started reading the back of the bag. Did you know that you can use the salts to help grow awesome plants? Last year was…

    Traveling Through Italy

    Italy In 6 Days     This article may contain affiliate links. I only recommend products that I have tried and love!   People, it is possible to travel Italy in 6 days! I do not recommend it though! Well, it was actually 8 days but I take out the 2 days for travel time. Six days is just not enough to fully soak everything in. I would definitely recommend at least 10 days. On this trip, we would be visiting Rome, Florence, Amalfi Coast and Naples. Last year at the end of September, we had the opportunity to travel to Italy. My husband spent some time there when he…
