The age old question, it’s been discussed extensively between parents, grandparents, and of course, children.

I want to celebrate the every day. I feel the need to seize the day, live it, enjoy it and celebrate it. There is a saying about burning the special candle, wearing the special underwear, (or something like that?) and it just means that we need to make the most of the days that we have. […]

Yogurt In a Bag: Really! #iögo
