This is something that has been resonating w/ me this week; guessing it’s due to all the Valentine’s Day hoopla.  My hubby and I don’t go all out for this holiday.  It just isn’t something that we want to stress about ;).  I love my husband of 13 years (wowza!) and from having completed The …
I dig a good sweet potato (get it-dig…, I crack myself up!).  Anyway.  I came across some awesome organic sweet potatoes the other day at a health food store that aren’t the typical orange skin and orange flesh.  The two types that caught my attention were purple.  I usually don’t gravitate towards purple, I did …
