If You Like Johnny Cash You Will Like

I grew up on country music. As an adolescent I steered towards rock and emo. Then a few years ago I found myself on a new path. It started with a desire to listen to some old country songs. I started off on Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson, and discovered John Prine, Kasey Musgraves, Jason Isbell and others. Over the months and years I’ve continued to evolve from there.

I bought this box with my own money. There is an affiliate link in this post.

Have you heard about the Amazon sample boxes? They are similar to subscription boxes but they are just one time purchases.

Turkey Sausage Potato Veggie Skillet Meal

One of the difficulties we’ve had since trying to eat lower calorie meals, is finding meals to replace “heavy” meals. Particularly in the winter we just want “stick to your ribs” type meals sometimes. It’s hard to find hearty meals that aren’t really high in calories.

About 15 months ago my hair seemed to lose it’s shine. I always had shiny, strong hair prior to that. I was 24 at the time. A few months after I lost the shine, I started noticing “fly aways” or broken pieces of hair that would stick up on top of my head. This has continued since then. I first noticed the change a few months after starting hormonal birth control, but my … Read the rest

I know that most women struggle with finding a comfortable bra. Many of my friends have told me that they  buy the same style over and over once they find one that works. That is true for me too! Yet, as women we rarely share our bra secrets with others so they can find the good ones, too.
