I am a #VZWBuzz Ambassador, as such I have or will receive product &/or compensation, however all opinions are strictly my own.

Cruising along at 6o+


While we may have more time on our hands at this age, Mr. S and I DEFINITELY have less disposable income than we did when we did when we both had full time careers. Mr. S retired early, as did I…both due to unforeseen circumstances. After a few years of trying to fill my time […]

If this sounds like you, you may be loathe to […]

Fun, fitness & friendship – Wellspring Camps

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Wellspring Camps. All opinions are 100% mine. I married into a big family.
