The Two Cards

We’re simple people around here.  Before kids, Valentine’s wasn’t that huge of a deal.  Now?

Okay, I am obsessed with her, but for excellent reason.  Heather, the gal behind Penny Jules, is rocking the socks off the jewelry world.  You see, she makes all of her own stuff.  And

Commercial Break

Who loves commercial breaks?  No one, unless you have to pee or they’re the fantastic ads aired during the Superbowl. But commericals are a bit of a sticky wicket because they are necessary.  If you want to see your nifty TV shows, you’ve gotta pay for them somehow (and unfortunately, the right arm you donated
