You guys…. we have MORE snow coming this weekend, and it feels like I’m living December 23th over, and over, and over again. Why December 23rd?

I get lots of questions about my hair, and hear quite often that I’m “lucky” to have the hair that I do. I think that’s totally fair, since my mom and grandma passed on the genes of full, thick hair. But having full hair doesn’t mean “healthy” hair. Growing up in Brazil I always felt […]

A year ago RJ (my now husband) got offered a really good position in Phoenix. After talking about it we decided it was a good opportunity for him, and so he moved away from me. The position only required a two year commitment, so we knew it wouldn’t be permanent. After a few trips to […]
