Got my hair did at Refresh Salon and Spa

It’s been a year and a half since I did my hair last. O.k, maybe it’s been even longer. In all honesty, I can’t even remember it’s been so long!  However, mom-life took over, and I never made getting my hair done a priority. Needless to say, I’ve been needing to do something to it. This […]

Prioritizing time with my daughters

Spending time with my daughters outside of my daily `bossing`them around and mundane activities, can often times be challenging, especially since I have three!
