We had a great Saturday! The hubster’s band played one of the local fairs, opening for Lonestar. It was a pretty big deal.

When we bought our house, it had rosemary, thyme, mint, lavender and lemon balm. At first, I loved the mint and lemon balm. I made oils, vinegar, and tea. Lots and lots … Continue reading Find What You Love
