My Apologies

Please forgive my slacking of this sight the past couple weeks. I've had a daughter in and out of the hospital and things got a little crazy. But now I'm ready to get us all back on track. Be prepared in the coming weeks for simple inexpensive holiday ideas, new recipes and savings where ever I can find them.
