There is still so much more to learn and grow in … Continue reading The Best Carrot Cake Recipe, Ever.

I was sold … Continue reading Go here next: Craftsman Row

2017 was full of FANTASTIC music. I mean, every category soared and surpassed hits that once held a critical part of my heart (no rhyme intended). I'm starting off 2018 with some of my favorite songs that I either recently discovered or listened to over 100 times in 2017.
