Give the gift of relaxation this Valentine's Day with Melt {Review}

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. I have cards for the kids’ school, treats for the parties, and some chocolates for the kids, and I felt pretty prepared. Until I realized I had done nothing for my husband! We don’t make a big deal out of Valentine’s Day, usually flowers or chocolate, maybe a night at the movies if we can secure a sitter.

Give the flu the boot with Boiron Oscillococcinum

MOMMA DOWN. I repeat, momma down! Send reinforcements (or coffee…..) Raise your hand if flu season has hit your house. I can raise both hands and a foot at this point!

With our calendar usually full months in advance with school and activity commitments, events and family gatherings, we are usually so strapped for time that important appointments go by the wayside. Before the holiday chaos really begins I like to get
