What I do know is that I’ve kept mine around for some reason or another with the option of returning to it […]

Hashtag Because I’m a Parent

That time I got my nose pierced

Yes, I may be almost thirty years old, but for 12 years I’ve wanted to get my nose pierced. However my sweet little hubby has NEVER been a fan of the idea. Now I know that I could totally go get it pierced without his approval, but I respect him enough not to do so. […]
