Our Journey Home

Happy Healthy Guts :)

This month I had the pleasure of sharing my home with a good friend and her daughter. The addition worked wonderfully and freed both of us single mothers up enough that we got to try a few new things. She encountered some misfortune and picked up a guardia infection at a singing workshop over the summer.
