We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  2. This little remedy helped me in the past – it was actually suggested by my Dentist when I was in great pain and it turned out I had a sinus infection…
    1tsp salt
    1tsp baking soda
    Dissolve above in 1 cup warm water.
    Then comes the "attractive" part 🙂 How does one put this…sniff/snort/inhale/somehow get that liquid up your nose and into your sinuses!
    I encountered IMMEDIATE relief from the pain.
    Get better soon!
