And I like that – to keep people guessing. Keep Reading

Cleansing the body to rid it of toxins and infectious chemicals is not new. It goes back well into history, as most religions have some sort of cleanse or fasting ritual.

There is just something about being wrapped up in that soft knit – almost like being enveloped in a large down comforter. I have an oversized button-down sweater shawl, that much to my husband’s chagrin, has been in my closet for at least 6 years. I will admit it is starting to get a bit shabby, but when I am at home working – you can bet I have it on. In fact, I am sporting that said sweater right now – oh my, can I tell you how comfortable I am. Keep Reading
