Maybe You CAN Have A Perfect Body

Yes, I’m talking to you! What do you think it would it take to get you there? Lots of exercise? A great detox program? A diet? Yoga? May I suggest, perhaps, a paradigm shift, instead? I have said many times, “My husband is not perfect, but he’s perfect for me.” By that I mean, of …

This post is a re-blog from Nick, at Frugal Feeding, a favorite food blog of mine. Gluten-Free Brownies Specifically gluten-free fare isn’t something dabbled in particularly often at frugalfeeding.
