I was offered the chance to taste test a really yummy new product on the market (and a Michigan-made one at that!) and couldn't say no. The product is Cranberry Naturals, a new all-natural juice from Old Orchard. I didn't want to pass this up because I LOVE cranberry juice, but I always struggle … Continue Reading..

My purse and its contents have become a major issue during the past few months. Not only is it embarrassing to pull out a diaper at a meeting instead of a pack of gum, but it's annoying.
