Outdoor Oasis Party

Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Pier 1 Imports. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.

Although I only took a little more than a week off, I can’t believe the amount of catching up I have to do. I decided before I left on my trip to California that I was going to be present in the moment and really enjoy my time away. I only checked my email a […]
