I love to get involved with causes to help others, but it's hard sometimes to find them!

Daren Smith_Crowd

If you've been in Utah anytime recently you've seen ads from Ken Garff (who sponsored this post). While you've heard their emphasis on listening when it comes to cars, you might not know the depth of their commitment to listening.

Scrubbing is the absolute worst, based on an informal poll of 75% of my children. So I was excited when I was invited to try Shower Shimmy. What I liked best: it was created and invented by a mom, it works great, it's a good value … [Read more...]
