Events: Ready to hit the batting cages?

It’s that time of year again for a “Field Day at Night”. I can guarantee this will be the most fun non-profit event you go to this year. Come hit the batting cages, rock climbing wall and trampoline  – and no, your kids are not invited! The best part is that the night benefits B*CURED… read more

Faces and Places: Caryna Nina and Back 40 Mercantile

As the weather warms up (whether with bump or without) I always gravitate towards easy lightweight clothes. Unfortunately during the summer that often means casual sundresses and lots of lightweight cotton. And then I found Caryna Nina… This line of caftans, cover-ups, shirts, and dresses is exactly what my summer wardrobe was craving! The silk… read more

Non-Profits: A Charity that Shoots Straight to the Heart

Going Green

When it comes to being green – it’s been a slow and steady learning curve in our household. Like everything else in life I really and truly believe that everything must be done in moderation.
