Brussel Sprouts and More

After a six month hiatus, I returned to my trusted hair stylist, Kerri, this week.  She had a baby last fall, and I decided that would be a good time to try someone new.  However, I really missed Kerri and just had to go back. (Has that ever happened to you?)  I consider her my […]
