Last year I received an e-mail asking for someone to come to a 2nd and 3rd grade public school classroom to teach art. This soon became what I looked forward to each week as I became an “Art Hero”. Whenever I walked into Room 22, the students would run to me yelling “Kimberly!!” and “We get to make art!” What a joyful experience to see these young people create...

We are all too familiar with the lackluster experiences of couples whose passions fade. Biology kicks in the dance of endorphins and dopamine during the first 6 months to 2 years of the mating ritual, creating a high for couples who are pulled together by what seems to be an irresistible paranormal force.

Here's a lovely recipe for a Lavender & Rosemary Milk Bath. With just about 5 minutes of prep time you can have an aromatic and healing bath. Enjoy!...
Editor's Note: Muscle-relaxing magnesium will be absorbed from the Epsom salts while the buttermilk and powdered milk soften the skin. This aromatherapy blend is good for a morning bath, as Rosemary and Lavender stimulate the body by increasing circulation and assisting the lymphatic system in eliminating metabolic waste products that may accumulate in the body overnight. Inhaling Lavender and Rosemary in your steamy bath may also help relieve lung and sinus congestion.
