Oh my goodness, I have been spending tons and tons of hours on this site, called UncommonGoods.  You see, UncommonGoods connects artists with people who are looking for unique handmade goods. They are also a company that cares. They make sustainability a part of their business every day by being environmentally friendly, socially responsible and by being a rewarding place to work. One example of this is their Better To Give program. At checkout you select a non-profit organization to have UncommonGoods donate a dollar to. This program has allowed UncommonGoods to donate over $1,000,000 since its inception.

So with all that uncommongood-ness, I just have to share with you these trendy and unique fitness and wellness items that will for sure encourage you to become a healthy you or for that special someone!

With the weather being so nice and both kids in school, I am able to make myself my a picnic and indulge in some juicy reads. As much as I love things online, I still haven’t embraced reading books online so heading to my local bookstore is always a treat. So enjoy
