Meet SNAP! 2012 Sponsor Homes.Com (Plus a Giveaway)

Ever need a little stress reliever? I do. And, though I have a tendency to eat my feelings, I’ve found a wonderful substitute.

Hello million dollar home in Sandy, Utah…

Please tell me I am not alone in this little bit of crazy…

It all started for me last summer when I met SNAP! sponsor

  13. First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thanks!

  14. Jennifer S. says:
