Gift Guide: Dude Edition

Its holiday gifting season!! Ladies, can we all agree that most guys are awful to shop for?  Awful.  My Dad remains a mystery.  My brother is super challenging, too.  But my husband is not.  Maybe because he isn’t shy about sharing what he likes.  Or maybe because his likes, interest, and sense of style are very consistent.  Either way, I or rather he can personally vouch for all of these items.  These are some of his favorites, so hopefully these items will give you some ideas for those impossible to shop for guys in your life! Happy Shopping!! *Items $25 and under are marked with an asterisk.      …

Instead of driving myself into the ground, I am staying sane by building time in to take care of myself.  I’m not skipping my morning run or yoga.  As I write this,…
