The Top 5 Scooters for 2016 – For Kids and Adults

There are so many scooters out there, I decided to do some research to find out about the top 5 scooters for 2016.  I just recently bought myself a brand spanking new Razor A5 Lux Adult Kick Scooter.  Yes I did!  My kids like to go up to the school parking lot every day after school and ride their scooters around. Usually by 4:00 or so all the cars have left, so we have this giant arena for riding scooters.  I would always casually stroll behind them watching them have so much fun on their scooters. Often times, I...

Worth every penny…  Because as we all know, the bookstore had...

Macro Photography…Butterflies, Bugs and Spiders – Oh My!

What exactly is macro photography?  Do you ever feel like the universe is trying to send you a message?  I do all the time!  I use that as my excuse to buy things I don’t need – like new cameras or fun toys that I’m curious about (not things I actually need).  Lately, I feel like the universe has been pushing me to get into Macro Photography. I’ve heard people talking about macro photography a lot, but had never really known much about it.  Over these past few weeks, I have received countless articles in my inbox and on...
