Facial Toner Recipe: Simply Love Your Skin

Let’s start simply loving our skin with natural anti-aging ingredients.

I wanted to experience the northern lights, in real time.

They always seem to go faster on TV, and be brighter in photos.

There was so much I experienced that I did not anticipate – the seasons, tundra colors, alpenglow, the extraordinary people that are now my family.

Then I met him, the one they called Stoner (it’s his last name, and yes – that

makes me a future Stoner),

With the big laugh and bigger smile.

And so we ended up here, and there, and a few other places (calling 6 states our home in 4 years – jeez, really?!) Continue reading “Life is What YOU Make it 🌻”
