Sproda

Have you heard of a Sproda? Yes?  Or maybe this is a drink specific to a coffee shop here in St. Louis. I tried it on a whim late this past week at a coffee house titled “The Living Room”  here in St. Louis – I debated for a moment or two – the description…

Returning to Reality

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend 3 1/2 very short days in the sun, fresh air and warmth – This was his “company trip” – for meeting business goals set out for the year. It was our 3rd trip to Cancun. It’s funny – I wasn’t raised near a beach so I…
