Sunscreen Testimonial

I’m not sure what the weather is looking like elsewhere in the country, but here in Alabama we straight up skipped spring and began hurtling head first into summer about 3 weeks ago.  I keep waiting for a cold spell to knock us back into reality, but I am beginning to doubt that will happen.    So, about 10 minutes after dragging my whole family out to a noontime St. Patrick’s Day parade, I realized (too late) that we all… Read more »
