My name is Leigh and my husband is Jared. We have been together for almost 20 years. We’ve got two

When life hands you lemons, you are supposed to make lemonade. Well, I did that yesterday. Today, well today there was a mishap in the freezer. In stead of letting it get the best of me, I decided to get a project done that I have been meaning to do, but never had the time…….
How many feed bags do you have laying around? Do you just throw them away? I’ve always been one to save dog food bags. I don’t know why. Probably the same reason so many people save shopping bags that they never, ever reuse. At least not at the rate they save them. But after cleaning…
