L.L. Bean Moccasins Keeping Feet Happy All Winter Long

For Christmas, PA Thea gave me a pair of the L.L. Bean Wicked Good® Moccasins and they are amazing. Slipping your foot into these bad boys is like being engulfed in a wonderful cloud of woolly warmth.

I devoured it and immediately couldn’t wait for the second season to(…)

Waffle & Wolf offers a new twist on your traditional waffle — think waffle taco with sweet and savory fillings. At first, I found the options a little overwhelming. There are 14 pre-designed(…)
