HEALTHY SLOW COOKER ITALIAN SOUP


OUTDOOR SPACES
The Beauty is Yours for the Taking
 

 
Plans are underway for creating our summer house...adding elements of design in the garden. Selecting places for unexpected bright colors and touches of whimsy! How fun to design small spaces for entertaining by the poolside. The possibilities are endless. Why not utilize your slow cooker so you can spend more hours out of doors. No need to purchase a passport to Paris...you can find all of the romance right out your backdoor!
