For many of us, the concept of the unknown is positively terrifying.

I’ve been spending quite a bit of my time as of late harvesting grapes. Picking grapes occurs in a vineyard, which is (obviously) outdoors, so I’ve been hanging out with Mother Nature quite a bit.

Happiness, for many of us, is a vague term. What constitutes happiness?

Pets are, in my opinion, one of the greatest familial additions you can have. If we’re being honest, sometimes pets are better than our actual human family members.
