Like most people, I have a serious weakness for sweets. Brownies, cakes, cookies, candy bars… if it's got chocolate in it, I probably want it. We all know the various reasons why you should limit how much sugar you consume (heart disease, zits, etc.) So we come up with life hacks to limit ourselves. Here's mine: I only let myself eat baked goods that I make.
My brand new husband and I are muddling through figuring out our money and I thought that seeing a financial adviser would be a great idea. I started looking for fee-only financial advisers in Los Angeles and I found that by and large, these folks are for rich people. One even said they won't talk to you if you make less than $200,000 per year. I feel like professional help is in order, but who do I get it from?
I am a nurse and have been doing that for about four years. But I had to quit my job out of sheer exhaustion. I love to cook. I had started to look into a small business that I can run out of my home kitchen. I am 100% sure I can do this, but my question is… is it worth the risk?

Remember when I introduced you to the barfing dragon drain spouts? Guess what popped up on our radar afterwards… Allow me to introduce you to the Zippy the newspaper delivering mail dragon!

Cambridge Bay is a fly-in only community north of the treeline and well within the Arctic circle. We've got a population of 1500 people, mostly Inuit. The community has two grocery stores, a hardware store, one bank, a post office, one restaurant, and a few government buildings. There are no bars, movie theatres, or shopping malls. It costs over $1000 one way to fly to the closest community. Despite that, there's a lot that going on here. We make our own fun at home.
