Largehearted Girl
I am an artist and massage therapist in north Alabama. I blog about massage and wellness news and occasional experiences concerning my massage practice and owning/operating my own business. My interests are as follows (though not necessarily in order): My husband, family, friends, gourmet food, ice cream, dark chocolate, cooking, gardening, home improvement, fine arts and crafts, music, reading, travel, people, psychology, spirituality, science, nature, animals, yoga, and health-related topics.
