Mount Whitney

I have had at least 3 different friends recently tell me that I start at least half of my stories with, "So I was at Trader Joe's..." They're not wrong though. I LOVE TRADER JOE'S. Back in Ohio, I used to think that Trader Joe's was a luxury that only the wealthy could afford due… Continue reading You can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a Trader Joe’s
