The Giving Tri — Giving back this holiday season

Tips & Tri-cks — Ask Michelle

TTF has always been intended to be a place to Nourish Your Inner Perspective through cooking, mindfulness, friendship and smiles.

Tri-umphant — How to stop procrastinating

I still can’t believe I was ever a child who opposed taking naps. I’m a master procrastinator. I can come up with every excuse in the book —too tired/headachey/weak/sick/sore/stressed—but at some point in your life you just have to get over yourself and do what needs to be done. Starting things early doesn’t get any […] Read more…
