Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Unfortunately, over the past 18 months, we have seen a drastic surge in domestic violence incidents—many of us know someone who has been affected by domestic violence first-hand.

Simply Good: Big Changes Ahead, Plus the Big Announcement I Promised!

Phew! A lot has happened since our last Simply Good, which came out the day before the insurrection in the US Capitol. Since then we’ve seen our new administration take action after action to make progress for our country. A lot happened in January (does anyone else feel like it lasted for six months?).
