Sun Butter Bars

These are so easy to make and they really are so good. This is the recipe how it was written out, but below I will share with you, how I changed it up. 🥜-I no longer eat peanuts or peanut butter. They are horrible for digestion, meaning they are almost impossible to...

J O U R N E Y 16 Months 69 Weeks 486 Days 11,680 Hours 700,801 minutes That is how long it has been since being strangled, thrown up against a wall, screamed at, thrown down on concrete, grasping for air and thinking this man was about to kill me. And still I wait. He...
