Happy Feet

Root Whole Body healing + injury prevention, pain-free living

I’m no fashionista.  Nor am I trying to do my best impression of one.  But I was reading Vogue the other day for the same reason I read each of Jane Austen’s books one after the other.  After I’d read one, I realized they aren’t so girly after all.  Jane Austen presents scathing critiques of the upper classes and hilarious …
