Kasia's Photo Story

Posted by Kasia Faini on

Greetings once again to all! When we started on this little venture of ours, we laid out a pretty detailed plan. However business has it’s ways of interfering with the plans you think you have made. Delving into the world of Internet marketing is one of those things. It’s easy to be fooled when you go into that cesspool by those who with fancy words (hummingbird) and big talk, can steer you in a completely wrong direction and make you worse off than when you started.

A Valentine's Tradition

Posted by Kasia Faini on

When I think of Valentine's Day, I think back to growing up in Poland, where it was not celebrated.  We have a day called “Women's Day” on March 8th.  You could look out the window and see men running on the street with flowers to give to their sweethearts, wives, and Mothers. Not so different here, because I know my Husband will get something for Valentines for his Mom and our daughter as well.   What’s exciting for those of us who live in the cold of South Dakota, is that Valentines also means that spring is not far away....
