Dove Advanced Care

When I was a young child, my parents told me they knew I’d be active. Every time I finished my bottle, I’d throw it across the room.

January 5, 2017

couples-travelHappy New Year everyone! I hope you had a great holiday. I ended up going back to San Francisco to celebrate Christmas with some family this season, which was really special. One of the things Tom and I desire as each year passes is to continue to experience new things, grow and to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In the past, we’ve selected warmer climates to travel to, but seeing that we’re based in Southern California, it’s not difficult to stumble across destinations that are colder than home. Packing for colder climates usually means heavier bags and thicker items. Below are 5 ways I pack for colder climates. Continue Reading…
