The Simple Joys
By Monica Barber

The fog of the day has yet to burn off entirely and there’s a few birds dancing in the trees. The day is fairly grey as Ms. M finds herself writing in Downtown Modesto. A smile crosses my face with the sight of a man and his wife walking their puppy. Every fiber of my being knows that this is one of the joys in life you take in without a worrying of trivial things. Life shouldn’t be an expensive treat to enjoy. Here’s a few ways to save a little with those you love this February…
