Even though they are teens now, clean living has my girls still smelling good naturally. And I DO still smell them, individually, and recognize them as my own. My oldest just told me yday how I smell "like Mommy" (she is not afraid to say stuff like this), and it isn't the first time. And we all know "Daddy smell" - hubby actually smells good, and just like, well, Daddy.

Right now it is raining here in the country, and I love the smell of spring/summer rain.
I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
