Snow & A Sunshine 6 Miler on a New Trail!

Check out this picture I took out my window yesterday of the snow!! Crazy, huh? It’s so weird that we got snow this far south when no one farther north really did!

PFB Challenge #2: Fresh Thai Summer Rolls!

Today, I did something I’m very proud of: I made Thai Summer Rolls! And they were AWESOME. Yummmm!

My sweet friend Lauren even baked me Continue Reading …
