{#OurProject52} – Eyes

If you’ve ever noticed in the majority of the photos I take in my car or outside I always have on sunglasses. While I do have a love for a good pair of shades mine serve a very important purpose…and not it’s not to “stunt” or “shine on them haters.”

My eyes are EXTREMELY sensitive to the sun. I mean extremely. I’ve spoken with the eye doctor about it on numerous occasions, tests have been done and nothing serious has been found other than the fact that my eyes are just sensitive. I’ll take that diagnosis and continue to feed my obsession, read guilty pleasure with designer sunglasses because if you have to wear them they may as well be fly. Continue Reading…

I needed to take one thing off my plate, so I decided to make that one thing cleaning the kitchen in the evening. I’ve recently introduced my daughter to wiping the counters and sweeping the floor while my son is in charge of the dishes.

I wonder how long that will last!

#CrazyHealthy Sometime Runner

I love to run. I do. I just don’t love to run in the cold so I have coined myself the “sometime runner” because I only run from February until October. Now is the time that I dust off my running shoes, and start eying new running gear because I’m about to take off.
