Love, blessings, and exercise 

That run and bike combo really did me well because I was sure running on some pretty fantastic exercise endorphins yesterday.  Maybe it’s a combination of truly feeling blessed by the family I have and the encouragement I get to workout and the feeling of accomplishment that settled in me after getting it done, but… Continue reading Love, blessings, and exercise
