The purpose of this page is to challenge me to open my eyes and truly see the world which surrounds me. So often we trudge though our daily routine, too busy or preoccupied to notice the little miracles happening all around us. I hope to capture, through the lens of a camera, glimpses of my sometimes mundane but glorious little world. I will attempt to post one snapshot each day to share with you. Enjoy!

So..... is it still considered 'skinny' if you eat the entire box?   Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Since I've recently started training, coaching and teaching for fitness and nutrition again, I felt I needed to get my own personal workout room set up.  I've been huffing and puffing, skipping, squatting and jumping in this space for the last year, but now it's an inviting and inspirational space!  I don't take clients in my home (yet!) but it certainly is a great motivator for me to workout.  Look for some of my upcoming group challenges in the near future!

The (human) boys went for haircuts before out Winter Break trip to Florida next week.  This beautiful landscape and scenery is also the location of the (puppy) daycare and boarding center.  Not a bad place to stay while the family is away!   Justin (the owner) is know locally as the dog whisperer.  His auntie Mary is a fabulous human hairstylist too!

Restaurant review assignment for Jordan... made me think of Karen Rene Ellis. The brats, frites and beer reminded us of Belgium and Germany, but also made us quite sluggish for the remainder of the day.

My new favorite hot drink. Spice chai tea shakeology latte. YUM!

Woke this morning to a gorgeous, hick blanket of snow. Boy Scout outing postponed, hot yoga cancelled. A wonderful Sunday with a 5 mile snow run, snowball war, hot drinks, blankets, sitting by the fireplace and a couple of good books.

It's decided to start snowing 30 minutes before I needed to drive home... on curving back roads to an almost remote island. Fun.  I'm a fair weather driver.
