Our Get Away

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

We had a lovely time. The weather was beautiful and the scenery was beautiful. We went to this area on an anniversary get away many years ago, so it was nice to go back. We went to a place called Door County–it’s the part of Wisconsin that sticks out into Lake Michigan and it’s lovely! […]

Sneaking Away

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Lee surprised me with a day away for our anniversary. He chose a bed and breakfast in a scenic part of the state. It’s not exactly on our anniversary but with his schedule, it’s close enough.

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

I’m still getting my exercise in! I’m so tickled at this change in my life because it’s seriously not me! Last week, I purchased new cross trainers to help me during exercise. I’ve never purchased shoes for exercising before–I just wore my old tennies. I started the Jillian 30 Day Shred. On day 1, I […]
