Happy (Bridle) Trails

As part of trying to get our 5,000 steps per day in over the weekends, John and I have been on the lookout for fun places to walk (assuming good weather.) We’re considering this our…

In the Groove (No, Not the Roxor One)

It’s week 3 – time to check in with the new state of things. I hope your week has been as fruitful as ours! Tuesday’s weigh-in produced similar results to last week’s. While John has…
