Today a new mall opened about two blocks from you condo in the city. It is spectacular. Fountains designed by the designer who did those for the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Stairs everywhere (also escalators and elevators for those who need them. Amazing stores that are new to our area. There are, in fact, about 80 stores anchored by Macy's and Nordstroms. I enjoyed looking at Tiffany's, H&M, etc. etc. However, it was the walk to the mall and all those steps up and down as well as on the level from place to place in this large space covering a full two blocks with a beautiful walkway over the street. I know I will be motivated to walk there more and more as the weather improves and as my excuses get packed away. The novelty will wear off eventually, but for now I love having a new place to walk with new sights to see on the trek. It made me smile from head to toe. I did pick up a couple small things I needed while there, but spent very little money, mostly just calories...I hope. Not so sure how to calculate, but the steps added up to over 13,000. Hooray for new avenues of motivation! Have a great day everyone!
