Sugar Addiction?

Monday, February 04, 2013      14 comments

Water Activities and my bucket list

Monday, June 18, 2012      9 comments

I've always loved water activities. Though I never thought of myself as athletic since I couldn't catch, throw, kick, or hit a ball well, I learned to swim in preschool and loved competing (and winning fairly regularly) in swim meets. Later, m... Read more
