It feels like listening to your favorite song... It feels like a good hug, the kind where you keep on squeezing.... It feels like sunshine on your face... It feels like dancing when no one is looking... It feels like a big belly laugh, t... Read more

I lost 3 pounds?!?!?!? I think a lot of it was probably just waiting to come off considering that I had been teetering around the 130 area for several weeks, but seriously? Yesterday the little red numbers told me "129". Today they said "... Read more

Sometimes you just don't know how you feel. I've been thrown pretty far off my game for the last 2 weeks or so... I did some spring cleaning and messed up my back pretty badly. It forced me to stay in bed for a few days, muscle relaxers... Read more
