Those choices and decisions will lead to a destination. I want that destination to be a healthy, beautiful, and inspiring destination. My choices must lead me down that path,

Oh chica, is spring finally showing up?! Wow, such a glorious feeling. When nature wakes up, so do I. Puttering around the yard and planting some flowers just feels gooOood. Thank you for sending some of nature's finest my way...love my goodie. You get out there and walk your heart out, has to feel amazing to lace up your sneaks and leave the dang boots at home! Hugs for you, sweet Jen!
