Explore Your Own Backyard: Allentown Art Festival

Happy Weekend! Time for another installment of EXPLORING YOUR OWN BACKYARDexploreyourownbackyard

When I last left you in discussing my exploring adventures, I had taken a solo day trip to Corning, NY to visit the Museum of Glass there! As you may remember, I had the chance to make my own piece of glass fusing and was super excited to see the final result! Well, a friend that lives in town there was able to pick my piece up and send it to me! Unfortunately….THIS is what I saw when I opened the package….. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERABroken in two!

Lend a {Healthy} Hand #67: Second Chances

[Have you entered my NuttZo giveaway yet!? One more day to enter!!!]

Happy Friday everyone! I just wanted to give you all a quick thank you regarding my two posts about fitness and movement this week! I think they really convey how much I am learning from my exercise break and I can’t wait to continue to grow and progress as this journey continues. A lot of you have reached out to me and have expressed that you’re going through similar struggles. I know it can be hard to take the first step and commit to a break, but you body and mind will thank you for it. I promise. Exercise is a good thing, but if you aren’t healthy to begin with in your mind and body, then it only does harm to you.
