A Tennis Shoes and Jeans Hiatus

About 2 years ago, I gave up wearing jeans and tennis shoes for one month. It might sound like a strange thing to give up but you see, I have this love affair with tennis shoes. It all started when I was pregnant. I was deathly afraid of varicose veins, so I slipped into tennis …

Spring Break 2014 Review In Pictures

Spring Break 2014! It started with Easter and ended with my Grandmother's 85th Birthday Party.  I took a few days off and Stella and I made the best of the week. Instead of just writing about it, I decided it would be better to show in pictures. It all started with a visit from the …
