Address sign, diy

The jellybean mailbox I had made had been sitting on my front table for a few weeks before we finally hung it up outside. Mostly, the delay was because I hated our number sign and didn’t want to hang up the mailbox without a new one, but wasn’t sure if I wanted to attempt to…

Here’s to ups and downs and staying down

Four years ago, after 18 months of hard work, I lost 108 pounds following Weight Watchers.  I learned how to cook cleanly, instead of reaching for a package, learned how to run longer then two minute intervals and most importantly learned to take care of myself.   Over the past four years I’ve had my ups…
