Day 4: Feeling Better

Yesterday afternoon my left eye started watering and itching like crazy. I didn’t think much of it until I got home, looked on the mirror and saw this: Arrg! Pink eye. Gross, right?!? Thankfully, there are over the counter drops you can take and 24 hours later, I’m feeling much better. Nothing like a minor […]

Day 3: Playing in leaves

There is something so fun about playing in leaves. Maybe it’s the crunch and the smell of Fall. I can’t put my finger on it. Today, a friend and I took our girls to the park for a picnic play date and ended up playing in the leaves. We ran, laughed and threw leaves at […]
