Yesterday, Mark and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary. Similar to the day we got married, the weather was 70 and sunny and we soaked it in.

Monday evening I worked out after work and Gina and I recorded two podcasts starting at 7pm. It was our first time pulling a double. I ... Read More about Healthy Banana Muffins
Happy Monday morning! An oxymoron, no doubt. Especially when Michiganders spend the whole weekend playing in the sunshine.
