Celebrating 31 Years of Life

Rocking the shades Brandon gifted me.
Today was my 31st birthday. I love birthdays and everything they represent; another year to live and another year of new experiences. I woke up in a funk that was kinda hard to shake this morning. After treating myself to a 2 mile run with Maggie, making myself some scrambled egg whites loaded with veggies, and sipping a latte... I snapped out of my mood and was able enjoy MY day.

Autumn is just a little quicker than Maggie and I.
We made a FEAST for dinner. My sis-in-law and bro-in-law brought crab and snacks. Aut, Brandon and I made the rest.
Delicious brownies Aut made.
Last year I made a list of 30 things I love right now. I'm going to continue with tradition and do 31 things I love right now.

Angel Rocks

My sister Autumn is here with her husband Jeff right now and we've been having a great time. Today we went out Chena Hot Springs Road. We wandered around Chena Hot Springs Resort and grilled some sausages and then hiked Angel Rocks.

I'm back with Fat Mum Slim's July photo a day challenge. This month I didn't do any collages just to give myself a little challenge. I also took every picture myself with my iPhone, as usual, and tried to do it the day of the challenge, even if I didn't have cell coverage to post the pic on Instagram.

Here are APRIL, MAY and JUNE to browse through.
