Can I just be real for a minute?
I picked this book because it was short. Okay? I wasn’t REALLY interested in what a skier had to say about fitness. I mean, sure, Lindsay Vonn is a great athlete, but a skier fitness book? Really? It was the title that sold me. Strong is the New Beautiful? That’s an amazing title. Continue reading 10 Books in 10 Days- Strong is the New Beautiful
Jane Goodall is a remarkable woman. I admire all her work to educate the public about conservation. She’s known as the Chimpanzee Champion, but she’s so much more than just the chimp goddess. Continue reading 10 Books in 10 Days- Harvest for Hope
The Alchemist has been on my to read list since 2007. When I thought of doing 10 books in 10 days, I decided to look into this book on Scribd. This app has become a life-changer.

I’m gearing up to move to the mainland for a month while Chris is recuperating from his kidney transplant, and I play nurse-maid. I am wanting to finish a couple of books with Chris’ help, and work on my big projects of ZooFit- How Animals Changed My Health and Fitness, Stupid Questions, and Conservation Fitness Guide.
Finishing these projects will be a huge deal. I have a lot of work before they are ready to be sent off. One of those tasks is reading and studying comparable titles. I have the Scribd app on my phone which is perfect for listening to books while at work or in the car. Continue reading 10 Books in 10 Days
A few years ago today (43 to be exact), the stars and planets aligned perfectly to allow a singular event to manifest. A boy was born. He grew up in Kentucky and eventually made his way to Chicago for art school. At the ripe age of 22, the young man moved to North Carolina. This is where the paths of one young man and one young woman crossed. And their lives would never be the same. Continue reading To Chris, With Love
