Sunshine Auction

Wow my 15+ miler with Emily, Zoe and Janna was nothing short of AMAZING!! I am waiting for pictures from the girls, so I will have a FULL post soon. The weather here is sooo beautiful and has been all week. I feel so blessed to have such wonderful running conditions. As promised here are a couple more pictures from my photo shoot.

Looks like I am floating, LOVE IT!

Not sure I was ready to have my photo taken, but it turned out pretty good. so you know this path leads to a tree covered trail that loops around some wetland areas, it is VERY cool in the Summer months and the moss can get very slippery when wet.


The Sunshine Award has been going around Bloggy Land. I have been honored to receive this award from Bloggy Buddies, TMB, Darlene, Sarah, Kerrie, and Steph... The rules are that I am to pass this on to 12 Bloggers.. Hmmm!! This is TOUGH for me because I love all of you. Lets just call High Five Fridays every week my Link love Sunshine.

That path looks so amazing... I didn't realize it was moss. I thought it was some kind of camera trick making it appear green (blong moment).

GREAT idea with the silent auction. I'll be keeping an eye on the bids....
