So 2017 sucked pretty bad but it made me count my blessings and did create some positive changes in my life as well. Like crazy people we chose to start the New Year doing the Edmonton Resolution 5k Run in spite of -24C with wind chills in the -30’s. I walked (my first 5k!) my sweetie ran (his 4th) and we faced the New Year as we mean to go - together, encouraging each other through challenging circumstances and celebrating one another’s triumphs. Here’s hoping that 2018 is good to us all and if it’s not so good that we all have someone to hold hands with while we fight through. Also that the next run I get talked into is warm and pleasant and that there’s a damn medal πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ #resolutionrun2018

So proud of these guys! This spring my sweet, amazing husband @allanrwinters decided to get in shape and set a goal of running a 5k by the end of summer. My beautiful baby sister has a big birthday next week and wanted to run a 5k and be in the best shape of her life by then. You guys this is their third race in the last couple months! πŸŽ‰ The big handsome guy in black is my son @twizzle_500 and he decided that he could run for a cupcake. Trained once this week by using the Max Trainer for 15 minutes πŸ˜‚ Oh to be in your 20's! #soproud #running #cupcakeclassic #edmonton

Hippo Hobo in Slow & Steady by @tulapink and black cork, bag pattern is by @emkiedesigns I made this for my mom so added a magnetic tab to close it, I thought it'd be easier then the swivel hook the pattern called for. Definitely be making more of these! #hippohobo #slowandsteady

Anyone want to weigh in on zippers for a Heidi Foldover Clutch?! Blue? Black? Or should I try to find a gold to go with my sparkly vinyl?
