he first year I did the challenge my goal was to spend 2 hours a day outdoors. I'm a long way from that right now, so today, I was outdoors for over 2 hours, yes that was me longboarding through the Junction. I will do it again tomorrow, and hopefully Saturday and Sunday.

When I open my front door for the season I'm always reminded of a story a friend told me about her son saying one day as they drove past our house. "I love 
Anna's house " he said, "If the doors open-they're home; if the doors closed-they're not"

by Anna R February 19, 2017

Well here is the evidence of me stretching. This winter I started taking piano lessons. (I played as a teenager) and am loving it so much. Except, I am really, really bad at it.
