My newest love affair: Scotland. I spent a week exploring Edinburgh, along with a day trip through the Scottish Highlands and Loch Ness.
The Paleo diet has been working very well for me. It's been almost a year, and I still feel great.

I usually hibernate near the air conditioner during the summer, because I usually hate everything about it. I hate the crowds, the sunshine, and most of all I hate the heat! Give me clouds and rain any day! This summer is a bit different, though. I'm enjoying being out in the sun, and walking around … Continue reading Love Where You Live
