In March, my husband and I signed up for our “local” (see: nearest) YMCA gym membership. We have access to some amazing resources: pool, sauna (which I will never use because dry heat nauseates me), fitness centre, and a giant gymnasium to play Pickle Ball in. (Nope.

reading habits

In case you missed it, back in February I shared some analysis on my 2014 reading habits. I’ve set myself the challenge of reading 75 books this year, which may seem like a huge step up from the 46 I read last year, but watch the video to hear why I think this is a good idea.
