Drawn To The Mountains

March 10, 2012

The drive from 695 to I-66 I could do without ever driving again. But the drive from I-66 down 29 to Cville is simply GORGEOUS! Especially with an orange sherbet sunset and black silhouetted mountains on the horizon.  Wish I had a third hand to take a photo! I munched on an apple, trail mix […]

An Apple A Day

October 3, 2011

…keeps the doctor away? Today I paid a visit to Dr. Huffman at CORE Chiropractic. I’m not having any issues, but I’ve been meaning to go for a test-the-waters appointment (and make sure my spine seems normal – it does!) since he opened the clinic.
