Why I'm thankful 🍁

Thankful 🍁 I know I'm a day late.. But this is what I'm thankful for this year. ❤️ What is this? These are the donor cards of the ligaments that are in my knee after having a very rare knee reconstruction surgery (ACL, MPFL and meniscus) 😭 I'm able to write to them and tell them a little about myself/how their families' donation helped me. *cue tears* 😢 I am so thankful/grateful for these.

Latest size inclusivity fail..

So, I'm going to rant about size inclusivity for a moment. 😑 I'm a plus sized runner.. Meaning I wear a xl-2xl depending on the brand.. Certain brands I can't wear their clothes at all because they stop at a L and usually it's a small large at that.. So, I ordered a pair of CALIA by Carrie leggings from DICK'S Sporting Goods the other day because they were cute and I thought cheap ($33.97) Well, I saw a pop - up on my Facebook today for the same pants, but cheaper ($22.97)

Why are everyday shoes important?

In the winter, when everything is white out and the sun is bright, it acts as a shield to protect your eyes. Hats also keep the sweat out of your eyes and keep your hair tamed.
