my dream salad + happy playlist

Instead of getting struck by lightening I decided to take it to the treadmill.0806150620bFive easy miles while jamming out to Spotify’s Wake Up Happy playlist.

Not kidding!

  1. We have monsoon season in the summer where we’ll get thunderstorms that roll in almost every day. I’ve been out caught in one before where there was thunder/lightening. Thankfully not terribly close to me and I was able to get home before it got too bad!
