It is Easier to Do Than Worry About Not Doing

October 15, 2013 Weight Loss

Sunday I went apple picking with Hubby, my cousins Jamie and Ben, and their son (who I call my nephew) Colby. It has been several years since I went apple picking. For a long time I did not go because it was easier not to. It was easier not to have to worry about how […]
