In our Beyond Layers class, we were given a challenge this week, based on something that Kim read in Oprah Magazine, which referenced Smith Magazine. It's all about writing a six-word memoir -- six words that describe your life. I came up with a bunch of them, but I guess the one I'm willing to share is shown in this picture:
Tomorrow my husband and I leave for a week in Florida. The primary purpose is to escape the dark winter days we experience here in Chicago. And we are also meeting up with my cousin and her husband. (My cousin is the one I did the bridgewalk with.) I'm sure we will come up with some grand adventures, including canoeing in the Everglades! Personally, I'm not as afraid of alligators as I am of heights, so it should be a wonderful time. If we survive (!), I'll be back here in a couple of weeks with some (hopefully) great pictures!
