Number 14




Jacket: Ross, Dress: Target, Belt: Rag-o-rama, Shoes: Target

I started out my Thanksgiving break with a 4 mile run this morning and I feel great. Whenever I run I instantly feel like I look better and thinner. Every picture today was a winner and I found it hard to pick just a handful. I love how exercise endorphines give such great confidence.

These pictures were taken at Oakland Cemetery and it's always weird to me how beautiful it is for being a place for the dead. It reminds me of Walt Whitman and his "Song of Myself:"

The smallest sprout shows there is really no death,
And if ever there was it led forward life, and does not wait at the
end to arrest it,
And ceas'd the moment life appear'd.

All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses,
And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.

Tomorrow will be the halfway point in the 30 for 30 challenge and I'm looking forward to keeping up my blog after the challenge is done. I have some cool ideas for some weekly/bi-weekly topics.

  5. One of my friends just suggested I check this cemetery out. It looks beautiful. I'm digging the brown belt you wore in the last few posts.

    Nice styling:)
