Group Exercise Love

DSC_0152_thumb.jpg

It’s days like today that have me convinced that group exercise is the best thing going. I took my favorite Wednesday boot camp class and had a blast.

I have always told Ryan that one of my favorite parts of the day occurs the moment we crawl into bed together at night.
