The Purchase

Between a stressful week at work and a recurrent knee injury, it was hard to keep my spirits up by the start of this weekend. Being physically active is a constant struggle for me.

I don’t mind it so much because I know that the moment I step out the door the bright Florida sunshine will come through the floor to ceiling glass windows of the galleries.
