I have two points for today that have to do with balance.
1) Last night I read a quote from Ghandi saying that happiness comes when what you do, think and say all align with each other. I think that is verrry wise, and reminds me that I need to work on that life balance.
2) Today upon opening my email I saw a message subject from New Balance reading, "Show Your Love for the USA". You better believe that got my attention! They were promoting their Made in USA sneakers since they are the only major athletic shoe company that still makes products here. I got jealous because some of the shoes were psychedelically cool looking, and I wanted them! However, I can gladly say that I already have a pair of their sneakers, and they're awesomely comfy, good quality and cute in a vintage 70's runner way! They withstand much Zumba, random hikes, and the berry infestation in my driveway! http://www.newbalance.com/New-Balance-Custom-993/US993,default,pd.html&partcodes=&null
Hello! I'm a 30 year old gal with a liking for doing year long projects. I've done a year without any form of chocolate, a year without coffee shops, and 5 years without gum (and I LOVE chocolate, coffee shops, and gum)! A year wearing only American Made should be the hardest yet, though*.
